The latest advance in a growing field of sensors that can be swallowed are capsules that could eventually be used in people to find signs of ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, or even colon cancer. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology tested capsules an inch long (they would be made smaller for humans) in pigs and correctly detected signs of internal bleeding. Though testing on humans is years off, shrinking the capsule to a normal pill size could be achieved by combining its three electronic chips. But the capsules could be customized to diagnose multiple conditions and help doctors monitor tricky-to-reach parts of the small intestine for people with Crohn's disease. Researcher Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia commented, "The work is yet another step toward showing the great promises of smart, ingestible capsules." tech technews health healthtech: HEALTH @TECH SCIENTISTS HAVE DEVELOPED A CAPSULE PACKED WITH TINY ELECTRONICS THAT YOU SWALLOW TO SPOT HEALTH PROBLEMS FROM THE INSIDE. guff (follow @tech for more!)

Amazing facts about the human bodyomg-humor.tumblr.com: 8 AMAZIHG FACTS ABOUT THE HUMAN BODY Your stomach gets a fresh look every 3-4 days. The organ changes its shape frequently due to the impact of the strong acids it uses to digest food. Your nose is (notas) impressive (as a dog's nose). Nevertheless, it can still distinguish more than 50,000 different odors. 3 You may not be unique, but your tongue surely is. The tongue of each human being has its distinct imprint just as the fingers do. 4 Your heart pumps 7,500+ liters of blood per day. The blood then goes through vessels with a total lenght of up to 100,000 km (62,000+ miles). Your skin houses billions of bacteria. There's 32 million of them for each square cm (206 mio for a square inch) of your skin but fortunately for you most of them are not harmful. The lenght of your small intestine is 4 times bigger than your body's height. The average adult has between 6-8 m (20-26 ft) of small intestine in their abdomen. Your bones are 4 times stronger than concrete. 1 cm3 of bone tissue can withstand about 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs) of pressure. Impressive, considering that half of it is made of water. While you are sleeping, your body grows by 8 mm (0.3"). The growth is neutralized during the next day due to the pressure that gravity imposes on your spinal discs, causing them to shrink back to their original size.
