New medical ‘breathalyzer’ detects diseases via a patient’s
A new type of medical technology can detect 17 different diseases by ‘sniffing’ an afflicted patient’s breath, according to the American Chemical Society. The technology was inspired by the now-dated diagnoses method used by doctors before the advent of modern medical labs — sniffing a patient’s breath for signs of a particular disease. The technology is essentially a disease breathalyzer.

Some diseases can be detecting by smelling the patient’s breath, such as diabetes which may produce a particular type of sweet smell. Over the years, we’ve seen projects in which researchers create breathalyzers able to detect the properties of a particular disease, but these are generally limited in usage and therefore limited in value.....
