Cell Phones with Cameras That Detect Cancer?

15 Dec

It seems like science fiction, but some researchers say it will be a reality in the near future.

How?  It’s because Mother Nature can already “see” cancer and recently, scientists figured out how she does it.

This is pretty amazing.  The Mantis Shrimp is known as one of the most ferocious predators –pound-per-pound — in the ocean.  What it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in its toughness and incredible power.

But what is even more amazing are the eyes of the Mantis Shrimp.  According to researchers in Australia, the Mantis shrimp has a very unique pair of “compound eyes.”

As reported in ScienceAlert: “This type of eye is superbly tuned to detect polarised light – a type of light that reflects differently off different types of tissue, including cancerous or healthy tissue.”
