Scientists from the University of Oregon has developed a portable device to determine the risk posed by chemical substances from the outside world, writes Financila Express. Today in the air is determined by a huge number of compounds, some of which represent a real danger for residents of big cities.
A number of harmful chemicals found in conventional products of mass consumption. Not every substance has been tested for toxicity. Previously harmful chemicals can be determined only through a cumbersome device. Now the usual silicone bracelet will tell the person about the potential dangers.
