Every time we use the toilet we are flushing data that could save our life.
How differently would we approach health if toilets were able to analyze and transmit the data safely to a private dashboard on which we could identify key trends about our health?
About the data we are flushing
In The Netherlands, drug use is being trace through sewage: Tracing drug use in Dutch cities through sewage
“Think about it. The modern flush toilet system was designed in Great Britain in 1596 by John Harington (known as Queen Elizabeth I’s “saucy Godson”), and was popularized in the 1880s with the success of Thomas Crapper’s toilet manufacturing company. (No, that’s not where the word comes from.) Beyond advanced valves and low-consumption flushing, today’s American toilets are pretty similar to Crapper’s models. That’s over one hundred years without a major refresh!” http://www.popsci.com/scitech/article/2009-03/toilet-tech
