Sensors that can be fixed to your teeth could analyze what you eat and allows studies to track the correlations between diet and health. Monitoring in real time what happens in and around our bodies can be invaluable in the context of health care or clinical studies. Researchers at Tufts University have now invented a technology that could make that easier. In a paper to be published the journal Advanced Materials, researchers note that future adaptations of these sensors could enable the detection and recording of a wide range of nutrients, chemicals, and physiological states.
