I may be deathly afraid of bees, but since I'm more afraid of actual death, Susana Soares' glass apparatus has me more intrigued than frightened. According to research, bees have a phenomenal odor perception. So intense is this ability that they are able to detect diseases from a person's breath.

Susana Soares has been devising ways to use this for medical purposes. She designed this glass apparatus as one way of bringing our breath to bees without harming them or ourselves. Only time will tell if it works. Stats for Disease-Detecting Insects Trending: Older & Mild
