The next time you wipe yourself after doing your bathroom business, you might be holding some new clues about the future of your health. A number of companies are developing smart toilet paper that could possibly predict or detect more diseases than ever before.
The first one that just made news was announced by British scientists who said smart toilet paper could help fight obesity. Researchers said smart toilet paper is helping them understand the biological processes that create fat around the waist, better known as pot bellies.
The information was published in Nature Genetics. “It identifies the series of actions in the gut that fuel the build-up of fat around the waist. Fecal metabolome is a method that shows how the gut drives these processes and distributes fat.”
Doctors said that under the microscope, the stool samples revealed signs, or biomarkers, of internal fat around the waist.
Expect to be reading more about smart toilet paper and the diseases researchers can identify in the near future. Click here to read the Newsweek story.
