Japanese researchers developed a self propelling endoscope device that will help doctors through capturing hard-to-seen ailments inside the human body.

Japanese researchers made another breakthrough on medical science. They’ve created the world’s first self propelled endoscopy device, a remote controlled tadpole-like instrument – called Mermaid –  that acts like a camera that can swim through human digestive track gathering images along its way out.

The Mermaid is a small endoscope that is used to gather photos of human colons while travelling through the entire track. But it don’t rely on natural muscle contraction to move inside a human body. The device moves by a magnetic machinery that is being controlled by a doctor through a remote control. Mermaid is just 0.4 inches in diameter and two inches long, making it easy to enter the human body by swallowing it or through the other end of the digestive tract.

It just take several hours for the device to travel the entire system, from esophagus to the colon. This medical breakthrough will be a great help on detecting hard-to-see ailments like Cancer to will help prevent it from getting worse.

Cellphone radiation may cause cancer — W.H.O.

WHO included cellphones to the list of "possibly carcinogenic to humans." However, evidences to prove this statement are still limited.

There are 31 scientists of the The World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) who included cellphones as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Mobile handsets are akin to DDT and gasoline engine exhaust on the list.

The CTIA Vice President for Public Affairs, John Wall, says that “this IARC classification does not mean cellphones cause cancer. Under IARC rules, limited evidence from statistical studies can be found even though bias and other data flaws may be the basis for the results.”

IARC Director, Christopher Wild, said in a statement: “It is important that additional research be conducted into the long term, heavy use of mobile phones. Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure such as hands free devices or texting.”
