The Doctors: Necklace Tracks Everything You Eat
Are you wearing a fitness tracker right now? There’s a good chance you have one on your wrist right now. But would you wear a necklace that tracks every single bite of food you swallow. Scientists are creating a library that catalogs the unique sounds of the foods we eat and then the creators are pairing the library with a food tracker necklace complete with a microphone that is then sent to a smartphone via Bluetooth, to tell you exactly what you’ve eaten. The necklace reportedly may suggest healthier eating.
Attorney Areva Martin chimed in saying that she didn’t want to be shamed every time she put a piece of food in her mouth. Dr Travis Stork knows that food can be medicine or poison, but shaming only makes things worse, not better. Everyone should have a positive relationship with food if they want to take care of their health.
Would you wear a necklace like this, even if it shamed you for poor eating habits?
