A New Pill That Tracks Your Farts



People who suffer with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have a hard life sometimes but aussie scientists have not invented a pill that tracks your farts!

The capsule, which is understood to be the size of a vitamin, transmits hydrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen levels while in the digestive system.

This will greatly help diagnosis and understanding of other intestinal issues. So far, a successful human trial has been completed and scientists are looking to raise funds for phase-two trials.

Could this help you?
