And to sort through this breathy smor­gas­bord are new hand­held breathal­y­sers that an­a­lyse and iden­tify these chem­i­cals and ei­ther help de­sign a suit­able diet if there are foods that dis­agree with you (like gluten or lac­tose) or di­ag­nose 17 dif­fer­ent dis­eases, from can­cers to Parkin­son’s dis­ease.
