Story on, I think, NBC, maybe two years ago.

An MD/researcher predicting that certain people would soon be able to ingest a sensor the size of a grain of sand with their morning coffee/breakfast that would react to enzyme changes in the body. Once alerted, the sensor would bluetooth a flag to your cell phone that would activate a test message saying: "You're about to have a heart attack. Call your doctor!"

Maybe a days notice. And an app on your phone would also intercept that alert and send a 2nd text to your doctor or a relative to alert them.

If Dr. Shrank is correct and it will save some of that $100-Billion, the next issue may be "Why didn't they take the medication; and if it was due to the cost of the med - whadareya going to do about it?"
