Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

But it really… it feels like a great cause to be involved with because bullying can change how people grow up and what decisions they make, and it’s important to know that they’ve got a voice. And if you are slightly different, or - you know, Kieren and In The Flesh, it explores otherness and being different, so for me the cause - the antibullying charity is linked with that, it feels like a good thing to be involved with.
