Cancer Breath Test!

Imagine begin able to check if you have cancer by taking a simple breath test. Researchers in the U.K. collected samples of breath from 335 people, 172 of which they knew had those cancers. The breath was then analyzed for compounds known to be associated with gastric and esophageal cancers as well as lung, bladder and breast cancer. The breath test proved to be 80% accurate, and in the future, screening for cancer could be a breath test.
