The “Internet Of Food,” DNA Testing, And The Quest For The Perfect Diet

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Hippocrates may not have actually put it in quite those words, but that slogan summarizes his brand of doctoring. Just eat healthy food, right? Not so fast. It turns out that the connection between food and health is complicated by two facts discovered in recent decades.

Jump-Start Your Startup: 5 Ways to Attract Investors

“Who you listen to is probably the most fundamental influencer of the success of startups. Every decision you make will catch up to you, and you will either be dealing with the cleanup of that decision or celebrating the results. Listen to the right people and follow your gut.”

Test Your Own Food, Water and Weed for Purity, Quality

The label says it’s organic. But can you really trust the label? Soon you’ll be able to test the food you buy, the water you drink and more with a handheld gadget from MyDx, a company founded by former Pfizer scientist Daniel Yazbeck. Here’s my conversation with Daniel Yazbeck.

Seventh Sense Blog Sensor Detects Harmful Chemicals In Water

There does not seem to be anything truly unique about sensors that detect chemicals and other substances in water and other liquids. They have been around and in numerous varieties for quite some time. However, MyDx, Inc., makers of the first multi-use hand-held chemical analyzer for consumers, is launching its AquaDx sensor chip for the analysis of toxic chemicals in water. The company is and is now accepting pre-orders at special pricing for early adopters.

MyDx Introduces AquaDx Sensor Chip for Examining Toxic Chemicals in Water

“While AquaDx is highly anticipated to provide a dramatic increase to our earnings power, this launch is especially gratifying for myself and all MyDx employees at a personal level given that everyone, worldwide, should have access to clean, safe drinking water. AquaDx will empower consumers to test their water safety in a simple and practical way,” Mr. Yazbeck concluded.

Groundbreaking AquaDx chip analyzes the safety of drinking water in real time

A new water-testing chip allows users to check for lead, pesticides, heavy metals, and alkalinity in drinking water wherever they may roam. As an accessory to the MyDx system, AquaDx is one of four chips in development to help consumers test the safety of everyday elements by sending results straight to their smartphones in six minutes.

New sensor chip will give you quick analysis of your drinking water

The AquaDx chip connects to the MyDx analyzer, which connects to a smartphone app via Bluetooth that uploads data from a physical water profile to the cloud for analysis and then downloads a full report. AquaDx sensors that work with the chip are disposable and single use. Three different sensors included in the package can test for pesticides and heavy metals, according to U.S. military standards; lead, using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards; and total hardness, chlorine, alkalinity and pH.

A Device for a Better Life? An FYI on MyDX

While this is certainly good news for cannabis consumers, the better news is the design and functionality of the device can be applied to other consumables like food and beverages, and even the air we breathe. As we speak, the app is being tweaked so it will soon let users test chemicals in their food (Organa), drink (Aqua), and air quality (Aero).

The mission of MyDx – put chemicals testing in the hands of consumers

I don’t write about startups often – mostly because I find their ambitions limited and uninspiring. That goes double for consumer tech startups, but I’m making an exception for MyDx. The mission of MyDx, aka “my diagnostic,” is to put toxin/chemicals testing in the hands of consumers.

Test to Find Out if Your Foods Are Really Organic

Consumers continue to call for the right to know not only how their food is grown, but what’s in their food. With the growth of the movement has been the growth of the organic industry.
