“Blood Tracker”: Better Than Cure | Daily Prompt: The Next Big Thing

What will the next must-have technological innovation be? Jetpacks? Hoverboards? Wind-powered calculators? Photographers, show us INNOVATIVE.

What I am thinking about is more for the medical field.

Unless I am uninformed if this device already exists, I see some sort of “blood tracker.” It’s like this: when a baby is born, a sample of his blood is taken to the tracker. From that sample, it lists what possible illnesses or diseases the child may develop. And it could be used for annual check-ups, too.

I know medical people are already trained to detect and determine a malady. But not all can be spied out, early or otherwise.

As far as I have been told, there are certain ailments that could sleep or hide in the body and could not be traced for years, decades even, despite constant check-up. And then one day, it pops up and damages the body, either slowly or furiously. And that is what this “blood tracker” aims to do: hunt down and line up the possible suspects. And “just possible suspects”, in order to prepare a person physically and psychologically for something that might happen.

No one wants to be caught unaware of something that could’ve been prevented. Better than cure, right?

  1. Would you really want to know that you had 50/50 chance of coming down with some disease that may hereditary when you are 45? There are illnesses in my family that may be hereditary. Rather than live in fear waiting for them to manifest I choose to think that lifestyle choices and a healthy mental attitude could well prevent them occurring. So far I’m right.
