Your Smartphone a Jaundice Meter?

I just love smartphone technology. It’s power to the people; putting self-awareness back into the hands of the patient, instead of doctors pretending it’s some kind of mystery ceremony, that only the initiated priests, who have personal contact with the gods, could possibly understand. Nowadays you can get little apps that will tell you, for example, how your heart rate variability scores. This number is among the most important measures of stress-relation we have.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder in the world.  More than 2 billion people (30% of the world population) are...
