This Is What Your Food Looks Like Inside Your Body [VIDEO]
I'm not here to preach to you about your health, but if you've ever wondered what it looks like inside of your body when you're scarfing down grub and washing it down with your favorite beverage, you've come to the right place. A new art-science crossover project called Mouth to Anus (M2A, totally not kidding) is the brainchild of artist Stefani Bardin and gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo of Harvard.
Basically they developed two pills.
One of them carried pressure, temperature, and pH sensors to monitor the conditions inside the gastrointestinal tract. The other, more dramatically, recorded video footage while inside the body of participants. Both pill devices transmitted the information in a manner similar to Bluetooth, and were limited only by the eight hour battery life of the pill cam.
In vivid detail, the duo was able to capture how the stomach handles processed foods like ramen noodles and Gatorade compared to natural alternatives like handmade noodles and hibiscus tea. You can read more in depth details on the results of their joint project here, but one thing is for sure, this video will make you think twice about the things that you put into your body.
