With the refined diet and packaged unnatural foods of today’s supermarket culture, diabetes is a menace. It plagues about one out of every 20 people on the planet. Like its twin disease of obesity, it too is becoming rife in society.
The old pinprick method was getting outdated. It is painful and too crude for our times. So the experts at Google, who are adept at the moon-shot, decided to something about this conundrum.
One method that was foolproof was the measurement of blood glucose in tears. Since almost all the bodily fluids of diabetics have trace amounts of sugar in them, the usage of a pair of contact lenses to gauge the glucose levels would be appropriate.
The microchips and sensors as well as LEDs implanted within the thin material of the contact lenses will alert the wearer as to his or her blood glucose levels. The whole process of invention is underway and matters are beingdiscussed with the FDA. This will be a seminal step in the struggle against the curse of diabetes.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
