JSGS CSIP Forum: The Future of Sweat Surveillance: From Science to Policy

While most of society primarily worries about the odour stemming from their sweat, we should be more concerned about the secrets that perspiration reveals about our health and vices. Forensic chemists can now track the drugs we consume and whether we have certain cancers in just a fingerprint, which is inked in sweat. Smartwatches may soon monitor intoxicants in the wearer’s sweat, then send a push alert to suggest taking a cab home. Although sweat monitoring provides many exciting opportunities, we need policies that will protect citizen privacy.
