Presented by: Sarah Everts, CTV Chair in Digital Science Journalism and Associate Professor, Carleton University and author of The Joy of Sweat: The Strange Science of Perspiration
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.
