The word on the street is that the next iPhone and iOS 8 will boast a heavy emphasis on health, but a new report from the University of Houston (via 9to5Mac) shows that you achieve some impressive medical feats with the existing models. According to the study, a researcher from the university developed an app that can detect melanoma with an accuracy rate of 85 percent based on early tests.
Cancer is a miserable disease that has likely touched your life in one way or another, be it directly or distantly. We wish we had an app that would eliminate cancer from existence, but doctors and researchers are thankfully putting their efforts towards much more reasonable cures and solutions. So instead, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we've gathered eight apps designed to help in the fight against breast cancer. From raising awareness about the disease to helping you get informed and stay on top of regular check-ups, these apps are the best pocket-bound aid in the effort to stop breast cancer from infecting your life and loved ones.
A new documentary titled Disconnect is aiming to be the first feature-length documentary to expose the negative health effects of cell phones. Filmmaker Kevin Kunze has interviewed doctors, scientists, politicians, activists, victims -- and of course Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
