iPhone Device Tells if Your Food is Really Organic

These days it’s impossible to trust anything. We go to the store or market and buy what we believe is an organic head of lettuce but it’s virtually impossible to know whether that label meets our own standards for healthy food. Which means that we could be consuming nasty chemicals without even realizing it.

Unless you grow your own food on a roof or balcony or in traditional backyard garden, the Lapka iPhone device might be for you. Not only does it detect chemical and radiation threats, but it also measures temperature and humidity in order to help users identify the healthiest combination for them.

It’s a sad state of affairs when we need an iPhone application to tell us whether our food is healthy or not. But people who live in areas where government regulations are lax or when radiation is a real threat could benefit from this nifty device.

Each measuring device not only identifies contaminated food and environments but also provides detailed information about the consequences of – say – eating a mouthful of fertilizers, giving people a much greater awareness. And that’s a good thing. Right?

The product will be released in September.
