Analyzing the actual health condition will be more easier for the doctors now as they have come out with a new test that will enable them to analyze the carbon and nitrogen found in the hair. Actually, this analysis of carbon and nitrogen will give them a better idea that how much a patient is grappling with anorexia nervosa and bulimia.
Throwing more light on it, the lead researcher Kent Hatch, an assistant professor of integrative biology at BYU said:
Your body records your eating habits in the hair. So, we can use that to tell the nutritional health of an individual.
Bringing out more information about it, Hatch revealed:
By taking some hairs from an individual and analyzing it for carbon and nitrogen, we can tell with 80 percent accuracy whether someone has anorexia or bulimia.
It means that now your hair will provide your health index to your doctor accurately and dauntlessly.
