Every time you breathe out, you are sending out a huge amount of information about yourself. Every breath contains more than 2,000 different volatile compounds in very low concentrations, and many of them are early warning signals of cancers and infections. Advanced new breath tests can now identify fingerprints of disease at the point-of-care in just a few minutes. Some day soon, you may be able to monitor your own health signals with a high-tech breathalyzer in your pocket.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
