Cornell University engineers have designed a smartphone accessory and app that allows users to monitor their own blood cholesterol levels, Bloomberg Businessweek reported. Aside from an attachment the engineers developed, all that is needed to check cholesterol levels is a reagent test strip and a willingness to draw your own blood. The researchers are working on a smartphone app that can determine vitamin D levels, too.
