Hi everyone,

I came across this article and thought some of you might enjoy it:

It’s about Larry Smarr, a physics professor with inflammatory bowel disease. He’s collected a vast amount of data about himself including a 3D reconstruction of his gut, blood metabolite levels, stool samples, and FitBit.

It also raises an interesting point that I’d love to hear more opinions on: are you (as a QS-er) worried about the harms of over testing (because doctors certainly seem to be)?
