A research company in Alabama has developed a gum that can determine whether or not the chewer has cancer.

According to the researchers, our bodies have specific chemical reactions that are unique to each kind of cancer. Chewing the gum can absorb those chemicals and pinpoint the problem.

The biotech company making the gum said it will be available next year.
