Body check

What if there were a device that could detect potential health problems before they happened?

Turns out, there just might be.

At least that's what the manufacturer claims, and many health practitioners swear by it.

But many others look at the device with a healthy dose of skepticism.

The device uses electrodes, like those in an EKG, and scans your entire body.

In less than five minutes, this body scan, can draw out a three-dimensional model showing just what's going on in your body.

The scans cost between 50 and 100-dollars, but many critics say there are no scientific studies supporting claims of the device.

The device has been used in Europe since 2001.
