Google’s new project will be a life-savior for all those diabetics who are merely surviving in the world of blood and pain and it will not be the first time that efforts are being made to combat diabetes, it has already developed a contact lens for keeping blood glucose levels under check. Google has also inked a deal with Dexcom, a medical equipment company for manufacturing an affordable glucose monitoring device.
