A new electronic device and mobile app called pd.id (Personal Drink ID), aims to help prevent sexual assaults that occur after a victim has been unknowingly drugged, CNN Money reports.


 

Sexual assault is an epidemic in the United States. Nearly one in five -- 20 million -- U.S. women and girls have been raped in their lifetimes, and 3 million U.S. women have experienced drug-facilitated rape, according to a 2007 study by the Medical University of South Carolina. Another 1.6 million men and boys have also been victims of sexual assault, according to a similar study conducted by the U.S. Center for Disease Control in 2010.
