1. A connected health care system for monitoring one or more health statistics of a user, the connected health care system comprising:
a cloud computing network having at least one data processing unit that stores and processes data and a transceiver that receives and transmits data;
a connected surface having a contact surface that allows the user to stand thereon during normal daily activities, a data processing unit that stores and processes data, a transceiver that receives and transmits data, a weight sensor that measures weight and balance, and a power source; and
a connected implement having a handle, a data processing unit, a transceiver, a power source, and a salivary diagnostics system, the salivary diagnostics system further comprising:
a collection system that collects at least one saliva sample from the user,
a thermal-centrifugal filter system that treats the at least one saliva sample, where the collection system is detachably coupled to the thermal-centrifugal filter system, and
an evaluation system that analyzes the at least one saliva sample to detect and/or diagnose a disease or a disease risk characteristic, the thermal-centrifugal filter system and the evaluation system being enclosed within a single unit.
