This seems too good to be true, but a 15-year old high-school freshman says he's come up with a paper sensor that could detect various forms of cancer....pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer in 5 minutes and at a cost of only 3 cents!
He had a very reputable facility to work on his project, Johns Hopkins University, so it wasn't like he fooled around in his parent's basement with a chemistry set. He had all the tools he needed. Sounds like if true it could change the face of cancer and hopefully promote early detection, even earlier than we're detecting it now. Think about it! Scientists, doctors and researchers are spending millions upon millions of dollars trying to find a cure, and a 15 year old finds out the answers by doing a science fair project!
He also says his findings are 170 times faster, 26,000 times cheaper and 400 times more sensitive and has a success rate of 90%!
Let me guess....the government and major drug companies don't like the competition.
Two things....does the AMA want to find a cancer cure? And I'll bet this will go nowhere unfortunately...there's no money in it for somebody.
Unfortunate, but it's worth a shot.
