15-Year-Old Puts Cancer Industry to Shame: Develops 100% Accurate Cancer Test Using Google
We shall start this article with one of the greatest quotes of Thomas Edison: “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percents perspiration.”
Thomas Edison was an American inventor who created the light bulb. His process of creating the light bulb included fabrication and testing of 3, 000 theories so as to be created an element that would lower the electrical power amount required to power a light bulb, and testing of more than 6, 000 types of filament that will make light bulb durable more than a few hours. In 1880 he produced 16 watt bulb that lasted for 1500 hours. Many of us would quit after the first time they would experience a failure, but this was not the case with Edison, he was so determined and convinced that it will work. We can rightly say that he is one of those individuals that carve a path to the future.
Jack Andraka a 15 year old boy from Crownsville, Maryland is the Teen Prodigy of Pancreatic Cancer who invented a new method that can detect a lethal cancer. A friend of Jack, who was more like an uncle to him, died of pancreatic cancer. Therefore he decided to be more proactive rather than just accepting the situation. He came to conclusion that the problem was a lack of early detection tests and the test that he came up with would be able to detect cancer in its earliest stage. Unfortunately, the Pancreatic Cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths (34, 000 taken lives so far) due to the fact that the cancer is not detected in time. Other factors are also the 60 years old and expensive ($ 800) testing methods and they miss 30% of all pancreatic cancers.
The test Jack developed is:
168 times faster
26,000 times less expensive
400 times more sensitive than the current standard of detection
Jack developed this 100 % accurate cancer test that cost 3 cents and takes only 5 minutes using Google and Wikipedia-online resources available almost to everyone who has an internet connection.
