Jack Andraka , a 15-year-old teenager from Crownsville, Maryland is a teen genius who has invented a new way to detect the deadly pancreatic cancer.
In fact, the teenager started working on this issue as a result of the death of his close friend, caused by pancreatic cancer. Because of this tragedy, Jack’s resolution is to be much more proactive and not just to accept the situation without attempting to change it.
Unfortunately, this type of cancer – pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of deaths related to cancer because of its late detection. Moreover, the popular tests besides being 60 years old, they are expensive testing methods ($ 800) that miss 30% of the all cases of pancreatic cancer.
Jack has been focused on the fact that a major problem was the lack of tests that will offer an early detection, so he came up with a test capable for cancer detection at the earliest stage.
This Jack’s test estimated as 100% accurate cancer test, costs only 3 cents and only takes 5 minutes. For doing this test are used Google and Wikipedia – two most frequently used online resources that are available to almost anyone with an internet connection.
In addition, this test invented by this genius young boy is faster for 168 times, 26,000 times cheaper and 400 times more sensitive from the current detection standard.
This young boy’s discovery can be of great significance in the cancer treatments, and undoubtedly, it embarrass the cancer industry.
