    A fifteen-year-old boy named Jack Andraka has developed a cheap, easy and highly accurate paper sensor for the early detection of pancreatic cancer, and in May, he won the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in the medical and health sciences category, earning a $75,000 prize. If you live in America, chances are you've lost at least one relative or friend to the disease, because it's one of the most common (and most lethal) forms of cancer.

    Once the pharmaceuticals get ahold of it that piece of paper will cost $100,000 per patient and it won't be covered by insurance.

    When I was fifteen,I thought wouldn't it be great if there was a toilet paper that could detect disease from your shit....You could check a chart to what you had depending on what color it turned
