    This post is a huge example of why we cannot innovate. . .we think in limited ways and are bound by our own, limited view of the world.

    Then we start slamming the inventor, the poster, the big companies who should have already done this in 3 pages. . .. meanwhile, back at the ranch. . .if is all accurate and true, we missed the large point which is:
    No matter if he is a youngster, his sexual orientation or his modern haircut, he claims to have invented a 100% accurate detection tool for a killer disease. I am guessing that if you add up the deaths from the 3 kinds of cancer his diagnostic tool can detect, you would have a cancer research breakthrough which would make death preventable from some of the largest killers we still have. This is nothing short of amazing. All that he used was his brain power and, as he pointed out, the internet as a research tool instead of a social tool!

    Now I get to introduce my bias without being so overtly blatant. . .if this dies, it will die in the hands of the FDA, who is so busy protecting us! There are plenty of novel (new) innovations made every year that we will never have legal access for!

    Thank God Jack did not discover the cure for cancer. . .we might be focusing on how crappy his head microphone was in that video!

    OK, as you were.

    I pray this is legit and reproducible and that lives are saved!!

    Exactly why it shouldn't have been brought up in the first place. And first of all, the boy had no business making that known in the first place. It doesn't pertain, and normal people could give a sh*t less and get sick of having to hear about it.:)

    Cures for cancer and alternative energy has no chance, this would put too,many people out of work. Drug companies and oil companies want old technology so they can keep draining the public and making themselves rich

    Like term limits for politicians , no chance of curing cancer .

    persistent young man there.

    As for the "big drug companies" squashing it ....You can bet your ars they will...if they havent already ;)

    Had a shop teacher MAKE a 2 cylinder SBC (yup...cut the 1st to holes in half and the rear 2, remove the middle, weld!). Yielded 95 HP got 28 MPG in his ...CHEVETTE . The only interested company ... TOYOTA. This was back in 1988.

    I agree. The OP intentionally skewed the conversation by pointing out the kid was gay, really textbook trolling. So instead of the conversation being about a bright kid it became about being gay. Made for interesting responses I guess. Sad, really.
