197 scientists told this boy no. Why? Because we are a culture where innovation has been almost totally corporatized. Ideas like this effective and ridiculously cheap test for pancreatic cancer die on the vine, and for what reason? Because a 15-year-old thought of it? Because an outsider to the scientific "club" thought of it? Because the solution is inexpensive to the consumer? At 15 years of age, this boy still has his idealism; it has not been beaten out of him and forged into a defeatist attitude or life long apathy. I hope it never will.
