Don't we all have cancer cells in us, though?
I guess I should actually read the article.
TL;DR If I get it right from the article, then they have to directly test on tissue from (potentially) cancerous cells. So, that doesn't really help at all, because detecting cancerous growth is a challenge in the first place. Plus: it only works for certain types of cancer. Sure, they assume it might work for other cancers too, but that's really just a guess at this point and it isn't something that's being backed up.
It's cool research, but they very definitely haven't "developed a 10-minute test that can detect the presence of cancer cells anywhere in the human body".
Sounds like something an aussie would do. Those Aussie, always going around inventing shit that makes the whole world's lives better... It's almost as if they're smarter than everyone else and that just makes me mad.
