A new cancer test developed by scientists at Harvard and Northwestern University can predict with 100 percent accuracy whether someone will develop cancer up to thirteen years in the future. The technology studies the pattern of telomere growth as a predictive biomarker for cancer. Could knowing this information allow people to make lifestyle changes to lower their risk, and how would it affect health insurance policies?  Nik Zecevic and Jose Marcelino Ortiz of the Lip News takes a look at the story.

    I wouldn’t want to know. This was interesting to watch though as now I know more about the process of cancer formation. I would rather make the life style changes and live a healthy life in ignoranace, than know that cancer was potentially coming and get stressed out to the max about it… and we all know what stress can do!!

    If you read the paper, you will find the author never claim they can 100% predict cancer. No any scientific research group could predict for with 100% accuracy even with diagnostic samples, no to say 13 years by advance. Paper is as the link: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352396415001024

    The speech characteristics that predicted psychosis included breaks in the flow of meaning from one sentence to the next, and speech characterized by shorter phrases with less elaboration.
