High School Student Might Have Found the Cure for Cancer

Angela zhang high school student cure for cancer

Angela Zhang is on her way to curing cancer

What were you doing when you were 17 years old?

Probably not trying to find the cure for cancer, right?

Well this 17-year-old high school student is, and she is on a mission to save millions of lives.

Angela Zhang of Cupertino California says that she holds the recipe for curing cancer.

You probably are thinking ” how can a high school student have the knowledge to create such a cure?”

This is the exact same thing that her chemistry teacher along with scientists at the Stanford Laboratory were thinking.

Angela started studying doctorate level material on bio-engineering as a freshman in high school. She explained that it was confusing at first, but she eventually learned to decode the puzzling scientific language. A year later, Angela got herself into a lab at Stanford and started doing her own research.

According to CBS, this is what Angela is working on:

“Angela’s idea was to mix cancer medicine in a polymer that would attach to nanoparticles — nanoparticles that would then attach to cancer cells and show up on an MRI. so doctors could see exactly where the tumors are. Then she thought shat if you aimed an infrared light at the tumors to melt the polymer and release the medicine, thus killing the cancer cells while leaving healthy cells completely unharmed.”

When this was tested on mice, the tumors disappeared. The fact that her ideas became reality and this 17-year-old might have the cure to cancer is amazing. What an incredible accomplishment for such a young girl.

She actually cured a mouse of cancer!

Her concept has not been tested on humans yet, and supposedly it will take years to know if it will work on us. I would guess that scientists along with Angela are waiting to see how the mice react to this procedure years after it is done to see if it is safe to use on humans.

Angela entered her project in a science contest and won 100,000 dollars. She must be on to something.

        My blog is at http://americanexpatchiangmai.com

        An American Expat in Chiang Mai, Thailand

        Most of my blog is about living in Chiang Mai, of course, but I have another page (tabs to other pages on top) called “Fighting Cancer”, where I try and collect info on alternative cancer fighting and news about new treatments. I am a survivor of this disease, and like just about everybody else, have lots of friends and family that have gone through this process. News about this young lady in the Bay Area with her research is very good news. Hope she can stay away from the destructive elements of Big Pharma and actually help people.
