Blog Cancer blood test ‘enormously exciting’
The earlier the better to detect a cancer for treatment. But it is neither practical nor economical to use colonoscopies to detect colorectal cancer to every adult or mammograms to check breast cancer to every woman every year. If there were easier and cheaper ways to test and detect cancers, many lives would be saved not to mention the pains and expenses for the treatment.
A team of scientists at John Hopkins University has announced a universal blood test for cancer. The new blood test hunts for mutations in genes that arise in cancer and proteins that are often released. When these early signals are detected, more specific tests can be conducted to identify if and what type of cancer is developing. This could make a significant difference to treat patients if early stage tumors were removed or killed.

Interest: Blog Coming of age : Why adults in Japan are getting younger
What does becoming an adult mean to the young? In Japan, 20-year-old has been considered the age to be adult since 1876. When a person reaches the age of adulthood, they are responsible for themselves legally and socially, and allowed to drink alcohol and smoke. There is even an official ceremony, called The Coming of Age Festival, to welcome new adults every year in January, where all new adults are celebrated by their respective local communities. 
In Japan, when a person reaches the age of 18, he or she can get a driver’s license, vote for elections, and get married if their guardians agree. After 2022 when the new laws take effect, they can marry without a parental consent, borrow loans and apply for credit cards, but they still have to wait to become 20 either to smoke or drink. 
Do you think 18 is the right age to be regarded as an adult? 
At what age should people be regarded as adults?
