New method detects early breast cancer via urine

Posted: 11 Jun 2015 06:19 AM PDT

Medical researchers have developed an approach for detecting breast cancer by means of urine samples. The method involves determining the concentration of molecules that regulate cell metabolism and that are often dysregulated in cancer cells. These molecules, referred to as microRNAs, enter into the urine over the blood. By determining the composition of microRNAs in the urine, the scientists succeeded in establishing with 91 percent accuracy whether a test subject was healthy or diseased.

Wasiq-

Compared to the previous non evolved state or the initial state you can say.

the above statement makes no sense. 

Are all religions a lie? but for what purpose then are they created in the first place ? 

Yes. Religion is belief in the supernatural. We have no evidence for any. Ignorance of nature is the mother of all religion and as such a knowledge of causes leads to the annihilation of it from the mind.

Everything that you will happens? Please can you think it hard that I become a millionaire. Thank you in advance.
