INTERNATIONAL: An 18-year-old boy has invented a bra that detects breast cancer

untitled-3INDEPENDENT (UK) – With the latest figures suggesting that 1 in 8 women will suffer from breast cancer in the UK alone, this latest invention is certainly good news.

Julian Rios Cantu, a student from Mexico, has reportedly developed a bra which can detect signs of breast cancer – early enough that the chances of a full recovery are far higher.

Oh and, he’s 18.

Cantu’s invention was inspired by his mother, whose cancer resulted in a double mastectomy.

Cantu and his three friends formed the company Higia Technologies, which applies biosensor development to medical advancement, and is “devoted to boosting women’s quality of life by attaining a professionalisation of the self-exploration method for the early and effective detection of breast cancer”.
