    i hope these urine tests are accurate and actually work, because this would be so much more cost effective as well as painless, people would be more willing to go for their checkups, ect. i know prostate cancer runs in my family, im only 21 so i dont have to worry about it yet, but that test for it SUX i would like to avoid it if possible, so i hope this works!
