Corporate America and the Gov't will pay this kid large amounts of money for the trademark to "produce" it for him and it'll never appear on the market in order to protect all the people currently making bank on cancer in the medical world.
It's sad, but I suspect it will happen. Just like I think most "green" energy is a hoax and a reason to jack up oil prices. They could find an efficient form of alternate energy if they wanted to, but oil makes too much money. Just watch when the reserves really get low, they'll have some new "breakthrough" technology all of a sudden.
