Janak Vancouver, British Columbia

Fair address: Vancouver Heritage Fair

Project: Frederick Banting

My project is about Frederick Banting. Frederick Banting managed to extract insulin from pancreatic extract of dogs.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

That everybody in his office were children

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

The lesson that I have learned is you can achieve anything in your life if you put your 100% focus into it

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

By saying are life would b better because they didn’t have much information on how much sugar in food then now

    What a great person/topic to choose Janak! As Canadians we should be very proud of Banting’s discovery. The whole world has benefited greatly by Banting’s discovery!
