Cancer

This section will maintain key information and medical advancements relating to cancer – how to prevent it and what treatments are available.

Not every new story - just major breakthroughs and studies on ways to prevent. Particularly will be focusing on research results in humans - lots of promising treatments unfortunately never make it from the lab, through human trials, and onto the market.

Did you know? A handful of your cells turn cancerous EVERY DAY - but your immune system tracks them down and kills them before they turn into large-scale cancer.
