Affecting nearly half of the world’s population, cancer is common, and if left untreated, deadly. But how do we combat a disease so wide spread and lethal? We’ve gathered tips for preventing cancer and catching it while it is still treatable.
A biochemist by the name ofDr. Jung-Mo Ahn and his team at the University of Texas-Dallas discovered how to synthesize a molecule that kills a broad spectrum of hard-to-treat cancers, including triple-negative breast cancer, by exploiting a weakness in cells not previously targeted by other drugs. This fascinating finding is giving hope to patients and doctors and causing quite the stir in the scientific world.
