Cancer for Dummies approaching 10,000 hits!

without comments

It’s been two weeks and my little experiment in scientific communication is coming along nicely. Cancer for Dummies has had almost 10K hits since I launched the first articles two weeks ago. It’s been both fun and enlightening to answer readers’ questions, and I will continue to post at least one article per week. Be sure to bookmark the Cancer for Dummies main page and check back regularly!

This week I opted to discuss genes, genetics, carcinogens, and HOW these come together to promote (or prevent) cancer:
What is a carcinogen? Lots of things can contribute to cancer development, but how?
Is cancer a genetic disease? Short answer: Yes. But most of the time it is not genetically heritable. Confused? No problem. Read on!

Lastly, if you have a question or topic you would like me to discuss, please do not hesitate to send it my way. This project exists for you, dear reader!
