I like this kind of news! "Scientists say they now have a near-perfect picture of the genetic events that cause breast cancer."
We can't make enough progress against Cancer. Having lost my mother to it, I am really appreciative of you bringing these medical news to us Ack. I am hopeful in my lifetime we crack the code on various forms of cancer.
5 or more whorl finger prints is statistically as significant for breast cancer as a positive mammogram... figure that one out.
Number one thing that helps prevent it? There's a something like 87% reduction in chances of breast cancer if the woman has ever stopped ovulating in her life, for any reason at all. It's not clear for how long, probably at least two weeks.
Our approach to "cure" is confused because the reality is that there isn't anything simple about cancer and why it happens. It's not an on/off switch that's so easy to use...
I would agree as well; the article does point out, though, that drugs based on newly gained knowledge is at least 10 years away...which means that figuring out what to do with newly gained knowledge is a whole different problem of its own.
I am of course not at all skilled in medical science. From what I read and watch though, it seems that the rate of progress is increasing as of late. Computational power is coming into play allowing faster progress than ever before. Is my lay impression wrong in this regard?
