In an exciting development based on previous research about the reasons cancer cells replicate, scientists have caused cancer cells from aggressive cell lines to return to normally limited replication.

If this pans out, it may well be a major step toward making cancer a disease that can normally be treated successfully without surgery, radiaton, or chemotherapy.

Elephants have a better way:  they have twenty times as many copies of an anti-cancer gene as humans do, which means they rarely get cancer:  that gene makes cancerous cells die before they can divide.

All we should have to do is splice extra copies of the human gene into our own DNA, and slash cancer risk drastically.
