How It Works  |  Issue 103  


HOW WE'LL CURE CANCER
Cancer has been around longer than we have. Traces have been found in 70
million-year-old dinosaur bones, in a 120,000-year-old Neanderthal rib, and in a human skeleton dating back to 1200 BCE. And almost every animal, even sharks and naked mole rats, can get the disease. It was once untreatable. Ancient Roman doctor Celsus wrote, “After excision, even when a scar has formed, none the less the disease has returned.” Even if the tumours were removed, they kept coming back, but in ancient times we didn’t fully understand exactly what we were up against. But we have come a long way since then, so in this issue you will find out how understanding one of humanity’s oldest adversaries could soon lead to a cure.
