Listen: Cancer, Nieve Lucien, Japan discussed on Food for Thought
"They're doing things. They shouldn't mutated. They just following this will be like, Godzilla stomping around Japan, kind of thing, and that, that makes Jiechi and it's probably why beating cancer is the hardest technical challenge humans will ever face. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. If you've got more than one cell to up together, basically, you can get cancer. I know there's and it goes all the way back into as far back as he streak goes effectively. So there's this fossilized dinosaurs of cancer, the oldest fossilized when he's a fish from three hundred million years ago. Yeah. It's, it's, it's, it's everywhere and actually that's quite interesting, and it self because the way that we became these creatures who can sort of to condones, and do whatever is, is through a period of Lucia, these tiny little genetic changes, which sometimes Mike you advantage say end up with, like slightly longer fins swim a bit better. Whatever now in order for those genetic changes to happen, a mistake has happened in the DNA, which gives you a survival benefit. But most of the time these mistakes happen, they don't give you survival benefit they caused the cells to go wrong. So actually cancer Nieve Lucien of the same thing that to hall of the same coin.
