Cancer, Huntsman Cancer Institute, University Of Chicago discussed on Dr. Daliah


Big things the Genesis communications network for making the show happen was, working. The dials Vic thanks. For tuning in we really. Do appreciate it don't forget to follow, us on Twitter Facebook that. After Dali show so how do we get the no cancer gene that elephants have apparently less than five percent of elephants die? From cancer researchers think they figured out why this was a study that came from the university of Chicago and elephants. Produce zombie jeans they call it can help protect the. Animal from cancer Now where do USA today they break it down they say humans and other. Animals carry one copy of a master tumor suppressor gene So we. Have one copy of this tumor suppressor so when. We, see us a cell? Go rogue a cell. Start to kind of go AWOL we've been Ken suppressant without a gene for that Elephants oh I've twenty copies scientists. Found that gene can trigger a quote zombie gene To, come back to life with a new purpose killing cells in, damage DNA Yeah. I'm a little confused by that deal I zombie I think of Walking Dead I, guess what they're saying is If there is a cell or a. Gene that, may not be active okay. Maybe a repressed or suppressed gene It could turn it into. Something that turns around and I, guess has a new sort of mission so that that's a concept of zombies zombies. Are humans that were fine then it's coming back from the dead and then turning around and. Then a nuisance that's kind of what. They're talking about here except not a nuisance and something that we want, we want cancer cells killed so cords Vincent Lynch and assistant professor human genetics at the university of Chicago, saying this is beneficial because of accident response to genetic mistakes or errors made when the DNA is being repaired. Getting rid of that cell to prevent a subsequent cancer scientists say the gene also ops elephants enjoy long lives they believe they came to existence. Twenty. Five to thirty million years. Ago And they say there were groundhog. Sized ancestors of modern elephants I don't remember my Evelyn class same elephants, pods but they said there yeah I took an evolution class I did the credits I wasn't my favorite, class 'cause I had a real tough time balancing bible and and evolution but it was cool I'm like okay. Well you know I could see how things I see the pictures again But still. Not my favorite class so researchers want to conduct more studies to find out how exactly the. Genes of elephants kill off the cells, and damage DNA then it can help humans and if we. Can figure out how to make, our body turn, around and fight off. Cancer, better in the lead to. Obviously better strategies to. Prevent entry cancer they say seventeen percent of people worldwide die of cancer and the statistics I've. Heard is one out. Of every, two. People, get some, sort of cancer now that doesn't mean died from it But one out. Of every two people we'll have, something turn cancerous whether it's little skin. Lesion whether it's breast colon prostate that's. Assuming they live long enough passed a heart attack so according to Joshua Schiffman. Professor pediatrics at the university of Utah he's an investigator at the Huntsman Cancer Institute he's as we can understand how these genomic changes are contributing to cancer, resistance then we can able to start, thinking about how do. We translate this to, our patients okay so you're, probably listening to this coin or. How do I for cancer I don't want cancer I don't want does ambi- Jean I just want to live my life I don't want to need medicine. Later I definitely don't want to have to deal with the after effects of that so mayo clinic has seven tips to reduce your risk of cancer and a, lot of, you guys already know this and you don't. Believe it when I when I tell you I don't smoke you gotta eat right you don't. Believe it but let me explain why Okay What we talk, about don't use. Tobacco we know smoking's leaked to larynx, cancer pancreatic, cancer and bladder, cancer lung, cancer and kidney, cancer cervical, cancer all sorts of. Stuff. Right Chewing tobacco to when. I tell you. To not use tobacco I I mean, I mean, avoided even second, even third, hand don't breathe, in something, that you don't need to If, someone's vaping near you get away from that, if someone's smoking a joint get away from that If there's a smoker in. The house tell them to, like leave quit smoking I. Can't tell you how many secondhand or, how many cancer cases or from secondhand You know you may not want to quit for, you well you know because I want to keep my. Weight, down and you know I like my habit and. I've lived a full life yeah but you got other people you're going to hurt So? Whether, you vape whether you smoke. Whether. You to keep in mind, new could, be causing cells to go rogue, so then you're, eating a healthy diet. Everybody hates to be told us, we got, eat healthier, you gotta healthier what does that mean well. Obviously, more fruits and vegetables okay and we're not talking potato you know we're, talking the green leafy vegetables the bright peppers that kind. Of, stuff they also found that the less the better But. The big thing is is the processed foods The more we eat. Processed foods parents the World Health Organization has found, we do have a slightly it a slightly. Higher increased risk of getting, certain types of cancer You know they said women who, eat a vegetarian diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil and. Mixed nuts may reduce the risk of breast cancer. We also know that the Mediterranean diet. Up the heart so, we really, need, to opt for fish over red. Leaves we need to choose healthy fats.
