Breastfeeding offers a remarkable benefit for mothers: a reduced risk of breast cancer. Studies suggest that the longer a woman breastfeeds, the lower her chances of developing this disease.

The goal of cancer screening is to detect cancer early when the chances of survival are higher compared to discovering the disease after symptoms appear. While screenings serve as essential tools in this endeavor, it is crucial to acknowledge their limitations and associated risks.

Innovative 3D cell culturing method offers new insights into cancer cell mechanicsDeveloping chemotherapy drugs against breast cancer is costly, slow, and often inefficient, with more than 95% of screened drug candidates failing in patient trials.
 
 
 Mutated TREX1 gene linked to catastrophic DNA damage and deadly rare disease
 
Mutated TREX1 gene linked to catastrophic DNA damage and deadly rare diseaseTREX1 is a gene that is supposed to direct the maintenance of the entire body's DNA, but new research shows that when people are born with mutated TREX1, it causes catastrophic damage to the DNA over time, resulting in a deadly rare disease called retinal vasculopathy with cerebral leukoencephalopathy (RVCL).
