Idea for a medical study: cancer

Someone needs to study why is it that certain organs and parts of the body are less likely to get cancer than others. For example, why is that eye cells don’t get cancer as often as skin cells, when they are both equally exposed to the sun all the time?

(And the eyes don’t get sunscreen on them.)

By figuring out what the differences are, then it may help us make some preventative medications people can take.

(It might not lead to anything, but it’s just a thought 🙂

The answer could lie not in the cells themselves, but in the individual DNA of the host. Meaning, there might not be any difference in the cells themselves between breast and appendix cancers, but the reason there are more breast cancers lays in how our DNA built those cells in the first place. For example, the eyes might have a much lower cancer rate due to something in how our DNA builds those cells.)

So making ourselves less prone to cancer, might mean going back into the host DNA, or finding a way to complement it or make it stronger.

Then, maybe we could tap into how DNA communicates within the cellular transformation that allows us to regenerate new cells. Then making those new cells stronger.

About hopeforanswers

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
