Let's talk cancer
Ok, there are many varieties of cancers out there, many causes, many forms. I would like to talk about a specific gene that affects certain cancers, including brain cancer
p53 is a putative self defense gene which is activated when cellular DNA is damaged. The induced p53 protein halts the proliferation process, allowing the cells time to repair damaged DNA or to undergo programmed cell death, thus protecting the host from abnormal cell growth. Recent research on many human cancers have shown that tumors with wild type p53 and normal p53 function have relatively higher sensitivity to radiation therapy.
One of the major area of cancer research revovles around how p53 mutations result in the halting of cell apoptosis (programmed cell death). My question is simple, if a perfect being would have designed such perfection, why this obvious...anomaly. Does not seem like the works of a great creater.
