This program informs your students of the latest research on how cancers form and how they can be treated, the role of genes and gene mutations, as well as lifestyle changes that can prevent over 30% of cancers. Scientists are making great strides in the study of cancers. Video's engaging animations clearly illustrate what we have learned about how normal cells turn into cancerous cells. Program details the role of genes and gene mutations while examining how environmental factors (such as smoking) can cause genes to mutate. Students also see the human face of cancer through profiles of a teen survivor of lymphoblastic leukemia and other cancer survivors. Your students will understand the importance of early cancer screening plus steps they can take to prevent or greatly improve the outcome of a diagnosis of cancer.
