US Scientists crack cancer genes, allowing them to better diagnosis patients who have been negatively blessed with various cancers. This allows them
to make individual specific treatments based on a patients genetics, it appears that the data shows cancer is more genetic and a one size fits all
treatment would be less effective then this route.
US scientists have cracked the entire genetic code of breast and colon cancers, offering new treatment hopes.
The genetic map shows that nearly 200 mutated genes, most previously unknown, help tumours emerge, grow and spread.
The discovery could also lead to better ways to diagnose cancer in its early, most treatable stages, and personalised treatments, Science reports.
The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center say the findings suggest cancer is more complex than experts had believed.

Wow! This is pretty cool. I feel this brings us one step closer to finding a cure for cancer. You hear about all the rumors going around about the
cure to cancer being out there just not available or you get the normal take this it will fix you right up or Hey! Let’s just nuke it with chemo
responses from the Doctors.
This research shows that with the cancer being related to the various junk DNA in the Human Genome, it will allow for individual treatment maybe
giving the option t not get your insides fried with radiation.
In the future when D.N.A. scanning becomes more common place it will be a lot easier to catch cancer before it becomes a problem, allowing you to cut
it off at the pass so to speak.
