I always thought the suicide mechanism was there to ensure that if the cell went haywire, it couldn't do much damage. It's exactly what goes wrong
in a cancerous cell - it keeps growing, and it should be killed - but somehow the suicide mechanism is broken.
So this drug turns all cells into potential cancer - and subsequently 'gives them the opportunity to recover'. This opportunity should be the
opportunity of a cell's lifetime, then - either it fixes the cell, or everything ends up horribly wrong.. Under normal circumstances, our DNA may
mutate every now and then (free radicals in our body, yadayada) - yet again, when no suicide mechanism is in place, the recovery of the cell may
not fail.. How do those drugs ensure that?
