from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The fight against cancer is a tough one, but new treatments are coming along that might put an end to more forms of it.

That sounds like pretty far out research, but there are a lot of different approaches to tackling cancer. Here are just a few promising ones.

    Has anyone used zombie bacteria for any other illness? You'd think that cancer wouldn't be the only disease that needed targeted drugs.
