I have a cancer phobia.
Really, to some degree, everyone does. I mean, who wants cancer? No one. And who’s afraid of getting cancer because a hefty percentage of the people they know/knew have/had it? Everyone.
But I think dwell on it a little more than the average 31 year old. It might be because it took two of my grandparents, my father, my mother-in-law and countless others I’ve known. It might be because I’m prone to a little health anxiety. It’s probably both and more.
If you want to know more about this… situation of mine, go here.
Anyway, because of my canceritis, I sort of cling to every new development I hear about the ongoing search for a cure. While I have opinions about how much certain industry moguls may or may not want to eradicate the money making cancer juggernaut, I’m heartened when the science advances.
So I thought this article about a new drug that targets cancer controlling pathways was interesting and encouraging. I hope you do as well.
