Regenerative Medicine is Coming

My father recently died of stomach cancer. I feel so much pain inside after losing him. There is a medical revolution in personal genomics and regenerative medicine coming that may make such problems a thing of the past, but unfortunately for my father it's now too late. Nevertheless, these new breakthroughs will mean less pain and heartache for the future.

Here is the latest update on that story:

Sorry to hear this, San.
In the US, places with higher sunlight intensity have lower incidence of most kinds of cancer. This is in contrast to fears of skin cancer that people have. Even if we live in tropics, it is important to get exposure to sunshine and even then it may not be 100% preventive. The dark skinned among us need more sunlight.
