Is cancer a byproduct of the evolutionary process?
In this podcast, we are joined by Rafe Furst and Dr. Henry Heng to address questions like this.
Rafe Furst is an entrepreneur, investor, and on the board at the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Dr. Heng is returning guest from the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics at Wayne School of Medicine. Both Dr. Heng and Rafe Furst are passionate about cutting-edge cancer research, and in this episode, they share their thoughts on their discoveries about the evolutionary mechanisms of cancer.
Tune in now to hear them discuss:
How approaching cancer from an evolutionary standpoint may be a key factor in further research. The interconnectivity between genome coding and cancer cell replication. How the treatments we are currently using to fight cancer may be doing more harm than good. Hear them discuss this, and how understanding the integral facts about cancer cells is crucial for the progression of this research.
You can find Henry Heng’s book, Genome Chaos: Rethinking Genetics, Evolution, and Molecular Medicine here, and explore his recent work here. Additionally, keep an eye out for Richard Jacob’s book co-written by Henry Heng, Finding Genius: Understanding Cancer, coming out in the next couple of weeks.
