Cancer's most deadly assassin exists in every cell
A kill code is embedded in every cell in the body whose function may be to cause the self-destruction of cells that become cancerous, reports a new study. As soon as the cell's inner bodyguards sense it is mutating into cancer, they punch in the kill code to extinguish the mutating cell. Cancer can't become resistant to it, the study shows, making it a potentially bulletproof treatment. The next step is to turn synthetically duplicate the code and turn it into therapy. (2018-10-29)

Not enough fruits, vegetables grown to feed the planet, U of G study reveals
Study results show that the global agriculture system currently overproduces grains, fats and sugars, while production of fruits and vegetables and, to a smaller degree, protein is not sufficient to meet the nutritional needs of the current population. The researchers also found that shifting production to match nutritional dietary guidelines would require 50 million fewer hectares of arable land, because fruits and vegetables take less land to grow than grain, sugar and fat.

Cells that change jobs to fight diabetes
Diabetes is characterized by persistent high blood sugar levels that occur when certain cells in the pancreas -- the insulin-producing cells -- are destroyed or are no longer able to secrete insulin. Researchers at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, have succeeded in showing how part of the pancreatic cells, which usually produce other hormones, can take over from the damaged cells by starting to produce insulin. These results lead to envision entirely new therapeutic strategies. (2018-10-22)
