Technology, Education, Design (TED) Talk  

by Mina Bissell 


For years scientists and doctors advised, but could not prove, that having a healthy immune system and a healthy body can reduce the chances of getting cancer. After 30 years of research and experimental work, Mina Bissell, breast cancer researcher, gives a TED talk on how our bodies interact with cancer and how "form" and microenvironment play a key role in malignant development.   Her TED talk is in the same vein as thought-provoking keynote addresses at cancer conferences.


Opposed by the dominant theory that one oncogene is enough to cause cancer, she raises a simple question - if every cell in our bodies carries the same genetic information, why doesn't cancer attack an entire body? The answer is hidden in the extracellular matrix of each cell. What scientists previously thought was just scaffolding for our cells is actually vital in maintaining a healthy cell structure.


Mina's research is revolutionary in how we approach cancer treatment. It opens up an entire new horizon in medical science - the study of "form". Medical professionals involved in any aspect of cancer research or data collection will find this talk fascinating. You can view Mina's TED talk at this link.
