Cancer cells are cells gone wrong, in other words.

They no longer respond to many of the signals that control cellular growth and death as described in the Krebs Cycle. Cancer cells originate within tissues and, as they grow and divide, they change even further from normalcy.

What Is Carcinogenesis And Cell Transformation In Cancer

Carcinogenesis And Cell Transformation In Cancer

We all have non-normal cells, this is well known in the scientific world, but not quite understood by the general public.

The Cell Cycle has been intensively studied to help in determining the cause of cancer. This has actually been going on for centuries, from Otto Warburg in the 1920s to a recent publication in 2014 with the new definition of Carcinogenesis, almost 100 years later. So now what?
