Stem Cells Cause Cancer?!

As some of you may know, my mom died of lung cancer in August of last year. And no, she never smoked. Anyways, as any of you that have been touched by cancer know, after dealing with it on a daily basis, you tend to become more excited when hearing about new treatments and breakthroughs.

Here's a little something I found on Digg today - an article proposing that cancer may, in fact, be caused by stem cells. If true, it suggests a radical new approach to the way chemotherapy and radiation are used. Crazy cool stuff...

By the way, if you want to help fight cancer without lifting a finger or spending money, (perfect for college students, hehe) you might consider donating your idle CPU power. Every bit helps.
