Mole Rats: The Anti-Cancer

I saw this on facebook, and I had to check it out some more.  This is a really interesting breakthrough- while it’s not exactly a cure for cancer, the idea of a chemical that prevents the cancer in the first place is amazing.  Who would have thought we’d find it in the fat of a mole rat?

I’d really like to hear some more details here, but it sounds as though it can prevent the spread of cancer entirely.  This is pretty amazing stuff, and I look forward to seeing how scientists find a way to use this chemical without just pumping mole rat fat (say that three times fast…) straight into patients.
