Lung Cancer May Lie Dormant for 2 Decades

This dormancy can end when new, additional genetic mistakes occur and trigger rapid cancer growth, the researchers said. During this sudden growth, different genetic errors appear in separate parts of the tumor. Each of these areas evolves differently, a

Damaging legacy: maternal cigarette smoking has long-term consequences for male offspring fertility

This study represents the first comprehensive animal model of maternal smoking on male offspring reproductive function, suggesting that exposure during the gestational/weaning period causes long-term defects in male offspring fertility. This is due to a c
