      Hi Christopher Sullivan, a good friend of mine suffered from cancer... though he was treated before it was too late but had to suffer many side-effects from it... This made me wonder how cancer can affect a healthy person..as in y tumors get formed.. Nice work.. I hope your research can conclusively prove the reason y cancerous tissues are formed inside body..
