The video explains how cancer cells develop and how the body's immune system works to kill them, with a focus on the importance of tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, and the cell's suicide switch.
The video explains how cancer cells develop and how the body's immune system fights against them.
Cancer is when cells in the body become corrupted and multiply uncontrollably, taking resources and space from healthy cells.
The body's immune system has mechanisms to detect and kill these cancer cells, but sometimes they can become too numerous and aggressive.
The development of cancer is caused by mutations in genes that control cell growth and repair, and these mutations can occur naturally over time or be caused by external factors like smoking or exposure to certain viruses.
Despite the harm they cause, cancer cells are not evil and are simply following their corrupted programming.
The immune system kills cancer cells without us noticing.
Cancer is when corrupted cells multiply uncontrollably.
Cells have a nucleus filled with DNA, which consists of genes.
The first key mutation is in tumor suppressor genes, which keep normal cells from multiplying recklessly.
Most cancer cases have no cause other than bad luck.
