Cancer research is without a doubt very important for the future of our health. As we tend to live longer along the decades, it is also important to stay healthy.
However cancer is still not curable and it is causing pain to patients. Yet this may change enormously in the nearby future.
In this episode we invited Dr Oluf Dimitri Roe, an oncologist from Norway, who is explaining how new cancer research is changing.
What is changing in cancer research
Dr Roe is also involved in cancer research and he is working on new method which will help detect cancer much earlier. In this way cancer will become curable and patients will not need to go over painful treatments.
In addition he talks about his other research work: asbestos. It is a mineral that can cause different forms of lung cancer. Therefore he is explaining that, even though many countries are not using or mining it, the danger is far from over.
