antisocial cells

From ScienceDaily: Antisocial, Invasive Cells Are Basis of Cancer, Finding Suggests

This is pretty interesting. I really like the idea of gene therapy and things like this, studying the body to manipulate it.

However, I did also just rewatch "I Am Legend," which I enjoy because I'm a fan of zombies, especially zombies created by science. Manipulation of the measles virus to cure cancer is what causes zombie-virus (and of course it goes airborne, like all proper movie viri). Guess manipulating the genetic code really does worry me a little bit, even though it seems pretty interesting. Who the hell knows what we're going to do. Guess I just have to hope those scientists aren't evil.
