Summary
"There are few words in any language that strike as much fear as the word "cancer". One person in three develops malignant cancer in his or her lifetime, and one out of four dies from it. The aim of this course is to explain the science that underlies this disease. As you learn about how cancer works to subvert the body's normal functioning, you will see how cancer can be treated and even prevented."--page 1 of course guidebook
