This is an excellent teaching and learning resource that many prior students have used successfully in the classroom as teachers.

This is a very informative and interesting video. It is surprising that the epiphenomena can make such a drastic effect.

Technical Remarks:

I really like the fact that this video implies that issue of Nature vs nurture. It is also very important to emphasize the old saying " You are what you eat"
Used in course? Yes

Thanks for contributing, not many people have up to now. Anyway, good stuff concerning cancer. If we can beat this we can clear one more disease that threatens human health.
