By high school, most students have been touched by cancer through their network of family and friends and yet most do not understand how the apparent randomness of this disease can be explained. Help your students unwrap the mystery of cancer predispositions, development and treatment by introducing them to the world of genes and cell signals. They’ll explore the properties of nucleic acids and the role of gene regulation mechanisms in normal and abnormal cell growth and study multiple examples of the role mutation plays in evolution. By exploring this family of diseases and understanding what is occurring on the cellular and molecular level, students can make informed choices about the food, products and behaviors that affect their risk.
