About cancer, everyone knows that this disease is about mutant cells and its spread through all body. However, there is an old research believes that there is another source can lead to cancer. It was called the epigenetic alteration. The study showed that "epigenetic changes – which don’t change the DNA sequence but how it is ‘read'." This issue does not change or mutate any gene in the DNA sequence, but it acts like a switch off to inactivate any particular gene; the gene is turned off can affect to the function of other companies. Researchers also showed that epigenetic change involved with DNA methylation which effect to p16 gene in preventing cancer. This process can be reversed to fight cancer.
This article is publiced since 2014, but it is interested to me to know that not only mutant cells can cause cancer but the turn off of a gene alone can do the same. This open to a new hope for many patients diagnosed of cancer that there is another way to cure and prevent cancer.
