A study was performed on participants all born in the 90's. There were a total of 14,500 participants in the expirement done by The Univeristy of Bristol. The research found that if a girl's maternal grandmother had smoked during pregnancy, she was 67% more likely to display traits found in Autism like poor communication skills and repitive behavior. This disovery shows that if a female is exposed to cigarette smoke while still in the womb, it could affect the developg eggs.

Although statistics vary, colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major cause of cancer mortality in the United States and is the 2nd leading cause of death in men and the 3rd leading cause in women (American Cancer Society, 2017). At the forefront of colorectal cancer research is the study of the KRAS gene, which codes for proteins essential in regulating cell division. When KRAS contains or acquires mutations, it becomes deregulated, like an on/off switch that can’t be turned off. As a result, proteins essential for initiating growth factors, particularly epidermal growth factor (EGFR), are allow

“Human melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene variants alter melanoma cell growth and adhesion to extracellular matrix” examines the long-known connection between mutations in the gene MC1R and predisposition to skin cancer. This gene is responsible for the production of melanin, a protein which affects external pigmentation, in particular affecting the hair and skin color of humans.
