The only cure—a bone marrow transplant—often isn't suitable for these very sick patients. Now, an international team of scientists report in Nature Cell Biology on a long-overlooked part of a leukemic cell's internal machinery called the spliceosome, where they found a hyperactive form of a protein called IRAK4 that sends cells on a cancer-causing frenzy.

Even moderate consumption of red and processed meat increases bowel cancer risk Processed and red meat hitheadlines this week as our research linked moderate consumption to an increased risk of developing bowel cancer. Our scientists in Oxford found that for every 10,000 people who ate 21g of red and processed meat a day, 40 were diagnosed with bowel cancer. Eating 76g of processed or red meat a day caused 8 extra bowel cancer cases. Follow this Twitter thread for more info.
