How antioxidants can hasten the spread of lung cancer

A few years ago, scientists in Sweden sparked a heated debate when they published research suggesting that taking antioxidant supplements, such as vitamin E, could make cancer more invasive. Their revelations challenged the belief that antioxidants can help fight cancer. New research shows how antioxidants fuel the spread of lung cancer. Now, two independent Cell […]

Are dogs better at detecting cancer ‘than advanced technology?’

Because dogs have an extremely sensitive sense of smell, researchers are increasingly interested in finding out whether they can detect disease. One new study working with beagles has found that they can successfully “sniff out” lung cancer with extremely high accuracy. Beagles are not just friendly and extremely cuddly; they can accurately detect cancer. Recent […]

Artificial intelligence better than humans at spotting lung cancer

Researchers have used a deep-learning algorithm to detect lung cancer accurately from computed tomography scans. The results of the study indicate that artificial intelligence can outperform human evaluation of these scans. New research suggests that a computer algorithm may be better than radiologists at detecting lung cancer. Lung cancer causes almost 160,000 deaths in the […]
