The article discusses research on the evolution of an anti-cancer mechanism in certain small-bodied rodents with long lifespans. The article mentions that human cancer usually evolves from stem cells. The article mentions stem-cell division, cancer research, mice, tumor growth and metastases, and the relationship between lifespan and body size.
