Cancer = Mutation: Stopping Mutation Would Cure Cancer?

... faster than normal cells in the body. Many cells do not actively divide in adult humans at all, these include e.g. neurons and muscle cells. Both irradiation and chemotherapy disrupt the cell cycle and thus mainly affect fast growing cells who are constantly dividing. Irradiation does this mostly ...
