Granted it’s preliminary and in the early stages of development, but it does seem to hold promise. The basic science behind it seems to hold up. Cells divide as you get older. Cancer is just rapidly dividing cells. So, “cancer” is just rapid aging in a set group of cells (to put it overly simply.)
This should work.
My question is… do you want to know you’ll get cancer in 13 years, even though treatments won’t be possible until it actually starts to develop? The discussion seems eerily close to the proverbial “would you want to know you’ll get X disease?” or “would you want to know when you’re gonna die?”
I guess knowledge is better.
