Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: New Study Redefines How Radiation Kills Cells, Could Help Target Cancer Treatment

Newswise imageScientists have discovered for the first time how to accurately predict cellular radiation resistance without actually irradiating cells, instead measuring their internal ‘manganese-complexes’ responsible for resistance. This new broad measure of radiation resistance opens exciting scientific possibilities such as: allowing for more personalized cancer treatments, development of radioprotectors needed for astronauts to get to Mars and back, all while minimizing the need for animals in radiation …
