Fascial function, Cancer, and the Naked Mole Rat
Fascia and its relation to cancer is receiving increased attention.
A recent article preview published in Nature (in the form of a letter) describes animal studies, that suggest potential fascia-related lines of inquiry for humans.
This is based on the extreme longevity (up to 30 years!), and virtually total cancer resistance, of…the naked mole-rat – with aspects of fascial function seen as key elements in these unique features.
The abstract of the paper and the potential to purchase the article in full is available via this link to the Nature website.
