AsapSCIENCE, a new YouTube channel that tells general science stories in the style of MinutePhysics, put together this animation highlighting the checkpoints in your cells that fight cancer and how they go wrong when the disease takes over. You’ll learn not only how the cells lose control, but why risks increase with age and perhaps why some parts of the world have higher rates than others. Give them a follow!
