Ask a 2nd year phd student in cancer biology and genetics anything.

How transposons work? When they move, do they move in only individual DNA strands or is the same move copied in all your DNA strands at once?

???
>>
>>10195657
Transposons are parts of DNA code that move in the DNA strand, causing things like cancer. But I was taught that all DNA strands in your body are identical, so this part confuses me.

Is it more profitable treating or curing cancer. Cancer research gets the most money and is a complete joke for how much money is raised.
>>
>>10195635
Active transposons code their own proteins that move them around the genome. A single copy of a transposon will incorporate into a (mostly) random position on one chromosome.

As far as we understand cancer, there will never be a complete cure. Cancers are using fundamental biological mechanisms to do their thing and theres too many ways to break a genome for us to prevent it from happening. The best we will ever be able to do imo is aggressive therapy to attack cancers when/as they develop.

Hope you get some pretty serious cancer, breh.

ask a real scientist anything. 3rd year phd student. but im probably the best of my peers at this stage no question.

ask an expert scientist anything. 7th year phd student. I've been here longer than all the postdocs in my lab so I am clearly the greatest by seniority.

Does processed red meat increase the chances of getting cancer? If so how does it compare to other food ?
Is the cancer risk of fresh meat lower?
Will eating a mainly carnivore diet increase the chances of getting cancer?
Does no fap/sex increase the chances of getting testicular cancer?
>>

1.) yes-- nitrates
2.) yes-- yes, less nitrates
3.) yes-- yes nitrates
4.) honestly who the fuck cares testicular cancer is not something most guys have to worry about and most likely has more to do with diet.

1) Short and most concise answer, it depends on your rate of consumption as well as other dietary habits. A significant portion of dietary nitrates comes from vegetables.

Below are three excellent references you can access from your university by logging into WoS or Google Scholar.

Gladwin MT, Schechter AN, Kim-Shapiro DB, Patel RP, Hogg N, Shiva S, Cannon III RO 3rd, Kelm M, Wink DA, Espey MG, Oldfield EH, Pluta RM, Freeman BA, Lancaster Jr. JR, Feelisch M, Lundberg JO. 2005. The emerging biology of the nitrite anion. Nat. Chem. Biol. 1:308–314.

Sindelar JJ, Milkowski AL. 2011. Sodium nitrite in processed meat and poultry meats: A review of curing and examining the risk/benefit of its use. AMSA White Paper Series No. 3. Champaign (IL): American Meat Science Association. p. 1–14. Available at https://meatscience.org/publications-resources/white-papers/docs/default-source/publications-resources/white-papers/2011-11-amsa-nitrite-white-paper

Weitzberg E, Lundberg JO. 2013. Novel aspects of dietary nitrate and human health. Annu. Rev. Nutr. 33:129–159.

2) If by "fresh" meat you are suggesting you will be eating raw meat, then the cancer risk of any other processed meat product will be comparatively higher. Nevertheless, the risk is already very very low. Again, YOUR individual dietary habits and genetic predisposition play a much larger role. I know its easier to just blame it on foods and food manufacturers, but it's not that simple.

3) Hard to say, I would be wary of anyone saying "studies show a carnivore diet causes cancer," because such studies would 1) be very difficult to conduct as you would need to track your participants over a long period of time, 2) hope you are collecting reliable data from their self-reporting 3) be very expensive and resource intensive.

4) I have never heard of these two being studied, and you will likely not get any true or accurate answers by asking that question here

How competitive is it?
Is it still as fascinating a field to you as it was when you enrolled?
Are your colleagues decent people?
Could I make as much money going into a phd as I could becoming a medical oncologist?
