Overview

Understand how cancer is a genetic disease that can stem from both hereditary flaws and DNA mutations, as you look through science and history with researcher and author Sam Kean.
The Genetics of Cancer

01: The Genetics of Cancer

We don’t normally think of cancer as a genetic disease, but it is. After Professor Kean provides the foundation of DNA, he details examples of how genetic flaws can be inherited, such as the BRCA genes, or how DNA mutations may not necessarily be inborn but rather caused by exposure to a chemical or to environmental hazards.
