What I wanted to share with you is a talk given by William Li at the TED Convention last year. He is talking about a revolutionary new way to treat cancer, and possibly avoid it all together.
“Imagine that one medical advancement held the promise to conquer cancer, perhaps within your lifetime … the potential to also end more than 70 of life’s most threatening conditions, affecting one billion people worldwide. This is the promise of angiogenesis, the first medical revolution of the 21st century.”
