Sharks and Cancer !
« on: 27/08/2005 21:54:40 »
Is it true that Sharks do not get Cancer ?..in fact , I'm sure I heard this is true and that there are many studies looking into why Sharks avoid the big C....are there other creatures that do not get Cancer ?

What about plants ?

Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

Sharks (as well as rays and skates) DO get cancer, but it's rare.
