Worn-out cells prod healthy ones toward cancer

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Cells that have lost the ability to divide are like those bad kids your mother warned you to avoid. They corrupt young cells, disrupting the growth and specialization of fresh tissue, according to new research. Rising numbers of these stagnant cells might explain why our bodies don't work as well in our golden years.
