Almost everyone has a friend or family member who has been affected by cancer, and one in two of us will suffer with it at some point in our lifetime. But how much do we really know about what cancer is and how can we work towards a cure? How do we find good information about treatment and prevention among all the frauds and mistaken ideas that give false hope?

Alice Howarth, a researcher who has worked in the Institute of Translational Medicine at the University of Liverpool with both non-profit and for-profit organisations, is giving a talk on cancer for the Merseyside Skeptics Society. She will discuss what cancer is, how it works and how researchers are working towards curing it. She will share some of the major success stories relating to particular types of cancer and talk about how to tell the difference between bogus treatment claims and genuine scientific advancements in the field.

The talk will be held on the 14th December at 20:00–22:00 UTC at
The Vines, 81 Lime Street, in Liverpool.

The event has wheelchair access, via a portable ramp which can be installed on-demand. If possible, please let the organisers know you are coming (through so they can have the ramp ready.

Please note that while MSS events are normally held on the third Thursday of the month, this one is on the second Thursday of December.
