Naked mole-rats could possibly hold the key to treating or preventing life threatening tumours. The rodents, which never gets cancer and can live up to 30 years old, are leading the way in new cancer research. In recent lab studies scientists found that naked mole-rats cells are high in a natural sugar-like substance that blocks tumours from developing. Researchers believe this new discovery could help in the long-term with human cancer therapy. Researcher Dr. Andrei Seluanov said, "Our hope is that it can also induce an anti-cancer response."
