The Cancer Epigenetics Society is now on YouTube with short videos relevant to cancer and/or epigenetics.

The Society’s first video follows the timeline of DNA-based epigenetics with several findings relevant to cancer biology or treatment.

The second video highlights cancer rates in the top 50 most affected countries, showing that cancer is a global problem that requires concerted global efforts to defeat it. Several Society members volunteered to translate this video and accompanying text, which is now also posted in French, German, Hungarian, and Norwegian.

The third video is a cancer awareness video meant to remind everyone of the danger of prolonged sun exposure. Each year, more than 5.4 million people are newly diagnosed with skin cancers in the US, more than all cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, and colon combined. About 90% of all skins cancers are caused by ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, and are therefore preventable.
