Thanks to bio technologists and doctors from the 21st century, who work towards finding cures for diseases, we can live a healthy and long life.

The National Cancer Institute, who studies cancer and possible treatments for it, uses chemotherapy to treat cancer. While Chemotherapy saves many lives, it is still not ideal. Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, but it also kills or slows the growth of healthy cells that grow and divide quickly. As a result, side effects such as mouth sores, nausea, and hair loss may occur.
