Breast cancer prevention drug created

Scientists have created a new drug that could prevent thousands of women from developing breast cancer

The drug is intended for women with a family history of breast cancer who are in a high risk area of developing the disease.

Researcher Dr Ruth Plummer said:

"The implications for women and their families are huge because if you have the gene, there is a 50 per cent risk you will pass it on to your children. You are carrying a time bomb"

Unfortunately the drug will not be available for another ten years.

Here is to hoping this gets them that one step closer to a full blown cure. It could not come soon enough.

Having the gene doesn't mean you'll pass it on or even haver a higher risk of breast cancer-

Also there are cures for cancers- just not big "magic bullet" money making ones.
