Couldn’t get access to the full report, but raccoons carrying brain-cancer virus should be a big story, even if it doesn’t affect humans yet.
This is very intriguing. While modern journalism leaves a lot to be desired in headlining articles (headline does not match article contents at all) or drawing incorrect conclusions, are they hypothesizing that the virus causes the tumor?
Could have significant applications for our medicine.
Agreed. What are the chances this is a one-of-a-kind, entirely fluke, virus? It’s further study could be helpful—but itself problematic.
