(Toronto Star) In a major breakthrough, Toronto scientists have discovered a new approach to cancer treatment that would target the “normal” cells embedded around tumours.

In a study released Thursday, researchers at Mount Sinai Hospital show that it’s the non-cancerous cells that grow in and around a tumour that actually coax it to spread to other parts of the body.
