A Japanese University (May Have) Just Cured Cancer

Good news, everyone! Cancer is a thing of the past, maybe!


Tottori University, located in the reviled prefecture of Tottori, announced with great aplomb on January 25 that they have made a major breakthrough in the fight against cancer, discovering a type of molecule that could turn cancerous cells benign in a short period of time.

Of course this discovery comes out of Tottori, because there is apparently nothing at all to do in the second smallest Japanese prefecture except play pachinko and experiment with cancer cures.

Here’s a screenshot of some technical mumbo jumbo to prove this is legit. It should make sense to you if you got called four eyes a lot in middle school or if you’re from Tottori:

You can get more information about this breakthrough from people who are far more educated and objective than us here, at this Scientific Reports, er… report.
