    Controlling cancer depends on controlling tissue microenvironments, according to researcher James DeGregori. “There's going to be pressure on cells in the lungs of a smoker to adapt to that new environment,” he explains, “and by adapting to it, it can basically favor new phenotypes that could lead to a malignancy that could lead to the initiation of a cancer.”

    He and Richard discuss the initiation of cancer and cancer evolutio...
