Some activities in life are highly regulated. For instance, think about an amusement park. Some rides in the park are restricted to people of a certain number of people, so visitors must wait for their turn. Each part of teh park is regulated. Imagine the chaos that would erupt if everyone broke the rules. In our bodies, the cell cycle is highly regulated. Cell grow, divide and die in regulated steps. Sometimes damaged cells break the rules and reproduce unchecked, causing cancer. In this activity, you'll learn about cancer and how it relates to the cell cycle. Did you know that more than one million people in the United States are diagnosed with some form of skin cancer every year? Imagine that you have a friend who is constantly getting sunburned, and you want to convince your friend to take precautions in the sun. What would you say?
