Tobacco Could Treat Cancer

Scientists use the plant to “grow” key components of a cancer vaccine,and when I first saw this I was in a state of shock myself until I realized what they were actually doing. They are using the plants as factories for an antibody chemical specific to the cells which cause follicular B-cell lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
More research is needed but this could prove to be a step in the right direction,by getting the treatment from plants the cost would be cheaper and there would be less risk to the patient.
