We constantly live in a soup of bacteria and viruses.
Only a big nuke will get rid if these, temporarly.
Cancer is a genetic mutation which produces blood-greedy over-growth of normal cells in the wrong places at the wrong times.

Fight cancer with viruses:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/20/health/research/viruses-are-recruited-and-flipped-as-cancer-killers.html
"Unlike chemotherapy, which can diminish in effectiveness over time, oncolytic viruses multiply in the body and gain strength as the infection becomes established. In addition to attacking cancer cells directly, some also produce an immune response that targets tumors."

Bacteria processes compose and control most of our GI tract inside the thorasic peritoneum(food-->energy-->action).
They might influence through feedback mechanisms what the brain decides it wants to consume next.
They might influence future DNA reproduction based on intake.

INTERACTING GEARS SYNCHRONIZE PROPULSIVE LEG MOVEMENTS IN A JUMPING INSECT

Gears are found rarely in animals and have never been reported to intermesh and rotate functionally like mechanical gears. We now demonstrate functional gears in the ballistic jumping movements of the flightless planthopper insect Issus. The nymphs, but not adults, have a row of cuticular gear (cog) teeth around the More

Researchers create lightsaber-like ‘photonic molecules’ | Science Recorder

A consortium of researchers from the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms, led by Harvard physics professor Mikhail Lukin and his MIT counterpart Vladan Vuletic, forced photons to bind together and form molecules into a state of matter that, until recently, had been purely theoretical.

“Most of the properties of light we know about originate from the fact that photons are massless, and that they do not interact with each other,” Lukin said. ”What we have done is create a special type of medium in which photons interact with each other so strongly that they begin to act as though they have mass, and they bind together to form molecules. This type of photonic bound state has been discussed theoretically for quite a while, but until now it hadn’t been observed.”

When the researchers fired two photons into the cloud, they were observed exiting together, as a single molecule

"As the temperature and pressure are so high, water is not in a usual form (vapor, liquid, or solid), but in an ionic or plasma form at the bottom the atmosphere — namely the interior — of Gliese 1214 b," principle investigator Norio Narita of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan told SPACE.com by email.
