This February, Cancer Research are running a brand-new campaign. It’s called ‘Sugar Free February’, and it’s a great campaign to get involved with. As some of you might know, sugar can affect the whole body, as it can contribute to the development of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, some cancers and – most significant to our profession – tooth decay.
I started my undergraduate degree in Immunology and Toxicology in 2002, not really knowing which direction my career was going to take, but knowing that it was going to be in science. I have my high school Chemistry teacher to thank for that; his love for science was infectious, and he made it seem fun.
