Researchers Find Spaceflight May Be Associated With DNA Mutations and Increased Risk of Developing Heart Disease and Cancer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

Mount Sinai study could lead to ongoing health monitoring of astronauts to assess possible health risks and prevent disease progression.
