In a paper to be published in the September 2018 issue of Biophysical Reviews and Letters, researchers have discovered that there is a correlation and possible cause and effect between otherwise invisible dark matter particles and melanoma, a type of skin cancer. This opens the door to more research in the interdisciplinary fields of physics and medicine.
In a recent study, Dr. Konstantin Zioutas from the Physics Department at the University of Patras and Dr. Edward L Valachovic from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics of the University at Albany – State University of New York discovered that there is a correlation and possible cause and effect between otherwise invisible dark matter particles and melanoma, a type of skin cancer.
Recent physics observations and analysis of melanoma data in the USA showed an unexpected planetary correlation in 1-10% of the diagnoses of melanoma (significance >5σ). It is proposed that streaming invisible dark matter, whose flux can be temporally enhanced via solar gravitational focusing, may be interacting with the human body.
The research aims to
