'The war on cancer may NEVER be won': Cure 'could be impossible' because the disease is so highly evolved

Evolutionary biologists in Germany and Croatia found the disease is more evolved than previously thought
They reached the sobering conclusion: the disease is here to stay
Found the first evidence of tumours in hydra - simple freshwater animals
Suggests cancer is as old as multi-cellular life on earth but researchers said it does not mean medical technology can't fight the disease

Professor Thomas Bosch, said:'Knowing your enemy from its origins is the best way to fight it and win many battles'
