061 - Killing Cancer With Anthrax; Killing Malaria With Fungus; and Killing White Fat With Brown Fat

In this week's episode of the Beta Sandwich Science Podcast we talk all about how to kill bad cells while keeping the good ones healthy.  We discuss: How scientists at MIT are using a modified form on anthrax to kill cancer cells by targeting intracellular proteins; we also talk about how fungus might be used to kill the Malaria parasite; finally, we talk about how brown fat in adults may be used as a weight loss tool in the future.
