In this month’s podcast we look at the latest news stories from the world of cancer research, including how DNA repair genes could lead to better treatment for melanoma, and why the ‘cancer breath test’ is still a long way off.

Also, we’ve got an in-depth report on our vital campaigning work to protect children from the dangers of tobacco.  Teen smoking rates have dropped since it became illegal to sell cigarettes to under-18s. But will the new coalition government protect the recent health act, which will end tobacco displays in shops and ban cigarette vending machines?
