First of all we discover mole rats are unlikely to get cancer now its been discovered they can survive without oxygen for 18 minuets. This is apparently achieved by altering their cells to be powered by fructose (like a plant) rather than glucose (like a mammal).

"This is just the latest remarkable discovery about the naked mole-rat - a cold-blooded mammal that lives decades longer than other rodents, rarely gets cancer, and doesn't feel many types of pain," said Thomas Park, professor of biological sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who let the research.
