    BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- Sarah Morris says 12-hour days are not uncommon at her bio-chemistry lab in Morgan Hall at UC Berkeley. But PG&E's power outage may have destroyed two years of her ground-breaking cancer research, valued at $500,000. "I kind of had a moment of thinking, 'is my dissertation thesis going to include the lines: I did this, and then it got wiped out because of a power outage. Please let me graduate!'" says Morris. Morris is a PhD student researching new therapies to fight drug-resistant forms of cancer. She says PG&E assured UC Berkeley that the power would...

    Eddie Van Halen has secretly been flying to Germany to receive treatments for throat cancer, TMZ learned Sunday (October 13). According to the celebrity gossip outlet, the Van Halen legend has been quietly jetting overseas over the past five years to undergo radiation treatment for the disease. As fans know, Van Halen was first diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in 2000. Following an operation to have nearly a third of his tongue removed, he was declared cancer-free in 2002. Insiders with direct knowledge told TMZ, "some of the cancer cells migrated down to his throat," which required doctors to...

    Despite his commitment to hosting Jeopardy! while undergoing cancer treatment, Alex Trebek has revealed that his skills behind the podium “have started to diminish.” In a new interview with the Canadian newsmagazine W5, Trebek spoke candidly about his future at Jeopardy!, acknowledging that the side effects of chemotherapy may cause him to leave the show earlier than anticipated. “I talk to the producers about this all the time now. I say, ‘Look, I’m slurring my words. My tongue doesn’t work as well as it used to,'” Trebek began. “The chemo has caused sores inside my mouth. It makes it difficult...

    Alongside a familiar looking greyscale scan there is a new, far sharper colour image produced by the new technique. The scanning technology itself is not new. The innovation has come in physics, statistics - and bubbles. Clinicians have long used microbubbles to increase the contrast of ultrasound images. These are typically tiny capsules of hydrocarbon gas in a lipid shell, each bubble a fraction of a millimetre across. Clouds of them are injected into a patient's bloodstream to diagnose liver and other diseases. The team first used physics to observe how individual microbubbles behaved. "They're very small, about the size...

    At age 35, with six months of chemotherapy and three weeks of radiation behind her for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Oregon resident Karen Baas didn’t feel relief because her treatments had ended. She felt poisoned. “Of course I was grateful to have had treatment and get past it,” she told Runner’s World. “But before I got cancer, I was a vet tech, and one of the chemicals we use for euthanasia is red. It turned out one of my infusion chemo drugs is also red. I can’t tell you how disturbing it is to make that mental connection.” Three days after her...

    The human body is often likened to a high-performance machine. But it is so much more than that. It works 24 hours a day for decades without (for the most part) needing regular servicing or the installation of spare parts. It runs on water and a few organic compounds, is soft and rather lovely, reproduces itself with enthusiasm, makes jokes, feels affection and appreciates a red sunset. How many machines do you know that can do any of that? There is no question about it. You are truly a wonder. And how do we celebrate the glory of our existence?...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is walking the walk and talking the talk ... showing everyone she's in the game of life. RBG got a little help from security but also walked without assistance Thursday in NYC as she entered the 92nd Street Y cultural center. She spoke to the crowd -- something she's been doing with some frequency after her 4th bout with cancer. The night before, Ginsburg spoke at the Yale Club and told the crowd, "This latest has been my fourth cancer battle and I found each time that when I'm active I'm much better than...

    Tuesday on “Good Morning America,” the “Jeopardy!” host said he “was doing so well” and his medical reports had approached normal levels after his first round of chemo for stage 4 pancreatic cancer. But he suddenly began losing weight. “I lost about 12 pounds in a week,” Trebek said. “And my numbers went sky high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed. So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again, and that’s what I’m doing.” “Early on, I was down on myself. I didn’t realize how fallible each of us is in his...

    Recent numbers released by the American Academy of Dermatology revealed a dramatic spike in the incidence of melanoma cases among young women. Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer, and for women aged 18-39, its rates have increased by 800% from 1970 to 2009.

    We already know that the Left regards the United States Constitution as a noxious constraint on their dream of using the might of the state to compel obedience to their dogmas, however they may evolve.  The First and Second Amendments bother them a lot.  But when the Supreme Court is dominated by liberals who make up rights they like from the previously unknown penumbra of the "living" Constitution, that pesky document matters less. But the news that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been treated for a recurrence of pancreatic cancer has the Left in a tizzy.  Should President Trump...

    When libertarian billionaire David Koch passed away last week, the left couldn't -- and wouldn't -- hide its glee. Finally, an important funder of right-wing causes had died! Bill Maher even said that he was "glad" that Koch had passed away, adding he hoped "the end was painful." That's the kind of hate the left had and continues to have for Mr. Koch, a man who became extremely rich and who then proceeded to use that wealth to support causes he believed in. Although he was most famous for donating to political causes, Mr. Koch was extremely generous to other...
