  • Why cancer cells waste so much energy

    MIT News Office ^ | January 15, 2021 | Anne Trafton |
    In the 1920s, German chemist Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells don’t metabolize sugar the same way that healthy cells usually do. Since then, scientists have tried to figure out why cancer cells use this alternative pathway, which is much less efficient. MIT biologists have now found a possible answer to this longstanding question. In a study appearing in Molecular Cell, they showed that this metabolic pathway, known as fermentation, helps cells to regenerate large quantities of a molecule called NAD+, which they need to synthesize DNA and other important molecules. Their findings also account for why other types of...

    Dustin Diamond, known best for his portrayal of a lovable nerd on “Saved by the Bell,” has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer after being hospitalized over the weekend, the actor's manager said Thursday. Diamond, 44, was taken to a Florida hospital days ago after feeling unwell, his spokesman previously confirmed to NBC News. The former child star is awaiting test results to learn the exact location and nature of the cancer. Diamond came to fame in the 1990s with his role of Samuel "Screech" Powers on “Saved by the Bell. He played the role of best friend and sidekick...

    Black Lives Matter protesters in Wisconsin hijacked and crashed a Christmas charity event for kids with cancer. Nothing is sacred to the woke left, including Christmas or helping kids with cancer. Residents of a Milwaukee suburb hold an annual event called Candy Cane Lane to benefit childhood cancer research. Students decorate trees in a section of West Allie, Wisconsin to look like red and white candy canes to designate the route. Houses are festively lit up with lights to celebrate the season.

    Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh provided listeners with a health update on Tuesday after being diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in February. "Every day remains a gift," Limbaugh said. "You know, I wake up every morning, and I thank God that I did." He told listeners that in the future he will likely need to take some days off for “rest or for whatever medical challenges present themselves.” “But the fact that I’m able to get back here and be with you is a genuine blessing, and I appreciate it and I appreciate your understanding throughout all of this,”...

    A 27-year-old father of two from the UK died of cancer — months after he had to beg for an MRI scan amid a slowdown during the coronavirus crisis. Sherwin Hall, of Leeds, West Yorkshire, died on Dec. 3, following an illness that began more than a year earlier. Hall first began experiencing groin pain in September 2019 that subsided and re-emerged in January — and was given antibiotics both times, he wrote on a GoFundMe page back in May. He thought he was feeling better, but then the pain returned “with a vengeance” in March, when he experienced pain...
  • Study: Stress hormones may play a role in cancer recurrence

    Stress hormones and immune cells called neutrophils may awaken dormant cancer cells and cause tumors to regrow -- even after treatment -- according to a study published Wednesday by Science Translational Medicine. The findings may explain why cancers can return long after seemingly being cured with chemotherapy or surgery, the researchers said. In addition, targeting stress hormones with U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved beta-blockers, typically used to treat irregular heartbeats, potentially could help prevent tumors from returning, they said. "Tumor recurrence may be facilitated by common stress," study co-author Dr. Dmitry Gabrilovich told UPI.

    A photograph of a damaged Allied ship after the Luftwaffe raid of Bari Harbour, Italy, December 2, 1943. Photo: Wikimedia Commons. Before the atomic bomb came along, chemical weapons were the ultimate red line – the boundary between supposedly civilised warfare and unrestrained barbarism. Even before their horrors were first unleashed on a large scale in World War I, nations had sought to ban the use of “poison weapons.” After approximately 90,000 were killed by gas warfare during World War I, the moral and legal revulsion intensified. Numerous solemn proclamations and protocols were created in which civilised nations pledged never...

    Cancer does not necessarily mean death for a pregnant mother or her unborn baby. Thanks to modern medical advances, many women who are diagnosed during their pregnancies are being treated and giving birth to healthy babies. Christian News Network recently reported about a mother in Italy who refused to abort her unborn daughter after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In March, Consiglia Varriale said she discovered a lump in her breast while she was pregnant with her second daughter, and her doctors immediately recommended an abortion. “They all told me that I had to give up the baby if...

    Keeping people from their suffering loved ones does not safeguard them. It merely subjects them to a different kind of suffering — one for which there might be no recovery.One year ago today, my father died following a 10-year battle with cancer. Our family’s final weeks with him likely mirrored those of many other families. With a new wave of COVID-19 lockdowns beginning, however, I feel compelled to share our story because that journey convinces me that we, as a nation, are subjecting the dying to physical and psychological torture in the name of fighting a pandemic.Caring for FamilyI’m not...

    A cancer charity started by Joe Biden gave out no money to research, and spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, federal filings show. The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to help find “solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention” and help find a cure, but gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired. The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in...

    Country singer Doug Supernaw, who had hits in the early ’90s with “I Don’t Call Him Daddy,” and “Reno,” died on Friday, Nov. 13. He was 60 years old. A representative from his management team said Supernaw passed away in Texas. The Houston-raised singer announced in February 2019 that he had lung and bladder cancer and he entered hospice care in October after the cancer spread. After working on oil rigs and as a concert promoter in Texas, Supernaw moved to Nashville in the late ’80s to work as a staff writer for a music publishing company, but moved back...

    March 28 – very early in the pandemic – an article that I felt at the time received far too little attention. “Drugs, Suicide, and Crime: Empirical Estimates of the Human Toll of the Shutdown” by economists Audrey and Thomas Duncan cited empirical literature on the human toll of economic devastation. This article forecasted more than 100,000 excess deaths due to drug overdoses, suicide, alcoholism, homicide, and untreated depression – all a result not of the virus but of policies of mandatory human separation, economic downturn, business and school closures, closed medical services, and general depression that comes with a...

    Kumari, an 18-year-old Indian crested porcupine and one of the Phoenix Zoo's animal ambassadors, recently underwent surgery to remove a cancerous mass that was found in her mammary glands. She is now recovering at the zoo's Animal Care Center. The zoo announced the news on Friday to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is recognized in October, and to remind people that animals can have breast cancer too, according to a news release. Though considered to be rare, there are a few reports of breast cancer in porcupines, the zoo said.

    What is the measure of a man’s courage? Is it measured by jumping on an enemy grenade to save his friends? Is it boldly braving enemy fire to pull one of his comrades from the brutal bloodbath of an enemy ambush? Both of those are great examples, but they miss a critical element…Fear. Fear can take many forms, both rational and irrational. In some cases fear can be fairly brief, such as a two minute free fall, accompanied by the opening shock of the parachute, at which point the fear is replaced by relief. The same applies in many combat...
