Amy Schnitzler was tired.

Surgery and chemotherapy treatments for her breast cancer had knocked the energy right out of her and all she wanted to do was snuggle under the bedcovers all day.

But she got up, anyway.

“Even on my worst days, in terms of fatigue, if I just got up and did a little something, whether it be some light stretching, gentle yoga, just some yoga, that definitely made me feel better and it definitely made me able to greet the day,’ said Schnitzler, who is studying opera.

“It was just a matter of, ‘OK, I know you feel really tired right now, Amy. But if you just get up and do a little something, you’re going to feel better after’. And that has definitely been the case for me.”

With Big Pharma Support, Human Gene Editing Could Be Closer Than We Thought

Here’s how you know CRISPR, the revolutionary gene-editing technology getting all kinds of hype around the web, is poised to go mainstream: Big Pharma’s getting in the game.

It was recently announced that a $300 million joint venture between Bayer AG (best known for its aspirin) and bio startup CRISPR Therapeutics will aim to develop drugs for blindness, blood disorders and congenital heart disease. It’s a logical next step, especially since scientists at a Los Angeles-based medical institute recently proved they could use CRISPR/Cas9 to treat a type of inheritable blindness in mice.

For a little background, CRISPR/Cas9 gives scientists the ability to directly modify or correct changes in our genome, especially ones that come from disease, by “cutting” the genes with a protein called Cas9, which you might call the scissors. When CRISPR is successful, it means that we can change a busted protein — like one from cancer or HIV — and fully correct the problem.

Cancer treatment like chemotherapy can wreak havoc on a patient’s body — even if it’s an adorable dog. But one man’s plan to print cancer-killing viruses could change cancer treatment forever.

World Health Organization: Processed Meats Cause Cancer

Very sad news for bacon lovers.

The World Health Organization announced Monday that cured and processed meats like bacon, sausage, hot dogs and ham cause cancer, adding the foods to a top-tier list of carcinogenic substances that includes alcohol, cigarettes, asbestos, and arsenic.

Processed meats can be bundled with these threatening carcinogens because of their link with bowel cancer, according to a report from WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, though their inclusion doesn’t mean that bacon causes cancer at the same rate as, say, smoking. 

“For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal (bowel) cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed,” IARC epidemiologist Dr. Kurt Straif said in a statement.

What Non-Smokers Need To Know About Lung Cancer

In 2012, Sandy Jauregui-Baza was hiking along the Tamul waterfall in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, when she started coughing and having trouble breathing. “I remember thinking I must be coming down with something,” she recalls.

Jauregui-Baza was an avid exerciser; she ran or hiked daily, logging more than 100 miles each month. She ate clean, avoiding almost all processed foods. She figured she was too healthy for anything to be seriously wrong. But after developing flu-like symptoms, she went to an urgent care clinic in Los Angeles. The doctor thought it might be tuberculosis, based on the results of her cloudy chest X-ray and her recent honeymoon in Nepal, where the infectious disease is common. But a few days later, when the definitive test for TB came back negative, doctors did a lung biopsy to look for other causes.

The final diagnosis: Jauregui-Baza had stage IV lung cancer, the most advanced form of the disease; it had spread into the bones of her spinal column. “I thought the doctors had to be kidding,” says Jauregui-Baza, now 32. “I’ve never even smoked, and I had just hiked to the base camp of Mount Everest. How could I have lung cancer?” The prognosis was grim: More than 95 percent of stage IV lung cancer patients succumb to the disease within five years of diagnosis. Jauregui-Baza was given just six months to live.

Blood Test Might Detect Deadly Pancreatic Cancer in Early Stages

With just a drop of blood doctors may one day be able to detect pancreatic cancer in its early stages, before it has become deadly, a new study suggests.

An international team of researchers was able to identify 100 percent of patients with late-stage pancreatic cancer, as well as those with earlier stage disease, by looking for a protein in the blood that is made in abundance by tumor cells.

That protein turns up in tiny virus-sized particles, called exosomes, which are excreted by all of the body’s cells, according to the study published in Nature. But, by good fortune, the protein turns up in exosomes only when there is cancer, so its presence could be an early, and testable, marker for the disease.

Joseph “Beau” Biden III, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, has died of brain cancer, the White House announced Saturday evening. He was 46.

“More than his professional accomplishments, Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother,” Joe Biden said in a statement, calling him “quite simply, the finest man any of us have ever known.”

Beau Biden served as Delaware’s attorney general for eight years from 2007 to 2015. In 2010, he suffered a mild stroke, but recovered and went back to work.
