Early Detection for Pancreatic Cancer

In the 1970s, only three percent of patients with pancreatic cancer survived for five years. Today, it still has one of the highest fatality rates in the United States. Todd Bauer and Kimberly Kelley (University of Virginia) are working to develop human cell models and possibly begin clinical trials that would allow earlier detection of the cancer, which could help increase survival rates for patients. Also featured: Latinos share an increased incidence of diabetes. Some, like Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, have learned to live well with the disease. Exercise physiologist Sheri Colberg-Ochs (Old Dominion University) focuses on this unique segment of the population in her latest book on diabetes, “Diabetes? No Problema! A Latino’s Guide to Living Well with Diabetes.”

    I was surprised listening this morning your show about this investigation in pancreatic cancer
    I’m surprised because cancer in any level was already cured 60 years ago with Dr. Gerson’diet
    Gerson Institute has a lot of information about it without quimo or any invasive therapy.Hundreds of lives have been saved since then.

    I always enjoy Seth’s inhigsts as a breath of fresh air especially with CBS embracing people like Billy Packer, whose over-stated commentary got old quickly then his replacement Clark Kellogg’s his faux-Clyde routine One of the things Seth conveniently forgets is that some of the cupcake games are regionally politically correct I think that UCONN being on the bubble might be more of a reality with Coach Calhoun’s medical leave of absence Coach Blainey was a genius hire but he’s not Coach Calhoun I am hoping the American Sports Vatican (aka Notre Dame) falls off that bubble they need to establish a reputation of athletic excellence, not just a memory of the Digger Days !!!Glad to see someone speaking nationally about Da Hall and I agree with his evalaution !!!Lastly, I certainly hope Duke’s Singler stays for his senior year it will help the team and recognize that he’s not an NBA calibre player now and might never be
