Courtesy of Blacksmith Institute March 19, 2014 Climate U.S. scientists say the evidence linking rising levels of greenhouse gases and global warming is as strong as the link between smoking and lung cancer Douglas Fischer and The Daily Climate April 15, 2020 Medical & Biotech In mice, a test for lung cancer involves nanoprobes that recognize tumors and send reporter molecules into the urine for simple analysis. W. Wayt Gibbs October 26, 2011 Early detection of cancer is often a key factor in successful treatment. When it comes to lung cancer, however, all screening methods are not created equal. Larry Greenemeier April 14, 2004 Health Sarah Graham September 13, 2012 Health The studies could help revamp treatments for the world's most deadly cancer, making them more specific to the mutation patterns Monya Baker and Nature magazine May 24, 2010 Lung cancer affects both smokers and nonsmokers, killing more than half of the people who get it within five years. It has been notoriously hard to treat, frequently resulting in widespread resistance and nasty side effects from high doses of drugs... Katherine Harmon March 29, 2012 Research projects evolve in a fortuitous manner, often guided by a convergence of novel observations, intuition, helpful colleagues and unique personal circumstances. Jalees Rehman March 29, 2018 Biotech Cancerous cells may pick up the characteristics of nearby organs, evading treatment Meghana Keshavan and STAT September 10, 2014 Some energy efficiency improvements could cost lives by increasing indoor radon exposure and the resulting risk of developing lung cancer. According to an article in the British Medical Journal, energy efficiency improvements could reduce home energy use and greenhouse gas emissions (which could lead to many health benefits)...
