Belgian EPP Study Shows Mesothelioma Surgery Extends Survival
Using proper patient selection, doctors in Leuven, Belgium, are extending mesothelioma survival times significantly with the controversial extrapleural pneumonectomy surgery. Despite a growing reluctance to perform the surgery within the United States and throughout much of Europe, mesothelioma specialists at University Hospitals KU Leuven have continued performing it with great success. Their 2018 single-center study of the extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP) for pleural mesothelioma produced a 33.2-month median survival and a 24.2 percent five-year survival. “With our dedicated team, a patient can do well with this su...

Study Finds Traces Of Weed Killer In Popular Beers And Wines
BOSTON (CBS) – A new study claims there are traces of weed killer in some beer and wine.

The Guardian view on teenage activists: protesters not puppets | Editorial
A Belgian minister has resigned after falsely claiming that demonstrators were directed by hidden forces. She should have focused on their messageWhen confronted by child protesters, politicians and other adults often reach for the age-based putdown, rather than engage with the substance of whatever it is they are protesting about. Often, the suggestion is that someone older has put them up to it. Flemish environment minister Joke Schauvliege took the patronising tactic much too far when she said that recent school strikes across Belgium were a “set-up”, and that security services knew who was really “beh...

A Bizarre ‘Ice Circle’ Is Turning Heads in Maine. Here’s the Science Behind It
Nature loves to make things round: planets, soap bubbles, oranges, eyeballs, the circular swirl of a spinning hurricane. A lot of forces are at play in favoring natural circles and spheres—the equalizing force of air pressure pushing out or gravity pulling in; the rotation of the Earth, creating vortices in air; the evolutionary imperative of efficient packaging. The power of the round is in the news again, with the appearance of a massive, rotating ice disk in the Presumpscot River in Westbrook, Maine. The disk was first noticed on January 14, spinning in a lazy, counterclockwise direction. On social media, the ice ...
