After the Twin Towers fell on Sept. 11, 2001, the thousands of people involved in rescue-and-cleanup efforts were exposed to carcinogens and other toxins as they breathed in contaminated air and dug through industrial rubble. Studies completed since then have shown elevated rates of conditions including multiple myeloma, prostate cancer and thyroid cancer among 9/11 responders and those who worked near the site. A new study published Jan. 14 in the journal JNCI Cancer Spectrum adds another to that list: leukemia. “After about 12 years of follow-up, there was an increase in the rate of all cancers combined, and separa...

Researchers Find Potential New Target for Mesothelioma Treatment
An international research team has identified a novel molecular target with potential to significantly improve future treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma. The recent findings could lead to a drug that targets key genetic inhibitors often preventing a patient’s own immune system from suppressing mesothelioma tumor growth.

In the Elusive Grip of an Abusive Partner: A Migrant ’s Story
Credit: UN WomenBy Fairuz AhmedNEW YORK, Jan 14 2020 (IPS) To live in a home with family, to have a safe environment, food and basic human necessities, are some of the essentials that most people expect to have without giving it all much thought. When a child is born, parents or caregivers are likely to provide these things. These expectations get renewed whenever someone gets married and moves to a new home, a different neighborhood, or a city. We can hardly find someone who will say that they were not expecting happiness and safety when stepping into a new relationship, or starting a new chapter of life. But these expect...
