Gradual Epiphany

Discoveries of Interest

This week I’ve seen a number of articles about various discoveries in the biomedical world (which is of some interest to me of late). The first discovery is especially of interest as Crohn’s disease runs in my family.

The second discovery suggests that there might be a virus which causes certain types of cancer. My grandmother has long claimed that her mother had “caught” cancer when she was working in a cancer ward. The findings in this article don’t prove anything conclusive, but it’s interesting to see some potential linkage in seeming coincidence and reality.
