Today's Globe: post-concussion syndrome, pancreatic cancer stem cells, pandemic rules, breast implants
Plagued by post-concussion syndrome and battling an amphetamine addiction, former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson is a shell of his former self.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have discovered a small population of stem cells in pancreatic cancer that appear to drive tumor growth, opening the door for a potential new approach for treating this particularly deadly disease.
The CDC's pandemic guidelines mean states should be prepared to keep children out of school for three months, businesses should be ready to operate with skeleton workforces, children should be prepared to play mostly with their siblings, and parents should be ready to lose income as they skip work and cobble together child-care arrangements.
Despite FDA approval, breast implants are still not safe, Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Melmed and Our Bodies Ourselves executive director Judy Norsigian write in an op-ed piece.
