Tourism isn’t the only industry eager to benefit from the relaxing of the decades-long trade embargo against Cuba. Medical researchers on both of sides of the Straits of Florida now have the chance to collaborate with previously off-limits colleagues. Of particular interest to the U.S. is a Cuban lung cancer drug that…
Rat poison. Lighter fluid. Battery acid. Pesticides. And now...radiation. What do they all have in common? They're all rolled into one cancer causing cigarette. What's worse, tobacco companies have known that radiation was inside cigarettes but hid evidence of it for 4 decades.
Cuba, famed maker of delicious (and cancery) cigars, may just have an anti-lung cancer vaccine that's worth getting excited about. CimaVax-EGF isn't preventative, but it may make this horrible deadly disease just a plain old horrible disease.
For years, scientists have recognized that many of the world's most dangerous diseases have an underlying genetic component. Even your susceptibility to conditions like heart disease and lung cancer, diseases closely tied to lifestyle factors like smoking and lack of exercise, are believed to be heavily influenced by…
A dog can accurately detect the early presence of lung cancer by sniffing patients' breath, doctors in Germany say. While researchers have known for some time that dogs can sniff out the telltale signs of other forms of cancer, this is the first study that proves dogs can reliably smell this particular kind.
Lung cancer is really hard to detect early. So some scientists in Germany put their best sniffer dogs on the task. And you won't believe this but it totally worked.
Lung cancer diagnosis can be an invasive process, involving CT scans and tissue biopsies. But a new nanotechnological process for cancer detection could make diagnosis lung cancer as simple as breathing into a tube.
Breathalyzers have been around for years, letting cops determine just how drunk you were when you plowed into their parked car. But now, a new breathalyzer has been developed that can detect lung cancer.
HIV has been one of the worst killers of the past few decades worldwide — but now it may yield a cure for cancer. Scientists in Korea have been using the virus to cure lung cancer (in mice, at least.)
Marketed as a "healthy smoking machine," this 3-in-1 gadget lights up your cigarettes then automatically "purifies" all the nasty smoke around you, all the while spraying the air with your favorite perfume.
