    This is certainly a great thing. No doubt new cancer treatment methods will come from this. Just as important is developing an understanding the etiology of cancer. The Environmental Public Health Tracking Project was created to do this sort of thing - match public health outcomes with environmental stressors - but this has a long, long way to go. We have rushed headlong into new technologies without understanding their side-effects. Understanding the causes of cancer is as important as new treatments.

    I wonder if a fraction of the amount of money that has been spent on the Huntsman Cancer Research Center were spent teaching people to make use of the spice tumeric .. if even more good would be done.

    In India people get less cancer than here and tumeric is said to be the reason why.

    I'm glad we are making progress in fighting cancer. I remember when a diagnosis of Cancer used to be a death sentence. Now most of the time the diagnosis is the start of a huge battle... but it's one you can win. Not one we always win... but one that more often than before there is a chance to win, and a lot of that is due to the research being done at places like the Huntsman Cancer Institute. So support them every chance you get.

    With all the advancement and research going on at the U of U is it any wonder that the Presidents of the PAC 12 schools including Cal, the number one public university in the nation and Stanford, one of the greatest private universities in the world wanted to associate with the U of U by inviting the U into their conference. I am very proud of the State's flag ship university. There will no doubt be another Nobel Prize winner coming out of this research.
