May is upon us! And with it, comes our first round of fundraising events: Boston Bakes.

The Importance of Giving

I didn’t blog last week because I was dealing with a death in my family. My dear great uncle passed away due to complications from Alzheimer’s. It was a terrible reminder of how an incurable illness can overcome an otherwise healthy person. Though the physical symptoms of Cancer and Alzheimer’s differ, the effect on family and quality of life are similar in many ways. Hospital stays, many and varied medications, side effects, and the sad decline in health are all the same.
And of course, these are just two of many incurable diseases people are facing daily. Research and advancement in …

 

Garlic Gone Wild

Is there any such thing as too much garlic? Some would say yes, and I used to be the first to agree. But over the past couple of years I stopped caring about my fresh breath and started indulging in the delicious flavor whenever possible.

When I think of my favorite fully garlic-loaded food my mother’s caesar salad is the first thing that comes to mind. Her homemade dressing isn’t creamy like the typical caesar dressing you’re probably used to. Instead, it’s olive oil based with lots of lemon juice and A LOT of fresh garlic. She even tosses …

 

Yummy Yogurt

Soy yogurt from fatfreevegan.com
The latest trend in yogurt has been showing up everywhere over the past few years, from grocery stores to coffee shops, convenient stores and more. At first I was skeptical. The plain, sugar-free flavor of greek style yogurt was boring and bland compared to the fruity flavors of Yoplait‘s apple turnover and boston-cream-pie-delights that I was used to.
But soon enough, greek yogurt worked it’s way into my heart and is now one of my most desired snacks. Chobani is definitely my brand of choice.
Vanilla Chobani
The “fruit on the bottom” makes it all worthwhile with flavors like peach …

Susan F. Smith Centers for Women’s Cancers – Basic Science

J. Dirk Iglehart, MD
Vulnerability, or the belief that all cancer cells have at least one weakness, is a concept embraced by many in the cancer research community. This theory holds that you can beat cancer by finding the molecular Achilles’ heel of particular cancer cells and designing drugs that interfere with this particularly vulnerable spot. Increasingly, Dana-Farber scientists are focusing on the complex interactions of genes and proteins that enable specific types of tumor cells to proliferate and sometimes spread to other areas of the body.
While researchers have identified several molecular weak spots in breast cancer that can be targeted …
