Science is a relatively recent activity and even great scientists can't be trusted with everything they say. The great thing about science is the method, not any single person.

Another interesting piece of research whose results are being overhyped?

Brazilian wasp venom kills cancer cells by opening them up - The social wasp Polybia paulista protects itself against predators by producing venom known to contain a powerful cancer-fighting ingredient. A Biophysical Journal study published September 1 reveals exactly how the venom's toxin—called MP1 (Polybia-MP1)—selectively kills cancer cells without harming normal cells. MP1 interacts with lipids that are abnormally distributed on the surface of cancer cells, creating gaping holes that a...___Another interesting piece of research whose results are being overhyped?

Catherine Wikholm is a psychologist studying how meditation might not be all peace and happiness. As with any treatment, mindfulness might actually be damaging.

Can game theory explain cancer?

As many of you know I consider evolutionary game theory an excellent tool in which to investigate cancer progression as it allows us to consider how cell interactions drive selection in an evolving tumor. Given the current emphasis in tumor heterogeneity, understanding how these interactions impact cancer progression is key.

The majority of game theoretical models of cancer are qualitative in nature but Marco Archetti at +University of East Anglia and colleagues have use it to explain experimental results in pancreatic cancer. Public good games describe a wide range of games that appear to be very applicable to cancer. This promises to be only the first study in many to come.
