    The economic risk of climate change” http://www.propertycasualty360.com/2014/07/29/the-economic-risk-of-climate-change “…The potential exists for economic risks from natural hazards to increase to levels where events with devastating and wide economic impact on countries and companies are no longer rare. {and} The general sets of recommendations offered from studies in the last 10 years by the insurance, reinsurance and broker communities are fairly obvious; more research, more effort to limit impact on the climate, and better models. However, what is really needed is insight on how to translate the current science into action, and to collaborate to accelerate the understanding and cost effective reduction of the evolving risk.”

    “Could cat feces help cure cancer?” http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/279776.php “With an estimated 1.6 million new cases of cancer to be diagnosed this year, finding a cure for the disease remains a top priority for many researchers. Now, investigators have looked to a parasite commonly found in cat feces – Toxoplasma gondii – to create a cancer vaccine.”
    Researchers from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, studied T. gondii’s cancer-fighting abilities and found that when the parasite enters a human (something that can happen via contaminated drinking water, undercooked and contaminated meat, or even contact with a cat’s litter box), cells that combat cancer are created in response. To put it simply, cancer can halt a body’s immune system, but T. gondii can help kick-start it again.
