Study questions need for employer healthcare requirement
NPR
When the Affordable Care Act was unveiled, business groups railed against the provision that requires companies with 50 or more employees to provide health insurance for their full-time workers. The Obama administration responded by pushing back the deadline for the coverage, so it hasn't yet taken effect. Now support for this so-called employer mandate is eroding in some surprising quarters.

Fox News

With a better understanding of how these genes work, the researchers say they now have a promising therapeutic target for treating the disease in the future. In fact, the researchers were even able to slow the progression of eye tumor growth in mice by using an FDA-approved drug associated with these two genetic pathways.

Doctors use immune therapy against cervical cancer
The Associated Press via ABC News
Two years ago, Arrica Wallace was riddled with tumors from widely spread cervical cancer that the strongest chemotherapy and radiation could not beat back. Today, the Kansas mother shows no signs of the disease, and it was her own immune system that made it go away. The experimental approach that helped her is one of the newest frontiers in the rapidly advancing field of cancer immunotherapy, which boosts the body's natural ways of attacking tumors.

Autism a product of the environment, not genetics, in some children of mothers over 35
Medical Daily
Scientists believe the reason fathers over 40 are more likely to have a child with an autism spectrum disorder is due to gene mutations in their sperm-making cells that gradually accumulate throughout the years. Yet scientists know little about why mothers over the age of 35 face a similar high risk. After exploring different possibilities, researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University discovered environmental influences, not genetics, may cause autism in some children of older mothers.
