Teen Cancer Patient, Who Lost Teeth From Radiation, Raises Money From Donations After Insurance Company REFUSED To Pay For Necessary Dentures

teen cancer patient who lost teeth from radiation raises thousands of dollars from donations after insurance company refused to pay for necessary dentures

This 16-year-old has been beating the odds since he was four-years-old so it's no surprise to anyone that he's defeated the latest challenge in his life.

At the age of four-years-old, Alex Hunter and his family were told by doctors that Alex had a rare stage four cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. After beating that, the kid from Delano, California was diagnosed with Hurthle Cell Carcinoma at the age of 13, but he beat that, too!

Basically the little guy fought for his life and has managed to become one inspirational 16-year-old who loves to sing… and who is also currently cancer free.

Oh yeah, and insurance companies can eff off.

Fish Caught Off Oregon Coast Are Radioactive! Your Tuna May Not Be Safe To Eat!

Filed under: FoodHealthScience!FishGIFs

Researchers detect radiation in tuna caught off Oregon coast... even though the Fukushima disaster was back in 2011!!

This is pretty scary. Radiation from the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan has spread throughout our oceans.

Even though the nuclear power plant disaster was years ago, there are still irradiated fish swimming around. Some of those fish are delicious tuna, and some of those tasty fishies are being caught off the coast of Oregon!

A study of the fish, led by Oregon State University, looked at 26 Pacific albacore tuna caught between

Camille Grammer Takes NO Chances When It Comes To Germs After Announcing She's Cancer-Free!

Filed under: Real HousewivesHealthCancer

camille grammer wears mask a week after announcing she is cancer free

Just last week, Camille Grammer made the exciting announcement that she had finished up her chemotherapy and radiation treatments and was 100% cancer-free!

However, it looks like she's not taking any chances and doing everything she can to keep from getting sick!

Camille was spotted out and about in Malibu just days after breaking her exciting news, and she was sporting a protective mask to keep her totally germ-free!

Even though the former RHOBH has wrapped up all of her treatments, chemotherapy and radiation absolutely DESTROY the immune system, so it makes sense that she would be extra cautious!

We're so glad to see Camille is doing better and making sure she stays healthy!!

Dental X Ray Tumor

Great. Juuuuuust great!

It sounds like this new study is saying that people who may have had a certain kind (or kinds) of dental x-rays could be at a larger risk for meningioma.

What's meningioma?

Scary! Huge Sunspot Could Mean Solar Storms For Earth!

Filed under: Tech TalkScience!Scary!

Sun Spot OMG

It DOES seem like every time someone flips out over how major a solar flare is, or anything else to do with the sun for that matter, it ends up not really being bad at all.

But when we hear how HUGE this sunspot is that's forming on the sun's surface… we tend to not take it so lightly!

The spot has a diameter of 60,000 miles and is many times that of the Earth's which is just under 8,000 miles across. It's even possible to view with home telescopes.

Don't do that, though, unless your 'scope is fitted with sun filters to prevent permanent eye damage. Duh!

A huge solar flare is being predicted because of the spot — one that will have a burst of radiation travelling at up to 5million mph right towards us.

Unfortunately something like that could cause magnetic storms, which could disrupt satellites and electricity grids.

There's also no specific timeline for this to occur. During the next two years, though, they're expecting the number of sunspots visible on the sun to reach a maximum!

Space is cray!
