We've found some treatments that have great results for some cancers. We have ideas about other treatments, some that may work broadly against many cancers.

Anyone who is really honest had doubts about whether The American Underground would work when launched in 2010 in the dark, foreboding, chilly basement of a former tobacco factory in Durham. Sunlamps should have been a health requirement. Today, there's a lot of light shining on the AU - the light of success. The doubters were wrong - on multiple fronts.

Every year an estimated 3 to 5 million sharks are slaughtered for a precious omega-2 oil in their livers called squalene, a clear liquid, lighter than water, that helps them float.
