FOXBOROUGH — Twenty Patriots will be giving running back James White a run for his “Sweet Feet’’ nickname Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Coach Bill Belichick and 19 players will be participating in the NFL’s third annual “My Cause, My Cleats’’ campaign — an initiative that allows philanthropic passions to come to life through a pair of customized cleats or, in Belichick’s case, sneakers. The Patriots will sport them only in Week 13, representing several charitable causes from intellectual and developmental disabilities (Best Buddies) to single-parent support services (One Family) to animal rights (MSPCA Angell). A look at some of the participating Patriots and their charitable causes: Devin and Jason McCourty — Players Coalition and Embrace Kids Foundation After donning matching pairs the past two years, with one cleat dedicated to social injustice and the other to sickle cell, the Patriots’ twin brothers … [Read more...] about Patriots players share the inspiration behind their personalized cleats

Keith Roach To Your Health Published 10:21 p.m. UTC Aug 2, 2018 Dear Dr. Roach: I recently was diagnosed with kidney cancer, and my wife is now getting treatment for breast cancer. Would cooking on a nonstick skillet have caused the cancers? My wife was using one for quite some time, but not anymore. B.R. Dear B.R.: When someone is diagnosed with a serious disease, but especially cancer, it is a human trait to think of possible causes. We want to have as much control over our fate as possible.

In the past, African patients have had poor access to medical advances, even as scientists use them as research subjects. Rotimi worried that genetics might again exploit the 1 billion people n sub-Saharan Africa, ignoring their need for treatments for HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and cancer. “The genomic revolution was going to fly over Africa,” he says, “and tomorrow’s … [Read more...] about Cancer Scientists Have Ignored African DNA in the Search for Cures
