To cancel this morning show because I missed a few interesting key points and for a better title, in hopes of a listener's better understanding of Down Syndrome. During the show, jory will go on an internet excursion to see if anything backs up his theory on whether or not the genetic disorder has been brought on by common air pollution, over the past 25 years. So, has the increase of the common activity of driving cars over the past 25 years a contributing factor? Listen and then you decide.

Reba Riley is the debut author of Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: A Memoir of Humor & Healing In 30 Religions, the founder of the Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome community online, and a blogger at Patheos.com
Reba grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home where the wallpaper & dinner napkins featured Bible verses, & the Smurfs were considered demonic. She told her kindergarten class the letters of Santa's name could be arranged to "Satan." Reba’s 10,000 hours of education included evangelical schools, Christian college followed by a stint at the Focus of the Family Institute with Dr. James Dobson, and an intensive ministry training program at a megachurch in Colorado Springs—a program that swiftly kicked her out when she shared her religious doubts with the leadership. Reba lost everything - including herself. Enter Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.
Reba got sick. Really sick. With a near-debilitating chronic mystery illness doctors couldn’t diagnose or treat. At 29, the illness made her vulnerable enough that she finally had to face the fact she’d avoided for the better part of a decade: her spirit was sicker than her body. Reba decided to undertake a spiritual recovery program: she would visit thirty religions before her thirtieth birthday—not to find a religion, but to find peace.
Through her adventures, Reba realized she didn’t have to choose religion to choose God…or good. She discovered sometimes we have to get lost to get found. Two years after completing her thirty religions project and eighteen months after recovering from her illness, Reba is here to share dispatches from her journey of healing.

On The Curepanel Talk Show this week, we launched a new talk series on rare cancers/diseases, discussing Lynch syndrome and its Emotional implications with Megan Myers, a genetic counselor at UCSF, and Georgia Hurst and David Dubin who are Lynch syndrome survivors and advocates.
Lynch Syndrome is characterized by the inheritance of genetic defects in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2 genes, and predisposes families to developing colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer in women.
The panel discussion educated the audience about the genes linked to Lynch Syndrome and their association to other diseases, including the diagnosis, treatment and management of Lynch syndrome. In addition the panelists emphasized the importance of seeing a genetic counselor before and after testing, who can help deal with the emotionally taxing diagnosis of the disease, explain about its implications and screening measures, provide information about support groups, and also encourage other family members to get tested.
The Cure Panel Talk Show Team thanks the panelists and the audience for a very informative discussion.
