One in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, but Ulrike Boehmer, a Boston University School of Public Health researcher who studies health disparities in LGBT lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, says that cancer poses a particularly dangerous threat for members of the LGBT community, especially women. In a first-of-its-kind study published in Cancer, Boehmeran SPH associate professor of community health sciences, reports that women who identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual LGB have less access to care after cancer treatment compared to heterosexual women. Post-cancer care is extremely important to prevent recurrences, detect early warning signs, and screen for long-term effects of cancer treatments, making these findings particularly troubling, Boehmer says.

It's only the third episode and already Bionic Woman feels like it's repeating itself—not a good sign. From the training montages this week set to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Noisettes last week…I'll put my money on The Gossip for next time to the talky glower-offs between Jaime and Sarah, it seemed like we'd already seen everything in "Sisterhood", and it wasn't exactly compelling television the first time around. By now I empathize with Sarah's condition: I'm not actually able to feel like I hate this show, but intellectually I can imagine what that would feel like. Within the frustrating concentric circles that passed for plot advancement, we at least got a little bit more information on how Sarah became the bionic bitch she is today—namely that she killed her own sister in a car wreck almost identical to the one that nearly killed Jaime.
