Pokemon causes cancer. Looks like they're not just limited to epileptic seizures anymore. (via Gamespot)

Something tells me Nintendo will not be amused.

More clever gene names. I particularly like evander, Thor, and cheap date.

This reminds me of the Ayds diet candy story.

Oncologists have a sense of humor, too. At least, I hope this was humor and not ignorance of pop culture.

It would be even better if Pokemon caused prostate cancer. Not that prostate cancer is funny but it would be a little easier to say you got the "Pokemon in the rear."

There's an important developmental gene called sonic hedgehog.

Still no cure for Pokemon.

Ironically it's a genetic disease: you cannot catch 'em at all.

I never thought I'd be so excited at reading about Pokemon, but as a smoker--this could be some good news. (Oh, don't look at me like that. It's not like you thought smokers were a rational lot to begin with. Sure, we're all hoping to one day smoke cancer free.)

"The bad news, Mr Jones, is that you've got a Jigglypuff. The good news, and this is very good news indeed, is that it does not seem to be evolving."
