As beloved gameshow host Alex Trebek continues to struggle with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, the network that has been his home for 30 years is cooking up a plan to replace him.
On his podcast “Straight Shuter: Naughty But Nice,” Rob Shuter reveals what’s really going on behind the scenes of the popular show.
“Alex is 78 years old, and the show was already talking about a replacement host when he retired. Now with his health scare, that process has been accelerated,” sources told Straight Shuter.
Trebek has just three years left in his contract, but the network is refusing to take any chances, especially with his declining health.

“Jeopardy is still a very successful show and makes millions for the network. There was no way it was just going to end after Alex retired. The idea has always been to ‘refresh’ the formula, not change it,” the sources said.

In 2014, reported show execs were looking to replace Trebek after he threatened to quit the show. Insiders at the time said he would not renew his contract at the end of 2016.
Trebek, however, decided to keep his famed role, and when he announced his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, he made it clear he would continue working.
Best wishes, Alex. We are pulling for you all the way. Great Canadian.

Alex Trebek to undergo second round of chemotherapy

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is to undergo another round of chemotherapy as his pancreatic cancer battle has taken a turn for the worse.
The 79-year-old, who returned as the host the U.S. TV game show just last week after an earlier round of treatment, has now revealed he needs to undergo chemotherapy again.
“I was doing so well,” he said during an interview on U.S. TV show Good Morning America on Tuesday. “And my numbers went down to the equivalent of a normal human being who does not have pancreatic cancer. So we were all very optimistic. And they said, ‘Good, we’re gonna stop chemo, we’ll start you on immunotherapy.’”
However, he said that recently he had felt ill and doctors told him he needs more chemotherapy to fight the disease.
“I lost about 12 pounds in a week. And my numbers went sky high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed. So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that’s what I’m doing,” the Canadian compere added.
He also said that his cancer had caused him “excruciating pain” and “fatigue”.

Alex announced he had stage four pancreatic cancer in March, but last month delighted fans by announcing he had finished his chemotherapy and would be returning to work on Jeopardy!
He had already filmed the current 35th season of the quiz show before returning to treatment.
Doctors got him now, he's dead meat. he'll live till he's broke.

In 1985, MacKillop and colleagues found that of 118 Canadian doctors who treat lung cancer, only 16% would want chemotherapy for symptomatic metastatic bone disease.

Dave Doctorski I did a search also, and I saw one by the sun that said, "Game over for Alex Trebek?" Seems like something they should definitely be apologizing for...

"Alex Trebek Has Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer"
Bummer. Kind of always thought of him as a relatively ageless tv ornament.
Pancreatic cancer is something like the third leading killer among cancers an receives something like 3% of the research funding
Because there is apparently no surefire way to screen for it and it develops rapidly.
It is one of the cancers that has not been beaten. No big breakthroughs.
Awe, . . . . next thread please . . .

Not quite Sherlock. Now look up Ozone Treatments at the Cancer Society.

I assume most members cannot link #1 respiratory illness, there is a really good fukking reason they put the two in different groups that are supposed to be vastly different.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels.[2] CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack).[2] Other CVDs include stroke, heart failure, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, abnormal heart rhythms, congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, carditis, aortic aneurysms, peripheral artery disease, thromboembolic disease, and venous thrombosis.[2] [3]
The underlying mechanisms vary depending on the disease.[2] Coronary artery disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease involve atherosclerosis.[2] This may be caused by high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes mellitus, lack of exercise, obesity, high blood cholesterol, poor diet, and excessive alcohol consumption, among others.[2] High blood pressure is estimated to account for approximately 13% of CVD deaths, while tobacco accounts for 9%, diabetes 6%, lack of exercise 6% and obesity 5%.[2] Rheumatic heart disease may follow untreated strep throat.[2]
It is estimated that up to 90% of CVD may be preventable.[5] [6] Prevention of CVD involves improving risk factors through: healthy eating, exercise, avoidance of tobacco smoke and limiting alcohol intake.[2] Treating risk factors, such as high blood pressure, blood lipids and diabetes is also beneficial.[2] Treating people who have strep throat with antibiotics can decrease the risk of rheumatic heart disease.[7] The use of aspirin in people, who are otherwise healthy, is of unclear benefit.[8] [9]
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death globally.[2] This is true in all areas of the world except Africa.[2] Together CVD resulted in 17.9 million deaths (32.1%) in 2015, up from 12.3 million (25.8%) in 1990.[4] [3] Deaths, at a given age, from CVD are more common and have been increasing in much of the developing world, while rates have declined in most of the developed world since the 1970s.[10] [11] Coronary artery disease and stroke account for 80% of CVD deaths in males and 75% of CVD deaths in females.[2] Most cardiovascular disease affects older adults. In the United States 11% of people between 20 and 40 have CVD, while 37% between 40 and 60, 71% of people between 60 and 80, and 85% of people over 80 have CVD.[1] The average age of death from coronary artery disease in the developed world is around 80 while it is around 68 in the developing world.[10] Diagnosis of disease typically occurs seven to ten years earlier in men as compared to women.[12]

At some point somebody better ask why the death rates soar when tons of money from the WHO is invested in any disease.

BTW, respiratory and lower respiratory are the same thing. total score= 24M
Children starving and kept from basic meds by the WHO = 9,125,000M

The 5 of years WWII to =45,625,000M
Since WWII=638,750,000M

All at the hand of the Jewish Bankers yet they are never identified with being the cause. Lets see how it goes after word gets out about what big creeps they really are. They needed to be fired in 1300AD.
