  All Day Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War   The deadliest weapon of the Civil War was one that nobody could see, killing two soldiers for every one felled by gunfire. The extraordinary casualties caused by that invisible killer, disease; the conventional weapons used to create slaughter on an unprecedented scale; horrific injuries suffered on the battlefield; and the heroic efforts of medical personnel to treat soldiers on both sides are described in detail in “To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War,” a new exhibit runs through 2013 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield. To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War” opens about a month after the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, the first Civil War battle with massive casualties on a scale that indicated what the remaining years of the war would bring. Glenna Schroeder-Lein is the curator, and she worked closely with an exhibits team consisting of John Malinak, Michael Casey, Carla Smith, Katie Grant, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, staff from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, and numerous community groups, institutions, and individuals to create the exhibit. The experiences of actual soldiers are prevalent throughout the exhibit, including quotes and photographs, lending a human touch to the horror of war. Some of the images come from original medical files and graphically depict the effects of deadly weapons and even deadlier germs on the bodies of Union and Confederate soldiers. Paid admission to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is required to view the exhibit. Admission prices are $12 for adults, $9 for senior citizens, and $6 for children. A special admission rate of $5 is available to those who want to visit only the new exhibit. For more information, visit www.presidentlincoln.org.

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the U. S. National Institutes of Health, an estimated 20 to 30 percent of some of the most common cancers in the United States may be related to being overweight and/or to a lack of physical activity. Additionally, recent NCI studies indicate that obesity and being overweight may increase the risk of death from many cancers — up to 14 percent of cancer deaths in men and 20 percent of cancer deaths in women. The mission of the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU is to serve the people of central and southern Illinois by addressing their present and future cancer care needs through education, research, patient care and community service.
