    Steven P. Jobs, the charismatic technology pioneer who co-founded Apple Inc. and transformed one industry after another, from computers and smartphones to music and movies, has died. He was 56.

    Apple announced the death of Jobs — whose legacy included the Apple II, Macintosh, iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad.

    "We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today," Apple said. "Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."

    He had resigned as chief executive of Apple in August, after struggling with illness for nearly a decade, including a bout with pancreatic cancer in 2003 and a liver transplant six years later.

    Few public companies were as entwined with their leaders as Apple was with Jobs, who co-founded the computer maker in his parents' Silicon Valley garage in 1976, and decades later — in a comeback as stunning as it seemed improbable — plucked it from near-bankruptcy and turned it into the world's most valuable technology company.

    Jobs spoke of his desire to make "a dent in the universe," bringing a messianic intensity to his message that technology was a tool to improve human life and unleash creativity.

    Confirmed: Steve Jobs Underwent Partial Removal of Pancreas in 2004, May Need Total Removal Now

    By Mike Adams, January 16, 2009

    As Steve Jobs' health continues declining, numerous health experts and writers (including myself) have been speculating about the causes and possible cures for his health condition.

    On January 5, after observing Steve Jobs' declining body weight and reviewing his publicly-available medical history, I speculated that he may have undergone a "Whipple procedure," a surgical operation typically undergone by patients suffering from pancreatic cancer.


    The Whipple procedure removes part of the pancreas, gallbladder, small intestine and stomach, leaving patients in a devastating state of digestive difficulty.

    Bloomberg.com is now reporting that Steve Jobs did, indeed, undergo a Whipple procedure in 2004 which removed part of his pancreas. Now, doctors believe Jobs may need to have the remainder of his pancreas surgically removed, leaving him with no pancreas at all.

    That would put Jobs at a very high risk of diabetes and make his insulin and blood sugar management issues quite complex -- the body normally handles all this on autopilot, but without a pancreas, it has to be micro-managed by doctors.

    This new development has sent shockwaves through the Apple, Inc. investment community, where investors are complaining that Steve Jobs hasn't been up front and honest enough about his health disclosures. In his previous announcement in early January, for example, he claimed to suffer from a "nutritional problem," which sort of implies it's a food issue instead of a "my-pancreas-is-missing" issue.

    What Jobs is really suffering from are the devastating effects of cancer surgery. This is what happens when you put your life into the hands of doctors who believe that removing organs is preferable to healing them.

    NaturalNews continues to wish Steve Jobs a speedy recovery and hopes that he will find a holistic solution to his current health challenges.
