Earlier last week, U2's The Edge was invited to share his thoughts on preventive medicine on a panel called "Food as Medicine" at the Milken Global Conference in Beverley Hills, California. Along with Dr. William Li, the co-founder of the Angiogenesis Foundation and author of "Eat to Beat Disease", both men talked about healing people with cancer using the Angiogenesis diet of starving the disease's blood supply by eating certain plant-based foods.

Over a decade ago, The Edge's daughter was a Leukemia cancer survivor, and since 2007 he has been on the Angiogenesis Foundation's board of directors.

The Edge was also interviewed by CNBC's Brian Sullivan about the importance of how a balance of food can help in fighting disease (as well as the future of streaming music). Watch the video below:

In support of Dublin's homeless population and The Simon Community, Bono returned to his annual Christmas tradition of busking on the streets of Dublin for the first time since 2015.

Bono invited the Edge for the very first time and together they performed "Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way" as well as the traditional Christmas Carols "O Holy Night" and "O Night Divine".

Afterwards, organizer Glen Hansard, singer Imelda May, and musician Damien Rice, all performed "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)", a Darlene Love song.

Since 2009, Bono has collaborated with Glen Hansard and other singers, however, Bono missed the last two Christmas busking events in 2016 and 2017.

A makeshift stage was set up and crowds started gathering around it after 4 PM on Grafton Street.

The Dublin charity, Inner City Helping Homeless, reported that over 100 homeless people were discovered sleeping on the streets of Dublin this past Sunday night. There are over 10,000 homeless people (including 4,000 homeless children) living throughout Ireland. Donations can be sent to The Simon Community.
