...w scared the women are. Those are all things that could weigh their decision one way or another, but I found it interesting that only 3% believed it was all four as I thought that’d be the highest one chosen. In addition to the women’s beliefs, the study discussed self-breast examination and if the women knew how to properly perform the precaution or not. The major detail I gathered was that 70.8% of market women had no idea how to perform a SBE (Oladimeji, Tsoka-Gwegweni, Igbodekwe, Twomey, Akolo, Balarabe, Atilola, Jegede, Oladimeji). That statistic is horrible, if the women cannot perform a simple precaution to save their life, what are the odds you are going to go to the doctor? Slim to none. In conclusion, Nigerian citizens’ knowledge/awareness of breast cancer is lacking tremendously which is a large proportion of the reason why Nigeria has such low standards.

- “If we don’t share our experiences how we can learn, how will we grow and survive?” asked Angelo Merendino. Angelo looked at the world a little differently than the general population. On his website, He discusses “ My approach to photography is not tell people what to do or how to do it. Instead, AI work to create environments where people feel like the most authentic selves- ad then capture what happens”. In all in photographs, he describes them as “ intimate, honest, and relatable.” (memorists, monsters mastectonmies) His most popular series that I can relate most to is, “ My Wife’s with Breast Cancer”....

- In terms of restrictions placed on a company by the government, America is surely seen as lax. For example, analyzing its current safety laws, not only have thousands of chemicals been unsuccessfully tested with no information about their repercussions on the environment or human health, but the ones that are accounted for are not evaluated when placed in a product. The latter is significant in combination with the current archaic policy of dose determining hazard, contradictory to the evaded scientific data that low doses, for instance of hormone disturbing chemicals, may be harmful because they impersonate the body’s own creation and synthesis of hormones....

Epigenetics plays a significant role in understanding the heritable functions of DNA and how cancer is formed. It is through exploring specific epigenetic changes scientists hope to further understand why these changes occur, and how they affect the DNA.... [tags: Cancer, Disease, Cancer Research, Treatment]

- Once again, the story is floating around Facebook that the using antiperspirants cause breast cancer. The claim states that cancer causing chemicals in the products enter the body through tiny nicks in the skin, thereby infecting the lymph nodes surrounding the breast tissue. The latest says to wash the underarm with soap and water before going to bed. According to the Facebook post, deodorants are fine; however, using antiperspirants is what increases the potential for breast cancer. It claims that most breast cancers start in the upper quadrants of the breast in the lymph nodes nearest to the armpit, because that's where toxins from the antiperspirants congregate....
