Still an Uphill Battle
Friday 17 March, 2006
I was talking with a couple of women about cancer research this week. There was a story in the Vancouver Sun a couple of days ago about how an enzyme in chili peppers had helped to reduce prostate cancer growth in mice and in human cancer samples. The women noted that it was for prostate cancer and that most cancers being reserached are the ones that affect men. I had thought this was changing, but apparently not.
Part of the way the Breast Cancer Society of Canada raises its funding is through hits on its website. As I recall, for every 100 hits they receive on their website they are able to set up a free screening for a woman who otherwise could not afford one. I have posted a link to the Society's website below. Whenever you visit my blog, please click the link so the BCSC can get an increase in its funding. Breast cancer is still a very serious problem faced by women, so please... go ahead and click already.
