Paralyzed Man Walks After Nose Cells Transplanted Into Spinal Cord

The same cells that give Darek Fidyka his sense of smell are also helping him walk again.

Breast cancer

Breast cancer is a very common cancer among women, affecting one in eight women in the United States at one point in their lives. The American Cancer society predicts that almost forty thousand women will die from breast cancer in 2014. To avoid becoming one of them, it is important that you take steps to prevent the risk of getting breast cancer. Like many health conditions, the risk of getting breast cancer can be significantly reduced by limiting alcohol intake, not smoking and having a healthy diet. Some studies have also shown that women who breast feed their children have a lower risk of breast cancer, as do women who are physically active. While improving one’s lifestyle is a good way to prevent breast cancer, there are concrete things that can be done to further lower the risk of detecting cancer too late. All women should regularly inspect their breasts to make sure that there are no lumps or discolorations. All women over fifty should get mammogram screenings every year to detect any cancer that may be developing in their breasts.
