8 Million Clicks Needed


Thanks to Rozella for passing this tag to me. I could not find a better title for this post, so I just copied it from her.

You can help the lives of many women by spreading the word about The Breast Cancer Site and by clicking the image above as many times as you can. If The Breast Cancer Site receives 8 million clicks on the pink button in June, their premier sponsor -Bare Necessities- will donate $10,000 for more free mammograms.

Ok, that is for the ads.

Maybe some of us do not care much about this disease called cancer. What is cancer?

Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display the traits of uncontrolled growth (growth and division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood). These three malignant properties of cancers differentiate them from benign tumors, which are self-limited, do not invade or metastasize. Most cancers form a tumor but some, like leukemia, do not.

Cancer may affect people at all ages, even fetuses, but risk for the more common varieties tends to increase with age. Cancer causes about 13% of all deaths. According to the American Cancer Society, 7.6 million people died from cancer in the world during 2007. Cancers can affect other animals besides humans, and plants, too.



For more info click here. I won't write about the whole definition here as you can easily googling around. Since I want to share information with you, I will also put some pictures as below :

When normal cells are damaged beyond repair, they are eliminated by apoptosis (A). Cancer cells avoid apoptosis and continue to multiply in an unregulated manner (B).

Scary isn't it? So, lets help others who suffer from cancer. Be grateful that we are the lucky peoples who are safe from it. Even many doctors died caused by cancer.

Remember, always do checking if there is any symptom. Never too late!

  6. Salam Faizal. I like your blog and the soccer blog through your link :)

    I have put your name and link in my blogger list. I will read you blog on more topics later on.

    I am more into online business and of course offline business but not MLM. Sorry if this is a bad news for you. But I found out it is just not suitable for me. Yes, I tried before. If you have other offline business (other than MLM of course) to discuss with me, I'd appreciate that :)
