Diseases

There are millions of diseases around the world but there's one in particular that I interests me more than others: CANCER. But, will be concentrating on that in the my post later on.

Here are some facts that I found while surfing through the net about random diseases.
  • People that use mobile phones are 2.5 time more likely to develop cancer in areas of the brain that are adjacent to the ear they use to talk on the mobile phone.

  • Over 90% of diseases are caused or complicated by stress.

  • Many cancer patients that are treated with chemotherapy lose their hair. For some when the hair grows back, it can grow back a different colour, or be curly or straight.

  • Diabetes is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for about 180,000 deaths per year.

  • Chances of a women getting breast cancer are increased by excessive use of alcohol.

  • A popular superstition is that if you put a piece of bread in a baby's crib, it will keep away diseases.

  • A person that is struck by lightning has a greater chance of developing motor neurons disease.
