This article talks about a new invention of a bra that detects breast cancer. This article discusses how the bra is very similar to the self-examination people should be doing at home to help prevent themselves from breast cancer. This product would be great for people who are embarrassed to do self-exmaination. But all woman should still go for regular mammograms for further protection.
This article closely relates to what we have been talking about in class, self examination is vital, and other checkups.

This article was quite interesting and entertaining to read. It said that indian cuisine spices provide an array of healthy benefits in a healthy lifestyle.
It says: Spices increase the nutritional quality of food and reduce the need for other less healthy flavours like salt, fat and sugar.
But as we learnt in class this needs to be balanced with regular exercise and other healthy foods.

This article talks about the affect of STI's on relationships and the body in general. One of the messages in this article is not to try and forget about having an STI, its to get it checked out and treated as soon as possilbe. Early detection is prevention is another message in this article.
