Posted by Tara Cohen on Jan, Mon 06, 2014

Several years ago, my hair had gotten pretty long. Mid-back, get-caught-between-my-back-and-the-chair, tie-it-in-a-knot, long. It was time for a change, and I figured I would take off a few inches. Then I heard about Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that makes real-hair wigs for children who need them.

Eight Most Preventable Cancers

Eight Most Preventable Cancers

According to the American Cancer Society, one third of American women and half of American men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer over the course of their lives. Only five to ten percent of cancer cases, however, are directly attributed to a genetic source. Of course, some non-genetic factors are outside of our control: chemical exposure, second-hand smoke, carcinogens in the workplace, and so on. But there are still a great many things we can do to limit our cancer risks – eat right, exercise, use sun protection, get regular checkups, avoid known carcinogens (cigarettes and pollution) – and  the first among them is the easiest: be informed.
