Think PINK !!

waking up in the morning
i feel that i should share some info with u guys that i found in the net
its PINK RIBBON and its related to ...

Breast Cancer, a cancer originating from breast tissue, 
a disease of human and other mammals especially women

Over the course of a lifetime, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer
and these are the risks: 
1. Age and gender- the risk of getting it will increase as you aged, and women are most likely to get it than
    men
2. Family History- you may have higher risk if you have close relative who has had breast cancer.
3. Genes- some people may have genes that are more likely to get it
4. Menstrual cycle- women who got their periods early (before age 12) or went through menopause late
     (after age 55) have higher risk.
5. Alcohol- drinkin more than 1-2 glasses of alcohol a day may increase the risk
6. Childbirth- women who never had children or had them after age 30 have higher risk
7. DES- women who took diethylstilbestrol (DES) to prevent miscarriage may have higher risk after the age  
    40
8. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)- you'll have higher risk if you have received hormone  
     replacement therapy with estrogen for years.

the reason i'm sharing these is because i feel that we should be aware of it
it doesnt mean if you are men, you will not get it,
because chances of men getting it is stil there, just that its lower then women
therefore, we should pay attention to it... 

i'll be posting up another post regarding this topic soon
stay tuned =)

o ya.... HAPPY DIWALI to all Indian friends 

have a great day ahead =)
