Precision Medicine: The Solution to Finding Cures to Cancer?

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women worldwide, and is the second leading cause of death for women (Sun, 2017). It is estimated that 1.7 new million cases are diagnosed every year worldwide (Stewart, 2014), approximately 570,000 of which lead to death (Sun, 2017). As a complex disease, breast cancer contains a wide variety of subtypes characterized by differences at molecular and cellular levels. A molecular subtype constituting 10-20% of all breast cancers (Lehman, 2016), Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC), lacks estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor (ER/PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) expression (Bayraktar, 2013).

We Can’t Look Away: The Effect of Screens on Ocular Physiology

Screens are everywhere in today’s world. As the world operates more and more efficiently through technological advancement, the implications of digitization on our eyes have, until recently, been overlooked. Luckily, screens are more harmless than harmful to our eyes. However, its risks are important and should not be overlooked. Although still requiring further research, it is essential in this day and age for people of all demographics to understand screens’ dangerous and potentially irreversible effects on our ocular physiology…
