Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Cancer: A Massacre on Mankind?
Today, the Big C, Cancer is a worldwide number one killer. We choose this topic as our thinkquest competition to educate the people in the world. To let them know and understand more about the disease. Our entry is to create awareness and to educate people to live a healthy lifestyle in order to stay away from the disease. It is also to provide help to patients suffering from cancer. They will learn more about their illness and can get help appropriately.
We used 2 main colours black and red for our cover page. It is to create an atmosphere to cancer being dark and deadly. In the main page, we have icons which link to various different areas, like:
a. What is cancer?
b. Causes of Cancer
c. Treatment to cancer
d. Prevent of cancer
e. Different types of cancer
Under each of the chapter, we also have write out on the various sub-chapters like:
a. Causes of cancer
ii. Free radical
iv. Biological therapies
v. Bone marrow transplant
iii. Life styles
d. Types of cancer
i. Lung Cancer
ii. Breast Cancer
iii. Prostrate Cancer
iv. Stomach Cancer
i. Contact information
ii. Other helpful books
Under each category, we will introduce the new theory and explain them to the public thoroughly. For example in the various types of cancer, we will include the causes, symptoms and treatment. As for the causes, people will be able to prevent themselves from doing or eating what it may cause them to a danger of getting the cancer. As for symptoms, people will be able to detect weather they are suffering from the cancer and go for treatment at an earlier stage and get will at a faster pace too. As for treatment patients will understand what they are going through and what treatment the doctors are giving them. More or less they can control they own live by knowing them.
Cancer can be prevented. It all depends on weather you are inviting the disease to trigger off in your body. We can prevent them to areas like our diet, our environment, our lifestyle and the way we think.
After understanding the causes of cancer and the ways to prevent them I believe all of us will be at a lower risk of getting the disease. Of course all of us have cancer cells in our body but it all depend on the individual if we let them trigger off and become harmful cancerous cell. However, cancer sometime is hereditary and there is no way to prevent them. Nevertheless, there are also patients who suffered cancer because of external factors. Thus if there is a way to let us understand and make ourselves far from the disease why not go for it.
The is why we choose cancer as our topics.
