Mind the Gap has a link to a petition protesting the possibility for religious organisations to be exempted from the new laws governing homophobic discrimination. Although it appears that the exemptions probably won't go through, it's best to be on the safe side and pledge your support for no-one being allowed to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, no matter their religious or cultural beliefs. There's no excuse for homophobia.

You have to be a British citizen to sign the petition, and although it says that the cut-off date is 17th Jan, it's apparently been changed.

So go and sign it, and lodge your support for gay couples to be able to adopt children from any adoption agency, not just ones that 'let' them.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
