Image of lemons explaining signs of breast cancer goes viral

Corrine Beaumont, a young designer who created the ‘Know Your Lemons’ breast cancer awareness campaign, says her image of 12 lemons provides women a simple, visual way to learn what breast cancer symptoms can look and feel like.

Beaumont, who lost both her maternal and paternal grandmothers to breast cancer, left her job to start her own charity “Worldwide Breast Cancer” two years ago after she found that very little information on the signs of the potentially deadly disease was available.

Researchers discover why killer whales go through menopause

Researchers discover why killer whales go through menopause

A new study by an international team of researchers has suggested that conflicts between mother and daughter killer whales may elucidate why the females of the species go through menopause.

The researchers sifted through more than forty years of data on killer whales in the northwest Pacific, and found that younger females are more likely to reproduce than their older counterparts.

They discovered that the trend discourages mother killer whales from reproduction, making them more focused on raising their younger members of their families instead.
