Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells in some organs or tissues go out of control – growing and increasing in number. Normal cells reproduce themselves throughout a person’s life, but in an orderly and controlled manner.
Antibiotics are among the most important medicines available. They are strong and powerful drugs that are used to cure many bacterial illnesses and infections. Antibiotics work by killing or preventing the growth of specific sensitive bacteria.
Arthritis – literally meaning ‘inflammation of the joints’ – it affects up to four million Canadians in varying way and to varying degrees; it’s the number one cause of long-term disability in Canada; it’s the third most common reason for prescription drug use in Canada.
It is estimated that over 200,000 Canadians have glaucoma1, but only half are aware that they have the disease. Unless one is tested for glaucoma by an eye care professional, they are usually unaware that they have this potentially blinding disease.
Pharmacia is dedicated to providing information and products to help Canadian women. Pharmacia is a leader in the areas of breast cancer, birth control, menopause and other conditions that women may experience throughout their lives.
When blood changes from its normal liquid form into a solid or semi-solid mass, it is called a blood clot. When you cut your finger, a blood clot forms over the cut to create a scab and stop the bleeding.
As most ex-smokers will admit, quitting isn’t easy. That’s because cigarettes give a quick and highly addictive hit of nicotine. Problem is, when you feed your need for nicotine by smoking tobacco, you breathe in over 4,000 harmful chemicals.
