Fox News recently had a health segment on breast cancer through art through the years. I found it very interesting.
- Breast cancer was first known by the Egyptians in 3000 BC and there was no treatment.
- Treatment has only been more than a mastectomy in the past 100 years.
I found it incredibly interesting to talk about the history of such an ailment and how it was portrayed. Maybe I'll add their book to the list of books I should read and haven't gotten around to it. I find a level of frustration in that the disease has been known for 5000 years and only treated for such a short time and there is still no cure. The writers talk about there being a cure in the next 50 years but that is conjecture.
