#DYK Rosacea affects more than 3 million Canadians

Research shows the facial redness and other noticeable signs of rosacea can significantly impact the emotional and social well-being of sufferers.
Experts are not sure what causes rosacea. They know that something irritates the skin, but rosacea doesn’t seem to be an infection caused by bacteria. It tends to affect people who have fair skin or blush easily, and it seems to run in families.
While there is no cure, rosacea can be controlled and the effects minimized.
Get the facts. Gain control. Feel better.

March 22 is World Water Day

Water is one of the planet’s most precious resources.
Every day, people use water for drinking, agriculture, industry, recreation, hygiene, sanitation, and health care. Water resources are precious and finite. Warming temperatures and other natural and human-made stressors threaten to impact the quantity and quality of our water on a large scale. World Water Day highlights the essential role water plays in our lives and how we can better protect it.

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

This year, Colorectal Cancer Canada (“CCC”) is highlighting the importance of screening with their various activities and the launch of the “#EveryBum” campaign: Colorectal cancer affects everyone and #EveryBum. Get Screened.
 
Their objective is to make all Canadians aware that colorectal cancer is Preventable, Treatable, and Beatable, and, if caught in its early stages, it is 90% curable. As colorectal cancer is not just an old person’s disease, all Canadians should be more aware of the signs and symptoms as well as what to do if they arise. Getting screened regularly is key!
