Random facts learnt from work:

  • Men and women from the five countries representing Northern Europe (United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands) were more likely to smoke if they had completed college than if their education had stopped at primary school.
    In contrast, women from Southern Europe (Spain, Italy, and Greece) were more likely to smoke if they had progressed further in their
    education.

  • Cancer currently accounts from one in eight deaths - globally.

and thanks to wiki, I finally have names and descriptions for all the abbreviations I keep seeing in the various research journals,

  • eg. RNA = Ribonucleic acid
  • and HCC = Hepatocellular carcinoma
