Week 12

 I really enjoyed when we discussed the two articles on cancer. At one point the room seemed to be divided between those who have history of cancer in their families and those who don't. This reflects how emotions and fear play an important role when we are trying to make decisions such as how many times you should get tested. It is human to want to save lives but, personally I think that we need to learn to be objectives. Yes emotions should come into play when we are taking decisions but they shouldn't weight as much.

Since we need to be objective, we also have to be sure of the veracity of the information provided to us. We need to be smart about our decisions and if death is our final destiny, we are going to die anyway. Some earlier than others but we all face the same end. We cannot save everyone even if that includes me!
