Re: MILITARY MIGHT

Interesting question, Ken. Nuclear weapons are a topic with tons of paths you could take. You covered the negative sides a bit in this post, but I wonder if there are any reasons why they could make the world more safe? Remember to put a list at the bottom of a post saying where you got your information from. It's important to say where the facts are from, so we know they are true! Here are some videos that may help with your project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwaA-dbVMW8...

I'm really excited for your project! I did a project on nuclear weapons and nuclear energy for my physics class last year. It has been said that if we have a third world war, the planet will not survive because of the threat of nuclear warfare. The threat of nuclear weapons has raised a lot of questions about the ethics of using nuclear power. There's a short video series that explains the pros and cons of it that I found really interesting when I was doing my project.

Re: MILITARY MIGHT

This is a very interesting topic, and I think that you raise many good points and questions. I also think that nuclear weapons tend to cause more harm than good. I think the medical aspect of this project/ question is very interesting, as I am interested in medicine and health. I hope your project goes well!

Hello Dorcas. That's a good research. Solar radiation affects every living thing not human beings alone,i wish to see you work on animals and plants too.just to clarify my point plants require optimum solar radiation to make their own food while excess radiation causes drooping and finally plants death.Animals also require solar radiation to obtain vitamin D and in excess solar radiation some get to a shade and others wallow in mud to cover their skin up.Hoping that this will be of help to...

I think you should also look into when should someone get a screening and how often. I think it is also very cool that scientists are trying to figure out what people are more likely to get certain types of cancer, is people knew this, they would get tested sooner and more frequently, this means that they will get treated for...

Maybe something you could consider looking into is how cancer can be passed down genetically and how it can spread throughout your body.

Hi Caroline! Your post was very informative, and I think it's great that you're looking not only at how cancer leads to death, but also how certain bad habits can lead to cancer. I believe that I live a healthy enough life that I am reducing my risk of developing cancer; however, I'm worried that it won't be enough because there are people who have lived in the apartment downstairs from me my whole life who do almost nothing but smoke all day. It's rather annoying because we're always having...

Re: Research round #3 how does cancer lead to death?

Hi Caroline! Very interesting round of research! You presented your information very clearly and it was nicely organized which made for an easy and informative read, so great job! While reading your post, I started thinking about how some types of cancer have a higher mortality rate. So, if it interests you, maybe it would be beneficial for you to research why this is so. Atop of that, you could also do some research to see if some cancers spread faster/slower than others and why that is so.

Re: Research round #3 how does cancer lead to death?

Hey Caroline, Very detailed post! I never knew that cancer cells don't stick together as well as normal cells. I always thought they stuck together well, since cancer can travel and grow so fast. For your next round, I saw that you are looking into what causes cancer. Perhaps you could look at radiation, which is a proven cause to cancer.
