World Cancer Day seeks to raise awareness about the physical and psychological impact of this disease.
Every 4th of February is World Cancer Day, a disease that affects one in three men and one in four women throughout their lives. The cases diagnosed in Spain are around 200,000 annually. Fortunately, thanks to scientific advances, more and more patients are overcoming the disease and there is a general increase in life expectancy.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has proposed a global goal to reduce deaths from this disease by 2% per year, which would mean saving 8 million lives in ten years.
In addition to the technological and scientific advances that help the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, it is commonly accepted that maintaining certain healthy habits on a personal level represents a positive factor in cancer prevention.
Do you want to live a perfect summer? All Canary Islands are a treasure, but there are three jewels we can't let you miss.
From north to south, from east to west, Spain is full of spectacular villages and landscapes to leave you with your mouth open. Leaving the peninsula, the Canary Islands are a different option for a complete holiday. Because this beautiful archipelago is not just a sun and beach destination. Now that we have time, from Elba Hotels we want to reveal three Canarian secrets so that you can prepare your next holiday to this natural wonder. Take note!
Can you imagine seeing the sea from the desert? Of course, this image is unique and possible in the Dunes of Maspalomas, in the south of Gran Canaria. The largest concentration of sand on the islands ends at the “Playa del Inglés” and its colour changes according to the position of the sun, so a barefoot walk at sunset is a real treat.
The origin of St. Patrick's Day comes from Ireland and since its inception it has been celebrated everywhere in the world where there was an Irish.
There are only a few days left to the most famous Irish feast: St. Patrick's Day, the patron saint of Ireland, which is celebrated on March 17. Sure you have seen images of this holiday where the streets and people are dressed in green, but if you want to know who is St. Patrick and why it is celebrated, we tell you in today's blog.
St. Patrick's Origin
What began as a religious feast has, over time, been transformed into a mass celebration. St. Patrick was a Catholic missionary who lived in the 5th century and is considered to have introduced Catholicism to Ireland. However, and as a curiosity, it seems that the saint was not of Irish origin, but Scottish or Welsh. In his youth he was kidnapped by pirates and taken to Northern Ireland, where he was sold into slavery. When he managed to escape, St. Patrick continued his religious studies and founded several Christian schools and monasteries.
