Not Beyond Us

Here at Smile-on News we don't like to keep still. In fact, our desire to keep moving can be a bit of an issue when trying to type or do anything deskbound!

More seriously though, we are constantly looking at ways to improve our offerings to you, our readers. You may remember the launch of our app journal, which was very well received at the time. But times change. Readers change. Technology changes. And so do we.

So I'm delighted to be able to share with you our 2nd generation App, available now for iOS (Windows/Android users, wait patiently we are working on it!). The new Smile-on News App is designed to give you all the latest news and articles available on the website, but in an easy to navigate and responsive design.  And of course, it is FREE to download. So if you like what we do, take a look at the new App (you can download it here) and let me know what you think.

The big news this week has been centred on Wednesday’s World Cancer Day, organised by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). With a strapline of 'Not Beyond Us' the event aims to raise awareness and lobby govenrments to change their priorities on cancer research and prevention. Whilst being a focal point for all cancers, the British Dental Health Foundation used the event to highlight the alarming rise in oral cancer cases in the UK, and reinforce the message of the lifestyle factors that are linked with oral cancer.

Speaking prior to World Cancer Day, Chief Executive of the BDHF, Dr Nigel Carter OBE, said: “Choosing healthy lifestyles and early detection are two of the messages World Cancer Day will be promoting on February 4. It is almost as though these messages were created with mouth cancer in mind, given the huge significance they can make to reducing the risk of the disease and catching it early.”

Take a look at the stories from this week here and here.

Until next week…
