If you are a person who chooses to procrastinate, stall and make excuses rather than take action now, find out the reason. It is important to find out why you don’t take action when you should.

Procrastination is commonly defined as what happens when you delay or postpone something. Almost every school child has heard the expression, “never put off for tomorrow what you can do today.” However, hearing the expression is not the same as following the words in the expression. People who procrastinate have reasons, excuses and justifications for their procrastination.

Just in case Vice President Biden decides to throw his hat into the ring, check out this graphic
detailing his opinions on some important issues.
For the past few decades, more money has been poured into cancer research, focusing on screening, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Over time, scientists have discovered much about what influences risk for developing certain cancers—from smoking to radiation to HPV—and as a result, we have seen rates decline in these areas. For other cancers, however, rates have been increasing with no sign of abating.
Using data from Cancer.gov, HealthGrove analyzed trends in new cases and deaths for 23 major cancers. They looked at these trends through a historical lens to see what events and behavioral changes could be influencing the cancer burden in America.
