Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
The leading Canadian online pharmacy, BigMountainDrugs.com, is expanding its efforts to provide consumers with important information about common heath issues and related prescription medication. Big Mountain Drugs has partnered with a number of health information sites which aim to educate and update consumers on specific health concerns such as diabetes, gastroparesis, gouty arthritis, glaucoma, and now breast cancer.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in women in the US (behind heart disease), and breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death (behind lung cancer). The new online resource, http://www.breastcancercare.us, is intended to educate women on the symptoms, causes, diagnosis, and treatment of the disease, including breast cancer medications. The site also helps visitors keep current on breast cancer research.
Among the breast cancer care site's most popular posts are "What to Expect When You find a Lump in Your Breast", "Hormone Therapy for Breast Cancer", and "Tumor Paint to Transform Cancer Surgery". Visitors to the site can expect to leave feeling encouraged. Breast cancer treatment is evolving rapidly and, according to breastcancer.org, the number of survivors in the United States more than doubled between 1971 and 2007. In 2011, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the US.
A recent study by the Pew Research Center showed that, while professionals remain the number one resource for those with health concerns, online resources are a significant and growing source of health information. People are searching the internet for reviews on diseases and conditions, medical treatments, prescription drugs, online pharmacies, doctors, hospitals and clinics. Big Mountain Drugs wants to ensure that the information they are getting is accurate, relevant, and up to date.
Besides providing reliable health information, BigMountainDrugs.com is also focused on providing safe, reliable and inexpensive medications to its customers. To fulfill this mission, the Canadian pharmacy is constantly searching for the top value on prescription medications, seeking out the best suppliers of the best quality products with the best pricing worldwide.
The online drug store offers repeat customers a 5% Rewards Program, and also partners with onlinepharmacycoupons.com to provide customers additional savings when they buy Arimidex and buy Femara for breast cancer.
