Cervical cancer kills 500,000 people every year, fear is not checked in time

 Cervical cancer kills 500,000 people every year, fear is not checked in time

Everyone has a mother, sister-in-law, brother-in-law in their house. They may have looked healthy. However, in reality, they are always at risk of a fatal disease. That is - cervical cancer. Every woman between 30 and 60 years of age is at risk of this disease.

Women who are married at a young age, have many children, have sexual relations with many people, and take family planning pills for a long time are at high risk of cervical cancer. Women who have sex only once in their life are equally at risk of this disease.

Because of this danger, it is in the first place among the cancers that occur in women. After this disease, the treatment is expensive and complicated. "That's why it's better not to get sick", said Dr. Sarita Ghimire says, 'And, that can be done easily.'

Expert experience

Gynecologist and oncologist Sarita Ghimire, who has permanent residence in Ramechhap, is an MBBS and MD from the Institute of Medical Studies (IOM).

When he got his MD in 2004 in Gynecology and Obstetrics, cancer hospitals were just starting to open in Nepal. Along with this, the number of cancer patients was increasing rapidly.

Dr. is looking at that situation. Ghimire went to Bharatpur Cancer Hospital and took special training related to cancer. After that, she also went to Pakistan and UK for specialist training. Since then, it has been 15 years since he worked in the prevention of cervical cancer.

Dr. is currently working as a chief consultant at Talchikhel Cancer Care Foundation in Lalitpur. Ghimire's emphasis is on early disease detection. For this purpose, she reaches district after district to raise public awareness. In his experience, 6 to 8 out of 100 people who come to the hospital for cervical check-up have already reached the transition stage of cancer. Dr. Ghimire says, 'This data shows the benefits of raising public awareness.'

When she joined Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital, she became more active in running camps in the districts. In those camps, information was given about various cancers including cervical cancer, breast cancer. Women have more cervical cancer, but since it can be prevented, the number of people who come to the hospital for examination has increased. There is an experience of wandering. And, it has given him professional satisfaction.

In the camps, she used to keep scary photos, afraid to go to the hospital for an examination. It is human nature not to take anything seriously and not to change habits until fear arises in the mind, Dr. Ghimire says, 'which will become fatal itself tomorrow.'

According to him, around 528,000 women in the world suffer from cervical cancer every year. What is the situation in Nepal? "In Nepal, 20-22 percent of women who come to the hospital for cancer treatment suffer from cervical cancer", Dr. Ghimire says, 'Detailed study is yet to be done on this.'

There are no symptoms at first

After the cancer of the cervix has increased a lot, foul-smelling and blood-tinged water starts to flow. The appearance of blood even when there is no menstruation or the appearance of blood again in women who have dried up their periods is also a sign of cervical cancer. When this cancer spreads a lot, it causes bloating, leg swelling, waist and back pain, and problems with defecation and urination.

To avoid this, women who have reached the age of 30 and who have had sex, even if it is only once in their life, should be examined by a trained health worker at least once every three to five years. Ghimire suggests. She says, 'Women who have dry periods and who have undergone surgery due to the possibility of cancer should also undergo regular examination of the uterus.'

During the examination, the health workers put medicine in the mouth of the uterus and check the visual inspection with acetic acid (VREA). Earlier, Pap Smear Test (PST) was used to detect the presence of cancer infection in the mouth of the cervix or not. VREA is more of a scientific method than that.

Infection can be prevented if known

Cervical cancer is caused by infection with a virus called human papilloma. This virus takes the form of cancer after 15 to 20 years of infection. Dr. According to Ghimire, the human papilloma virus can survive for 15-20 years. If the immunity is high, the body can even eliminate it. In those with low immunity, it causes subtle changes and causes cancer.

Cervical cancer can be prevented by knowing before regular check-up. Ghimire says. "However, our women are so involved in household responsibilities that they don't even have time to think of a hospital until the illness takes a serious form."

Breast cancer causes and treatment

 Breast cancer causes and treatment

Recently, the problem of breast cancer in women is increasing. The exact cause of breast cancer cannot be said. 5 to 10 percent of these are also hereditary.

The Nepal Health Research Council conducted a study on breast cancer in seven districts of Nepal, out of which the number of women with breast cancer was very high in five districts.

Various studies have shown that women between the ages of 50 and 60 are more prone to breast cancer than others. In Nepal, breast cancer is more common among women in the age group of 40 to 50 years.


Suzuki Dashain Offer

The main symptom of breast cancer is swelling in the breast. Such a girkha is painless and grows. There are problems such as burying of nipples, discoloration, thickening of the skin, pus or blood flowing from nipples, and non-healing of wounds.


Symptoms of breast cancer can appear very late. Therefore, if you want to detect breast cancer in time, you should not wait for the symptoms. Women over 40 should have a mammogram once a year. If mammogram is not available, then ultrasound should be done.

Women over the age of 20 should have a breast exam every year. If you do the examination in this way, it can be detected before it occurs and timely treatment can be provided.

If the disease is diagnosed at the last stage or if there is a complicated type of cancer, the patient may die during the treatment.


All cancer hospitals in Nepal provide primary treatment for breast cancer. But serious treatment is only available in some hospitals.

Earlier, in case of breast cancer, surgery was done by cutting off the breast, but now, in hospitals including Nepal Cancer Hospital, treatment is done by preserving the breast as much as possible. Which is called brace conserved surgery in medical language. 40 to 50 percent of patients are operated on with breast preservation. Apart from that, breast cancer should also be treated. Sentinel biopsy is done by giving a small amount of medicine to remove the cyst. It is checked whether it has spread to other parts of the body.

But if there is more than one girkha in the breast, then the breast should be cut off and thrown away. Similarly, in case of inflammatory breast cancer (a rare and complicated cancer), even if the disease is complicated and the skin has been eaten away, the breast must be removed. In this way, even if the breast is cut out, tissue can be brought from other parts of the body and placed in the cut place.

After treatment, patients can return to normal life

Cancer is not the end of life, it is the beginning of a new life. Many women who have recovered from cancer are living normal lives.

Five to 10 percent of breast cancer patients have a chance of recurrence after treatment. Therefore, you should not be confident that the treatment has been done. After the treatment of cancer, breast examination should be done every 3 months for two years and every 6 months after the next two years. From this, it can be seen whether there is a possibility of the disease reoccurring.

How much does the treatment cost?

Breast cancer screening does not cost much. The government pays for the treatment. If cancer target (targeted) therapy has to be done, the treatment costs will increase.

This increases the cost of using proteins that control how cancer cells grow, divide, and spread, and when the cured cancer comes back.

"Delayed treatment kills patients in Nepal more than cancer"

 "Delayed treatment kills patients in Nepal more than cancer"

Cancer has become a rapidly growing health problem. It causes loss of people as well as wealth. Cancer can be completely cured if detected early. But in the case of Nepal, due to the practice of going to the hospital late, the number of deaths in a short period of time is increasing due to the delay in identification and treatment.

This experience is no less than a trauma for the victim and his family. Therefore, if you can pay attention to the root of the problem, you can avoid this disease. Experts are suggesting important changes in lifestyle to avoid the risk of cancer.

The most important part of lifestyle is physical exercise. Cancer specialist Dr. Vivek Acharya says. Some chemicals produced during exercise prevent or reduce the risk of cancer in the body. Therefore, all age groups should do regular exercise, Dr. Acharya suggests.

According to a study published in JAMA Oncology, just two minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day, such as running, climbing stairs, doing housework and playing with children, can reduce the risk of cancer by 32 percent.

Cancer specialist Dr. Arun Shahi also says that cancer can be avoided if daily exercise is included in the daily routine. He says that not only cancer but also other non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be avoided.

Dr. Arun Shahi

But he says that excessive exercise can prove fatal. Balanced exercise should be done. Do not do any exercise less. And don't do too much. "There are many cases of death due to the body not being able to cope with too much exercise," he says.

Obesity is the second leading cause of cancer worldwide. If there is more obesity, the fund can grow uncontrollably. Weight gain is associated with breast, colon, kidney, prostate, stomach, pancreatic and other cancers. Exercise burns body fat. And he says that it strengthens the muscles.

The link between exercise and cancer

Dr. According to Shahi, during exercise, toxins in our body are released through sweat. Blood circulation is fast and efficient. As a result, the body's metabolism is balanced.

A balanced metabolism means that the heart carries good blood to the cells. Oxygen purifies the bad blood by bringing it to the lungs. Exercise activates blood circulation. Exercising does not interfere with blood circulation. Which can't cause major diseases like cancer due to obesity. Reduces the amount of fat in the body and strengthens the muscles. If the muscles that pump the heart and lungs are strengthened, the body will be healthy when the oxygen and blood flow in the body is good.

If you pay attention to exercise, diet and weight, 90 to 95 percent of cancer can be avoided. Shahi says.

Diet is also a factor in cancer

The current eating style promotes cancer. Shahi says. Rice contains carbohydrates, pulses contain protein, vegetables contain fiber and fish contains fat. Daily pulses, rice and vegetables are digestible. But now, the habit of eating fish and meat on a daily basis increases body weight and stomach related diseases, he says.

Not only these foods, now everyone's choice is fast food. Fast food increases obesity and increases unnecessary calories. Now a small happy news is celebrated and most of the celebrations are meat dishes and alcohol consumption. This also causes the risk of cancer over time. Shahi says.

In a survey conducted by the Oncology Department of Patan Health Science Academy last year on 256 people aged 30 to 80 years old, people who eat stale rotten food, fast food, red meat, fatty food and a history of Hpylori infection on a daily basis showed a higher risk of stomach cancer.

Every year 25 thousand cancer patients are added in Nepal

About 25 thousand cancer patients are added every year in Nepal. Of which 70 percent die every year. The reason is the lack of quick identification, late arrival at the hospital and the lack of cancer treatment hospitals. Acharya says.

It is also more common to go to the pharmacy and take medicine without testing to cure symptoms of cancer such as stomach ache, ringworm and fever. "It is too late to guess the signs and take medicine and wait and see," he says.

Dr. According to Shahi, Nepal has the highest number of lung cancer patients. In the second place, cervical cancer patients have been seen, followed by breast cancer, stomach cancer, large intestine and rectal cancer patients.

Similarly, lung cancer is most common in men.

The situation is different in villages and cities

Cervical cancer is more common among women in rural and remote areas. Dr. Shahi says, 'Human papilloma virus infection, which is transmitted through unprotected sex, is more common there. Also, there is a tradition of not practicing condoms, not cleaning, getting married early and having children early, having many children. Unprotected sex is rare in the city. When condoms are practiced and cleanliness is taken care of, cervical cancer is comparatively less.

Fast food, less physical activity, excessive consumption of alcohol in the city has increased the problem of obesity. Due to obesity, the risk of breast cancer will increase. Shahi says.

If we look at men, lung cancer is more common in rural and urban areas due to the higher number of smokers in both proportions.

"Treatment is better than chronic disease if detected in time"

If it is detected in the early stages, cancer can be treated better than chronic diseases. Shahi says. If you have sugar and blood pressure, you will not be cured even if you take regular medicine. But if the cancer is detected in the early stages, the cancer will be eradicated completely, he says.

How to stay away from the risk of cancer?

Dr. Shahi has suggested to take care of the following to avoid the risk of cancer.

1. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, for example, which may cause cancer.

2. Do not eat rotten, processed food, junk food.

3. Exercise regularly to make you sweat.

4. If there is an unnecessary lump in the body, if the color has changed, then the test should be done immediately.

  5. Women may occasionally undergo a mammogram for breast cancer and a pap test for the cervix, and be vaccinated against cervical cancer.

6. In case of hereditary cancer, cancer screening should be done once a year.

7. Do not have unprotected sex.

Colorectal (large intestine) cancer

Colorectal (large intestine) cancer


Our digestive system digests food and absorbs nutrients from it. Esophagus (food pipe), stomach (stomach), small intestine and large intestine together make up the digestive system. The large intestine begins with the colon, which is about 5 feet long and ends at the rectum and anus.

Sleeping in underwear does not prevent cancer

Sleeping in underwear does not prevent cancer

``Sleeping with underwear causes cancer.'' There is a similar understanding in the public mind now. It has been said that it is harmful to women to wear bras and panties while sleeping at night. Some English-Hindi journals seem to write that wearing a bra causes breast cancer.

Five causes that cause liver cancer

Five causes that cause liver cancer

The risk of liver cancer is increasing. And, one of the main reasons for this is food. In other words, a poor diet has increased the risk of liver cancer today. However, poor nutrition alone does not increase the risk. There are other causes of liver cancer.

The liver is the largest internal organ in our body. In adults, its length is 15 cm (about 6 inches). It is also the heaviest part of the body, weighing from one and a half kilos to one and a half kilos. It occurs on the right side of our abdomen.

Does it work

It does more than 500 things in the body. Its main function is to purify the blood coming from the digestive tract and circulate it throughout the body. The liver also converts blood into energy. This is why the medicine we take is also transmitted to the body. However, we do not pay much attention to how to protect such an important liver.

How does liver cancer occur?

1. Drinking too much alcohol can lead to a disease called liver cirrhosis, which can turn into cancer.

2. Hepatitis B and C can cause the liver to weaken quickly, which can lead to cancer.

3. A person undergoing dialysis is more likely to get liver cancer due to an infection.

4. Diabetes can lead to a disease called non-alcoholic fatty liver, which can lead to cancer.

5 Obesity causes fat to build up in the liver. It also increases the risk of cancer.

How to know

Frequent pain in the upper right part of the abdomen is a symptom of liver cancer.

- Loss of appetite, sudden weight loss can also be a symptom of liver cancer.

- Water starts to freeze in the stomach due to liver cancer.

- Yellowness increases in the body due to liver cancer.

- Fever comes regularly. It does not heal even after months of treatment.

What is leukemia?

What is leukemia?

Leukemia is an early stage of a type of blood cancer. It can be easily treated. But, for that, the disease must have been known at an early stage. If not treated in time, it can be dangerous and even fatal.

How to know

How do you know if your child has leukemia? Because its symptoms are normal, which we do not take seriously. However, from the following things, it can be known that the child is afraid of this disease.

- Repeatedly having the same type of infection

- Very high fever

- Weakening of the child's immune system

-Feeling tired and weak all the time

- Having anemia

- There is a problem of bleeding from nails and gums

- Experiencing pain in the joints

-Swelling different parts of the body

-There are knots in different parts of the body

- Having problems with the liver

- Frequent headaches. Or migraine

- Paralysis means having a stroke

- To be confused about something again and again. That is to be mentally stressed


-Increased skin itching problem

- Having a problem of not feeling hungry

- It takes a long time for any wound to heal

Leukemia spreads rapidly

Early symptoms of leukemia include the flu and other serious illnesses. However, when leukemia spreads rapidly, all the above-mentioned problems start appearing at once. If these problems are ignored, leukemia can spread to other parts of the body. This is why the body begins to swell abnormally. But if the symptoms of leukemia are identified and treated at the right time, there is no risk of blood cancer.

Leukemia is a dangerous disease

Leukemia cells directly affect the blood. Of course, the symptoms of leukemia can be easily detected now. If one ignores it, and leukemia is not treated in time, his life will be only four years at most. This age also depends on the immune system and the type of leukemia.

Drinks that cancer patients should eat

Drinks that cancer patients should eat

We all understand cancer as a major disease. But with early detection and treatment, cancer can be completely cured. The disease causes the cancer cells in the affected area to grow uncontrollably, spread to other tissues, and the cancer cells that are growing uncontrollably die due to lack of oxygen in the blood.

Eventually, uncontrolled cell growth can lead to cancer deaths. The growth of cancer cells needs to be curbed to control or prevent cancer. This restraint is only possible when the environment outside the cell is completely natural.

The main reason for the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells is the disruption of the mechanism for controlling cell division by the accumulation of foreign substances in the extracellular environment. When foreign matter accumulates in the extracellular environment, these substances stimulate the dormant cell's carcinogenic gene to cause uncontrolled division. This uncontrolled growth is cancer and to get rid of it, the toxins present in the environment outside the cell must be purified. This is possible by consuming some naturally occurring fruit and vegetable drinks. Therefore, cancer patients should consume the following fruit juices.

1) Wheat germ juice:

Wheat germ is rich in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is an antioxidant and antimutagenic compound in itself. The fact that chlorophyll intake increases red blood cells has also become public. As blood cells grow, they help kill cancer cells by delivering more oxygen to the cancerous tissue. Wheat germ also contains anti-cancer selenium and lytryl. Wheat germ contains 13 types of vitamins, 20 amino acids, and antioxidants. All of these elements are cancer-resistant.

2) Black Grape Juice:

Grapefruit contains a phytochemical called laminin which helps in removing carcinogens. Grape seed has been used mainly in the treatment of colon cancer. Grapes also contain an element called monoterpenes. Monitoring also plays a key role in removing carcinogens from the body.

3) Carrot juice:

Carrots are also a fruit rich in cancer-resistant phytochemicals. The beta carotene present in carrots plays a major role in the prevention, control, and treatment of skin cancer. Carrots also help heal wounds after cancer tissue damage.

4) Beetroot juice:

Packed with adequate amounts of antioxidants and vitamins, beets are a good source of carotenoids. The carotenoids present in beets play an important role in preventing all types of cancer. Carotenoids are also used to treat leukemia.

5) Tomato juice

Tomato is a treasure trove of vitamin C. In addition to vitamins, spinach contains many minerals and salts, such as sodium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and sulfur. Tomato juice is mainly fed for protest cancer. An ingredient called glutathione present in goulash protects cells from oxidative stress as well as strengthens the immune system.

6) Broccoli juice

Broccoli contains an element called indole-3 carbinol. Indole 3 carbinol plays a key role in the prevention, control, and treatment of breast cancer, cervical cancer, and ovarian cancer. Indole-3 cardinal is understood to be an ingredient that strengthens the estrogen hormone resistance and competition system.

7) Lettuce juice

Rich in sulfur, chlorine, silicon, and vitamin B complex, lettuce juice is useful for lung cancer.

8) Noni juice

Noni juice has the potential to cure first stage cancer. Noni juice destroys cancer cells and helps build white blood cells that eat cancer cells.

Risk of cancer due to poor lifestyle

Risk of cancer due to poor lifestyle

As long as we live, many processes related to life continue in our bodies. One of these actions is to become cells. In this process, the old and dead cells of the body are destroyed by themselves but new cells are formed in their place. This process continues in our bodies.

However, in the case of cancer, red blood cells, and white blood cells in the body begin to grow unnecessarily. These cancer cells slowly spread throughout the body and interfere with the functioning of healthy cells. These diseased cells are called cancers.

Our bodies, like computers, have many types of coding, which are passed on to our bodies by our parents through genes. Cigarettes, tobacco, drugs, and the wrong diet change the genetic code of our cells and this is what causes cancer in our body. Therefore, our lifestyle is responsible for getting cancer or not.

According to doctors, poor diet and lifestyle are the main causes of cancer. Inactive people, people who smoke, and people who smoke are at risk of cancer.

The risk of any type of cancer is high in people who smoke and smoke. Therefore, to avoid serious diseases like cancer, the use of tobacco should be stopped immediately.

Smoking can cause lung cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and cervical cancer. Tobacco and gutkha can cause cancer of the mouth and digestive glands. Cigarettes are found to be the biggest cause of cancer in 90 percent of cases.

Cigarettes enter the body when smoking bindi or cigarettes. These elements convert healthy cells into diseased cells and these same cells turn into cancer. There is also danger in not smoking cigarettes or bindi but constantly in contact with second-hand smoke.

Alcohol is dangerous for the body and it also increases the risk of cancer. Prolonged consumption of alcohol increases the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer, and anal cancer.

Uncontrolled weight gain can also lead to cancer and other serious illnesses. To control weight, you need to work hard every day.

It is said that if you work in one place all day, you will have to exercise for half an hour in the morning or evening. It is also important for the health of the body that the calories we eat should be used. Otherwise body fat starts to accumulate and obesity starts to increase. Obesity increases the risk of bladder cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer, etc.

A nutritious diet is needed to protect the body from disease, to get the energy it needs for fitness and to work all day. A nutritious diet means fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, and dried fruits.

It is necessary to pay attention to the quality of oil, spices, and rations used at home. When buying fruits, make sure that no chemicals are used to cook them. Consumption of adulterated and chemical milk and cheese, sweets, and dishes made from it can also be harmful to the body. Let's use nuts and pulses as much as possible in food.

Junk foods are also high in calories and use many harmful ingredients to enhance the taste. Therefore, the body should take only the required amount of nutritious food

The sun's rays are good for the body, but only to a limited extent. Weight loss will be followed by exposure to the sun and harmful ultraviolet rays, which are harmful to the body. Prolonged exposure to these rays increases the risk of skin cancer.

Sunscreen protects against the effects of these harmful rays to some extent. But, apart from this, it is better to cover your whole body when you go out in the sun. Wear sunglasses and darker clothing to protect your eyes from these harmful rays.

Donate unused computing power to IBM to find a cure for corona and cancer

Donate unused computing power to IBM to find a cure for corona and cancer

Agency. Saver Thompson was 12 years old when he found his father at his home in Washington DC. Saver immediately called an ambulance and his father Brett was taken to hospital.

Her father was diagnosed with brain cancer. After years of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, Brett's cancer subsided. But Sawyer was determined to do something about the fight against cancer. He turned to technology to make a difference in this fight.

Like other child investigators, Sawyer built his own computer at the age of nine. He started a business called Zoya, which worked on machine building for the locals.

His business also gained a lot of fame on the internet. A Google search for "how to help cure cancer" turned up the IBM World Community Grid app. It helped Sawyer make a difference in the fight against cancer at home.

The IBM World Community Grid app uses volunteer computing. That is, it is a form of distributed computing, where people donate resources to a research project that is not used by their computer.

Even if you don't use this app, your computer, phone, or tablet is running virtual experiments in the background. Using a laboratory computer can be a costly test, and it can involve many errors. With this crowdsourcing method, anyone can participate in this kind of important research without money, without time and without expertise.

"I've always wanted to help people with computers," says Sawer. That's great. "

Many people are trapped indoors during the Kovid 19 epidemic. In such a situation, it is not easy to find a way to help voluntarily without physical presence and financial support. But volunteer computing initiatives such as World Community Grid are providing this opportunity.

Last year, Saver launched a website called Help Saver Fight Cancer. Through the website, he was sharing his father's story, urging people to sign up for his app. Meanwhile, she aims to receive a 100-year donation of cancer research processing before her father's birthday in September.

Another team of two users, the Old Champ from the UK and the Little Mermaid from Copenhagen, came to participate in the project. After coordinating with those teams, 80 people from around the world joined his campaign. Which helped him achieve his 100-year goal within a few months.

As soon as Old Champ was diagnosed with his own cancer, 14-year-old Sawer decided to increase his 100-year goal to 1,000 years.

‘I changed my goal not only for my father but for those old champs and many others who unexpectedly joined the journey,’ said Saver, ‘it was unprecedented. At first, I didn't think I could achieve the 100-year goal. But look, today we are on a journey of a thousand years. '

Saver Thompson (right). He donated his unused computing power through IBM's Community Grid app for brain cancer research after his father was diagnosed with brain cancer. Photo: Thompson family
The team's computer has already done about a million calculations. Which are more than 450 years of computing? "Other research donations need money," says Sawer. But it is 100% free and does not require any force. '

Volunteer computing has been in practice since 1990. Educational and research organizations have been conducting such activities. IBM began operating the World Community Grid in 2004 as part of its social responsibility program.

The app currently has 785,000 volunteers. Who can donate their unused computing power to any of the seven projects focused on the health sector?

‘The World Community Grid is a method of crowdsourcing for a major scientific problem. It enlists the help of volunteers to address challenges in the areas of health and environmental research, ”said Juan Hindo, IBM Corporate Social Responsibility Manager and leader of the World Community Grid Team.

The Mapping Cancer Marker Project identifies cancer indicators and studies on how to focus the treatment plan on the individual. Researchers have millions of different tissue samples.

Researchers have found tissue samples from healthy people, from various types of cancer to people who have died and people who are still struggling with the disease.

‘They are collecting extensive data to compare genetic profiles to detect cancer factors,’ says Hindi. Processing these millions of data requires a lot of computing power. This is when volunteers are needed.

‘Instead of inventing supercomputers or raising funds for computing capabilities, researchers have given us millions of calories.

They provide collaborations and we distribute them to our community of volunteers, "she said." Those volunteers are neither scientific nor technical. They don't need any skills or expertise to solve this problem. '

After installing the app on Volunteer's computer or Android device, when the user's device is not in full use, calculations are being made.

‘We operate it in our volunteer community through crowdsourcing. In a short time, researchers can complete it. The volunteers are very happy to be a part of this scientific process. '

If you also want to participate in this World Community Grid, you can do so through IBM's website. All you have to do is enter an email address and create a password.

Then you can choose which active project you want to put your computing power in. Then download the app to your computer or Android device.
