Kari - My name is Kari Vierimaa and I am a grade 11 student at Lockerby Composite School in Sudbury, Ontario. I was born July 11, 1991 in Timmins, Ontario. I moved to Sudbury at age four and began elementary school at Levack Public School. In grade 2 I had the opportunity to skip the third grade, and I did so. In grade 8 I was accepted into the Science and Technology Education Program at Lockerby Composite School. I am studying in the STEP French Immersion program. My interests include: languages, science, politics, geography, history and travel. Over the last two years i've had the chance to experience travelling to China, Spain, Morocco and most recently New York City. At school I'm the assistant editor of the yearbook and student chair of the Open House Comittee. I love sports, I love to run, play tennis, swim, curl, bike, play soccer and ski among others. I would like to take a Political Science/Biochemistry double major in University and eventually get into an MD/PhD program, where i can do both research and practice medicine and later on in life go into Medical Journalism and perhaps politics.
Monique - Hello all; My name is Monique House. I am a grade 11 student at Lockerby Composite School in Sudbury Ontario. I am involved in alot of activities at my school. Currently I am on the rowing team, and track team, and am waiting for baseball to begin sometime in May. Sports are a big part of my life. Other than sports i concentrate alot on school. I have a very hard semester so I have become very well at managing my time. My classes include University math, University chemistry, Medical biology, and health and personal services technology. I enjoy helping out my community as much as possible, and find myself participating in many activities. For instance I have raised money for 2 years for cancer with our school which we like to call out cancer drive that you have probably heard of. Beside that, on June 1, 2007 I will be participating in Relay for life, and on June 10, 2007 I will be joining my friend in a walk and fundraiser for Crohn’s disease. After I am finished high school, I plan to either go into the medical field or, child psychology.

Abstract:MCF 7 cells were cultured and treated with multiple doses of Paclitaxel. Also added were Flax Seed, Vitamins C and Vitamin E. At 8 X 10-9 M, 2 X 10-7 M & 10-6 M doses of Taxol with Flax Seed, results showed a statistical difference in comparison to a treatment of Taxol. This shows that Flax Seed is effective in the treatment of Breast Cancer.
