A combination of pictures shows Alexandra Munoz, 5, who lost her hair due to chemotherapy for a brain tumour, posing for a photograph without (L) and with a natural hair wig (R), which she received as a donation from hair stylist Marcelo Avatte in the cancer ward of the Luis Calvo Mackenna Hospital in Santiago, October 30, 2014. The wigs, handmade by Italian-Chilean hair stylist Marcelo Avatte and his team, have helped the children regain their self-esteem and confidence during cancer treatment. Renowned for making customised wigs, Avatte has donated more than 300 wigs since 2009 and says he was motivated to begin the project by the pain he felt when his own son lost his hair during chemotherapy.

Petra Albrecht, employee of the German Eurofins Scientific BSE-Test GmbH observe brainparts, extracted from cowheads prior to BSE tests in Garching near Munich, November 22, 2000. EU farm ministers agreed at a meeting in Brussels to extend cattle testing to all cattle at risk aged over 30 months. This could be expanded to all cattle destined for the food chain over that age. BSE can cause the deadly Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease in humans via the food chain.
