Dealing With CancerStreaming Video - 2006
Cancer is currently the second leading cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease. In fact, 1 of every 4 fatalities in America is attributed to cancer, amounting to more than 1,500 deaths each day. After introducing the broad topic of cancer, this program narrows its focus to scrutinize breast, cervical, prostate, testicular, lung, and skin cancers. The symptoms of these cancers, as well as the steps that can be taken to minimize the risk of contracting them, are identified. Factors that appear to increase susceptibility, such as age, diet, gender, race, and personal behavior patterns, are considered as well.
