For All Our Canadian Friends......


Recommended Posts

This was posted on another board, so I wanted to pass along the info.

heard on CBC Radio One this morning, Monday, July 5, that CBC Radio One is to run a series of information pieces on their news programs, especially News at Six (in the evening) on lung cancer during this week.

They say that it causes more deaths than the more popular (and supported) breast, prostate and colon cancer combined.

But, due quite likely largely to the fact that a substantial portion of it is the result of smoking, it is largely ignored ... and people who get it are more apologetic about it, whether they'd been smokers or not.

Not only that ... it goes unrecognized, often, until it has progressed so far as to be difficult or impossible to treat successfully.

They are, despite the stigma, finding better ways of both diagnosing and treating it ... though it has received much smaller support than that that's been given to the other types.

Keep your mind open to new things, folks: it's a poor day that one doesn't learn something ... (of at least some value, one could hope!).
