The Health Show #1094

By http://www.healthshow.org/


Albany, NY – The C-D-C estimates that as many as 60% of the people who die from colo-rectal cancer could be saved if all men and women aged 50 years or older were routinely screened. Since March is national Colon Cancer Awareness Month...on this week's Health Show, we'll talk about the continuing progress in the detection and treatment of colon cancer.

Then we'll hear the story of a doctor who fought the system in China to warn about the dangers of HIV/AIDS...and dealt with the consequences from the government. And a writer from Boston tells us why he dreams of giving all those smokers he sees huddled outside buildings an assignment.
