Declining Mammogram Statistics Cause for Concern; This Week on Your Cancer Today™

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 8, 2007 -- Your Cancer Today™ is a 30-minute television talk show, dedicated to inform and educate viewers from both the institutional and patients' perspectives.

On this week's episode, we discuss the importance of regular mammogram screening for women over the age of 40 and hear about some rather alarming statistics just recently released. There may be as many as 8,000 women over 40 in the USA alone who have breast cancer and be completely unaware of it.

We also explore an article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, citing findings by researchers in Taiwan, where a test is believed to have been developed to determine what patients may benefit from chemotherapy for lung cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, primarily because most incidences are diagnosed after the cancer has already spread.

Your Cancer Today™ Producer Alan Painter is a Director of NanoLife Sciences, Inc., developers of Proton Treatment Centers. "This is a much needed show," Painter says, "and way overdue. Information is the key to fighting cancer and the more we can spread the word, the better it will be for everyone." Donald Baillargeon, Executive Producer and Host of MoneyTV, which has been running since 1996 in 125 million homes globally, is also the Host and Executive Producer of Your Cancer Today™. Your Cancer Today™ is seen throughout the United States on broadcast, cable and satellite television as well as in Western Europe. A full channel lineup is available at the company web site,, which allows online viewing of past episodes on demand and is under construction for the provision of further information and investigation of various cancer treatments, alternatives and research being conducted.
