Each year, almost five-thousand American women die of cervical cancer.
Now, a panel of experts says virtually all the deaths can be prevented by routine Pap smears and by safe sex.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


The National Institutes of Health found that about half of the women diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States have never had a Pap test.
Properly performed, the test can detect abnormal cells before they become cancerous.
The N-I-H also says virtually all cervical cancers are related to infection by a sexually-transmitted disease known as H-P-V-- which can be prevented by the use of condoms.

The mobile unit is a joint effort between the New River and Mount Rogers Health Districts and several hospitals.

Appointments may be made through local health departments, the unit visits each county in the service region about once a month.
It also travels to industries which arrange on- site screenings to assist in early detection and prevent lost productivity.

Too much of a good thing, even against the likes of lice, can be a dangerous thing.

While the drug works well when used as directed-- apparently some parents get overzealous with it.
Lindane can cause nerve damage, especially in babies.
The F-D-A says the treatment shouldn't be used at all unless other, less risky, lice medicines fail to work.
The official alert follows a consumer group's effort to ban Lindane outright.

The shot plates Kevin Foster and gets Chicago within one run at 3-to-2.
Then in the fourth the Cubs would blow the game wide open with seven runs.
