 by Alice MurrayDeKalb County residentsare seeing pink this October as local healthcare providersstress the need for screen-ing during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.At DeKalb Medical’snew Comprehensive BreastCenter at Hillandale, morethan 70 women took advan-tage of reduced-rate mam-mograms Oct. 6 during ascreening event. A grandopening for the facility isset for Oct. 28. Billed as a“Facing Your Fears” Hal-loween carnival, the Sundayafternoon event will providefamily fun such as play ar-eas and trick-or-treat activi-ties for children, tours of thenew breast center, healthand wellness information,and a chance to meet staff members.The 3-6 p.m. carnivalis free for the public, butguests must call (404) 501-WELL to register in ad-vance.The new breast center atHillandale was designed tomeet an increased demandfrom the community. Thecenter experienced a 20 per-cent increase in patient visitsover the past three years.More than twice thesize of the previous center,the new facility includes4,170 square feet of wait-ing, dressing, and procedurerooms convenient to free parking and physician of-
ces. The original space was
1,600 square feet.Dr.
Kenneth W. Harper
,chief of staff at DeKalbMedical Hillandale, citedthe importance of regular mammograms as he showedthe new space to visitors.“When cancers are diag-nosed early, treatment isgenerally more successful,”he said.All women should talk to their primary care doctor about their individual risk for the disease and deter-mine a screening schedulethat’s right for them, Harper said.“The more risk fac-tors you have, the moreimportant it is for you to be screened at appropriatetimes,” he said.Research indicates thatrisk factors for breast cancer include family history, dietand lack of exercise.The American Can-cer Society recommendsmaintaining a healthy bodyweight by eating a well- balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetablesand whole grains to staywell and limit cancer risk.The group also recom-mends that individuals limitthe amount of red meat theyconsume, especially high-fatand processed meats, and toexercise at least 30 minutes
a day ve or more days each
week.While the AmericaCancer Society guidelinescall for women to start an-nual mammograms at theage of 40, some women inhigh-risk groups may needto start screening earlier,Harper said.He cited research fromthe National Cancer Instituteshowing that White Ameri-can women have the high-est incidence rate for breastcancer, but Black womenare more likely to die fromthe disease.

I was fortunate enough to at-tend the grand opening of the newEdenPURE
factory in North Can-ton, Ohio. The new plant broughthundreds of new jobs back to Ohioand reversed the common practiceof sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE
continues to ramp up productionfor the coming Winter with excit-ing new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made inAmerica success story continues togrow.
American Labor, AmericanQuality
With over 3 million portableheaters sold EdenPURE
is thebest selling portable infrared heat-ing system in North America.However, like any classic, Eden-PURE
has dozens of would-becompetitors who create Asiancopies at low prices using cheap,foreign labor. Don’t be fooled bythese imitations. Look for theEdenPURE
logo and the Made inNorth Canton, Ohio stamp. Savelike millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” tocheap foreign imitators.
Save up to 49% on 2013 Eden-PURE

promise. EdenPURE

New, More Efficient Models
The engineers at EdenPURE
listened to their millions of cus-tomers and somehow managed toimprove the #1 portable heater inNorth America. Through old fash-ioned American ingenuity the newEdenPURE
line is more efficientto save you even more money.The EdenPURE
PersonalHeater now heats a larger area, anincrease from 350 square feet to500 square feet. That’s a 30% in-crease in efficiency! And Eden-PURE
is proud to introduce the2013 Model 750. The new Model750 is perfect for larger areas andheats up to 750 square feet. Butthe best thing about the Model 750is the price.

Super Safe Infrared Heat
Now remember, a major causeof residential fires in the UnitedStates is carelessness and faultyportable heaters. The choice of fireand safety professional, CaptainMike Hornby, the EdenPURE
hasno exposed heating elements thatcan cause a fire. And a redundanthome protection system that sim-ply shuts the EdenPURE
down if it senses danger. That’s whygrandparents and parents love theEdenPURE
.The outside of the EdenPURE
only gets warm to the touch so thatit will not burn children or pets.And your pet may be just like mydog who has reserved a favoritespot near the EdenPURE
