ACS: Iowa Falls Short in Cancer Fight
 
01:59
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - When Gary Streit began volunteering for the American Cancer Society in the 70's, he didn't realize how personal his work would become. My sister got a breast cancer diagnosis, and I remember going up to my nephew's high school graduation and my niece was like 6 at the time, and she was looking at her Mom with a turban and no hair and I thought, 'you can do little bit more than you're doing.' Years later, he's doing much more: on a mission to save lives. 50 percent or more of cancers are preventable, Streit tells us. Thursday, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network released its annual report. Iowa scored well on just 3 of the 9 areas ranked. We asked what Streit what he thought about that. It's kind of a mediocre report, he tells us. The report uses a color-coded system. Green is good. We got high marks for smoke-free laws, pain policy and increased access to Medicaid, which Streit says is imperative for cancer patients. One of the greatest predictors of a person's ability to get treated well and get covered for cancer is access to quality healthcare, he explains. But the state failed in more areas, than it succeeded. We get bad marks for tobacco control funding. Streit says the CDC recommends the budget for Iowas tobacco control funding be about 31 million dollars. The actual budget about a sixth of that, he says, at 5.2 million. Streit says the last time Iowa raised the tobacco tax was in 2007, but while neighboring states continued to raise it, Iowa's stood still. So we went from being one of the top cigarette tax states in the country to now 26th or 27th. Then there's tanning - the number one cause of melanoma - which is the fastest-growing type of cancer. Streit believes it's time for age restrictions, whether parents like it or not. Parents can't decide when their kids get drivers licenses, parents can't decide how fast their kids drive, parents can't decide when their kids go to school or not, so why is this any different? he asks. This report is his new mission today. Hes breaking it all down, teaching all of us, so we can tell our lawmakers where we need to put the money, to help prevent cancer in the first place. We get all exercised about speed limits and traffic laws. You know, 350 people a year die of car accidents in the state of Iowa. 6400 people die of cancer, Streit says, adding And we can prevent half of those, if we just take the right legislative steps. Nationally, the report finds that only three states meet six out of the nine benchmarks measured. No state received a green rating in every category. You can find the full report at acscan.org/measure.

Cedar Point Sets Two World Records

Cedar Point is known for breaking records with their sky scraping roller coasters, but yesterday, two different kinds of records were broken by guests at the park.Cedar Point sets Guinness World Record for most people bouncing beach balls at the same time. Representatives from Guinness World Record were on hand as park guests succeeded in setting two new world records in beach ball bouncing and sunscreen application. First, 401 guests were able to bounce beach balls for 10 seconds to establish a world record for the most people bouncing beach balls at the same time, a new category for the famous world record keepers. After establishing the beach ball record, the sun was shining and temperatures were around 80 degrees as 681 guests put on sunscreen at the same time, breaking the record set over a month ago in Ostend, Belgium, on June 25. The two events were certified by an official adjudicator for Guinness World Records, Philip Robertson. "Guinness world records is one of those institutions that everyone wants to take part in," Robertson said. "It's fun, entertaining, ordinary people doing extraordinary types of things."The events took place around 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning. Participants in the two record attempts were able to purchase discounted tickets, and portions of those ticket sales will be given to the American Cancer Society, according to Robin Innes, director of public relations for Cedar Point. "Cedar Point is well-known for record-breaking coasters. Now, our guests can help us set other records at the park," Innes said prior to the events. "Plus, the money goes for a good cause, the American Cancer Society. So, it's a win-win for everybody."

The irony of his cancer diagnosis is not lost on Tim Martinek. He's an avid bicycle rider and his love of cycling sparked his interest in following Lance Armstrong's career through the years. And like Armstrong, Martinek is a testicular cancer survivor. Martinek initially shrugged off his testicular cancer symptoms." "I kinda wrote it off to maybe it was something - i had been training for the JDRF ride to cure diabetes and i had been doing quite a bit of bike riding, " said Martinick. A visit the urologist confirmed his testicular cancer diagnosis. "The most common sign is a painful or hard lump the patient can feel," said Dr. Tom Richardson, Physicians' Clinic of Iowa, urology. Testicular cancer is most commonly diagnosed in men between the ages of 15 and 35. When found early it's highly curable. "I recommend a child be taught by his father or father-figure in his life how to perform a self-exam once a month," said Dr. Richardson. Today he is cancer-free. "Don't mess around with your health if you find something suspicious -- see your doctor -- it may be nothing or it might be something you're better getting treated sooner rather than later," said Martinek.

What are the benefits of 3D Mammograms
 
01:01
Dr. Arnold Honick, UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Breast and Bone medical director talks about 3D mammograms in this educational video. • What is a mammogram and when should women get one? A mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast that is used to detect and evaluate breast changes. The American Cancer society recommends: Annual mammograms for women starting at age 40. • What is a 3D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis) exam? 3D mammography is much like your annual mammogram but far more accurate in earlier breast cancer detection. 3D works by capturing multiple slices (images) of your breast from several angles. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter slices. Radiologists can review the data, one slice at a time, like turning pages in a book, making it easier for them to see if there is anything to be concerned about. • What are the benefits of 3D mammography? With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all of the overlapped tissues of the breast in one flat 2D image. This can, in some instances, give the illusion of an abnormality even though the breast is normal, and can also mask an actual tumor due to superimposed breast structures. • By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more accurate assessment. 3D mammography provides a 25 percent improvement in overall cancer detection rates, finding 40 percent more invasive cancers than conventional mammography. It also means there is less chance of you being called back for a "second look" mammogram because of overlapped normal structures. The "false positive" rates are reduced by up to 40 percent. • What should I expect during the 3D mammography exam? 3D mammography complements the standard 2D exam and is performed at the same time, with the same system. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. • Who can have a 3D mammography exam? It is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram, for both screening and diagnostic exams.

Picture Perfect: Iowa in the 1940s

During the late 1930s and early 40s, Everett Kuntz snapped hundreds of photos documenting everyday life in and around his hometown of Ridgeway, Iowa. But it wasn't until learning he had cancer in 2002 that Kuntz finally printed the photos. Immediately, he noticed how the images preserved a time thought to be lost forever...a time when America was still emerging from the Great Depression and rapidly approaching World War II. Yet the photos depict a sense of hope in the people of Ridgeway -- an innocence that epitomized the calm before the storm. Kuntz's photographs show the faces, fields and porches of small-town America, and serve as a historical record of both a bygone era and a rural Iowa that has all but disappeared.

Cigarettes are a good attention. People come in just to buy cigarettes which will bring out our other products in our store,‚ said owner Thomas Shaheen, owner of ThingsNThings.Which is why he thinks CVS is making a mistake by opting to no longer sell tobacco products.I don't understand why they are doing it. They are going to lose a lot and lot and lot of sales because of not carrying it,‚ said Shaheen.Some echo the same idea.They are probably going to lose some money from it but that's their choice if they want to help people be healthier that's their choice,‚ said smoker Hailey Vanamburg.That's the point the health factor behind this move is why Dr. Pramod Dwivedi Health Director of Linn County public health supports it.Tobacco in my mind is a deathly product although it is legal,‚ said Dwivedi.According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco use is responsible for nearly one in five deaths, or about 443,000 early deaths each year.In Iowa itself annually about 4,500 people die each year,‚ said Dwivedi.Dwivedi says changes like this, from a national pharmacy company, is good for the nation.As for Shaheen, he says it's good for ThingsNThings too.People smoke there are going to get them someplace,‚ said Shaheen.You will still see cigarettes and tobacco products on the shelves at CVS Caremark.The change doesn't take effect until about eight months from now, on October 1st.

They are going to lose a lot and lot and lot of sales because of not carrying it,‚ said Shaheen.Some echo the same idea.They are probably going to lose some money from it but that's their choice if they want to help people be healthier that's their choice,‚ said smoker Hailey Vanamburg.That's the point the health factor behind this move is why Dr. Pramod Dwivedi Health Director of Linn County public health supports it.Tobacco in my mind is a deathly product although it is legal,‚ said Dwivedi.According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco use is responsible for nearly one in five deaths, or about 443,000 early deaths each year.In Iowa itself annually about 4,500 people die each year,‚ said Dwivedi.Dwivedi says changes like this, from a national pharmacy company, is good for the nation.As for Shaheen, he says it's good for ThingsNThings too.People smoke there are going to get them someplace,‚ said Shaheen.You will still see cigarettes and tobacco products on the shelves at CVS Caremark.The change doesn't take effect until about eight months from now, on October 1st.
