24. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 3 - January 9, 1997 Reduce your cancer risk rate: Celel)]';l delicious foods and good health m 1'.)' '7 Every month of the year brings holidays and celebrations, and they can all be occasions to enjoy the delicious taste and helpful "benefits of nutritious foods. "Here's to Your Health," the bright and colorful 1997 wall cal- endar from the American Institute for Cancer Research, offers dozens of clever ideas for whole- some treats that are suitable for special days throughout the year. Valentine's Day is a perfect time to replace high-fat choco- lates with delicious but lower fat biscotti, ginger snaps and other assorted cookies combined in a decorative tin, or give a basket of passion fruits, mixed with other exotic types, wrapped with red cellophane and ribbon. St. Patrick's Day cannot only mean wearin' o' the green but eat- ing of it as well, with a smorgas- bord of green springtime vegeta- bles, such as a delicious salad of Belgian endive, chicory, raddic- chio and arugula and watercress, topped with a bit of low-fat dress- ing that uses a light vinaigrette of tarragon-flavored vinegar and walnut oil. Summer picnics can be perked up-for special guests with deli- cious sandwich combinations like Greek salad baguettes and Orien- tal chicken salad, provided in cal- endar recipes. Festive dip recipes for holidays range from curried apple spread and white bean dip to pear puree and carrot dip. Afternoon tea can be a birthday event for a loved one: you'll find ideas for 10w-fat fruit breads and healthy finger foods to accompa- ny tea. The calendar also offers tips for outdoor fun and fitness, plus tips on how to dance your way to bet- ter health. Each month'.s good health hints are highlighted by a colorful illus- tration by artist Chris Stephens. Copies of the 1997 "Here's to Your Health" calendar are avail- able for $5 each.

DE 302-539-4599 J What is melanoma? Melanoma is a form of skin cancer, which can be deadly if not properly treated. If detected early, it can be successfully treated. If diagnosis is delayed, there is a risk of spread to the lymph nodes and vital organs. Often the first sign of melanoma is a change in the size, shape or color of a mole. Thinking of ABCD can help you remember what to look for: A - Asymmetry. The shape of one half of a mole doesn't match the other half. B - Border. The edges are ragged, notched or blurred. C - Color. The color is uneven. Shades of black, brown, grey, tan, or even white, red or blue may be present D - Diameter. There is a change in the size of a mole. Other signs include ulceration, bleeding and itching of a mole. Check your skin regularly and if you detect may irregularities, see your doctor.
