CPS# is a national lifestyle study and Bowling Green has been asked to take part. The study is designed to take place over a 20 to 30 year span to see the long term affects of lifestyle choices. Studies just like this one have led scientists to monumental discoveries in the fight against cancer.
"The first CPS study was done in the 1950's and it led to the link between smoking and lung cancer. The second one was done in the 70's and 80's and it led to the link between obesity and a higher cancer rate. I think it's a great honor that they've chosen Bowling Green, Kentucky." said Angie Geron of the American Cancer Society.
You must be between the ages of 30 and 65 to participate in the study. The sign-up dates are between November 20-22 at Graves Gilbert Clinic.
