Free Colorectal Cancer Test Kits Available Until the End of April; Supports National Cancer Awareness Month

Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Biomerica, Inc.

    WHO:  Biomerica, Inc. of Newport Beach, CA., manufacturer of diagnostic
 products for early detection of major diseases.
 
     WHAT:  Biomerica is giving EZ Detect(R), a Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT),
 away free as a public service during National Cancer Awareness Month in April
 2001.
     Simple and sanitary, the 2-minute EZ Detect test identifies hidden
 (occult) blood in stool, an early warning sign of colorectal cancer.  EZ
 Detect requires no handling of stool, no laboratory processing, and has no
 dietary restrictions -- significantly improving odds of screening compliance.
     The U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention recently released a
 study of 46,000 people showing that those who use an annual FOBT have
 33 percent fewer colon cancer deaths than people who do not take the test.
 Caught early, colorectal cancer is 90 percent curable.  Unfortunately, only
 37 percent of all colorectal cancers are detected at the earlier stages.
 
     WHERE & WHEN:  During the last ten days of APRIL 2001, EZ Detect kits will
 be available free, with payment of a shipping and handling charge, at
 http://www.ezdetect.com.  All your readers need to do is enter the promotion
 code:  2001.  The kits will also be available at chain drug stores throughout
 the United States for about $8 to $11 dollars.  (Locations available on the
 web site www.ezdetect.com )
 
     WHY:  A public service from Biomerica because screening with fecal occult
 blood tests can save as many as 30,000 lives in America this year.
