For instance, many people find that as they age, their sl, in begins to show the appeara~ ~e of some pigmentation commonly known as "sun spots.; These "'spots" can increase in number as a person ages. Unfortunatel); what many peo- ple don't realize is that some of these sun spots may actually be actinic keratosis (AK), a skin con- dition that affects 58 million Americans and has the potential to progress to squamous cell carci- noma (SCC), the second-most- common skin cancer. The good news is an education effort is raising awareness about the problem and how to treat it. The campaign website can be found at www.SpotSignsofAK.com. Too Much Sun Can Be Risky AKs are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin that can range in color and vary in size. They are the result of years of cumulative sun damage and most often appear on parts of the body that are most exposed to sunlight, such as the face, scalp, ears, neck, hands and arms. AKs are most common in older adults who have spent a lot of time in the sun during their lives. However, even routine activities such as walking the dog or grabbing your mail can lead to sun damage. People who develop AKs typically will not develop just one. The condition will pre- sent in numerous "spots" or will continue to present intermit- tently over time. An Effort to Raise Awareness Dr. Ellen Marmur--a dermatol- ogist and cosmetic surgeon---is raising awareness about actinic ker~atosis by promoting the Spot Signs of AK campaign. The cam- Many people don't realize that the kin pigmentation known as "sun pot" may'actually be actinic ker- atosis (AK), a skin condition that affect 58 million American. paign is an initiative developed by DUSA Pharmaceuticals. Said Dr. Marmur, "Education around melanoma and other skin cancers has been very strong, but actinic keratosis remains rela- tively unknown." Early Detection Is Critical According to Dr. Marmur, approximately 5-10 percent of AKs develop into squamous cell carcinoma within an average of two years. Since there is no way to know ahead of time which ones will become cancerous, it is very important to seek a dermatolo- gist's care. Frequent skin exami- nations are the key to early detec- tion and prevention. The campaign website contains information on the condition and how to find a dermatologist, as well as information on the range of treatment options available. "People who get AKs typically do not get just one," said Dr. Marmur. "The years of sun damage affect entire regions of the skin. This is just further reason for adults who think they have AKs to speak with their dermatologist. And if you don't have a derm, find one." For more information on AKs or to find a dermatologist, visit www.SpotSignsofAK.com. Nonsurgical Healing For Bones That Won't Heal (NAPS)--Brokeh bones. It's without doubt that you, or some- one you know, has had a broken bone, also known as a fracture, during their lifetime. The actual time bones need to heal depends on a number of variables, includ- ing injury location, severity and patient risk factors such as smok- ing, diabetes, poor nutrition and some medications. In addition, a good blood supply, which delivers oxygen, nutrients and cells to the fracture~site, is critical to healing. Most fractures heal without a problem. On rare occasions, bones don't heal as expected; a fracture that fails to improve and requires additional treatment is called a "nonunion." Once diagnosed with a nonunion, a patient faces two choices: a surgical or nonsurgical A woman use EXOGEN to treat treatment.

Call Rick 466-1551 Crispy Juicy Deep-Fried Turkey (NAPS)--Want delicious, juicy turkey but don't want to spend all day in the kitchen? Deep-fry your turkey the authentic way...in 100 percent peanut oil! In half the time it takes to mast turkey in the oven, you can have moist and crispy turkey when you deep-f~y in peanut oil. This Southern delicacy is gaining popularity across the United States and is being enjoyed year- round at holidays, tailgates and barbecues. Peanut oil is one of the world's traditional deep-frying oils because it can reach such a high temperature--which keeps the outside of the food crispy and the inside very moist. Frying turkey in peanut oil seals in all the turkey's natural flavors and juices. Peanut oil has a pleasing nutty flavor and can safely be reused three or four times before it needs to be replaced. Peanut oil is also trans fat- free, cholesterol-free, low in satu- rated fats and high in good unsat- urated fats. Research shows that peanut oil is as heart healthy as olive oil but is better for cooking at very high temperatures. It is also fun to try basting your fried turkey with different flavors such as Cajun, barbecue, chorizo, or Hawaiian or apple brine. Start your own turkey frying tradition with this tasty recipe: Crispy and Juicy Deep-Fried Turkey Directions 1 whole turke}, 1 tablespoon of salt 1 teaspoon of black pepper 1 teaspoon of garlic powder 2 tablespoons of your favorite dry rub Deep-frying a turkey in peanut oil makes for a cripy outide and juicy inide. 3 to 4 gallons of 100% peanut oil (just enough to cover the turkey) Directions: 1. Wash bird inside and out and allow it to drain. 2. Rub turkey with the salt, pepper, garlic and dry rub. 3. Allow turkey to sit at room temperature for I hour or until completely thawed and dry. 4. Preheat peanut oil in an outdoor or countertop turkey fryer to 350 F. 5. Make sure there is no mois- ture on the skin and carefully lower turkey into hot oil either in a fryer basket or using a sturdy tool inserted into the chest cavity. Submerge the turkey completely. 6. Fry turkey for 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes per bird. Internal temperature should reach 165 F. 7. Remove turkey from the oil and let sit 20 minutes before serving.
