by April Thompson 30 Minutes Could Save Your Breasts – Even Your Life


Thermography is a 30-minute, state-of-the-art, FDA-registered, painless, touch-free and radiation-free imaging technology. Thermography can help detect abnormalities long before they can be


detected by standard diagnostic tests. Our doctors are Board-Certifi ed in thermal scan analysis. Breast screening includes surrounding areas.


Beacon Thermography is now scheduling appointments at Health Touch, 3500 Westgate Drive, Suite 504, Durham. Call today for an appointment time convenient for you.


“T ermography will become the standard of care for breast health monitoring.”

creative solutions to conserve it. Accord- ing to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average American family uses some 300 gallons of water a day at home, nearly a third of which lands on lawns and yardscapes.

Te program pits cities against each


other every April to see which one can garner the most water-saving pledges from residents. Prizes for participants include a year’s worth of utility bills paid, green home cleaning kits and low-flow shower heads. It also provides immediate feedback on rankings at MyWaterPledge.com. As of May, 616,000 participants in 4,800 towns and cities had pledged to save 3 billion gallons per year. “Many are attracted by prizes, but over


time, become more interested in conser- vation and sustainability,” observes Creech.


“Social modeling is important because people get activated when they see friends and family involved. Surveys also show that we look to local leaders on issues like this, so it makes a difference when mayors take a stance.” Mesa, Arizona’s thirsty desert lawns
