Golden Triangle residents to take part in Cancer Prevention Study

BEAUMONT - by Lauren Huet

Southeast Texans could play a role in helping to prevent cancer. The American Cancer Society is launching their first cancer prevention study in 20 years. More than 300,000 Americans will take part, 1,000 of which will come from the Golden Triangle.

Past cancer prevention studies prove a link between smoking and cancer. They also reveal how diet and exercise affect a person's risk of getting cancer.

Today, The American Cancer Society introduced Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3) in Beaumont. During a meeting in front of City Hall, the CPS-3 Event Chair, Gay-Lynne Jones, encouraged people in the Golden Triangle to join the study and leave a legacy.

"It is one of the few studies where residents of the Golden Triangle have an opportunity to be able to participate," said Jones, "and it is going to be able to show us what the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic links are to cancer. And so it's really going to shape the future of cancer control."

To take part, you must be between the ages of 30 and 65 and never been diagnosed with cancer. The American Cancer Society will send periodic questionnaires and yearly newsletters to participants.
