Critically acclaimed actor Laurence Fishburne is given high praise for his compelling performances throughout the decades. Now the ‘King of New York (1990)’ actor is using his talents as host for public television’s ‘In Depth’ with Laurence Fishburne. The informational program highlights a large variety of globally essential topics to inform its viewing audience. An upcoming episode is to feature an issue that impacts the lives of many women worldwide: breast cancer.
In the United States, breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer found in women. Statistically, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. This type of cancer occurs when DNA changes make normal healthy breast cells cancerous.
Risk factors include a family history of breast cancer, being overweight, and women of a Caucasian or African American ethnicity have a higher chance of developing the disease. Regular self-examinations are recommended for catching breast cancer early on, as well as regular breast cancer screenings for women age 40 and up.
Breast cancer is a scary experience for any woman, which is why increased awareness of the disease is crucial in prevention and saving lives. ‘In Depth’ will reveal more details about breast cancer awareness in the new episode. The segment is expected to be distributed during October, or Breast Cancer Awareness month.
‘In Depth’ with Laurence Fishburne is carefully inspected before broadcast. The informational TV segment has accepted numerous awards for its endeavors.
