One in six American men is at lifetime risk of prostate cancer. If a close relative has prostate cancer, a man's risk of the disease more than doubles. With two relatives, his risk increases fivefold. With three close relatives, his risk is about 97%.
In the next 24 hours, prostate cancer will claim the lives of over 80 American men.
The first question that happened to be asked of Joycelyn Elders at this United Nations World AIDS Day Conference: "...if masturbation might be taught as a way to prevent AIDS?"

Joycelyn Elders was fired by President Clinton one week later
for "values contrary to the administration."
