LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(Business Wire)--
Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation`s leading health and well-being
companies, recently announced the release of Trash Cancer For Dummies, the
fourth book to result from the partnership between Humana`s MyWell-Being and the
For Dummies® book series. 

Trash Cancer For Dummies is based on Fran Drescher`s Cancer Schmancer Movement,
which seeks to transform those with cancer from patients into medical consumers,
and to shift the nation`s priority from exclusively searching for a cancer cure
toward prevention and early detection of the disease. 

"We are very excited for the release of our fourth book in partnership with the
For Dummies series," said Bruce Feinstein, Marketing Director at Humana. "This
book really shows how making simple lifestyle changes can affect overall health
and well-being." 

The book features tips and advice from Fran Drescher and outlines ways to
prevent cancer and avoid certain risk factors. 

"Our home is the place where we spend the most time and is often our most toxic
environment. Understanding the dangers and being educated is the first step to
living an empowered lifestyle," said Drescher, President of Cancer Schmancer.
"Going to the market and shopping for everyday items will never be the same as
consumers become more educated and begin to think differently about the food,
personal care items and household products they`re bringing into their homes." 

Some important topics addressed in the book include:

* Nutrition basics and simple cancer-fighting recipes 
* Ways to protect your skin against the thousands of chemicals it is exposed to
on a regular basis 
* How to choose green housecleaning products that will ensure the safety and
health of one of the most toxic places: the home 
* Simple, everyday habits that are proven to reduce the risk of cancer and ways
to break bad habits in order to live a healthier lifestyle
