Date:12/26/2007

WASHINGTON, Dec. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26: THE BODY'S SECRETS UNLOCKED

Profile America -- Wednesday, December 26th. One of the most important scientific efforts in history was announced in December eight years ago, the mapping of the first human chromosome. Since then, all 23 pairs of chromosomes found in human cells have been blueprinted, allowing researchers to study the genes they contain. This physical map has identified about 100 disease carrying genes. Attention is now focused on the role genes play in diseases that have a complex pattern of inheritance, such as diabetes, asthma, mental illness and cancer. Cancer alone claims the lives of more than 556,000 Americans each year about 30 percent of victims are between 75 and 84 years old. You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at http://www.census.gov/.

Profile America is produced by the Public Information Office of the U.S. Census Bureau. These daily features are available as produced segments ready to air on a monthly CD or on Internet at http://www.census.gov (look under the "Newsroom" button).
