Two recent videotapes from Lange Productions deal with breast health. The New B. S. E. and Quality Mammography Can Save Your Life are each about 8 minutes long and pack quite a bit of information into that time. They are visually attractive, move at a good pace, and have a pleasant voice presenting the material. Both tapes emphasize the three-pronged approach to breast cancer detection, which consists of breast self-examination, physician examination of the breasts, and mammography.
