MYFOXNY.COM -

Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed legislation authorizing the funding of breast cancer mapping.

This will provide an opportunity to advance understanding of the geographic variations in cancer incidence in New York, according to sponsors.

The measure amends the 1997 law authorizing state health officials to solicit applications from public and private agencies for grants to support education and funding with a focus on the causes, prevention, screening treatment and cure of breast cancer.

    "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." That whopper nearly cost Bill Clinton his presidency. But most of our lies history ignores. And for that, reason humans everywhere will probably go right on telling them. Americans fib hundreds of millions of times every day, at an estimated 1.67 lies per person, according to a Michigan State study. But to fabricate a lie, our minds and bodies must work harder than they would to tell a truth they already know.
