TO­DAY A DI­AG­NO­SIS OF CANCER is sel­dom as dire as it was even 15 years ago. Ad­vances in treat­ment are be­ing made all the time and screen­ing meth­ods for dif­fer­ent can­cers—early enough to make a big dif­fer­ence in a pa­tient’s out­come—are con­stantly be­ing re­fined.

This is true of colon cancer—the sec­ond-most di­ag­nosed cancer across Europe af­ter breast cancer. If caught early enough through a va­ri­ety of screen­ings, this dis­ease is preventable. Don’t miss this month’s “The Screen­ing Test You Must Have.”

And it seems there’s new in­for­ma­tion just about ev­ery day about our di­ets and what sup­ple­ments are im­por­tant for us to take. In “How Much Is Enough” we pro­vide a guide to the most im­por­tant vi­ta­min sup­ple­ments you should take, why and how much.

For Uroš Mac­erl, be­ing able to breathe clean air was a ba­sic right—but it didn’t seem to be so in his na­tive Slove­nia. The farmer ral­lied his coun­try­men and took on the gi­ant ce­ment pro­ducer and pol­luter La­farge Ce­ment—and won. For his un­stint­ing ded­i­ca­tion and courage, Mar­cel was awarded the cov­eted Gold­man En­vi­ron­men­tal Prize. “Tak­ing on Dirty Busi­ness,” tells his in­spir­ing story.

Don’t miss th­ese and other good-news sto­ries in this Septem­ber is­sue—chock full of a va­ri­ety of fea­tures and shorter ar­ti­cles to en­ter­tain, ed­u­cate and inspire you.
