I’m curious as to how much research has been conducted on some of these things. I’m left handed, eat barbequed meat, eat bread, take the train to school and many of those other things, but I haven’t died of cancer yet. I’d say what they’ve done is get some people who have cancer, asked them questions about their life and said these are possible things that have caused your cancer. But I don’t get how global warming can cause cancer.

Let me know when you hit menopause.  But not when you start/have started wearing tight bras or shaving under your arms.

Ethnic beliefs can cause stress (especially if you’re arguing with someone over them)
and stress can probably cause cancer everthing else seems to


Edit: Yep, it’s on the list

My mom always said that she thinks everyone gets cancer of one sort or another if they live long enough.

I take a lot of risks, so I probably won’t live long enough to die.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsibility to disprove your claims, but rather your responsibility to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.
