Taking care of cancer — 8 Comments

  1. Dear Grandad Brilliant idea: pay smokers to smoke to see how long it takes them to develop cancer. I am sure many would be happy to participate in that experiment.DP

    • I’m up for that.  In fact, all they have to do is supply me with my baccy [and fags for Herself] and I’ll do the rest.

      P.S.  I don’t now how or why but you ended up in my bin.  Did you manage to delete yourself?

  2. “While it puts this largely down to an aging population, the plan will also stress that as much as 40 per cent of cancer cases can be avoided. “

    The above sentence makes absolutely no sense for the simple (rather obvious) reason that cancer is an equal opportunity killer. It doesn’t care what age you are or whether you smoke or not. It doesn’t care if you drink or don’t drink or care what you eat. It doesn’t even care if you obtained a PhD when you were all of 19 years old. If cancer wants you it gets you.

    And I tried to italicize the quoted sentence in my comment but the buttons, while they show up okay, are not functioning. Clicking on them does nothing. Just thought you might want to know.

    • If you go through life avoiding anything and everything that may harm you, you might as well not be born.

      Clicking on them does nothing.”  Bugger!  Though it works for me?  Just thought you might want to know?

      • FUCK!  It’s the old problem back again – buttons don’t work in a comment but do work in a reply.  And now I can’t remember how I fixed it before……….

        • You said it was another plugin that was the culprit. I thought it might be the “Subscribe to comment” check box thingy that only shows up once in a great while. Usually when the buttons don’t appear at all (like for this comment–the check box is there but no markup buttons). Just a thought.

  3. There does seem to be a daft idea floating around society that if you avoid this and avoid that, somehow you won’t die at all…….so you live to 312 and then what? Look forward to the next 200 years? 

    • I would love to pose that question to a Nanny – You don’t want me to die from smoking/drinking/eating/whatever so what do you want me to die from?

      Personally I am quite happy to go when my time is up.  The thought of hanging around this world for the next hundred years would be enough to give me a stroke.  God knows the world is getting more miserable by the day so I just don’t want to be around to see the final collapse of civilisation.
