If I tied you to a railway track and told you there was a 50% chance of a train coming along at some point, would that get your attention?
The reality is roughly half the people reading this will get cancer at some point in their life.
Some of these instances will be virtually unavoidable (genetics is a rotter). Some will be avoidable, though.
Please don’t be all Jeremy Clarkson about it and think the scientists will figure it out. Yes, they are making progress, but there is no guarantee they will crack it in your lifetime. Do what you can to protect yourself.
You’re important. So please don’t tie yourself to the railway track. If the train comes, the mess is awful.
Do what you can to avoid being on the railway tracks:
- food (tip: eat more garlic—not just good for vampire control)
- stress management
- clean environment
Please look after yourself.
