    Nice shirt.

    Odds that I'm going to get cancer are 50%? They must count men, then count all cases of cancer among men including those with recurrent cases. There's no way in hell 50% of the men in my building are going to have cancer in their lifetime.

    I wondered the same thing, but if your lucky to live long enough.... eventually some kind of cancer may become part of your life.

    I wonder if you take away all of the cigarette smokers, if it would still be 50%. I say no.

    A little googling (I know, not scientific), says basically 1 out of 5 men smoke. That should be considered in the 1 in 5. (Sorry all you smokers out there)

    I'm thinking maybe 1 in 3 would get cancer at the most, but that would consider rare cancers that are cured by removing a mole, etc.

    I would also be interested in hearing how many get cancer before they are 70 years old, or even 80. 1 out of 10? 1 out of 20? At some point we all die of something.

    I guess what we need to know is how many men of working age (age 22-60) get a cancer that will kill them. What would that be?

    We all know folks who have had cancer, and died. But I've met tons of people in my life, and I can only think of maybe 5 people (and relatives of acquaintenances) that got cancer and died.

    I understand the commercial, I'm just saying that it is a little misleading.
    Right here I say....

    My brother in law had cancer and the oncologist told him, if you live long enough, you will have some form of cancer. The thought being that cancer is abnormal cell growth. Your body manufacturers billions and billions of cells over your life time and eventually, it will produce an abnormal cell that then multiplies. It explains why even "healthy" people get cancer or young children get it. It just depends on when and where you body produces the abnormal cells.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
