    Default Eddie Van Halen blames guitar picks for giving him tongue cancer

    Eddie Van Halen blames guitar picks for giving him tongue cancer

    http://www.nme.com/news/van-halen/86322

    By Luke Morgan Britton, 19th June 2015

    Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen has spoken in a new interview about his cancer scare a decade ago.

    The musician was treated for tongue cancer in 2000, resulting in surgery which removed a third of his tongue. He was declared cancer-free in 2002.

    Now, speaking to Billboard, Van Halen revealed that he's given up smoking cigarettes but blames guitar picks for his cancer diagnosis.


    "I used metal picks - theyíre brass and copper - which I always held in my mouth, in the exact place where I got the tongue cancer," Van Halen said.

    "Plus, I basically live in a recording studio thatís filled with electromagnetic energy. So thatís one theory. I mean, I was smoking and doing a lot of drugs and a lot of everything. But at the same time, my lungs are totally clear. This is just my own theory. . ."

    Are there any Linkers in this field? Could this happen?

    The word 'theory' needs to be used about five more times in that paragraph.

    I'm sure the smoking of cigarettes like a chimney for 40 years had nothing to do with it.

    I've got a copper pick under my tongue right now... and only my prostate seems to be swollen.

    Whoa. If you've got a swollen prostate in your mouth, I'm taking leave.

    What about the McCain Laboratory (sp?) that Ed supposedly co-founded, and did the "research" with?
