  • Cancer Deaths down..but obesity is up....coincidence?

    Just was sitting at my desk yesterday at work and heard about the decline of cancer cases in the US. Then i heard one about how obesity is still on the rise. So it got me thinking. Cancer is going down but obesity is going up, THAT'S it! The fatter people get the healthier they are and the less likely they are to have cancer. Not saying their heart kidneys or liver wont give out, but it wouldnt be from cancer.

    SO this thanksgiving and Christmas holiday eat lots, cause your cancer free body depends on it.




    Sorry if i offended anyone, not my intentions. Just was bored at work. (boss was gone)

    This was a commercial that was repeated over and over during NFL games on Thanksgiving. Want to read the ironic part? During the Halftime show of the Dallas Cowboys game, a band called the Jonas Brothers performed and a "rapper" by the name of big robert or fat robert came out.....and then right after the performance there was yet another commercial about obesity in America.

    There is no question that obesity is a huge problem in America....people have been getting fatter and fatter...there is no way american's are going to use small cars because we cant fit in them.....but then again Cadillac is introducing a hybrid escalade....perfect for the obese american who wants to help the earth while pick up fast food at a mcdonalds drive thru.

        I saw a thread somewhere saying PC game sales are also down. So, maybe, as people get fatter, they get healthier AND stop playing computer games.

          The PC game sales thread was necro-ed from 2005. Its not current news.

                I think we will be seeing in the future a scary relationship with obesity and certain types of Cancer.

                Is it just me, or is Cancer more common than it was in the early 80's? Is it just a eerie coincidence in which I have known a lot of people in the last 5 years that have been affected by it one way or another?

                  Cancer is so easily and quickly seen into days medicine. That in the 80s im sure far more people died from it, they just never knew what it was.

                    Believe it or not, a Harvard study released on April 17, 2007 shows that the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread!
