    Blessings be.  We need to get the carcinogens out of our environment.

      and thank you and hugs to you, dharmasyd.

      I kept envisioning over the last couple weeks, when you do your morning routine and it helped.

      When I read that 1 in  6 women will get breast cancer, it's more than genetics - don't you think?

      I had that discussion with a mammogram tech a few years ago and she agreed.
      It's environmental, even though genetics plays a big part.

      I've written this before that longevity is not a thing in my family.
      My dad died at 66 years old from cancer, and my mom died at 69 from a fatal heart attack and a brother died at 62.
      I used to always say that if I could live to 70 that I'd be happy to have outlived my parents, and it really scared me, and for the first time I was thinking - but I'm only 57 years old.

      My mother-in-law, she's going to be 89 this August, and believe me, she was wild in her youth and by youth, I mean into her 50s.
      I've always said that she will survive us all and after suffering a series of strokes, she's doing better than ever!
      My husband's family has the longevity gene - it's their Swedish background, I think.

      Thank you, dharmasyd, for being my friend.

      All we need is LOVE!
