    We're surrounded by chemicals that are carcinogenic. Food, air, water.


    You sound so intelligent, and conversant in cancer issues. Yet you didn't mention chemicals. Maybe it was simple oversight, and you're familiar with it, I dunno.

    There's a chemical stew we're living in now, and it's very new for humans. All this stuff has been invented in a few decades. The exposure rates going on now are unprecedented.

    And speaking of unprecedented... all of this discussion of cancer, health care, screenings, chemicals -- all of it pales compared to global warming, our group trashing of the fragile environment that supports us all.

    Without a suitable ecosystem, we humans are not going to survive as a species, and are certainly not going to have time for high-level discussions like this one.
