I've known a few people who've had ovarian cancer. I understand that
being fat, not eating vegetables, and smoking raise your odds of
getting the disease, but these women were slim, in fairly good shape,
and had never smoked. I don't know about their vegetable consumption.
The one who was in very good shape is still alive, twenty years after
diagnosis (she was 40 when the cancer was found).
