That would make too much sense and provide too much transparency, now
wouldn't it? Perhaps we should all start a letter writing campaign to
the new administration and be sure to use the word transparency. Now
THAT would definitely lead to a visible CHANGE in everything, wouldn't it?

I see those results in practice almost every day. Look at the CNN
quickvote for a week or so and you can see the presentation issue
clearly. Since CNN is liberal they present liberally minded stories,
and often the quickvote doesn't even have a conservative answer as a
choice. It's definitely not scientific, and I think most polls are like

That is a really interesting disease concept, Wen. I like it, but I'd
bet that others here don't...that concept seemingly has the potential to
remove some personal responsibility, doesn't it?
Intuitively, I believe that some cancers are caused by viri, too. A
virus is just a weird 'life' form...it behaves like a life form in some
ways, like a non-life form in other ways. Many are extremophiles, and
the way they 'reproduce' is totally alien to the rest of life on the
planet. It is too cool. I do believe that environmental toxins are
also a big culprit for causing cancer. Whether we eat them or breathe
them or absorb them through our skin, I believe that at a minimum they
damage our organs to the point that it makes us more susceptible to
cancer, and worse, possibly switches on genes to make future generations
more susceptible. That is my personal belief, however. Did you ever
notice that there can be as much variation in scientific 'belief'
(acceptance of theories) as in religious beliefs?

Exactly. I am working on another health post about taking statins...I
got my bloodwork back..not great news, but workable.
