Okay, I will add electric lighting to the list of things that I did/used/ate
which caused me to get BC....At this point I can almost fill a book !

I needed a laugh tonight..thanks

Sara, I saw that and also the part where they said your birth weight might have something to do with it. Babies over 9 lbs. are at risk. I know the light bulb and a big baby clinch that theory. Could not be all the processed foods developed countries eat could it? Nope must be the light bulb. L&H Joyce

I was a 6 pound baby, so I guess I didn't get it from birth weight. Might be caused by the lighting or by the polluted air we breathe or by the hormones in long-ago taken birth control pills.
Next, they'll be blaming chocolate. The saddest thing is that they don't have a clue.
Time to make major changes to the brochure.

I weighed only 5# 10 oz, so the large baby theory is out for me too. I am sure it is the Diet Coke and tupperware that did it to me.

Hahaha. What'll they think of next?

Thanks for a great laugh, Sara. Everytime they come up with a theory about any illness I just about crack up with the stupidity. I was a normal sized baby but baby look at me now!!!! Chuckling as I type. Hugs MK

Yikes, I heard this on the evening news. Puleez, can they just give it up?. I was a small baby - 5lbs 6oz, I use light bulbs, breathe the same polluted air that everyone else does and yes, I do eat chocolate. In the midst of all this nonsense I didn't hear a single word that sounded like
c-u-r-e. But maybe I will try candles now that I've already been dx'd. They surely are more romantic, they do a great job of hiding wrinkles and crow's feet, and they smell terrific. Hmm, not a bad idea really! Thanks, Sara. L&H's, Luci

ROTFL Someone has way too much time on his hands (has to be a man, no sensible woman would come up with something this off the wall). BTW, I was a 7 pound something baby, so that's not what caused mine. I think I will blame it on green vegetables or laundry detergent. Still laughing, Lauri

I have been shaking my head so much since getting dx'd that my brain is starting to shake all on its own when ever I read anything in regards to causes.

Yes, Lauri, green vegetables! How perfect. Now I have an excuse for not eating brussels sprouts. Yuck!!

Gail, I'm joining you. I like lots of salt on the rim.

Love and hugs,

I wasn't even 5 lbs. Just missed the incubator. When I was diagnosed, my principal asked me if I had been out in the sun too long. I think maybe he had. Darn, I was just going to change some of my lightbulbs to the new daylight ones. Hugs, Di
