I heard about
some of this on the news and I'm like you, laughing. Also like you, I never ate french fries from McDonald's at the ages of 3-5 because, again like you, there weren't any McDonald's around when I was 3-5. I just don't like french fries, even till today, and it is a very rare occasion when I have some. I also don't eat at McDonald's. I don't
even eat potato chips often, I prefer pretzels. I wonder if it could have been the pretzels?
It's the left-handed cause that just cracks me up. My mother told me that wearing underwire bras caused it. My mother also told me that if you took a bath during your period, (a bath, not a shower) you would get tuberculosis.
Meat and milk with hormones can cause it (there's one that I could believe). Working or living near a transformer can cause it. Breathing can cause it because there is about
50% less oxygen in the air today. Cooked food, especially bbq'ing, is bad for you.
God forbid you have ever been around pesticides, there's another one. My onc told me to NEVER be around pesticides again. She didn't know, at the time, that I would one day meet a scorpion in my kitchen. She also didn't know that as a child, I would join my friends and run behind the mosquito spraying truck.
I'm willing to bet that if you just stayed in bed your whole life, you'd still get it. Why? Because you had no exercise.
The very sad reality of this disease is that they may have some hints, but they don't know what the cause is; or if they do, they're not telling. I also deeply resent the fact that they are wasting money on these stupid research grants when the money could be better used finding a cure.
Looks to me like it's a real good way to cure their problems with Medicare.
Irate, again, Jo-Ann
