Was just watching an interview with Don Imus since he got his dx on PC. He said he exercised regularly and mostly ate organic vegetarian foods, sounded like he was clearly looking for a direct blame for his cancer. He went on to say that it might have been stress from all the cameras all around him all the time. The news medical reporter did add that there wasn't any hard evidence that stress caused the cancer.
Poor Don, famous or not, wealthy or not, is trying to come to terms with the dreaded Cancer. Blame is part of the process we all go through in coming to terms with Cancer. I know I did, and still do even months later after treatment. The "what could I have done different" syndrome will drive you crazy after awhile.
I am sure Don will get the very best care and advice, and hopefully his Stage II PC will be contained, I believe he's currently 68 years old. I wish him only the best in his treatment and ultimate recovery.
