Cigarettes contain chemicals that cause cancer, look at your cigarette box. And whether or not its the manufacturers or the government that put these chemicals in them, it is causing cancer to humans at an alarming rate, you don't even have to smoke them, the second hand smoke will get you too.

Before you say "Well my grandpa Smoked since he was a Kid, and Lived to be 100 Years old"

Yes along time ago cigarettes did not contain these chemicals, that's why smokers lived longer, but his generation of people are dropping like flies from cancer. And everyone is hooked on them, and they can't quit, and continue to smoke around non-smokers (Whether they like it or not) I mean everywhere you go around here allows smoking in public, even around children.

Fear your next checkup, or if you have a pain that feels like a pulled muscle. Peace

One thing is for sure, I don't believe anything that the Govt. has to say anymore. They are so busy trying to cover the things that have recently come to light that they have no time for the truth. The old saying goes "The truth shall set you free". Right now, the truth would bury this country. You might not even want to know the truth. It might be stranger than fiction.

Sorry Andy... Just Not true... The Rate of cancer and other diseases claimed to be caused by smoking is about the same as it has been for a as long as we have been keeping track of it.... Yes there are More People with it because there are just More People... And More people that have had it and due to better treatment that are living longer... But the percentage of people getting cancer is about the same as it has always been... But More are surviving as better treatment comes along...

I DISAGREE, because it seems to me that very few are living past 60 anymore... HALF of the ones that i grew up with are already DEAD and GONE... AT LEAST, that is the way it seems to be around here...

You're right.

It does seem as if people in our area are dying younger. People say Cancer is more common here too, than in other area's of the Country.

You guys are mixing two separate issues.... Cancer New Onset rates and Cancer Mortality Rates...

New Onset rates are close to what they have always been... People get cancer at about the same rate today as they did in 1800...A Bit higher due to increases in sun exposure as we changed from being totally covered up to going to the beach pretty much totally exposed...But the Average number of New Onset Cancers is pretty much a straight line on a graph....

Now Mortality Rates is based on Treatment and yes here in this part of the country the Mortality rates are higher than the rest of the nation... Part of that is due to the lack of quality treatment that most the nation gets at the larger treatment centers because we in the south have less insurance, less money to make such centers profitable here so we get the worse treatment systems.... And Part is because of our lifestyles in that we have many back in the hills and hollers that put off getting treatment, going to a doctor until it's to late to do anything about....

SOMETIME, around 20 years ago i was watching channel 6 out of KNOXVILLE TN and the NEWS CASTER, named SAM BROWN said, that within A 100 MILE RADIUS of OAK RIDGE, there is a HIGHER RATE of CANCER than normal... SO, as the crow flies WE are in THAT 100 miles...

I was at OAK RIDGE hospital, back some years ago with MY WIFE and she was having some TESTS done... ANYWAY, i struck up a CONVERSATION, with a GUY, who had his wife there also, for tests... WE got on the SUBJECT of RADIOACTIVITY and that i had heard there was a piece of ground that nothing would GROW on and that all the DEER that were killed around OAK RIDGE had to be checked for RADIATION... SINCE he lived in OAK RIDGE, HE knew what i was talking about and said that he knew where this piece of land was... HE said that it was next to the river and that HE had actually pulled up to it in his boat... HE also said that it was a strange sight and that he was afraid to get out of his boat on to the land... I DON'T blame him, i would be afraid that it would eat the soles off my shoes...
