So what isn't carcinogenic? I breathe, I will die. I eat, I will die. I drive, I will die. I drink, I will die. I smoke, I will die.

Someone just make me smile for a day or two; then I can die happy.

So is Saliva, but only in small amounts taken over a long period of time.

So I should be fine.

The medical and religious literature is replete with articles about how cancer is caused by resentment and can only be healed by forgiveness. Jane, God loves you. I hope that makes you happy.

chlorine in our drinking water is a known carcinogen. However it has been found that DDT is not carcinogous. It might have other effects, but cancer isn't one of them. Meanwhile all sugars in massive amounts lead to diabetes. Feeding cows leftover meat covered in chocalate spreads mad cow disease, the CDC knows that and still approves the practice. And meanwhile the Food and Drug admististration fines Amish farmers for selling unpasteurized milk to other Amish folk. And it's impossible for the government to control the borders.

This is hardly the land of the free, and the home of the brave. This is the land of the enslaved and home of the wussified, freaked out, terrified, cowards. A government out of control, where the innocent are persecuted and the true criminals get to live with three squares and a place to sleep, color TV, and total security...well that is what we are told. In fact prisons are where no guns are allowed, there is 24 hour surveillance, with a cop around every corner. No crime ever happens in prison because no one has any rights.

Yet fish, dogs and cats, and other animals get cancer all the time. Can fish be resentful?

If you actually read the peer-reviewed article, instead of the newspapers, you would know that the study has determined that the relationship of cell phone to cancer is still inconclusive.
