This survey would be more meaningful and useful if they filtered both gay and straight men by HIV status and compared only the HIV- ones.

Is it also possible that gay men pay more attention to their health and signs of something going wrong than do straight men?

Frank: remember you and I talked about the endless repetition of your catch phrases making them less effective? AmeriKKKan fits that description.

I would bet that MORE straight men DIE of Colon-rectal cancer then gay men, as gay men aren't scared to get Exams (back there)...so straight men die needlessly like fools..cause they're escared of anyone looking back there, and that's why many of them don't even WIPE themselves decently ie: skid marks on thier undies.( I know this as quite a few married friends who are women tell me about thier hubbys)

Might also be something to do with HPV passed around by promiscuous behavior, especially is the cancers are oral or anal.

Well, they have been saying for a LONG time that HPV is now THE leading cause of head, neck and throat cancers, passing tobacco.

I don't challenge that conclusion one bit. It is a sidebar to my observation.

As for skid marks: I've noticed the same thing.

Wonder if you'll feel the same way when your mama gets cancer and can't look after you any longer, David.
