Yes because this thread wasnt created as bait for people was it :roll: Whats the matter not been getting enough attention :wink:
I'm having a protracted debate with Rodimus in another thread, sorry, it's my fault.

On both sides. If you followed every studies advice you'd go mental long before you got a tumour. Like Olli said, pretty much everything causes cancer, cancer is due to cells mutating in an unplanned way while being created, but our bodies need to replace cells daily for us to continue to exist. So effectively, life has the biggest risk of cancer. Should we ban life?

This isn't a law, it isn't even established fact. It's a study that suggests something. As the above link shows you can find studies to contradict it too. Just live your life sensibly. Don't chow down on a big lump of uranium or suck on a car exhaust, but if you want a pint or a fag, go for it.

Why does such a reasonably discussed topical news story which included scientific studies need to be met with defensive "state-the-bleedin-obvious" remarks and conclusions that we're talking about "bans"? Its just useful and potentially important information that could impact peoples lives for the better. You drinkers are well known for being defensive! :P

Meanwhile, don't discredit yourself by citing the Daily Mail! Focus on Rodimus!

Can't we just ban cancer. I mean, alcohol is nice - I'm sitting here drinking a bottle of Mort Subite Kriek Lambic 4% and it is jolly tasty. Much nicer than cancer.

Seph is banned for trying to put me out of business.

A high level of background radiation tends to actually be beneficial in preventing cancer, as it stimulates the immune system to break down incorrectly functioning cancerous cells so malignant cancer doesn't get a chance to multiply.

There is a place in Iran called Ramsar where some people there get 10x the commonly accepted upper limit of radiation. Yet lung cancer is slightly down (though other health issues radiation can cause like fertility are negatively affected). Levels are probably too close to the tipping point for it to be a benefit to stay there all year round, especially if like the locals you eat food grown there that contains a lot of radioactive material or live in houses made of radioactive rock, but do what most people of the region do and have been doing for thousands of years and use it as a spa resort - thats why the town was built there after all.

I occasionally miss the alcohol "buzz" that applies from about 1 to about 2-3 glasses of wine or beer (then goes downhill from there, at least for me). My tolerance for alcohol has dropped off significantly since my 20s.

Its scary when research like this comes out.

Just like the recent " 101 different ways vegetariasm can turn you into an insufferable bore "

Truly scary
