READING THIS MAY GIVE YOU CANCER


Beer, it equals yummy.  Careful though.  Too much, and you may get liver cancer.  Some enjoy the puff of a cigarette during a crazy day.  Alas, the possibility of lung cancer is well known.  Even as I'm writing this blog on my iPhone, who knows what sort of electronic/cancer causing waves it's omitting.  Maybe, I should just do nothing, to avoid any type of cancer what-so-ever.

Wait...what?

Actually, I can't do that either. 

Turns out, by sitting still and doing nothing, you're still at a high risk of cancer!

Don't want to leave the couch because you must know who'll advance to the next round of 'Dancing with the Stars'?  You might want to TiVo it so you can fast forward through the nonsense. 

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research conference in D.C.; about 90,000 cases of breast and colon cancer are caused each year by people who don't get enough physical activity, either because they sit at a desk all day or because they are entranced with 'Dancing with the Stars' type shows.

In a study of 123,000 people, scientists found that people sitting still tend to die sooner and that those who engage in regular physical activity.

According to the research, walking at least 30 minutes a day will help avoid cancer.

Well, at least till they find something wrong with that in another study.

Long story short; people new to stop looking for the easy way to do things.  Due to my commute in Manhattan, I walk a lot.  Instead of taking escalators/elevators where available, I use the stairs.

These simple things will always add up.

For an upcoming holiday, that has the phrase "turkey coma" attached to it, we all might want to keep a little more active this week.

Well, least till football is over with.
