Many cancer deaths traced to alcohol
Fox News, by Carl Nierenberg

Original Article

Posted By:ruready?, 2/24/2013 8:14:59 AM

Alcohol use accounted for roughly 3.5 percent of all cancer deaths in the United States in 2009, a new study finds. This amounts to nearly 20,000 Americans who lost their lives to cancer that year as a result of drinking.[snip]"Alcohol is a known cancer-causing agent in humans, but it has been severely overlooked as a preventable cause of cancer deaths," said study co-author Timothy Naimi, a physician and alcohol researcher at Boston University Medical Center. "People need to know the impact of alcohol on cancer deaths because it´s another reason why they should not drink excessively."

I´m with #1. It´s always "It´s for your own good, you´re just too stupid to know it"

BTW, anybody ever get annoyed at the stupid seat belt buzzer in your car. Can´t get in the car without the thing banging. I use my late model Honda SUV to drive around my private property, neighbors´ property, dirt roads, 3 MPH, and the seat belt alarm is banging. "It´s for your own good. Buckle up ..."

Liberals are everywhere. Wish they would move to another planet.

What were the controls on this study? Did these people ONLY drink alcohol and come in contact with nothing else? Maybe it was cocktail peanuts or the olives or the coke in the Cuba Libre or the hot sauce in the Bloody Mary that did it. I know: it was tiny umbrella poisoning!

Wonder if they will ever delve into marijuana and a link to breast cancer? Naw, too popular.

I think this study is amusing because the first public miracle recorded was Jesus turning water into some really fine wine at a wedding. There was also another passage mentioning a glass of wine helping digestion with a meal. So I take a study like this with the teensiest grain of salt.

How would you describe 3.5% of something? If four out of five dentists recommend Trident gum, that´s "most" dentists. Three out of five would be "a majority" of dentists, and two out of five might be "many" dentists. But 3.5%? That´s less than four out of a hundred. I would describe that as "very few" or "almost no" cancer deaths linked to alcohol.

Bottoms up, my friends.

I like to know what I´m putting in my body and its effect. The problem frequently is that we are not given enough information about how the study was conducted to determine if it is relative to our personal life. For months, local and national news have been pushing flu vaccines especially for the "elderly". But now we are told these same vaccines are only 9% effective for the "elderly". The second I read or hear the word "study" I begin to doubt what comes next.

If stopping the use of high potency chemical drug therapy were replaced with so many different natural methods available of getting the body in a PH alkaline balance, I bet the cancer death rate would go down tremendously. But, then also would the profits of the big Pharmas.

Why is it that all of these studies can tell you what causes cancer, but we are light years from a cure ?

If the conservative insurgency has been crushed, why was Mitch McConnell walking around onstage at CPAC with a musket? He couldn’t have sucked up to the right any harder if he wore a tri-corner hat and had the Gadsden flag tattooed on his rear. The death of the conservative revolution, the Tea Party, or whatever you call it, has not merely been greatly exaggerated. It’s been flat-out lied about. It isn’t dead. It just changed, from a shoestring operation to one with real clout. And it’s well on its way to doing what it set out to do – arm-twist

Louisiana is suing national left-leaning policy group MoveOn.org in federal court, saying it violated copyright law when it put up a billboard and commissioned video ads critical of Gov. Bobby Jindal that use the state´s tourism logo and motto. Republican Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne has been locked in a pitched battle with the group for weeks, unsuccessfully calling for it to take down the billboard that is currently up on the I-10 coming into Baton Rouge from Port Allen. We have invested millions of dollars in identifying the Louisiana: Pick Your Passion brand with all that is good about Louisiana.

A day earlier, workers finished carting off the huge rig that had drilled three new wells beneath this small patch of south Texas farmland and he’s now getting ready to prime them for production. He reckons that about three weeks from now each will be producing 1,000 to 2,000 barrels a day. “That’s money!” he exclaims with a broad smile. It’s also power, and not in the combustion sense.

Democrat Mary Landrieu´s quest for a fourth Senate term will turn on whether she can attract just enough support from independents and Republicans to win in this increasingly conservative state. The daughter and sister of New Orleans mayors, that´s been Landrieu´s re-election strategy since 2002, when her donors included a Baton Rouge physician named Bill Cassidy_now her Republican challenger in this year´s midterm elections. Replicating that winning formula could depend on what matters more to voters: Landrieu's growing ability to help Louisiana's oil and gas industry through her recent promotion to chairwoman of the Senate Energy and National Resources Committee or her unapologetic vote for

When the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, the year ends -- and so does the ordinary lightbulb. Jan. 1. marks the end of a seven-year effort to outlaw the ordinary lightbulb, thanks to a 2007 law that raised minimum efficiency standards for traditional incandescent bulbs far beyond what the technology can manage. It’s lights out for the traditional light bulb, in other words, which was essentially killed by that bill. “The government started phasing out incandescents in 2010, starting with the 100-watt bulb, and then followed by the 75-watt,” explained Melissa Andresko, communications director for lighting-automation company Lutron. “Come

WASHINGTON — State Sen. Elbert Guillory, R-Opelousas, said he is most likely going to run for lieutenant governor in 2015, rather than pursue a U.S. Senate bid next year. Guillory, 69, has seen his popularity rise among conservative circles since switching from the Democratic Party earlier this year. The change made him the only black Republican in the Louisiana Legislature. Since then, Guillory has said he would consider running either for the Senate against Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., or for the lieutenant governor seat that Lt. Gov. Jay Darden is expected to vacate in his bid to become governor.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
