Hello again iiwiiers
I had hardly any sleep last night, hence (partly) me forgetting to post the last one I wrote on time, but it's an ill wind that blows nobody any good, and not only does it give me an excuse for that (not really, as I should have posted it before hardly sleeping, but anyway) but it also as my regular readers will know gives me an excuse for this not being any good, should I so choose. I'm not going to deliberately put no effort into it though, so if it's rubbish despite my excuse you have the consolation of knowing that I tried roughly as hard as usual, however hard that is. It was also good because I wasn't late for the thing I had to be up for.
Why Do Some Lifelong Nonsmokers Get Lung Cancer? The bleeding Science Daily. Maybe I'm missing the point, but to my knowledge science has never said that only smokers get lung cancer, or should, or that there shouldn't be any way to get lung cancer before smoking. It doesn't even cause it, technically, although effectively it sort of does in many people. It makes it more likely that a person will get lung cancer, and if I recall correctly it's much more likely. This was understood, I thought. No-one was going 'oh my god, how is that possible? They must have been smoking when no-one was looking. The story itself doesn't even say why either. Just a bit of demographics of a few groups that are more likely to get it.
High Levels Of Physical Activity Can Blunt Effect Of Obesity-related Gene, Study Suggests - The Science Daily again. Huh? What effect would that be? Obesity? If you're genetically predisposed to being obese if you do a lot of exercise you're less likely to be obese? What? Surely there must be more to it than that? "Our results strongly suggest that the increased risk of obesity due to genetic susceptibility can be blunted through physical activity," the authors conclude. "These findings emphasize the important role of physical activity in public health efforts to combat obesity, particularly in genetically susceptible individuals." No! That's it! Jesus Christ! I think this is the worst one I've ever seen, of all these 'stories' I go on about. I suppose eating less can have the same effect. That's tomorrow's story, no doubt.
From the BBC. A taste for television hospital drama might make you more fearful about your own health, say psychologists. I don't need to do that one, do I? You can work it out for yourself. I'll just say 'quite right, too' and leave it at that. That's an odd phrase. the 'too' is odd. And so is the 'quite'. But I didn't make it up, did I? It's a commonly used phrase. I kind of thought Barry Norman or someone like that did it for a second there, but I don't think he did, and I don't have anyone else in mind. The day I was supposed to write my list of people like Barry Norman I thought I was smart not doing it, going out to play on the swings instead, thinking I would get away with it, that I would never need it. Don't do what I have done, kids, it will come back to bite you in the arse, like your long lost shark child.
that's all from me for now
see you around
