Cigarettes, dry-cleaning solvent, radon, lead paint, asbestos, DDT, mercury fillings, tuna that's all old news.

Now we got smoking bans, and not just in California. Even Europeans are catching on.

We got alternative dry cleaners. We got radon abatement. We got lead-free paint. It starts fading and chipping the day after it dries, but that's beside the point.

We got rid of that bad, evil asbestos. Of course, it's still in lots of homes in that bane of 1970s-era decor popcorn ceilings. But if you're thinking of removing it yourself, you'd better get it tested first.

On second thought, you'd better not get it tested or you'll have to - CONTINUED . . . . (http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/10/07/everything-will-kill-you/)

It's not breaking news. I already knew all of that.

The ultimate "irony" would be if science found that all rats/mice die of cancer.:eek::D

Karma's a bitch.

The writer makes a good point in this article. If you listened to all the hand-wringing doom-sayers, your life would be worthless.

We're all going to die. Devoting most of your efforts to staving off the inevitable will just mean that you make your Final Exit wearing diapers in a nursing home instead of thinking, "Holy shit!" as you become one with a fir tree on that double black diamond run.

You have to find your own sweet spot between wild abandon and living like a feedlot steer.
