1974-84: The devout scholar turns holy warrior
After finishing high school in Jedda in 1974, bin Laden decided against joining his siblings overseas for further education. Salim, the head of the clan, had been educated at Millfield, a Somerset boarding school. Another, Yeslam, went to university in Sweden and California. Osama entered the management and economics faculty at King Abdul Aziz University. There are some reports, again unconfirmed, that he married his first wife, a Syrian related to his mother, when he was 17. Salim, the elder brother who had run the bin Laden corporation after their father's death, hoped Osama would take up a useful role in the family business and ensured that a key element of his university course was civil engineering. Bin Laden himself preferred the Islamic Studies component of the course. Later, he was to combine the two in a radically effective way.

120. I'm not claiming that thyroid cancer can only be caused by radiation Updated at PM
but thyroid cancer is rare, and most commonly caused by radiation when it is in men
Oxygen-starved hydrocarbon fires are not going to cause the extreme heat seen at GZ-- plus it's not even clear how they came to be so widespread-- especially when the site was being sprayed with water and having sand dumped on it
Thyroid cancer has risen dramatically in the New South Wales region of Australia over the last decade. While the area had a low rate to start with, the Cancer Institute issued a report which says that thyroid cancer in the area was up by 40 per cent in men, and 84 per cent in women.
According to the Australian Broadcasting System (ABC), Verity Firth, the Assistant Health Minister, has said that "the popularity of gourmet sea salts in cooking is contributing to the problem," and that "thyroid disease can be prevented if people use iodized table salt instead."
The rates are also skewed toward higher risk in the city, versus the country. Assistant Health Minister Firth told the ABC, this is because "country people are eating common table salt, which contains iodine, rather than gourmet sea salt products."
Carcinoma of the thyroid gland is an uncommon cancer but is the most common malignancy of the endocrine system. Differentiated tumors (papillary or follicular) are highly treatable and usually curable. Poorly differentiated tumors (medullary or anaplastic) are much less common, are aggressive, metastasize early, and have a much poorer prognosis.
Thyroid cancer affects women more often than men and usually occurs in people between the ages of 25 and 65 years. The incidence of this malignancy has been increasing over the last decade. Thyroid cancer commonly presents as a cold nodule. The overall incidence of cancer in a cold nodule is 12% to 15%, but it is higher in people younger than 40 years and in people with calcifications present on preoperative ultrasonography.[3,4]
In 2008, thyroid cancer is expected to reach a record number of 37,340 newly diagnosed people in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Cancer Society.
