      I saw this the other day. It's interesting to say the least and yeah, kind of a bummer to think there's nothing to be done about my DNA but then I also wonder about auto immune conditions also, and now want to study those.

      i talked with my onc the other day and she said that people are forever comparing the rates of prevention of heart disease with that of cancer. heart disease is very largely preventable since there are so many known factors we can alter. but cancer is still virgin territory. people don't want to hear it, but most cancers are simply the body's way of telling us that time's up. in fact, when you think of the fact that apoptosis (normal cell death) is inevitable, and that it is the impulse for cells to become immortal that turns into cancer (i'm personalizing, but i think you know what i mean), it's really a matter of not accepting death that leads to death.
      this is not to say that we should simply lie down and not do anything about it, just to say that the cancer process has happened before and will keep on happening even in people without the disease. cancers form a million times a day, and most of them die right away, in everyone. so when anyone asks me, and they have, if i feel that my cancer is due to Living Wrong in some way, or that i brought it on myself by Wrong Attitudes, or that God is Testing me, i simply tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine, because they are potentially as full of cancer as any of us. sickness and blame are not good partners in this particular case. and even if someone is, say, a lifelong smoker who develops lung cancer, the blame has to be tempered, since there are a lot of lifelong smokers who don't get cancer. luck of the draw, friends, luck of the draw.
