    ABC evening news had a pretty good report on cancer deaths going down. They did note that lung cancer is going up in women (they said that was from smoking).

    What does every one think?

    I think that it is odd since smoking rates in every demographic including women have gone down consistantly. There are less women smoking in 2005 then anytime before.

    That might be the source of the smoke.

    But, who is he?

    OK since no one has the .......uh.....whatever:
    It was George Bush and Dick Chaney, together, secretly haters of women, caused the rise in cancer rates in women. There, I said it. .........I feel better.
