Can you actually give some description what this is? I've entered the page, and I have honestly no idea what am I supposed to do, or what is it all about, besides cancer.

It's basically about The Daily Mail classifying every possible object on earth as either an cause of cancer or as a treatment of cancer. Or both.

Thing is, cancer happens. In theory, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. We're supposed to drop at 60 anyway, even if we live really well. Most cancer shouldn't really matter, since we'd normally self-destruct not too long afterwards anyway.

Huh? Why is this dumb? I don't get it. The paranoia and the way carcinogens are detect through statistical means NEEDS to be criticized. This is awesome man!

My point was not that about cancer, or anything about cancer, you guys don't really get it, do you? My point has absolutely nothing to do with cancer, instead, i was referring to how they classified everything on earth as a possible cancerogenic or cure for cancer. I was not talking about when people are supposed to die or cancer. Get it now? :P Also, they have no evidence whatsoever to support their claims.


EDIT: also, the way the criticized games for being a potential cause for the 14th year old who hung himself is ridiculous. They don't have any evidence to support that, yet they blatantly say it loudly. :P

Um. what?

The daily mail is CLEARLY criticizing the way people determine the methodologies behind finding and reporting carcinogens. You don't find it strange that they have items that have articles both saying they cause cancer and articles that say they prevent cancer? Just because you link to something doesn't mean you believe in it.

The items listed at quiet clearly bogus. That's the point man.

you didn't have a point to begin with, all you did was link to something and left us wondering.

Haven't watched it, although they did clearly make it look like the boy did suicide because of the game. And that's stupid.
