"I BET I CAN FIND 1,000,000 PEOPLE WHO THINK CANCER IS BAD AND THINGS THAT CAUSE IT ARE BAD AND IF IMMIGRANTS DON'T LIKE IT THEY SHOULD DIE"

That sort of Facebook Group?

Fortunately not. It's more of a 'Look at this newspaper which thinks everything will give you cancer. Look at it!' sort of group.

There are so many things that cause cancer I doubt they've read through to the 'F's yet.

HAHAHAHAHA!!

Cancer danger of that night-time trip to the toilet


Quote:
Simply turning on a light at night for a few seconds to go to the toilet can cause changes that might lead to cancer, scientists claim.


So turning on the kitchen light to get a drink is perfectly safe?

What is truly scary are the know-nothing knobhead commentators who blame the scientists for this drivel - when it is clear from the story that this is some sort of preliminary hypothesis, with no assessed risk factor other than 'affecting the body clock can cause health problems - possibly, if other factors aren't really to blame' and 'Daily Mail Reporter (who is probably just having a laugh) made it up.

I have to admit, the thought of JOHN SMITH of BIRMINGHAM pissing all over his feet in the dark did make me chuckle :P :P
