  • great minds think alike!
    i was thinking the EXACT same thing this morning when going through the news!

    EVERYTHING will kill you.

  • I am also always confused how exactly they calculate the risk. The story says:

    “One glass of wine or a pint of beer a day raises the risk by 10 percent.”

    Ok, so if the risk of getting the cancer is 1/100,000 (i.e. one person in a hundred thousand), does the risk increase of 10% take that number to.. gasp… 1.1??? Or does it mean something else?

    Another thing I’ve always wanted to do is to sum up all the “100,000 people a year die due to X and Y” and see how many people should die every year overall.. I would be willing to bet $1 that the number is way higher than the actual annual mortality.. 😀
