Cancer is scary. And to make it worse, now they're finding out that some forms are CONTAGIOUS! :-O

I'm just going to hole up in my boat and drift at sea until it's safe to come back.

Of course Jesus has given you some sixth sense that allows you to know what is in a person's heart.

Thanksfully Jesus will make that decision for me, not you.

Thank you. It was just a weird feeling when the doctor told me and my siblings it was lung cancer. We sat there saying no way she never smoked and he assured us it was lung cancer. I'm just thankful it was fast and pretty much painless for her. You just never know.

Non-smokers get lung cancer all the time. Read the stats. You're TWICE as likely to get lung cancer if you smoke.

That means for every 3 smokers, 1 is a non smoker.

Are you saying there shouldn't be laws b/c that's what gets people killed?

I read this book a while ago, but if I remember correctly, people were killed due to the trafficing aspect, such as people are killed in gang wars over drug turf.

Bigs bucks bringing pot over the border. I tell you what, no one ever thinks about that aspect of it when they're smoking one little doobey in the living room.

I cannot offer prayers as I am not in any way religous. I do offer my sincere and very deepest sympathy though. We Jews will never forget the courageous solidarity trip her husband made to Israel in her hour of need:

Wherever they both are, I truly hope they find eternal peace. It is what righteous people deserve.

Not all smokers get cancer. The maximum figure is around 25%.

The largest grouping of lung cancer IN THE WORLD is Chinese women. They cook in oils over smokey fires.

She was young and healthy. Her genetics and stress from her husband's illness could have been factors too, as well as second hand smoke.

"okay, it looks like the responses are about 50/50. (Half think I'm crazy, half think I'm merely stupid.) We'll call it a draw."

Of course you are entitled to your opinion. What people are objecting to is their total inappropriateness on this particular thread.

My father, a long time smoker of unfiltered Kools, died of oat cell carcinoma of the lung. His brother died of lung cancer, and never smoked. The family suspects my uncle's exposure to asbestos may have been a factor. I am not sure the type of cancer that killed him.

Go figure.

This is so sad. I feel so terrible for her son. They are replaying an interview she had with Diane Sawyer in November. She said her son has had to deal with his dad dying and his grandmother (her mother - and she said her son was extremely close to her mother) all within a year. Now this.

She was so optimistic in November and said treatment was going well and shrinking the tumor.

LOL!
Another MENSA candidate.
Not all smokers get cancer. The maximum figure is around 25%.--
Publius6961 to Burkean

And that proves... ?
A causal relationship between smoking and cancer doesn't mean smoking alone is sufficient to cause cancer.


Second hand smoke in a killer only anectodally. All Scientific studies indicate otherwise.--
Publius6961

Not true. (see below)


Not all lung cancer victims are smokers.--Publius6961

And that proves... ? That there are other causes of lung cancer, obviously.

 


From the Mayo Clinic website:
The problem of secondhand smoke: How it affects nonsmokers

Health experts have recognized the relationship between secondhand smoke and health risks for decades. The research exploring their connections is ongoing. However, some of the known or suspected risks include:

Cancer

... Experts believe that secondhand smoke is to blame for roughly 3,000 lung cancer deaths in nonsmokers each year in the United States. Some research indicates that people exposed to a spouse's cigarette smoke for several decades are about 20 percent more likely to have lung cancer. Those who are exposed long-term to secondhand smoke in the workplace or social settings may increase their risk of lung cancer by about 25 percent.

Heart disease

A 1999 report from the U.S. Surgeon General states that secondhand smoke is associated with up to 62,000 deaths from ischemic heart disease &emdash; heart disease caused by narrowing of blood vessels to the heart &emdash; in the United States each year.

Secondhand smoke causes increased cardiovascular risks by damaging blood vessels, decreasing your ability to exercise and altering blood cholesterol levels.

 

Little lungs, big impact: How secondhand smoke affects children

Secondhand smoke also may have a marked effect on the health of infants and children. Some conditions of concern are:

Asthma

Secondhand smoke may make asthma attacks more frequent and severe in children who already have asthma &emdash; up to 1 million each year.

Children with asthma who live with one smoker may be more than twice as likely to miss school because of a respiratory illness than are unexposed children without asthma. And if children with asthma live with two or more smokers, they may be more than four times as likely to be absent with respiratory illness.

Even children without asthma are 40 percent more likely to miss school with a respiratory ailment if they live with at least two smokers.

Secondhand smoke is also associated with up to 300,000 cases of bronchitis and pneumonia in infants and toddlers each year.

Middle ear conditions

Children living in households with smokers are more likely to have ear infections or fluid in their ears and are more likely to need surgically placed drainage tubes in their eardrums. Secondhand smoke may be a factor in more than 1 million children's visits to the doctor for middle ear infections every year.

Low birth weight and SIDS

Secondhand smoke is also associated with low birth weight. Low birth weight, in turn, has been linked to increased risk in adults of stroke, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes).

In addition, research indicates that if a mother smokes, her infant may have twice the risk of SIDS. The increased risk may be due to an infant's improper lung and brain development and an increased number of respiratory infections caused by smoking.

Tragic loss for the Reeve family. She was an inspiration and wonderful person.

Just another case that lends creedence to the theory that long term caregivers end up with health issues of thier own after their spouse passes.

I haven't read this entirethread, so forgive me if this has been said before.

I suspect Dana neglected her own health care while she was caretaker to Chris. This happens a lot. So I don't know if the Lung Cancer was primary, or if it metastasized from else where?

She was an advocate for stem cell research. Kudos to her.

Now that is really sad. Their poor little child losing both his parents at such a young age. That IS tragic and beyond my comprehension. May she rest in peace with her husband and may they both have their hand on the shoulder of their son to guide him through this tough time and througout the rest of his life. My prayers will be for this little guy.

People get cancer. Most types of Cancer are still NOT attributable to anything specific. Every other year a new food or chemical "may" be cancerous. I have a good friend who's never smoked, or lived with a smoker etc. who recently had a bout with lung cancer. Hopefully all the tissue was removed. Her doctors have stated it's probably not lifestyle related.

Sorry. I didn't know. Guess he's burnin' in hell then. ;)

Sadly, that is the more likely probability. (Beyond death there are only the two options of heaven and hell, after all.) The point is, many people make the assumption that a "good" person who dies has gone to heaven. The problem is, everyone invariably defines "good" so as to include themselves and others who believe and behave as they do. The truth is, no one is good. That automatically excludes everyone from heaven, because only the righteous may enter. Jesus made it clear that only those who receive Him as their savior shall enter ('No one comes to the Father except through Me,' He said) having been imputed with His righteousness as a result of placing their faith and trust in Him, believing that His death on the cross was the payment for their sin.

No, I don't know the state of Christopher Reeve's heart, but his public statements about Christians and his views on Christianity indicate strongly that he was not a believer in Christ. Those who die without Christ as their savior enter into hell for eternity.

I had terrible ear problems as a child. The only time my parents didn't smoke was when they were sleeping, though they were probably dreaming about it.

Dana Reeve: Death of a 'Super-Hero'
http://www.1010wins.com/pages/12519.php

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- Dana Reeve, who won worldwide admiration for her devotion to her ``Superman'' husband, Christopher Reeve, through his decade of near-total paralysis, has died of lung cancer at age 44.

1010 WINS Video: Dana Reeve

Reeve, a singer-actress who gave up some of her own career to be one of the nation's best-known caregivers, died late Monday at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Medical Center of lung cancer, said Kathy Lewis, president of the Christopher Reeve Foundation. Dana Reeve had succeeded Christopher Reeve as chair of the foundation, which funded research into spinal-cord paralysis cures.

Lewis said she was at Reeve's hospital bedside on Friday, and Reeve was ``tired but with her typical sense of humor and smile, always trying to make other people feel good, her characteristic personality.''

``She was a woman with an incredible heart who really put herself out there to help people with disabilities and especially those who are caregivers, something she knew a lot about.''

Reeve is survived by the Reeves' 13-year-old son, Will; two grown stepchildren, Matthew and Alexandra; her father, Charles Morosini, and two sisters. The foundation said no plans for a funeral have been announced.

Four months ago, at a fundraising gala for the foundation, Reeve looked healthy in a long, formal gown and said she was responding well to treatment and her tumor was shrinking.

``I'm beating the odds and defying every statistic the doctors can throw at me,'' Reeve said then. ``My prognosis looks better all the time.''

Reeve, a nonsmoker, had announced her lung cancer diagnosis in August. Doctors say 1 in 5 women diagnosed with the disease never lit a cigarette.

Asked how she kept her spirits up, Reeve said she ``had a great model.''

``I was married to a man who never gave up,'' she said.

Christopher Reeve, star of Hollywood's ``Superman'' movies, became an activist for spinal cord research after a horse-riding accident paralyzed him on 1995. He died Oct. 10, 2004.

Dana Reeve was a constant companion and supporter of her husband during his long ordeal and his work for a cure for spinal cord injuries.

Reeve, who lived in Pound Ridge, had appeared on Broadway, off-Broadway and regional stages and on the TV shows ``Law & Order,'' ``Oz,'' and ``All My Children.''

She was on the board of the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts, where she met Christopher Reeve doing summer theater, and the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.

A year ago, she won a Mother of the Year award from the American Cancer Society. A society vice president, Dr. Michael Thun, said Reeve ``has shown strength and courage in the face of tremendous adversity.''

my response to Publius6961

As I understand it, she may have had a genetic predisposition. And she was exposed to concentrated second-hand smoke for years. While this doesn't prove anything, a causal relationship is certainly a reasonable hypothesis.

I would wager that dying from lung cancer at age 44 is very rare for a non-smoker who wasn't, say, exposed to asbestos 10-30 years prior to the onset of the disease.

Imagine smoking didn't exist. If I found the first tobacco plant, and went to the government to get permission to sell this toxic, highly addictive and often lethal substance to the public, how far do you think I'd get?

I also read she wasn't a smoker. Don't know if that meant currently, or was previously. In any event in regards to tobacco, remember, we have a huge, cultural, financial history with tobacco dating back further than George Washington's own crops. A huge part of the South was employed by it. The problem is once we found out it was addictive, the tobacco industry appears to tried to have hid it. Now we have huge health care costs to deal with an addictive product that the government should have dealt with earlier. Health insurance is skyrocketing, smoking is apart of it. I honestly cannot believe we allow smoking today? What benefit is it? Can you imagine Martians landing on earth and spying on a bunch of employees with white sticks out of their mouth:

Martian Boss: Okay Zot, report your findings.
Zot: Well, it seems they stand around outside together in a semi-circle with the white sticks lit with fire.
Boss: Rationale?
Zot: Unknown. It does not appear to be some subversive insurrection in the planning. Small talk is made. Once the white stick shortens from the fire. It is thrown on the ground.
Boss: So we have no fears of a post-attack reprisal?
Zot: Actually, if we wait a few decades, more deaths from the sticks will occur, and lower the adult population.
Boss: Agreed. Anything else.
Zot: Two things, one, strangely, numerous people with sticks stand outside medical facilities, and two, when are we going to let Elvis go back?
