such a defeatist attitude, we all will die, some sooner than others and the latest research indicates that some very basic dietary habits may prohibit certain neoplasm from forming.

What you call defeatism I call realism. I applaud your efforts to inform FReepers of what they may do to prolong their well being. It is a noble gesture. Perhaps had I known these things years ago things would be different. However, as a soldier I have more immediate concerns...like how do we extend the lives of those we send into battle to protect our freedoms? While I fully recognize that the 3000 or so troops we have lost so far in Iraq and Afghanistan pale in terms of the numbers lost each year to cancer, they did not enjoy the life that so many of us enjoy. They gave theirs for ours. I don't mean to rant on you but a few extra years for someone like me is nothing like what I wish I could give to the kids who will never see what I have seen or experienced.
