On My Home Planet

I have an opinion about everything, and here it is for the world to see.

Hating on: morons, self-righteous political extremists, the man-and-baby-hating strain of feminism, CraigsList, yuppies, careerists, white liberal guilt, people devoid of any sense of morals or personal responsbility, and other generally clueless and misguided types who continually piss me off.

Race for the Cure

Best of luck to my girl, Mad Asian Lady, as she not only conquers the 5K Race for the Cure run tomorrow, but raises thousands of dollars for breast cancer research and earns herself a new Coach bag.

I iwll not be participating myself, but as a PSA, I wanted to spread awareness of some facts I learned there last year:

Being around even secondhand cigarette smoke increases your risk of cancer exponentially. Your friends who smoke around you are endangering you more than they are endangering themselves.

Having your first child after 30 or never giving birth at all increases your risk of all female cancers. So if you think your high stress job that leaves you no time for family or noncomittal asshole guy is killing you.... you're more right than you think.

Much of the reason breast cancer's so common in women: crap they put in our cosmetics, aka phletyates (sp) and parabens. They get absorbed through the skin and greatly your chances of getting cancer. Even companies like Clinique, who donate money to Susan G. Komen, use these chemicals. Take home message: buying really-higher-end beauty products may save your life.

Thinner women with bigger ( C cup +) boobs = fucked. Very high risk group.

Boob jobs also up your risk.

Vegetables and exercise are your friends. Duh.

Good luck tomorrow to Mad Asian Lady!!
