Re: now cancer and illnesses

That is surprising, Noreen. Hopefully though since you caught it early, they can hold it off longer than you can hold on to 29. ;+) I certainly hope they can.

It's so true, one does see more and more illnesses, especially in youths
that one used to see only in senior citizens.
Had a recent diagnoses of early Glaucoma. I was shocked at first, but the
Dr. said that was very common at my age( 29 and holding.........), that it is
not uncommon now to see early stages even in people in their 20's, even

4th or 5th grade class will show that the first has happened. I have two
friends whose husbands are undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Another

a few weeks) that their exposure to pesticides is likely to be less than it
was a dozen years ago - though the common commercial diet it extremely
