THE NEW "BIG C"

In my forthcoming book, "How to Cope Better When Someone You Love Has Cancer,"  which  I just redited for the 100th+ time the past few days, I say, "There are many paths to heaven only one of which is cancer."

As if to validate that statement there was sad and sorry news this week of another big C--Cantelope! Can u believe that eating a healthy fruit can kill you--weeks after you have injested it? OMG was my reaction. Who would ever think that your life could be on the line because you ate something healthy? Lettuce too has been implicated. It was meat a few years ago. Yougart and tofu can't be far behind.

I don't write this to scare you, but just to make you aware of how precious each day of our life is and how we need to be grateful for having dodged yet another bullet. And how we need to send our sympathies to those who were eating healthy and became terminally ill--15 by last count. What a sad and sorry state of affairs.

It all goes to prove my belief that "You just never know what's coming around the corner," which ties into my other belief which is "Time flies whether you are having fun or not so please have some fun!" And we won't be eating Cantelope in my house for a while, don't you know.Lettuce is still here but on the worry/wash throughly list.

Many years ago I said, "It is not paranoid to be paranoid these days!" I think I was right, but for the fact paranoia is not prevention.

Bye For Now,

Bill
