    Zika:Just shows how the Zombie thing could catch us off guard.

    Story here.

    It seems we take so LONG to deal with an emergency,how the Zombie thing could get us so much.

    But the new finding should help officials make a more convincing case to the public for taking precautions. Some officials hope the Zika report will change public thinking about Zika the way the 1964 surgeon general's report convinced many Americans that smoking causes lung cancer.

    Everyone panic,but do not rush out screaming "The Zombies are coming!!"

    I doubt the CDC has tested the babies of every pregnant woman who was exposed to the virus.
    "Smoking causes cancer" is a BS line that has been proven false. If smoking causes cancer then why do people who have never been exposed to smoking get cancer? Why do people who smoke for their entire life not get cancer, or emphysema or other problems the "smoking causes"?

    First.
    If smoking causes cancer then why do people who have never been exposed to smoking get cancer?
    I'm going to explain something to you. I'm going to explain it in easy speak because...well we all know why I'm going to explain it in easy speak. Falling from a ladder cause can you to break a leg. But yet people who have never gone on a ladder have indeed broken a leg. See how that works?

    I've never been around a long time smoker who was healthy or didn't sound like they swallowed a frog or didn't hack up half a lung while dragging a cig. I'm sure there is some super healthy person sucking down cigs like tic tacs that doesn't sound like a dying ertha kitt.

    I smoked a LONG time,and even though I am not yet dead,there are consequences from long term smoking..Circulation issues,some breathing issues,and other issues.

    Glad I finally quit,it is a real pain to quit,hard as hell..still get the urge from time to time BTW after a year and a half.

    Wasn't DF just mocking the way the media and joe-public don't differentiate between A causing B, and A significantly increasing the risk of B. Smoking doesn't cause cancer. Certainly not all cancers, by any stretch. But it DOES cause mutations in the cells, and it is those mutations that can develop into cancer. Other things can increase your risk too of course.

    I thought this was the point he was making rather than 'there is no link between smoking and cancer'. Because THAT would be like me saying 'I've bought hundreds of lottery tickets but never won, so there's no connection between having a ticket and winning the lottery. Smoking is just like buying thousands of tickets every day instead of the hundreds of tickets our lifestyles naturally provide us with. Each ticket still has the same chance of winning however many you have.

    It's not the nicest lottery, but we're all in it whether we like it or not. Avoiding having too many tickets is the best hope we have of avoiding cancer, but no one is free of risk however healthy they try to be.

    But weren't we talking about zombies? ^^

    I'll do more than bet. If he did mean that there is no difference in risk between smokers and non-smokers, I'm gonna start posting as though MY make-believe reality is real too!

    Some people don't understand how causation actually works. Some people that don't understand how causation actually works also don't understand how causation is established over correlation. But that's okay. It's why I don't get my medical or scientific information from them.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
