Cancer Doctors Cite Risks of Drinking Alcohol

The American Society of Clinical Oncology, which represents many of the nation’s top cancer doctors, is calling attention to the ties between alcohol and cancer. In a statement published Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the group cites evidence that even light drinking can slightly raise a woman’s risk of breast cancer and increase a common type of esophageal cancer.

Heavy drinkers face much higher risks of mouth and throat cancer, cancer of the voice box, liver cancer and, to a lesser extent, colorectal cancers, the group cautions.

“The message is not, ‘Don’t drink.’ It’s, ‘If you want to reduce your cancer risk, drink less. And if you don’t drink, don’t start,’” said Dr. Noelle LoConte, an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the lead author of the ASCO statement. “It’s different than tobacco where we say, ‘Never smoke. Don’t start.’ This is a little more subtle.”

Other medical groups have cited the risks of alcohol as a possible cause of cancer. But this is the first time that ASCO has taken a stand.

The Partial Over New York City

Here it is, kids. I got it. Oh, I got it.

That’s the sun through a pinhole in a sheet of construction paper ( I used a needle to be clear ) onto a piece of matte board which was up-cycled from the framer’s trash late last night. Do not try this at home. It is extremely dangerous and in fact, after viewing the partial directly but through my amber tinted vintage Cazal’s, everything appeared to have a Kangol cap on top of it. The damage to my eyes was, thankfully, temporary and I am happy to report that I am back to my regular state of blurry vision. I am, however, still entirely deaf. nobody told me to wear earplugs. Thanks. Thanks a lot Weather Channel! It’s not like as a DJ I would need to hear anything. Yeah. Deaf. Great! Watched the eclipse WITHOUT EARPLUGS and I lost my hearing.

Sooooo….I guess just emails and texts, OK?

 

 

It Happened In Cleveland

There has been a lot of talk and deep web research concerning balloons around here lately. A party approaches.

The issue of balloon release is currently being debated on legal, social and moral levels and while googling advanced balloon release techniques I stumbled upon this.

It happened at Balloonfest 1986, in where else, Cleveland.

Chaos at the mistake by the lake.
