I, too, was healthy most of my life. I had allergies, and a cervical pre-cancerous condition years ago. A quit smoking in 1996. I was a social drinker.
While no one knows how many of us get this disease, there are risk factors.
People with gastro problems are at higher risk. I believe this includes reflux.
People in Thailand who have eaten the river fluke are at the greatest risk.
They have now come out with new guesses as to who are at higher risk, and, surprisingly, people in the printing/photo developing field may be at greater risk. For some reason, in the U.S., the left and right coasts have more cc patients.
Personally, I worked in the printing industry all of my adult life. So did a few of the cc members I have met. I have met many from the east coast.
And Daisy, tell them that veggies are great! The best foods to fight any cancers. It's sushi, processed foods, and sugars they have to stay away from! lol So no McDonalds or Burger King anymore!!
