all the buzz in Petworth, Columbia Heights and the 14th Street Corridor-Washington, DC. Welcome to the beautiful life.
great minds think alike!i was thinking the EXACT same thing this morning when going through the news!EVERYTHING will kill you.
I am also always confused how exactly they calculate the risk. The story says:"One glass of wine or a pint of beer a day raises the risk by 10 percent."Ok, so if the risk of getting the cancer is 1/100,000 (i.e. one person in a hundred thousand), does the risk increase of 10% take that number to.. gasp... 1.1??? Or does it mean something else?Another thing I've always wanted to do is to sum up all the "100,000 people a year die due to X and Y" and see how many people should die every year overall.. I would be willing to bet $1 that the number is way higher than the actual annual mortality.. :D
