Bladder cancer is the 5th most prevalent cancer in Canada. Stats like this are provocative.

I find it interesting that every disease has statics on what percentage of the population dies from that particular disease. (Usually these studies are linked to fundraising) I did some research a few years ago and added up the percentages and was amazed at the results. It ended up being something like 130% of the population die from various diseases. Since then, I've been pretty skeptical when it come to statistics.

In the US it is about 2.4% of people will get it during their lifetime. This year, an estimated 79,030 adults (60,490 men and 18,540 women) will be diagnosed with bladder cancer in the United States. Among men, bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer. Men are 4 times more likely than women to be diagnosed with the disease. In addition, incidence rates in white men are double those of black men.

We live on the 'edge' and try to reclaim ourselves with positive thinking...

And most people have several addictions...

And then, it's maybe some of the "good" people that have ended up with cancer. Happened to people I know. Never smoked or drank...still ended up dying with prostrate cancer...

How do you understand that?

I do understand, there is nothing worse than your own body to sentence you to death. I wish only people who deserved it got cancer.

That's what it seemed like in comparison to now...when I know several people who have cancer.

We might be paying now for the sins of the fathers...
