    That man always does his hopmework and has some amount of patience. I just wished he’d go for harder targets, the public servants union rep proved a tough opponent, this one just falls under the “dangerous loons” category.

    “And my immune system is pretty good as a result.
    If there was a vaccine that would protect against all cancers at all ages, adults would be screaming for it. Nearest thing we have is regular cycling, which in a Glasgow University study of commuting has been shown to cut the chance of contracting cancer by 45%.

      Yeah, ’cause if you cycle in Glasgow you’ll die in an accident long before you’re old enough to get cancer!

        Hah! Study was all over Britain, but conducted by University of Glasgow.

        “263 450 participants (106 674 (52%) women; mean age 52.6), recruited from 22 sites across the UK. The exposure variable was the mode of transport used (walking, cycling, mixed mode v non-active (car or public transport)) to commute to and from work on a typical day.
        “Conclusions Cycle commuting was associated with a lower risk of CVD, cancer, and all cause mortality. Walking commuting was associated with a lower risk of CVD independent of major measured confounding factors. Initiatives to encourage and support active commuting could reduce risk of death and the burden of important chronic conditions.”
