It sort of sounds like some of us old timers are subscribing to the George Burns theory of toxicology. He drank a fifth of gin a day and was never without a cigar in his mouth and lived to age 100. The truth is not, my friends, in those of us who survived our exposures, it's in the statistics. We are a cancer-ridden generation and we don't live as long as people in some 30 other industrialized countries.
It's fine to rejoice in our survival as long as our bravado doesn't inspire others to think this kind of risk-taking is cool.
