Crap! I can't remember now where I read this yesterday but "they" now say that a study was done & I DO remember exactly how they termed this --- now think about it ----- they said the study revealed that women who got skin cancer "were more likely to have smoked". Not that women who smoked were more likely to get skin cancer. Get it? Hummmmmm.... & then they went on to say there was no difference when it came to the males of the species. ????????

Comments anyone?

More "scientific" mumbo jumbo. If I develop skin cancers it will be because I was a silly youth and tried to turn pale skin into golden brown and frequently burned in the process along with a genetic predisposition to it from my pasty white ancestors.

These idiot pseudo scientific releases are more harmful than facts. They anger smokers with their nonsense and make it impossible to sort fact from fiction.

Rant away to your hearts content Brenda. If I get skin cancer it's because I grew up in southern coastal Florida & treated my skin like a piece of bacon for 40 some years & no other reason. But we didn't know back then about the sun & cancer.
