America: Land of Opportunity (to get cancer)

“Moving to America will increase your cancer risk by 400%.”

In a recent Ted Talk, Robyn O’Brien (author of “The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It.”) recently shared her insight as to why moving to America will increase your cancer risk by 400%.

This information has been ignored for too long and is definitely the reason President Obama tasked his Cancer Panel with studying the long-term effects of exposure to known carcinogens and environmental toxins.

…And maybe it’s the reason so many empathetic (sic) politicians pushed for a US/Mexico border wall a few years back. They didn’t want to increase the risk of cancer for the immigrants. Those who signed the bill, I apologize for once thinking you were archaic, xenophobic, nationalists. It is now quite clear that you are all a bunch of sweethearts.

Stay sweet.

    I would like to stress though, as wonderful as it is to see a growing number of survivors, it is important that people do what they can to prevent cancer in the first place.
