News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Smoking lowers chances of surviving throat cancer: "For people with cancer of the larynx or lower pharynx, continuing to smoke or drink alcohol make it less likely that they'll survive."

This is just so crazy it might just be correct. Though of course if a smoker who has throat cancer continues to smoke, there is really only one thing that will make him stop: yes, cold hot death. (but this is fodder for another study so don't take our word for it on this - we're not published scientists - but we are scientists! who else could come up with the concept of cold hot death? )

This flagrant obviousity is provided by Rajesh Dikshit, a visiting researcher working for the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France, who is making his email address less than public - probably for good reason.
