Major study finds link between eating fish and getting skin cancer

Sounds a bit fishy to me 🤣🤣 like the article says it’s inconclusive because it doesn’t cover relevant things such as skin type, hair colour, history of sunburn. Sunbathing habits I would say is the main problem, many Australian people will literally cook themselves in the sun from a young age. Outdoor occupations also put a person in a high risk category. Just think of children playing out in the sun every day, in the playground at school and walking to and from school five days a week for years being exposed to the sun. That is a big factor and the damage is done when we are young.

I know people in Australia tend to ignore the health warnings and since the 1980’s we have had the media advertising skin protection to no avail. It seems to be a cultural thing and uncool to wear a wide brimmed hat and sleeves in the summer. But in Australia you can still get sunburn and damage to your skin in winter. So I don’t think we need to worry about eating fish and getting melanoma when we have the hot sun , pollution in the sea though is surely a high risk of any cancer from toxic chemicals ingested by the fish and then humans. The blame for the of course is with corporations and they should be made clean up the oceans of the world, but that is unlikely to happen. The planet is full of toxins from corporations and one day nature may fight back. 

The sniffles keep on going

 Yuk! One week and one day and the sniffles keep on coming. I did the first reading in a week and it went fine but the sniffles were driving...
