16. well lets see.
"We don't optimize what we know about cancer prevention and treatment to all segments of the population in the U.S."

So what does this mean, only some people get special treatment? Is this a bold statement that treatment is only for the special people?

Or if it is wrong, as a poster with cancer said above, is the whole thing just another 'story' where cancer is code for current issues in a certain group of people that like to talk that way.

Here is a funny one for you guys. The history channel makes up stuff to talk in code, or to alice people. No kidding. They narrate stories of the past in a way to tell stories of what is going on today within a certain group of people.

3 or so years ago, they said Hannable crossed the Alps and only one elephant survived. They even had one of their fun fact red backgrounds as they said this. They said only one elephant made it across alps.

A few days ago, they said 40% of troops were lost in the alps, but all elephants made it through to fight battle at (forget name of place).

By actually having a memory, and clearly knowing that these statements were made. (I talked about the one elephant one often when I heard it. I thought it was odd.) I Remember it clearly. And yet now it is they all made it.

You can watch their shows, insert code for different factions, and actually get current event social/political news for a certain group. Or you can get a fun alice :)
