    By transitive property, its almost time to stop worrying about Cancer and Heart Disease, right?
    You worry about cancer and heart disease?

    Cancer... Don't play with chemicals.

    Heart disease... Eat right and work out.

    Smutty, I love you, but this is the dumbest, most ignorant, ill-informed thing you've ever said.
    I'm hoping its a troll, or you'll at least pretend it is.

    I like you Jay but you worry a lot. It was kind of a troll but also a post of confusion because I can't imagine living a life where you concentrate so much on negative things that "could" happen. I really don't get it.

    Re: Nervous yet? covid-19

    Maybe you define worry in a completely different way than I do.

    Am I personally worried about cancer? Well, sort of. I have a genetic disposition to colon cancer...so yeah, I take precautionary measures. And to think, all I have to do is avoid chemicals and I won't get cancer. But even that is missing the forest for the trees. I don't think I need to explain this, just take 5 seconds to actually think about it.

    Am I worried about heart disease? For myself, at this point in my life, not particularly. For my grandparents who are old and getting heavier from inactivity. Yep. Then there is my girlfriends dad who has high cholesterol despite being in otherwise excellent health. But its their fault, right?

    If you think I come across as someone who "worry's a lot," you are choosing to see what you want to see and completely overlooking the fact that I take far more risks in my day to day life than the average human.
    Your "fuck 'em, its their own fault" attitude is applicable to some people, but is generally not what anyone here is advocating for. And to be honest, Its mostly applicable to those who could take reasonable precautions with little effort but don't. Not the ones who take precautions or just get the short end of the stick and end up losing their life. That is who it is worth worrying for.

    I don't think fuck em it's their own fault is how I operate.

    I have been sitting here trying to figure out what my actual take is and the best I can come up with is that I value life less than you do.

    The explanation I've heard is:

    • Italy is home to a lot of Chinese manufacturers, who built there to gain entrance to the EU. So they were getting it directly from China.
    • The population is older than average.
    • Italian families often live in multigenerational households.


    The BioGen conference February 26-27 in Boston that became a superspreader event was traced to an Italian manager.

    You sound like just the type to go on a crusade if somebody in his family is killed by negligence of others such as drunk driver, improperly trained doctor, lack of proper safety in a roller coaster theme park etc.


    Unless of course you think that other peoples negligence that affects you is a different scenario?


    This loops us full circle right back to the title of the thread where people die due to others spreading a disease to them.


    Here's your sign.

    You guys have completely missed the point. I don't worry about getting cancer now, tomorrow, etc. I am concerned for those people that do have it now. I am concerned about what treatment options will be available if I or a loved one end up getting it. You are absolutely insane if you think either:

    a) it can never happen to you if you avoid chemicals and have a good diet/exercise routine
    b) we all die some day, not worth investing in medicines.

    I don't know what insecurities you guys are trying to hide with the tough guy "gotta die sometime" act. You have literally picked a fight saying that we shouldn't worry about cancer and heart disease, and think they're both avoidable.

    Personal experience with drunk drivers and you couldn't be more wrong about him on that point.

    It's been posted about here several times now.

    Jay,

    I am not saying it isn't worth investing in.

    It isn't something that I think about at all though. If someone gets sick they get sick. Hopefully there is good care for them at that point.

    Re: Nervous yet? covid-19

    Active Covid cases per population, Northeast states. Calculated from Worldometer data.

    Rhode Island 10.75%
    Maryland 5.95%
    Connecticut 4.87%
    New York 4.61%
    New Jersey 2.81%
    Maine 2.24%
    Massachusetts 0.52%
    Vermont 0.42%
    New Hampshire 0.22%

    Why RI remains highest nationally and regionally is a bit of a mystery. The population is older - but not the oldest. Population density is high - but not the highest. Nursing homes aren’t as big a problem as NY, NJ and MA. Government seems to be criticized both for being too strict and too lax.

    Looked at total cases per capita as well. RI is #3 nationally. The next highest in the region are MA #33 and CT #34. ME is #40, NH is 46, ME 49, VT 50.

    I've been wondering about Rhode Island for some time now. It's a real puzzler. Almost like there's something wrong with the data feed.
