Cancer Comic Strip

My name is Suzan St Maur and I've had cancer twice. I find that humor helps me get through my cancer, and from what I understand it helps many others too. This blog is dedicated not to information about the disease, but to cancer warriors and their relatives/friends who just want some cheering chuckles. By all means share your funny stories and jokes with us - email them to suze @ suzanstmaur.com (If you want to know more about me see my profile on here or http://HowToWriteBetter.net)

Fat, fat, fat

Hee, hee, hee ... at long last I don't need to feel quite so guilty about being umpty-dump pounds overweight. I gleefully quote from this article on MSN ...

"A large U.S. government study has found that a diet low in fat but high in vegetables, grains and fruits does not reduce the risk of breast cancer, colorectal cancer or cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women."

And what's more, we post-menopausal girlies can eat carbs!!

"Researchers were also interested to note that high intake of carbohydrates did not increase body weight. Rather, it tended to maintain it."

So ... eat your heart out, Atkins dieters! And sorry about that awful pun!

Read the whole article here. If you're my age and female it's soooo heartwarming.

In fact the next thing you know they'll be saying that chocolate milk shakes cure cancer...

In the meantime though, I feel morally obliged to balance this post by issuing the following warning:
