Are You Taller Than The Average Height? Have You Seen This Study?

Postby Knox » Thu Oct 05, 2017 1:47 pm

Yes. I am 5 ft 7 ..and a half lol.
Actually last year I had a scare. I found a hugh lump in my breast. It came up in just a couple of months (or that's when I noticed anyway). I had surgery. It took almost two weeks for them to call me with the results. I was a nervous wreck..thinking I might have cancer. I finally called them, and (thankfully) they told me it was not cancerous. I didn't know this (about the height) at the time, or I would have been more nervous.

Yes, I did read it and thought what a load of rubbish

It scares tall women, and that includes me, I'm 5'8''

it also gives shorter women the impression that they wont get Cancer and that's dangerous

This is just another scaremongering story that should be read with a 'pinch of salt'

I had an aunt who was just 5' tall she died of breast cancer.

I had another who was 5'1 she also died of breast cancer.

Yet another is 5'9 and she is still going strong at 87.

My mother was just over 5'2 and died of cancer.

Her mother was 5'8 and died at age 89 from a stroke basically.

Honestly I don't think we should ever worry over much about these so called studies. Mostly they are just a group of 'experts' trying to justify their jobs and the money they are given to research whtever the latest theory is.

We are all going to die, young, middle aged or old. From health problems, accident or at the hands of someone else.

The when doesn't really matter.

Just live each day as though you knew you were to die soon, which mostly applies to everyone anyway.

I have absolutely NO faith in these spoutings!

One day sugar is bad for you , next day sugar is good for you.
The day after, wine is bad for you then the day after that wine is good for you!

More money wasted by scientists on statistical surveys instead of on creating things to better our lives and make the world a better place to live in

You can get road over by a bus that has mounted the kerb, you can step off the kerb and break your neck, etc.

For goodness sake there our people out there who have smoked heavily and drunk themselves silly for decades and lived into their 90s or beyond

When your time's up you'll go, however way that will be
