    My guess would we our synthetic world made of chemicals. But that is purely a guess.

    My sister died of breast, bone and brain cancer at the age of 44. She was a very heavy smoker and really didn't watch her diet at all. My mother died of a stoke at the age of 61, she also was a heavy smoker and had high blood pressure but wouldn't take her medication. My father died at the age of 63 of emphysema. He too was a heavy smoker and also for the last 10 years of his life worked in a West Virginia coal mine.

    Perhaps this women was a heavy smoker as well or was in an environment around a lot of smokers.

    Sometimes there is NO understanding why some get cancer and some don't. A friend of mine, who is now 84. has been a HEAVY smoker since she was a teenager, and never had cancer. She's a retired nurse on top of that, and ought to know better. I've lived a relatively healthy lifestyle, just slightly overweight in the past 15 years, never smoked, my parents never smoked, a rare drinker, etc. And this year had a bi-lateral masectomy. Cancer in one breast was due to too much estrogen for my age, and the other was ductile. Chemo was a nightmare. The doctors said they'd never seen a patient who's body had such a violent reaction to the chemo. I was on numerous drugs for stop the vomiting and diahhrea, and had to go to the ER every 2 to 3 days for IV fluids because I was constantly dehydrated. There's no explanation for it. I now see those commercials for St Jude's and Shriners, and I can't imagine children going through the hell I went through this year, or being a parent and seeing my child go through it.

    Maybe, but the smoking/breast cancer link is one of the few that is iffy.
