I recently read that working while your laptop is on your lap on your thighs (as I am doing right now) can lead to prostate cancer.

Has anyone heard this?

Never heard of this, virtually everything these days is thought to be linked to cancer, just more hype, so I wouldnt worry. More importantly is making sure you know about cancer screening services so should the worst happen you can do something about it.

There IS a relationship between latops and not anymore producing or less producing of sperm I believe. The laptop sends heat and that heat makes your balls or at least that area do somethings that are not healthy. I really don't have much info about this but I do know: DON'T put your laptop at your lap all day!

seriously now. everything that we do in everyday life will somehow contribute to our death. you want to not die from stuff like that then become a mormon or amish. life's too short to care about what is going to kill you and how...

So you become a Mormon and one of the wives gets jealous. She cuts your balls off and you bleed to death.

Or become an Amish and the pony kicks you in the orchestras and you either haemmohrage or bleed to death.

So how are you safer?  Insane

Guys, hate to tell you this, but it has been pretty much proven that longevity and prostate cancer are inexorably linked. Seems that almost 100% of you will develop the disease by the time you're in your late 70s. Big drag, huh?

Sorry about that. But it does point to one almost surefire way to avoid it--commit suicide NOW, before you can be struck down. It's also a great way to avoid the ill effects of pseudo-science.  Insane

Hope this helps,

You are mixing up Benign Hypertrophy of the Prostate with Prostate cancer. 80% of men will develop the benign form of the disease.
