Moderate Exercise Prevents Ovarian Cancer' says the article. If you haven't had ovarian cancer that may motivate you to exercise. Nice. If you have had ovarian cancer [as I have] then it sounds like it was your fault that you got it. Nasty.
I was exercising regularly when I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. In fact, I discovered it myself doing Superman back arches on the floor. That is unusual, since it usually goes undiscovered for a long time.
The first support meeting I went to after surgery presented a speaker who told about how eating vegetables and fruits could prevent cancer. Too late for this audience. I never went back to the group.
I have since learned to forgive these well-intentioned but thoughtless people. Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity.
