"Traditionally, we reduce cancer risks through regular doctor visits,
self-examinations and screenings such as mammograms. The President's Cancer
Panel suggests other eye-opening steps as well, such as giving preference to
organic food, checking radon levels in the home and microwaving food in
glass containers rather than plastic."

Interesting, especially the part about organic food.

More interesting was the recommendation to filter tap water, something
that points out the bogus arguments of the anti-bottled water fad
dimwits.
