    For dear old Freako, this is a study that links the incidence of lung cancer to elevation.

    The higher up you live, the less likely you are to get lung cancer.

    I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful. [Christopher Hitchens]
