♠ FACT: a vast majority (i.e. 80 % or more) of human cancers arepreventable – rather than being genetically imposed. Our lifestyle (smoking/excess drinking), sun damage, inflammatory diets, and environmental toxins are four leading factors for “self-inflicted” cancerous wounds.
♠ FACT: Obesity is a factor in far too many Americans of both genders (14% for men and 20% for women – according to the American Cancer Society). Oy!
In full disclosure, I voted for Richard Nixon. In retrospect, I agree with some experts that we are losing the “WAR on CANCER” which President Nixon declared 35 years ago. This is tragic!

It is quite timely that today, on June 1st, a majority of Americans have been protected with COVID-19 miracle vaccines. I offer my cameo role in thanking our heroic drug developers and first responders with my virtual Hug!
Remember that hugging, OR just thinking about hugging, is a darned good boost to morale in good times and not-so-good times. We are chemical wonders when we can naturally generate OXYTOCIN – that wonderful hormone for peaceful, easy feelings
As hugs can lead to other intimate acts, THANK YOU Juno for helping couples with weddings and fertility. Face-to-face weddings are here – hopefully to stay!
We are social critters, as the past 15-months of suspended COVID animation reinforced. And now we can row, play pickleball, and interact without MASKS! I did a double-take today in today’s pre-dawn hours as NO masks were needed at the Boathouse.
Can you tell that I am excited about this new month? Here are otther reasons for my happy Midsummer Night’s dreams:
The Boys of Summer are soon to play before full crowds in ballparks around our country.
I can set aside my masked man haberdashery for most summer activities
I can help spread the good word for Men’s Health Month
I will wear Blue on June 18th, 2021
I will see my primary care physician in a few weeks – – – coincidental for Men’s Health Month’s mission:
“to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.”
If lucky, I will get a tad spoiled on Father’s Day (Sunday, June 20th), and
We all can celebrate the official first day of Summer on Monday, June 21st. For San Diegans like me, that means that we can revel in 14+ hours of daylight.
Then, let’s all celebrate our Midsummer Night’s Dream on June 24th – which in days of your was the midpoint of growing seasons. YEA for great “VITAMIN P” that is the source of so many vital micronutrients needed to help each of us thrive and strive.
Thank you Juno!
