Cancer risk among Taiwanese female doctors is 2.64 times higher than average

This is the conclusion reached by a study conducted by the Jiayi Christian Hospital on Taiwan.  The study indicates that the risk of getting fourth stage breast cancer and cervical cancer among female doctors on Taiwan is 2.64 times greater than average.  Taiwan’s female doctors also feel embarrassed to have their colleagues perform physical and cancer screening checkups.  Their heavy work load also keeps them from getting regular cancer screening exams.

Advice for cancer patients

Some Taiwanese guy is advising cancer patients to (1) be thankful for the care they receive; (2) do not feel you are responsible for the ills of the world; (3) be grateful and practice retrospective repentance; and (4) smile, because smiling brings on happiness.
