This Al Jazeera headline provides more evidence that the West is winning hearts and minds in the Middle East:

Obese at greater risk from prostrate cancer

  2. I printed off a 100% legit article which showed that guys who ejaculate at least 5 times a week are at a significantly reduced risk of prostate cancer. After the wife stopped laughing she bought me an industrial sized can of KY

  3. Now that’s taking things in hand.
