Dead people walking...

There is a one in a million lifetime risk of death from:

• Cancer if you smoke 1.4 cigarettes
• Cancer if you eat 100 charcoal broiled steaks
• Air pollution if you spend 2 days in New York City
• An accident if you drive 40 miles in a car
• An accident if you fly 2500 miles in a jet
• Drowning if you canoe for six minutes
• Cancer if you receive 10 mrem of radiation, which is equivalent to the dose of radiation received from two coast-to-coast, roundtrip, airline flights. To place that dose in context, the average person in the United States receives 360 mrem a year of radiation dose from natural sources.

1. Eschew canoes, jet planes and New York City

and you can safely increase consumption of char-broiled beef. Seems fair.

2. I'll take that deal!

I'm sure there are other "sacrifices" I can make in order to increase my intake of char-broiled goodness!
