Some Cancer Wisdom from The West Wing

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I absolutely LOVE The West Wing.  In one episode (in which the Surgeon General declared marijuana to be relatively harmless), the following exchange takes place:

“Let me ask you this: red meat has been found to cause cancer in white rats.

“Maraschino cherries has been found to cause cancer in white rats.

“Cellular phones has been found to cause cancer in white rats.

“Has anyone examined the possibility that cancer might be hereditary in white rats?”
