Here's a great study.

Day Care May Lower Childhood Leukemia Risk screams the headline. Story Here.

I read this seeming idiocy and thought for a very short while. HOW can anyone actually think there is a link between any of this stuff?

Then I thought about it logically. I expect that Day Care use over the last 35 years has increased significantly. Therefore, according to these morons, childhood leukemia should have correspondingly decreased sharply. Then I looked up the actual statistics. Here's the graph:

So, according to REAL DATA, childhood cancer has increased significantly over the last 35 years.

We better get these kids into Day Cares even earlier. 'Cause everyone knows that screaming in a crib next to other screaming babies is a sure-fire leukemia vaccination. Maybe a better study would have linked the effects of mothers dumping their kids in daycare to rising cancer rates. NONE OF IT'S RELATED PEOPLE!

Sheesh.

I'm surprised that you bothered to read the study. I swear that more morons pop up every day and they actually think that they're intelligent beings! I really don't believe that most people even pay attention to these studies. I hope not! Isn't it amazing what actually gets media attention?

I've been reading your blog for awhile--I stumbled upon it much by accident. Keep up the good work.

Excellent analysis of the ACTUAL data by 2Evil4U.

There is no anti-Leukemia benefit to daycare.

Instead, there are a lot of problems with daycare...
