I fall into both of the last two reports, balding by 18 and the Ring Finger longer than the Index Finger.

Once you got what you got----statistics go out the window----------------so much for all those tomatoes I ate growing up(Italian)----so much for never being overweight------so much for never smoking-------------get my drift!

Statistics are mis-leading-- cause way to much worry---- and are only statistics.

But I will say this, if you are living a healthy life---your chances are better when you actually do get diagnosed with something.

I say all this not to offend, only to iterate that after going through what I did, and what I continue to be challenged with, statistics just tick me off.

I hear you. I do think, however, that if the stats help encourage one more man to check out his situation and become aware of his condition, then perhaps they were worth it.
