Thanks, I'll keep the job I have

New Scientist magazine reports that working with manure can drastically reduce chances of developing lung cancer. Dairy farmers are five times less likely than the general populace to develop the disease. The study found farmers typically breathed in dust that consisted largely of dried manure, and all the bacteria that grew in it. New Scientist said adults who had a greater exposure to germs than usual might build up a better resistance to bugs, including cancer. Source: Daily Telegraph Photo: "Cow butt" uploaded by sarae
