Scientists report link between pot and testicular cancer9/10/2012
Here’s some news to worry stoners everywhere. A study published on Monday in the journal Cancer concludes that young dudes who are partial to a bit of weed are increasing their chances of developing testicular cancer. Scientists at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles performed a study of 455 men — some healthy, some with testicular cancer — and discovered that those who had smoked pot were twice as likely to have been diagnosed with testicular germ cell tumors. To add to the gloom, their tumors tended to be faster-growing and tougher to treat. So guys, maybe it’s time to put down the bong and start checking your crotch. [Source]
