I am all for fighting breast cancer..but where is the support for eradicating prostate cancer? You can get every product under the sun in pink, but I have only heard of one or two products that donate to prostate cancer research.

Agreed.

Perhaps it's because more women die of breast cancer than men die of prostate cancer?

Or perhaps it's because men can get breast cancer too, but women cannot get prostate cancer?

I think its because of hidden guilt that society has placed on males for being male. The pro-feminist viewpoint is very prevalent in newspapers today, IMO.

I read an article in this week's Georgia Strait about prostate cancer.

http://www.straight.com/article-1996...exual-activity

Stats Canada says in 2005, there were more new cases of prostate cancer than breast cancer in women.
