My and my daughterís sinusitis cares. Like clockwork...

Turns out it was a wee bit more than sinusitis. I got it checked out and theyíre saying I have a nasal polyp basically occupying my entire left maxillary sinus, a less imposing one reaching into my right sinus, and a deviant nasal septum on top of that. I guess I canít blame Korea for *everything*... unless itís the damn air here that brought the polyps about in the first place!

More than 10 million people die every year from a problem that doesnít receive the attention it should.

Doesn't receive the attention it should?!?  Well, not if you read Breitbart and watch Fox News ...

I'm going to regret this, but what does John Stossel have to say?

Check the science.

I guess you still eat sausages, pepperoni and salami, no?

How much heart disease and cancer are you willing to endure for known risky behaviors.

Whatever, tell that to people who are out of work with a family to support.

And yes, I love  sausages, pepperoni and salami. Who doesn't.

Your alcohol consumption helps prevent short-term heart attacks but contributes to long-term cancer development.

Again, look at the science. Bypass health advising websites and parochial physicians.

Do you seriously think sausages, pepperoni and salami are cheaper in any country over beans, lentils, brown rice and throw in onions, garlic (maybe some hot peppers or sweet green bell peppers) and some green leafy veggies with spices of your choice?

Processed meats are a class 1 carcinogen.

You might as well smoke cigarettes.

Wait! You started THIS thread worried about air pollution in Korea but put processed meats into your colon happily?

Weigh your risks.

Look at the relationship between colon cancer and sausages, pepperoni and salami (yummy poisons, like sugar) before you counsel against air pollution. Eh?

"No, processed meat has been classified in the same category as causes of cancer such as tobacco smoking and asbestos (IARC Group 1, carcinogenic to humans), but this does NOT mean that they are all equally dangerous. The IARC classifications describe the strength of the scientific evidence about an agent being a cause of cancer, rather than assessing the level of risk."

Nobody cares.  The wellbeing of your children and family trump everything. That is
why climate change initiatives will fail if they don't compensate up and coming
developing countries for not using cheap coal. So, unless rich countries fork out
to poorer countries, the air is gonna be bad.

Also, how do you equate salami and PM2.5? The former is a personal choice
and the latter is a product of industrialization.

Maybe thereís a problem of most people not knowing just how bad air pollution is.

Had similar problems eventually leading to surgery. Recovery from having the deviated septum corrected was no walk in the park.

Taking out the polyps presents the danger of a too aggressive surgeon cutting into the brain so choose carefully. Good luck!

Turns out yellow dust, the flu, cancer, aids, diabetes, old age, etc donít matter anymore.

Itís like nothing matters except covid, how many suicide deaths are there since the pandemic started? None because if any trace of covid is in the system the death was covid related.

Governments control the people, stay home and listen to us.

Happy anniversary of two week stay at home!!

Actually quite the opposite.

If a patient has a preexisting condition then that will be blamed instead of the virus or vaccine that pushed the patient OVER.THE.CLIFF.

Why the heck is a vaccine being pimped to guys who are old, with heart disease, diabetes and allergies? ... Some of those who died are being explained away by their preexisting conditions. ... Huh? If you have a serious preexisting condition stay the f social distancing away and avoid all risks.

The vaccine like the virus is best handled by the young and healthy. TARGET THEM for herd immunity.

Where?  I know in some states hospitals get more money when they report a Covid death so the pre-existing conditions are ignored and the death is attributed to Covid.  So, quite the opposite to what you wrote.  A neighbour of my dad's had a separate autopsy done for her sister because she questioned Covid as the cause of death.  Turns out the sister was right.  And again from Florida, my dad's 94 year old priest buddy was terminal with an unrelated condition.  He caught a mild case of covid.  He passed away after a few weeks which was long expected.  Cause of death listed?  Covid.
