Have put all white bread in next door neighbour's bin, just to be on the safe side. I'm certain that she, her mother, seventeen sisters and forty two daughters will be fine.
Are you sure 50m is going to be a sufficient distance......... just a bit worried now...........
Now I am stressed........ and I was feeling quite calm after reading the thread, knowing that I had contributed quite excessively to my bc........
Hi SJ, yes to all the above but WHITE bread...nooo don't do it!
Wrap bread in newspaper, preferably the Daily Express and place, gently, in dustbin..at least 50 metres from house. Just to be on the safe side. xx
Have just found this thread, and am nearly wetting myself!!
Obviously, I have taken all the information from the various posts on board, and tonight will be:
Eating chocolate and smoked bacon sarnies (white bread)
Drinking at least 3 bottles of wine
Well, don't even mention the number of fags I shall smoke.
I also love the link to the Daily Mash - had forgotten about this online treasure........
Keep em coming
Yours in laughter and delayed enlightenment
Oh that's one enlightening link 😉 I have hoovered the house from top to bottom and I'm now hoovering garden, shed etc. Just done a ten mile walk to the off licence and have binned the bacon. xx

Lol, this really made me laugh.
Thought I'd post so others can see it and start their day with a smile!!
Thank you No1Mummy,
Love Chanel no.5 but think I was wearing No. 19 Still wearing Hunter blue Wellies though and talking to a cow. Jackie
So you were under a pylon,having a conversation with a cow while wearing Chanel nos 5 lol, i hadnt even thought of the Chanel nos 5, thats my perfume too!!
The plot thickens, mabe it wasnt the yellow wellies after all!
Oh my giddy aunt... how funny, thank you! xxx
AND there I was walking down Oxford St yesterday when I saw in Selfridges window a display of multi coloured wellies all colours none were yellow.Have they read this post??Crikey took me ages to find it. Now as I have a friend over from NZ she is taking this 'research' back with her too.No wearing yellow wellies on either hemisphere.I still think standing under a pylon and wearing underwired bra are to blame. Jackie
I've goggled him, Ben Goldacre, and sent him a short email with links!
Thanks everyone, very funny. And yes someone should send it to the Daily Mail and that journalist from the Guardian (Ben ??acre).
omg I was that women Sue ! Nice to see you again ! There must have be a load of us standing under various pylons around the country in our wellies....I think this bc milarky must just be highly contageous.....
Am loving this thread !
One day in the late 1980's I can definitely remember driving past a woman who was standing underneath a pylon dressed in a neon pink flannelette nightie. I did have to look in the rearview mirror to check that it was actually a cow that she was talking to, but I can distinctly recall the strong aroma of Chanel Number 5 as I passed by. I was driving an open-top purple Triumph Spitfire at the time, which obviously explains my BC!!
For trendsetters, like myself, Primark do kitten heel wellies in lemon.
I can't ever remember standing under a pylon talking to cattle whilst wearing an underwired bra but I will have to check my old diaries.
Were they the yellow wellies given out to unsuspecting ladies by the labour party?
No nightie just a few drops of Chanel No. 5 ( but I was standing under a pylon)perhaps it was the yella wellies after all. J
Ha,Ha,Ha this is brilliant
And theres me thinking i got BC because i was standing under a pylon ,talking to a cow,while wearing deodorant and an underwired bra!
Must have been the yellow wellies!!
Love it,this has made my day lol
truffle shuffle how on earth do you smoke a sausage buttie and why only on a Monday teatime !!
Lets go shop for sling back wellie together but hey not Yellow ones !!
and heres me thinking I got it coz I had smoked sausage butties every monday tea time in the 1970s.................thank The lord for good scientific research................just going to buy another pair of sling back wellies now
take care keep smiling xx
Vickie hun, so sorry begging your forgiveness whilst watching x factor extra after recording apprentice. How dare you call him suralan he is now Lord Sugar. So is it you dissing him now !!!!!
No1Mummy has given us all such a laugh today. Thanks.
Karen, hey calm down, no need to diss the cowell or the suralan!
No1mummy this really cheered me up and made me laugh. Thanks for spending time and energy doing it.
oh dear Belinda did you not realise the level of chemicals in a neon nightie and chanel no 5. Research warns us that the possibility of bc raises so much with chemicals.
Read an article last Saturday about how using household cleaners increases the chance of bc. So glad I never bother cleaning and just sit and smoke me fags while glugging on me bottle (or 3) of wine. Not sure why the floor is sticky though !!!!!
Hi Karen, a neon pink flannelette nightie and Chanel Number 5. 😉
did you have pj's on or just yellow wellies. Obviously that would change the balance of the chance of getting breast cancer !!!
No1mummy you have certainly raised a smile today. You are a star. You should be our roving bc reporter !! You make x factor and the apprentice sound boring. Well actually they are. Oh God gonna be shouted at for that !!
Oh dear that will teach me..I used to live, eat, sleep in my favourite yellow wellies. 😉
But where is the usual DM reference to Cheryl Cole?
Cherub pink floral wellies very dodgy lol (wish I ahd some mine are plain old boring blue)Jackie
Cherub, you missed something out - what about all the Mail's "health and safety" stories?! 🙂
OMG, me and my OH read this and were in fits of laughter :-))
What about my wellies? They are pink floral ones - is it safe to wear them on a Friday do you think????
Jings, the Daily Wail gets worse by the day. I suppose if they are writing about BC they are giving asylum seekers, illegal immigrants and benefit chasers a rest. I am never done emailing them about rubbish cancer stories, it has become a cottage industry in my office lol!
Hahaha,really laughed out loud at that.Thank you No1mummy.
Brilliant, well done for giving us such a laugh.
OMG I'll never do gardening again, on a Wednesday, not in any colour wellies, just in case.
Love to you all
Oh how I laughed you've made my day- didn't really throw the wellies away.).)Very funny and very clever but as Alex said dare you send it to the DM? Jackie
I have to confess - I copied it almost word for word from the Daily Mail today (apart from a few minor changes including the wellington boots bit!) To be fair, this is only what the DM seem to do for all their bc articles!
I think the DM must employ a journalist who has specific responsibility for a bc "story" every other day! Drives me nuts (dh buys the paper not me!) Some creative re-drafting was good therapy for me this morning 🙂
Love it!!!! Made me laugh just after reading a sad post. Thank you.
Brilliant! Really made me laugh. Dare you to send it to the Daily Mail!
Ha Ha B****y Ha just to be on the safe side my blue wellies are going in the bin right now -next we know getting wet feet will be singled out as causing BC And I thought my diet, very similar to Karens was the cause lol.Jackie
I think we need more from Bernie Nolan personally
haha - sounds just like the daily mail. thanks for sharing.
so glad to finally know why I have bc. Thought at 1 time it was due to the 40 fags, 3 bottles of wine a night and MCdonalds for breakfast, fish and chips for lunch and a curry for tea, not forgetting the 10 bags of crisps and 3 large bars of chocolate each day !!!!!!!!!!!
Those yellow wellies are going in the BIN right now.
Does the media really think we are stupid.....
Fair enough, but what does Kelly Brook think about it?
Thank you No1Mummy. That made me really laugh!!
Is it April 1st?
Musnt hav any news going on in the world 2day
In today's Daily Mail:
WEARING YELLOW WELLINGTON BOOTS "CAN DOUBLE RISK OF BREAST CANCER"
Wearing yellow wellington boots can double a woman's risk of getting breast cancer, a study claimed today.
Cases of the disease were "clearly higher" in areas with increased levels of yellow wellington boot wearing, researchers said.
Women living in areas with the highest levels of yellow wellington boot wearing were almost twice as likely to develop breast cancer, one of the study's authors said.
Arthur Storey, from the Research Institute of the Nether Herdof University Health Centre in Canada, said "We've been watching breast cancer rates go up for some time. Nobody really knows why, and only about one-third of cases are attributable to known risk factors. Since no-one had studied the connection between wearing yellow wellington boots and breast cancer, we decided to investigate it. We found a link between post-menopausal breast cancer and wearing yellow wellington boots, particularly on a Wednesday. We found that risk increased by about 25% or by the lesser amount of 10% if the yellow wellington boots were only worn on Mondays and Tuesdays."
Dr Storey warned that the disturbing results should be interpreted with 'great caution', adding: "First of all, this doesn't mean that yellow wellington boots cause breast cancer. The key factor appears to be the day of the week on which they are worn and we would advise against wearing any colour of wellington boots on a Wednesday but especially yellow, green and blue."
Dubious breast cancer research stories affect several million newspaper readers each year. Eight out of ten journalists should know better.
