Biff Naked has Breast Cancer

National Newswatch links to an article this morning that reveals singer Biff Naked has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer. What gets my goat is how the article mentions that Biff had been living "a healthy lifestyle, working out regularly and maintaining a vegan diet." While living a healthy lifestyle is always a good thing (and I don't know why the reporter assumed that a vegan diet was more healthy than a regular diet), people should know that cancer doesn't care what kind of 'healthy lifestyle' you lead - just ask Lance Armstrong. All it takes is a mutation in one cell for a cancer to develop, and that can happen whether you're a couch potato or an Olympic athlete.

Here's hoping her treatment goes well - breast cancer can be very manageable nowadays, thankfully.
