Hi John,

There are 3 of the leading things that cause cancer. They are 1) Cigarette smoking 2) Breathing benzene and xylene fumes from guess where? You've got the gas pump and 3) Stress. Stress about getting cancer, paying the mortgage, loosing one's job, etc. It is been known and proven that stress causes the increase in cortisol levels in the blood. Cortisol is important because this cortisol is increased in the body for the body's ability to avoid a stressful or emergency situation. An example is running from a bear that is chasing an individual in the woods, or trying to get away from a dog on a bicycle. The old tire repair cement was great. It worked and we used to light it to make it bond better into the rubber. It was simple to use. I fear that there won't be enough paint reducer or epoxy primer left when I get to my paint supplier.When I get ready to paint my bikes in the next several years I believe that I will have to use water based primers and base coats. The green people have had it all removed for fear of messing up our environment and substituted it for water based primers that I understand are horrible where adhesion is concerned. I have a friend who now will not eat chicken, eggs, etc. because she is afraid that the growth inhibitors that are used in chickens feed at the major chicken plants across America is full of cancerous growth hormone chemicals. What do we do, raise our own chickens? I still will not buy a fiberglass bike. Steel lugged frames are the greatest.
