I love that they use the astrological symbol (of which I am one) Cancer to represent the disease. We cancerians are killers I tells ya.

On the up-side, it's nice to know that over 35 is "the prime of life".

Not that I ever doubted it, of course.

Well. Hmmm. I've never had cancer...

But I've had crabs.

I was all of 22. That was definitely the 'prime of my life.' Just saying.

The thing that really got me about these was how alarmist they are! The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Plus you're right about the crab image. Maybe it means step away from the carcinogenic shellfish? Who can say? A cutionary tale nonetheless.
