    Hadlee's health

    The great man is recovering from bowel cancer surgery. This is a major killer in NZ, so here's hoping and praying that all is okay.

    Hoping he makes a full recovery.

    In fact, I hope he does so well that he recovers enough to take a lot of second innings wickets.

    If so is there a reason?

    More so here in NZ and here than the US and UK. I have a theory that itís because thereís less water in the toilet bowl here than in those countries.

    I think this theory deserves a full exposition in a thread of its own.

    High meat consumption (we've got one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world as a result).

    Amongst cancers bowel is our 2nd biggest killer behind lung cancer, but there are more public health messages about breast, skin and prostate cancers.

    I can explain it in one post.

    So you go to the States or the UK, and the brasco has so much water in it that there's just no escaping the fact all your pooticles are on display (assuming an average level of floatation for said pooticles). So you're more likely to notice abnormalities over time in the US or UK than here, where there is far less water in the brasco and therefore a larger proportion of your pooticles end up on the other side of the bottom of the bowl and out of sight.

    I realize this isn't a particularly pleasant thing to discuss, but I believe it's a factor in bowel cancer rates between countries which have similar dietary habits.

    This is a very similar tale to here as well. A campaign has just kicked off over here on TV to encourage bowel cancer screening. Apparently it's quite a slow developing cancer compared with a number of others, so it can generally be treated if it's picked up (just going by what I've heard on that btw, not that I've looked up research).

    I think that may be the case, but I've generally gained the impression that it's often only picked up when it's too late.

    Anyway, I wish Sir Richard the best of luck.

    Recommend getting yearly colonoscopies over the age of 35 tbh, but so few people are actually going to do that

    So there is now a fair chance that arguably the two greatest fast bowlers ever could die from the same illness. At least Hadlee has made it to a decent, if not exactly old, vintage.

    Best wishes for a full recovery.

    Interestingly the rates are much higher amongst NZers of European descent (Pakeha) than Maori and Pacific Islanders despite higher average socio-economic backgrounds and probably higher consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables. There could be genetic factors at play too.

    If there were genetic factors at play to explain the much higher bowel cancer rates amongst NZers of European descent, wouldn't one expect bowel cancer rates to also be high among those of European descent still living in Europe?

    It would be interesting to compare that with Germany, where I believe they have viewing platforms in their bowls.
