This is the stupidest article I've read all week. I wish I could determine whether the blame lies with the reporter or with the researchers.

draypresct: FTA:

"Children physically abused, including spanking".

In other words, if you put kids who have been spanked into a group that includes much more severely abused kids, the group as a whole has much higher risk of a number of health problems than children not in that group.

Next up: People who drink, including both massive alcoholics and people who have 1 drink/year, are at a higher risk of liver disease than non-drinkers. Therefore, having 1 drink a year raises your risk of liver cancer.


So much truth to this.

Speaking as someone who was physically abused as a child, your average spanking has nothing to do with actual child abuse. Every time I overhear someone equating a spanking with child abuse, I immediately start chewing them out, listing a bunch of things that *are* child abuse:
- Getting thrown across the room, because your stepfather tripped over one of your toys
- Having your head smashed into a plaster wall
- Having your butt beat with a belt so hard you start bleeding
- Getting picked up and choked until you passed out, because you talked back to him.
- Having small, sharp, heavy objects (such as jars, dishes, lamps, etc) whipped at you.
- Being forced to watch your drunken stepfather beat your mom to a bloody pulp

And I tell these people flat out, that "If you have never experienced those things, and don't know anyone who has, then you don;'t know Jack Shiat about what abuse is. Now shut the fark up!"

Well, let's remember that Saudi Arabian spanking is probably not exactly the same thing as most American spanking.

You mean hurting someone might cause harm? Shocking. Whether or not it causes cancer, violence towards children should not be acceptable. If anyone here spoke in favor of hitting or smacking their spouse, dog or cat there would be outrage. A child should not be subject to harm that is illegal when perpetrated against any other living creature, simply because it is "traditional." In addition, spanking is demonstrated to be ineffective as a discipline strategy. The fact that many children survive severe abuse is not a justification for minor abuse, both are wrong.

loveblondieo: Damn, my husband gave me some cancer the other night.


Favorited.

I swear, I was spanked a ton as a kid and I turned out fine. I despair for my generation. They don't understand consequences or working for what you have, or the meaning of the word EARN.

And if stress is linked to cancer, we're all doomed anyway.

Correlation does not equal causation..

But, generally, those from the lower socioeconomic classes (rednecks) who would tend to view violence as a solution, and therefore consider corporeal punishment 'normal' and tend to use tobacco in the house more rather than smoke outside, exposing their kids to secondhand smoke ergo cancer for the poor kids.

And here in Castle Anthrax, we have but one punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon... cancer. 

I think I must have cast off about as million knuckle orphans pretending I was Galahad being offered all those spankings.

A 250 person study of abused Saudi people? Perhaps the petroleum pollution in the area would be a better indicator...just sayin'. Wonder if the study was done on their women...if anything would cause stress-induced cancer it would be their treatment of women.
