Celebrities and cancer causation

Sarah Parkinson apparently floated the idea that her breast cancer was linked to IVF treatment. However, this article suggests that there is little basis for a connection.

I wish somebody, somewhere, would just make this point about Roy Castle and passive smoking. Just because he played in smoky clubs for much of his career doesn't mean smoking caused his cancer. Lung cancer among non-smokers is relatively rare, but some people still get it. But it's been a useful tool to beat those defending the right to smoke in public places.
