      Very interesting cyberwriter. I didn't know about 2 or 3. Staying up all night does make sense though, because I notice it does something to your body after awhile which is why I try to not do it. But eating too much and getting breast cancer either is intriguing. I guess eating meat should be done with careful consideration. Thank you so much for this valuable information.
