HE DOES A LOT OF GOOD WORK FOR CHARITY, BUT IT'S BEST IF HE DOESN'T TALK ABOUT IT

While it's great that Ronan Keating raises lots of cash to help fund research into breast cancer, it might be a good idea for someone to take him to one side and suggest it might be best if he leaves the expert stuff to, well, an expert, as his reaction to the Kylie news shows:

"Kylie's such a young woman it's unbelievable[..]
People think breast cancer is an older woman's disease, but it's not. Everyone needs to be very aware of this and get regular check-ups.


So, if everyone needs to be aware that breast cancer does affect young women - as many as one in every twenty cases is a woman under the age of 40 - in what way does suggesting that Kylie having breast cancer is "unbelievable" because she's "such a young woman"? Isn't the most positive thing that can come out of Kylie's illness that it's a strong chance to press the case that it's all too believable that women in their 30s get breast cancer and should be checking themselves?
