It breaks my heart that she has to publicly announce this. Facing cancer is bad enough without thousands of nosey people trying to figure out what’s going on. She was so relaxed, I hope the public gives her the space she needs now.

People are such heartless jerks. She can't keep this private? Don't you think she'd prefer that her children not have to be exposed to a public reaction to this news? News which the public has no right to?

She accepted responsibility for a public life when she married into the family. That’s that.

Very sad that what so many suspected turned out to be true and the Palace lied to the public when questions were asked. I have to agree with Karl: Kate got the jab (we suppose it was real) in a very public publicity stunt. The turbo cancers happening globally are sad.

You vaccine fabulists are nuts.

Refute us with facts, dear. We have studies on our side and statistics. Bring on the facts to support yours. We will wait.

Link to a peer-reviewed scientific journal article please. Preferably more than one, but even one will probably be difficult.

Why not do your own research like many of us did or has been provided here or other substacks with links to the data? I don't do someone else's homework for them.

Oh no thanks, I don’t need your homework. Here’s a piece of honest-to-goodness information in completely good faith (which your response most definitely was not): single studies cannot be generalized. There have to be many, many studies with comparable results (that can be replicated, which doesn’t happen often enough, unfortunately) that eventually become a more complete picture of a possible answer that could eventually be generalizable. I dislike generalizations without clear evidence more than so many things in the world. For example, if I were to make a generalization about you, I might say that you are conspiratorial in nature and trying to reason won’t do any good. I won’t though. I need more data to make such a declaration.

Oh and here’s a link for you to peep if you’re interested: https://open.substack.com/pub/yourlocalepidemiologist/p/turbo-cancer-is-not-a-thing?r=f0txi&utm_medium=ios

And if you notice the best the “other side” seems to bring to any discussion is name calling. Case in point above. Infantilism.

Infantilism is tiresome. Provide us with data please to support your position.

Saddening. Vaccine related?

Of course not?! Where do you people come from?

Expand full comment

We come from facts and data. You know, empirical evidence (not “The Science”).

No you don’t

For the past 4+ years, talking to American progressives is like communicating with toddlers. Case in point above, @kim.

Says the person calling people names and sounding irrational as hell. Please post a peer-reviewed study from a reputable source proving your point. Because until you do (you won’t because you can’t) you can STFU.

These comments are extremely disheartening

Expand full comment

Why in the world would you find our two comments "extremely disheartening?" Here's the thing: It is horrible she has cancer. Hope everything turns out okay. One the other side: the palace did lie for two months when people just wanted to know what was going on. They fed this feeding frenzy. Keep being gaslit where you believe whatever you are told. When you can't ask a question from a source that is obviously hiding the truth, THAT is the problem. "well, they are entitled to privacy." I guarantee you that if they had been upfront from the beginning all these stories would have not happened.

"turbo cancers are happening globally"

There is no such thing as turbo cancers. Nor is there any evidence of increased cancer rates globally.

Your comment being on yashars blog is indicative of two trends one is substack specific. The other is is just general science denialism.

Both are extremely disheartening.

Go away and think about yourself.

How does it look in the sand with your head down in it? Sadly medical evidence supports my position and refutes yours. Keep denying the truth. That is exactly what they want you to do. Now go away and think about YOURSELF (I swear, you can always tell someones' age by the comments they leave.)

As expected. When pushed to provide evidence.

No such evidence is available

Expand full comment

There is zero evidence for your position. I challenge you to.pist such evidence without linking to a substack blog.

You really need to look inward and question why you'd rather let a conspiracy theory rule your life.

And even more fun, once challenged to present evidence of extraordinary claims....

He blocked me

Expand full comment

"He" blocked you because I know longer have patience for infants. Why not use the brain God gave you and look it up for yourself. And for the record, I'm a female thanks. And find something more productive to do with your life than to troll as an infantile moron. Bye.

They lied? What lie/s did they tell?

Expand full comment

Guess that living under a rock gets boring, huh? Too many people get their news only from headlines. But then that is why we have an entire culture of people who can't use their brains. The gray matter is dead.

Expand full comment

Can’t provide an example then.

Expand full comment

I can, but I am going to let you try to use the brain that God gave you inside your head to research the information yourself since it is there for everyone to see. Let's see how you do. Thanks.

Ok, that’s my point made. Thanks. 🥰
