With hesitancy

One of my close buddies in college lost his mum rather early. Breast cancer. At that time, I remember reading that it was a disease Parsi women were more likely to contract than other women. Recently - Sunday, I think it was - I remember reading that a study suggested that lots of French Fries eaten in their youth gave women higher breast cancer risks. (Can't remember which paper, but Google news lists quite a few variations on the theme.)

Now, am I being weird and unscientific and generalising too much, or is it not a fact that Parsis eat a lot of sali, which admittedly aren't pre-processed, but still as close to French fries as you can get without visiting McD's?
