I don't believe it: You're 20 and too young to have really grasped the extent of deception in this world. Most physicians think that the "scientific studies" showing a link between cancer and talcum powder are the result of recall bias -- ask a question the right way, and you'll get results that aren't true. If you believe all the scare stuff online and from lawyers, you'll end up unable to do anything.
