Reach for the stars, lose your nuts

Oh no, say it ain't so!
A study by the National Cancer Institute, which analyzed data from 10,000 men, found that every two inches above the average male height of 5-foot-9 increased the risk of getting testicular cancer by 13 percent.
Golly gee, and I was having such a good day before I read about this study. Life isn't fair!
Realistically, the risk is low for all men. Only one in 210 men get testicular cancer, and that represents only 1 percent of male-related cancers.
But still, I like to think it gives the sentence "short guys have balls" a more literal meaning.
