You Don't Know the Power of the Darkside!

This is the most compelling reason for joining the Dark Side of the Force yet. Apparently the Dark Side has the power to destroy prostate cancer! Ha ha, take that prostate cancer!

All joking aside, I'm very happy to hear that David Prowse is recovering from triumphing over this deadly illness. The UK Mirror reported yesterday:

Darth Vader star David Prowse yesterday spoke of his joy at winning his year-long battle with prostate cancer. Star Wars actor David, 74, who played the 6ft 6in villain in the first three films, got the all-clear last month. The former body-builder - and TV's Green Cross Code - stunned doctors by making a full recovery after intensive radiotherapy at London's Royal Marsden Hospital. Speaking from his home in Croydon, Surrey, David said: "I've won the fight and I'm feeling better than ever. Everyone was shocked by how well it all went." David admits he was lucky to be diagnosed early after a Prostate Cancer Support Association worker urged him to ask his GP for a blood test. Now David, whose brother also beat the disease, advises men over 50 to get tested. He said: "I've had people saying I've saved their lives. I got the same with the Green Cross Code, it's happening again."

Congratulations David! And may the force be with you.
