Do you know what all South American countries have in common, economic growth. While Europe and the United States have been struggling with an economic meltdown, most of the countries in the southern cone have averaged a 6% growth during the last decade. And do you know what else they have in common, cancer.
Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez, former Brazilian President Lula Da Silva and former Colombian president Alvaro Uribe are all undergoing surgeries or chemotherapy; while Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo and current Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff have recently beaten the disease.
No one knows the cause of the cancer, but something weird is definitely going on in that part of the world. Priests and psychics are working hard to come up with an explanation, with no luck so far.
But Hugo Chavez may have a clue. The man that's ruled Venezuela for over 10 years says it's all a US conspiracy.
He truly believes that the CIA is secretly getting South American leaders sick, even though he has no evidence to back it.
Come on Hugo, a conspiracy?! I guess why we faked the landing on the moon, hid martians in New Mexico and we secretly sent some cancer your way.
