Re: Cancer Cluster


Cancer cluster is a term that those who wish to hide the truth seem to avoid or manipulate to their own agenda.

That is the very reason we have called the streets riddled with cancer here in our community patterns of cancers.

When you get into that cluster conversation, you lose. They will always find some way to deny clustering, regardless of what we see with our own eyes.

Waste Management paid for a cancer "expert" to say there were no cancer clusters here. In July, we wrote to her asking her to define cancer cluster and asked her to tell us if she ever determined a cancer cluster was anywhere and if so where. NO RESPONSE!!!!

I suggest that you write to the PA Health Department and ask them what they call a cancer cluster and if they ever determined that one exists and if so where. Get your answer and writing. If you get an answer please send us their reponse. We are going to do that shortly too.

Re: Cancer Cluster

Having a hard time finding information also. Dothan, Alabama is called a hot spot. Too many people I know are ending up with cancer too young.A famous Cancer Center in Texas told me too many of his patients come from this area. Does anyone know of any research ever done on this ? We have nuclear plant, pestisides etc...

Re: Re: Cancer Cluster

I would suggest you do what ACE has done. Design a health symptom survey based on the kinds of health effects your research has told you could come from the pesticides and radiation. Take it door to door on door in bags with handles. Then get a map to chart the cancers and other illnesses when you get your surveys back.
