Cancer causes “bombarding” Americans: experts

Pollution, medical imaging scans, and other causes to blame


 

As many as two-thirds of cancers are caused by lifestyle choices like smoking, bad diet and not getting enough exercise, according to a U.S. presidential panel of cancer advisers. However, many avoidable cancers result from pollution, radon in the soil and medical imaging scans, they said. Little is known about the risk, if any, posed by cellphones, so the panel advised people to consider wearing headsets and limiting themselves to quick calls. The American Cancer Society said the report didn’t focus enough on known risks that cause most cases of cancer, like tobacco, obesity, infections, alcohol, hormones and sunlight, Reuters reports, calling it “most provocative when it restates hypotheses as if they were established facts. For example, its conclusion that ‘the true burden of environmentally (pollution) induced cancer has been grossly underestimated’ does not represent scientific consensus. Rather, it reflects one side of a scientific debate that has continued for almost 30 years,” the group’s Dr. Michael Thun said in a statement.

  1. I agree that fluoride in our water is nothing short of forced medication on the population. Look at any manufacturer container for any of these fluoride chemicals and the warning label tells it all. These chemicals are highly corrosive and poisonous and certainly should not be purposefully put into people's drinking water at any level. People have been scammed by the media and dental professions into brushing any negative mention of fluoride to the side and thinking it is only some idea thought of by crazy people. Everyone should take a serious look at this issue.. do a google image search on fluouride and read the label on a container of this stuff, do a google search on fluoride material safety data sheet and read the toxicology section. Its absolutely poisonous. Why would anyone want to put any amount of a highly corrosive poisonous substance into their body?
