In the news is this story that people living near Fort Detrick in Maryland are developing liver, bone, and endocrine cancers at younger ages.

I wonder why?

Could it have anything to do with environmental toxins.

….Two and a half years ago, Randy White’s daughter Kristen was diagnosed with brain cancer. She went through chemo, radiation and three brain biopsies, but nothing worked. Just 30 years old, she died in his house, in his arms.

“She was never sick a day in her life” before the cancer, White told AOL News.

Just two months after he had buried Kristen, White’s other daughter, Angie, was diagnosed with a highly abnormal stomach cancer, which doctors were able to successfully remove. But six weeks later, his ex-wife took a fall that revealed an advanced renal cell cancer. According to White, the doctors at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla., told them that these cases didn’t look genetic — they were environmental.

White, a preacher from Tampa, didn’t have to look far. He had raised his children in Frederick, Md., where people have struggled with groundwater contamination for years. Also, some residents remembered nearby Fort Detrick had tested the chemical defoliant known as Agent Orange in the late 1960s and ’70s….(just

The Maryland’s Department of Health said that they will investigate why people living near the base are dying of cancer earlier.

…Clifford Mitchell of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said Monday that investigators will probe deeper into the discrepancies involving liver, bone and endocrine cancers.

The most marked difference involves liver cancer. The median diagnosis age among people living near the Army installation from 2000 to 2007 was 55 versus 65 statewide.

Mitchell says researchers will examine the cases in greater detail and look at others as far back as 1992.

The investigation reflects concerns about Agent Orange testing and industrial chemical dumping at Fort Detrick decades ago….(redacted news)

People are now dropping like flies from the alarming outbreak of cancer which is now the number one cause of death.

…The American Cancer Society’s 2005 statistical report shows that, for the first time, cancer kills more Americans under age 85 than does heart disease….(cancer prevention)

Could there be a relation to the alarming outbreak of cancer worldwide and the mass deaths of the birds, bees, fish, and all other manner of critters?

Nah, it is probably just a coincidence.

    I honestly think it is a very long stretch to try and link this issue to the current phenomenon.

    Good job on the article. Although the environmental cancer issue around the base is an issue, I don’t see it popping up all over the world like this. The evidence talks about 2 people, meanwhile the numbers for birds and other creatures combined are in the millions now.

    something is going on.

    no mystery there….

    Book of: Zephaniah – Old Testament
    Chapter 1, Verse 3
    I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.

    nobody ever mentions the FLIES :(

    This article is crap but cancer is a result of products all around us.

    Yellow #5 and Red # whatevers
    All the processed food chemicals
    Possibly electronics
    pollution in water

    A lot of stuff most people wont be able to avoid. Cancer rates will continue to soar. Of course they will “treat” you until the day you die… Profits Profits Profits.

    Cancer should have had a cure by now. End of story.

    Egyptian mummies were shown to have NO cancers. We know that 100.000 synthetic chemicals – OF WHICH 7 (seven) are researched for toxcity are in circulation in the society. OF COURSE they are the cause of cancers-just like all the other chemicals have been proven to be dangerous to man,animal and plants.

    Yes two is too small a number but yes the mummies were shown to not have cancer. There are many reasons for the expected increase in cancer including sunblock ( prevent Vit D, has nanoparticles) many many environmental toxins,iron fortified food and pregnant women taking huge amounts of iron. athletes (men) taking iron (it is a carcinogen but not listed as when the Delany amendment was passed by congress it was in too many foods) and the huge use of nanoparticles in so many things in cluding food and clothing. Silver nanoparticle will kill fish. In a normal ionic form they do not are a good antibiotic.Then of course of course the unseen electronic smog; GM foods ………….could go on all day.

    The 2 were just an example of what was happening. If you read a little further you will see that the Department of Health was investigating the outbreak of those dying at younger ages within the population.

    Let’s look at some possible causes of the world wide phenomenon of mass animal deaths. Is this our canary in the coal mine?

    1. Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) for natural gas, affects air and water and includes extremely poisonous and toxic chemicals and is happening all over America, and Europe and other countries. I highly recommend that you watch http://www­.gaslandth­ The “new and improved” fracking is brought to us by none other than Halliburto­n.

    2. Chemtrails­…not to be confused with Contrails. A Contrail from a plane vaporizes and disappears less than an hour. Contrails are a gift from scientist to alter the weather and includes in the mix chemicals, aluminum and plastic particles that are being sprayed in the air by small aircraft. You have seen them…The­y are the giant, weird looking vapor trails from airplanes that last all day and sometimes into the next day. They frequently look like giant X’s as the pilots seem to get a kick out of making designs. Guess what, we get to breathe this concoction and it also ends up in our water supplies.

    3. H.A.A.R.P. is a group of government scientist and they are continuous­ly accused of things: http://www­­m/articles­/haarp-con­­ml. Seeing that Fracking and Chemtrails are a fact, I cannot exclude HAARP from this list.

    4. Polar shifting..­.it is a long shot, but, hey, I am throwing it into the mix.

    This $h!t has to stop!

    Myra Rosa: I think you are forgetting possibly the gigantic hole in our electromagnetic atmosphere which is letting in large amounts of solar wind. Just throwing that out there as well.

    no link at all between the 2. USA water is really the worst, smells like swimming pool water, full of bleach and chemicals.
    My friends young son, looked so healthy, drank and bathed in that water, then died at age 26 of lymphoma…
