This is a rather heart-breaking story, and I dare say that it makes the situation at Le Roy school look petty. People living in Wewelsfleth are 50 percent more likely to have cancer than people in other communities in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein.
Cancer cases began back in 1998, and it's escalated dramatically. Today, nearly every household in this German city has cancer.
The Mayor has lost two wives to cancer, and is demanding a genuine investigation from the federal health officials.
At this time, people can only speculate as to a cause. It might be the 3 nuclear power plants in the area; or maybe it's a nearby shipyard that has
sprayed vessels down with a toxic substance.
The story is both creepy and heart-breaking.
