Cancer Mysteriously Ravages German Village


www.spiegel.de

Cancer has struck nearly every household in Wewelsfleth, a village of 1,500 inhabitants in northwest Germany near the mouth of the Elbe River. Residents feel not only cursed, but also abandoned by authorities in their search for an elusive answer.

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.

Wow, that is one hell of a "localised" problem. It must surely be some industrial effluent of some kind. I hope they find the cause soon. Germany, like other western countries in Europe has many mining, refining and production industries and many of those use fairly nasty and dangerous chemicals and processes. When handled incorrectly or when accidents happen,,,

Question: WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU NOT MOVE?

Jezus [sic] seems more and more scenarios that one might see in a movie are happening in real life. I am at a loss for words on this, and thinking about it, what ever the cause, if it happens somewhere (anywhere) it can happen here. If they are not getting help after they ask, to figure out what's been causing it, it leaves me to speculate, there is some hidden interest in not allowing the truth to be revealed.

...It actually kind of pisses me off smh

Mother1138,
This is a very horrid and scary story, I can not help but feel for them. But while I feel for them I get a feeling in my gut and I know others intuitions on here have to be suspective too, that this is not an accident? There is no way a whole town comes down with cancer just out of thin air, this has to mean an accumulation of radiation in this area, or other pollutants or things and maybe they have become product of their environment..which says a lot for our environment. Frankly this scares me and it makes me wonder if they were exposed to something via chemtrail or air , ie radiation, obscene amounts of barium, and every daily thing that causes health problems like fluoride in water etc.. I feel like this was brought upon them, and caused by things unknown..well by things few know. And I am determined to find out. Does anyone else see how extremely fishy this is? I wonder how many rural areas have mass amounts of cancer in the population that we just do not know of yet. How can such a large place all be sick with such a deadly disease.. I just feel sometimes things like cancer, Alzheimer's etc, are not just coincidences..
Thank you for the thread and knowledge ! Even though it is unfortunate :/

Because it's a silent killer. You don't just wake up one day and say, "Oh, I feel I've come down with cancer this morning." Plus it's a small village to begin with.

If outsiders like us know the town is hazardous then I imagine the people of the town know also.
Unless they're pulling a Japan by telling them everything is safe to maintain a sustainable economy.

Do they happen to live under strong live power lines?

That often causes such outbreaks.

If there were endemic areas of cancer in the US, we would never know about them. Medical records are confidential..makes a census difficult. pretty convenient for the TPTB.

Good catch on this. It's very scary to say the least.

If I had to guess, I'd say it was maybe from several localized events from the past, like spraying a particularly nasty pesticide for a week or so years ago, add a strong breeze and then just give it time. Lung and esophageal cancer would lead me to believe the contaminant was inhaled and/or ingested somehow?

Well heres a thought, perhaps this amount of cancer is somewhat statistically *normal*nowdays, the quote said:

"Between 1998 and 2008, some 142 new cases were reported", that's roughly 14 per year out of approx 1500 residents, roughly 1% or so new yearly, to me that *seems* LOW, I have to wonder if it's much higher in many other areas of the world. (like certain areas of some U.S. cities/)

Not downplaying this, in fact the opposite, with all the assaults on the human body today I'm actually surprised it is 'only' 1% per year I would have expected it much higher. (But also this is 'reported' cases, wonder how many go unreported.)

Yes too, it's higher than it's neighbor with *only* 95 new reported cases, but I wonder how this ranks on a much larger time frame and compared to a much larger grouping of towns/cities. Alot of times when you look at data (stock market etc,) obviously when there are alot more data points over a wider range the peaks and valley's flatten out. Again not downplaying the story, just trying to see the whole picture, and yes cancer Imo is a MAJOR problem and strikes many we (and I) know personally).

I remember an article / thread sometime back that talked about several European countries detecting radiation over normal levels. Im not sure if they ever figured out the source.

ETA - Here is the ATS thread

This German incident reminds me of the scene out of the movie Sum of All Fears. Local tribesmen recover the nuke from a downed Israeli plane during the 6 day war. The people who handled it started dropping like flys.

Ok, I did a check of the CDC site (no way to know how accurate {or honest} it is) but here are some numbers (for a random year) and a link for comparison purposes to the OP to what is found (reported) in the USA:


Among U.S. men in 2007 (the most recent year for which statistics are available), black men were diagnosed with cancer most often, at a rate of 598.5 per 100,000. White men had the second highest incidence rate at 533.1 per 100,000, followed by Hispanic* men at 400.5, Asian/Pacific Islander men at 318.7, and American Indian/Alaska Native men at 290.0.2

Among U.S. women in 2007, white women were diagnosed with cancer most often at a rate of 412.5 per 100,000, followed by black women at 387.7, Hispanic* women at 318.3, Asian/Pacific Islander women at 276.2, and American Indian/Alaska Native women at 252.6.

Oooop, had the death data for the year, corrected and reposted incidence data.

I live near there

It was reported several times. Especially about the plant in Brunsbüttel and its connection to leukaemia.
But they always play it down.

Its odd, that there are no german news about it.
Spiegel, as a german news source, writes only an english article

Your comment made me remember -
Critical Shortage of Children's Leukemia Drug - Feb 2012

Shortage of cancer drugs hits Atlanta - Aug 2011

Fake Cancer Drug Found in U.S. - 2012

Not to stoke the conspiracy theory but does anyone else find this "weird"? There have been reported spikes in Esophageal cancer as well as prostate cancer. Then again all of this may be the result of advances in technology, catching cancer with thew technology where the old tech may have missed it.

I almost guarantee they need to test the towns Water.


Only time it gets in every house, is when it comes in through the water.
