About three years ago, my eldest son passed away from cancer, after a long and torturous five year fight.
During this time, there was much soul searching as to what may have caused the cancer as it was an exceptionally rare form and it appears to be
neither genetic, nor the kind of thing that had any obvious cause.
I did, however, notice and consider all the events in his life (that I knew about) that may potentially have been a 'cause' and I realized that there
are so many carcinogens that are unnecessarily in our environment.
Cigarettes aren't the only issue, Alcohol is a major carcinogen. As are a number of illegal and prescribed drugs. As are many chemicals that are
pervasive in our modern environment. Pthalates to soften plastics. The fuel we put into our cars and therefore spread into the atmosphere. The stuff
we spray on crops (pesticides, fertilizers and hormones - for instance, did you know that they treat many types of plant produce, with hormones that
are dangerous to humans, to make it fruit more frequently and abundantly?) and stuff to 'treat' and drench our livestock with.
We know, on a variable scale, how carcinogenic these substances are, but yet, there is no concerted effort to remove these from the daily contact with
people. In many instances, there are alternatives that are safer, but there is no-one whose role it is to police such things, and so we are surrounded
by potentially dangerous substances almost continually, and the cancer carnage continues.
