    thinking of lost cancer people

    not sure why, but last night I was thinking of lost coworkers from cancer. these 2 people had pancreatic cancer and passed on about a year prior to me being diagnosed with breast cancer. so many people and family prior to and after my ordeal. what in the world is going on. is it environmental? I grew up in the country where crop dusting was done nearly every week.

      i agree. seems like I hear of more and more friends, co-workers, spouses of friends, passing of cancer. I ask my family a lot,, about why this is happening.. seems it's the foods we eat,, that more are of the processed food situation. As you said,, we'd go out and pull food outta our gardens,, wash it off,, and eat it!. cant do that any more,, Sad.

      I believe it has a lot to do with environmental issues. My husband and I lived on an old apple orchard property that was sold and made into a housing development. Everyone had wells and I think ours was tapped into some bad stuff. He was diagnosed with colon cancer at 54 and died at 56. I was also diagnosed at the same time he was with the very same thing, right down to the location of the tumor. I was 42 at the time and we were otherwise very healthy and active. Somebody has to figure this out!

      Better ways to diagnose; people living longer and into old age; other kinds of diseases that used to kill off more people have been vanquished; larger population; cancers used to not be talked about but now are — some of these may make it appear that there is more cancer than in years past. And I bet that as others said here, environmental issues are causing an actual increase in cancers.
