Surely, there must be a special place in Hell…

February 15, 2013

for the executives of the big corporation who through their lobbyists and huge monetary expenditures thwart the rules of agencies set up to protect the health of the American people. Read on the PBS Newshour site the shameful ways big business tries to protect its bottom line at the risk of your health and the many whom we know are battling cancer or who have lost the battle.

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”

July 31, 2012

I spent 2 1/2 hours on the phone with a Geek Squad nerd yesterday in an effort to get my e-mail fixed to no avail. I was feeling a bit down after the failed effort until I received the below link from Dennis V. After watching the video of the upbeat kids who have a reason to be down but not even letting the big “C” bring them down I thought how foolish I am to allow some dumb “0’s” and “1’s” get the best of me. Thanks Dennis for the link and I will pray for those tough, brave wonderful kids. God please be with the kids in the video and help the doctors cure their terrible disease – Ron

We live in a sea of carcinogens

April 19, 2012

 I am reading “A Civil Action” based on a true court case about some companies that polluted the wells of a small town resulting in quite a few deaths and many sick people. Below the defendant’s  lawyer is deposing the plaintiffs in hopes of finding something else to blame their misery on. What struck me was the exhaustive list of everyday products that contain carcinogens. Below is just a small sample of the list of 500 the defending lawyers questioned the plaintiffs about – Ron Jackson:

“Schlichtmann felt it necessary to attend all of those depositions to defend his clients. There were nineteen of them—they included all of the parents and five of the oldest children—and most of them took an entire day. For three weeks Facher and Cheeseman and their assistants questioned the families closely about their use of more than five hundred brand-name household products—cleaning agents and detergents, rug shampoos, cosmetics, nail-polish removers, insect repellents, paints, lawn fertilizers, cold remedies, cough syrups, herbal teas, coffee, even peanut butter. To Schlichtmann, the strategy behind this exhaustive list was obvious.”

” These five hundred items all allegedly contained a known or suspected carcinogen. Peanut butter, for example, ranked high on the list, right up with cigarettes. The reason: all peanut butter contains trace amounts of aflatoxin B1, a natural but potent liver carcinogen produced by a common peanut mold. His complaints had no effect. Do you eat bacon? one of Facher’s associates asked yet another of Schlichtmann’s clients. (Bacon contains dimethylnitrosamine, a carcinogen.) How often? How many slices? Do you fry it or bake it? Do you have Teflon pans? (Teflon is made of a resin containing acrylonitrile, a carcinogen.) How often do you use them? Do you chew sugarless gum? (Saccharin, a carcinogen in mice.) How often? Do you pump your own gas? (Benzene, a leukemogen.) How often do you bathe? Do you have plastic shower curtains? (Vinyl chloride, a liver carcinogen.) Have you ever owned a cat? (Feline leukemia virus.) Do you drink beer? (Nitrosamines.) Do you use a deodorant? (Aluminum chlorohydrate.)”
