US GOVERNMENT COVERTLY SUPPORTS PROP 37 IN PAPER
Temecula, CA – As you read today’s news story about cancer and the environment ask yourself how many people do you know have cancer, had cancer, are sick from cancer, or died from cancer. I’m guessing that you know at least one in each column. I do. In 2009 alone, approximately 1.5 million American men, women, and children were diagnosed with cancer, and 562,000 died from the disease. What may surprise you, Dear Reader, is that only 5% of the cancers you can get are hereditary. 95% of existing cancers are environmentally caused!
With the growing body of evidence linking environmental exposures to cancer, the public is becoming increasingly aware of the unacceptable burden of cancer resulting from environmental and occupational exposures that could have been prevented through appropriate national action.
