2. Cancer clusters.

It seems the area I'm now living in is one of them. It's like not a month goes by that I don't hear of someone I know coming down with cancer and I'm talking about many of them who are leading healthy lifestyles. I was curious as to why so many in an area that is not densely populated. It seems because we have a lot of commercial agriculture here and are one of California's wine producing regions, the blame is starting to fall down on the possibility of the pesticides and fertilizers being used as the culprit. I also, wonder just how well contained the radioactive waste is from our nearby nuclear power plant.

So far it's only speculation because no one has attempted to test the soil and water for high levels of carcinogens or radioactive material that could also be carcinogenic. It would mean fighting Goliaths like Monsanto, Dupont, Duke Energy and P G & E.

I hope you succeed in the end. It could be a start of spreading the struggle to keep our soil and air pure, as well as our water.
