We live in Carlsbad within a 3-mile radius from Carlsbad High. We care about this cancer rate in Carlsbad.The state needs to look at the type/kind of fertilizers that were used in Carlsbad High football field. We didn't know where it came from and what's in it.

Did I hear it right? Is there a meeting on April 28, 2010 7pm at a middle school in Carlsbad regarding the high cancer rate? I was falling asleep and didn't catch the entire announcement on TV. Anyone hear about it?

Hi maria, Do you think the soil that was removed from the old football field could have been the problem?That maybe its all around still that particular area even though it was removed and the football field was remodeled?I think it contained lots of lead if I remember correctly? I live in South Carlsbad by the campgounds but my kids go to Carlsbad High and is that the area they are talking about? What exactly are they saying is causing cancer and what part of Carlsbad are they talking about? Just curious if you have heard anything. Thanks

Just wondering if Spyglass Point had any reported cancer cases.
Since it might be powerline related and Spyglass Point is built right next to them.
Lived there in the 90's worried that due to the powerlines it might have a cancer related health issues.
Just wondering any answers would be greatly appreciated Thank You.

How sure are we that there is a cancer cluster? I have 3 kids, so if there really is something to be concerned about, I want to know. Seems that like should come first before trying to figure out a cause.

I investigate cancer clusters and old dumpsites (landfills). Many schools across the country were built on top of old dumpsites, most of which contain carcinogenic chemicals. Does anyone know the previous land-use of the Carlsbad High School property?

oh it's definitely the power lines. There's been enough research done and proof that they cause cancer. That's what's doing it. Can we get rid of them? Anytime I drive under them or close to my head starts hurting a little. And no I'm not a hypochondriac, anymore.

You're assuming because you see the power lines that they are the cause of the cancers. It's important to dig deeper and look at all possibilities. Cancers have been connected to exposure to carcinogens in old dumps and many schools across the country are on top of old dumps. Also, I've found in my research that power lines are sometimes placed on top of old landfills. Doing a title search of Kelly Elementary School and Carlsbad High School would seem like the first thing to do in a cancer cluster investigation.

Water lines Gas lines,Service panels are connected to both.Turns everything into a electromagnetic field.Playing fields, streets,house's.Also power companys put electromagnetic charges on gas lines,they lied to me about that one. Turns my skin real white. What about the rise in skin cancer.

Residents are expressing concern for the high rate of cancer in and around Kelly Elementary School. Many schools across the country were built on closed dumps containing cancer-causing chemicals. It just makes that the first thing to do in this investigation is to find out the past land-use of the school property.

It's possible that Kelly Elementary School and Carlsbad High School are among the many schools across the country built on top of closed dumps (landfills)containing cancer-causing chemicals. Have title searches been conducted on both schools to help determine previous ownership and whether the properties were formerly used as dumpsites?

Do you know who owned the "Farmland"? Our organization has files of closed landfills that are located on farms and ranches.

The Evil Wind of power lines
New Science Power Lines and Cancer

Foehn and Chinook are well known natural Evil Winds, as new science reveals power lines join the ranks of Evil Winds

New science reveals that power lines molest people exactly the same way as the electric storms Foehn in Europe, Chinook in America and many other feared positive ion winds all over the world. However, power lines are far worse and that due to the reason, electric storms go away for a long time whereby, power lines can molest continuously.

The positive ion wind power lines produce has the same electrical characteristics as the positive ion charge Foehn and Chinook carry. The positive ion wind from power lines are as well carried by moving air and as far as the smoke of a fire. How far the smoke of a fire can travel is known. Like the smoke of a fire the positive ion of power lines smog is entering residences and fills up any room in it.

Every wire of a high voltage transmission system is just a huge positive ion generator that saturates the surrounding atmosphere. As mentioned before, the positive ions saturated atmosphere around power lines has exactly the same electrical characteristic as the positive ion saturated winds Foehn and Chinook. Foehn and Chinook molest people not so often, the power lines can do it continuously and that makes them lethal. Picture bellow shows how power full the positive ion discharge of power lines can be. This huge power is able to light up so many fluorescent tubes and that all along the entire length of a power line transmission system.

I haven't found any studies that connect cancer clusters to power lines. However, studies have shown cancers and other serious illnesses were caused by exposure to chemicals in closed dumps (landfills). Many schools across the country were built on old dumpsites containing carcinogens. Have there been title searches (back at least 50 years) on all the school properties in Carlsbad to help determine previous land-use?
