A. Good luck selling your houseI was reading all these comments, but after living here in Ilion, for a year, and almost every one I know has a cancer or a family & friends having a cancer, toxic dumpsite all over the place and even the school was built on top of it, I AM DONE WITH ILION AND GETTING OUT OF HERE AS SOON AS I CAN! Funny, because a lot of people in Ilion doesn't want to admit it but they know it's true, Cancer cases all over the place, so close to each other and that's no coincidence. Pretty much the whole ILION is contaminated, there is no place to run except out of Ilion.
B. NO ONE has present empirical data concerning cancer rates and the basis for the cancers
C. Ilion is to my knowledge not in a cancer cluster
D. You clearly are making a knee jerk reaction without looking at the whole picture.
E. I am a 19 year cancer survivor who DID live in an acknowledged cancer cluster area with a cancer identified as having a potential origin from the agricultural zone where I resided.
Get the facts...and Carrie Firestone hasn't been able to bring anything but hysteria to the table. Don't move to Herkimer because of the Quackenbush toxic mess. Don't move to Frankfort because of the Union Fork and Hoe toxic mess.
