Does anyone know why so many people in Oak Hill have cancer?

Several of my friends and neighbors have cancer. None of them ever smoked or chewed tobacco and they are pretty young.

It's not just there. It is like that here to. I almost wish heart attacks would take over the cancer by about three times. 1 big one and you are out of here. Just like in a baseball game. But cancer is like a round of golf, it goes on and on and on.

From what I understand, other states dump their toxic and radioactive waste into ponds in Lochgelly. A lot of doctors and researchers believe that it is having a negative impact on people's health, even causing the cancer rate to go up.

I found this website which shows photos and videos of the dump site in Lochgelly:

I want to start trouble about the well at Lochgelly because I really know nothing about it. I am stupid but am concerned. I wish others would do the research because I am again to stupid.

I suppose you think the federal EPA and the NRDC are stupid too. You might want to take a look at the 7 page letter that was written by the NRDC's attorney regarding the history of violations and the health threats that the Lochgelly injection well poses to the public.

With an attitude like yours, it's no wonder, our area is a dumping ground for other states toxic waste.

i agree - there could be many reasons for it. i just found this article about it on the web. i know there was a public hearing in oak hill regarding the injection well permit last month. i didn't go and don't know what the current situation is.
