Here is a recent news report on the findings: http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/358520/3/Can... --

If you have any friends, family, neighbors, old classmates from the north county area that you know have been suffering or passed from cancer, autoimmune diseases, reproductive issues, ect. Please consider joining the Coldwater Creek - Just the facts Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/21721544496393... .

We are trying to collect data and share stories of those affected, potentially caused by radioactive waste dumped at the St. Louis Airport Site and now on the Environmental Protection Agency's National Priorities List. The group is also a great support to those who are affected.

If you aren't interested in joining the group, at least just fill out the survey just to collect data please: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/coldwater_cree...

The FaceBook page which has been setup for this data gathering
http://www.facebook.com/groups/21721544496393 if you are not a member of Facebook perhaps a friend can transmit this information for you.

They will need to know the address your husband lived and the zip code for there data gathering.

My condolences on the death of your husband, may he be a bright shining star in the sky!

Im sorry to hear of your loss Nancy. From what I can gather from the group, brain cancers seem to be common in this area. Please update the page with his former address and zip code so we can add this to the data. A good friend of mine died at the age of 26 with lymphoma. He lived off of Parker rd in 63033. Also my grandfather worked at McDonnell Douglas for over 30 years in the buildings right next to the waste sites. He retired in 1987 and had bladder cancer the following year.

Its truly heartbreaking and maddening at the same time knowing that the government allowed dumping and storage of radioactive waste in our area for so many years. I would think by late 1950's to early 1960's they knew exactly what this waste had the potential of doing and could've cleaned it up and moved it then.

Since this story broke late last week it looks like the facebook group is about to eclipse 5000 strong. Im anxiously awaiting all of the new data points to give us an undeniable conclusion. Question is, what can be done about it?
Scientific facts

I have empathy for any family that has lost someone to cancer, or any health issue.

But, where is the scientific facts and information. I have read that FB page, and it is being driven by hysteria and fear.

Emotion is powerful, but, people contract illness and disease for many reasons.

People pass, we all will, some timely, some unexplained and some tragically.

It is Gods will, blame won't help the healing.

I believe that's why they are collecting data from current and former residents. Granted its not even close to using the scientific method but when you read about very rare forms of cancer and autoimmune diseases concentrated in small areas like this, it raises red flags and deserves to be investigated. So many people lost decades off their lives and suffered. Add in everyone's distrust of what government tells us and the fact that many soil and water samples prove that the area is contaminated with radio-nucleotides (Uranium, Thorium, and other isotopes)

By the way, Gods will and scientific facts are mutually exclusive concepts.

If radio active waste is as bad as stated, then why is Tokyo and Nagasaki thriving?

Google RADON, and you will see that there are many naturally occuring ratiation threats.
Just because the hysteria and the news make this a story, doesn't make it true.
There is no

"hysteria" just factual info that shows the cancer rate in the area of Cold Water Creek have increased several times that of the metro area and the U.S. in general. Something similar to Three Mile Island.

And the posters here and who particpate in the other venues are not the media. They are spouses, family and friends of persons who are either dealing with various forms of cancer or who have passed away from the disease.

Perhaps you should try being a little more empathetic or at least know the facts before you begin making assumptions.

God's will my pagan butt! What is it your sort of people always wanting to pass the buck to God? If you really cared about the people who are involved in the situation you wouldn't be making such sanctimonius comments.

You must work for the government idiot, it took decades and decades for them to resemble any kind of normal life in those areas.
Please

Know what you are "talking" about before posing the question. Firs of all Tokyo was never subjected to radiation from the H-Bomb or A-Bomb. Tokyo was attacked with incendiary bombs (fire bombs).

In regards to Nagasaki and Hiroshima, those two islands still have a very high rate of cancer patients. A few who actually survived the initial bombing and those persons who were born after the attack.

If you want to argue the accuracy of the charges being noted here then be open minded enough to do your research before making assumptions rather than facts.

It's not just cancer, it's birth defects, immune disorders, conjoined twins, etc. It's not hysteria either. It's a known fact that exposure to radioactive waste causes cancers and other issues. Our parents and we as children were unknowingly exposed to radioactive Uranium for years and the Govt. should do something about it.
