It appears that incest may play a role in this disease.

It appears pretty evident that the serious blood diseases were caused by chemicals in old dumpsites and mine tailings that surround Tamaqua and nearby towns. Government agencies aren't doing anything but taking more tests and doing more studies. Is it their way of not having to spend money on cleanup of the toxic waste or relocation of residents?

We never had this problem before they dumped all the toxic waste up by Macadoo

The area surrounding Tamaqua is full of dumpsites and mining wastes. How far from Tamaqua is the waste site up by Macadoo?

It's much more plausible that the illnesses were caused by former dumpsites peppered throughout the Hazleton area and not from a waste site 5 miles away.

You are ignorant if you fail to realize the process of ground water aqueduct flow. 5 miles might sound far to someone like yourself who has very little knowledge on the subject. It's more plausible that you're too lazy to educate yourself.

The Government knows what the cause is, especially the goons from Harrisburg. They will not tell anyone the truth. I have a friend that had the water tested, he knows but won't say a word. All he tells me, is, they know and move out of Tamaqua.

Nearby landfills are endangering the community in several other ways aside from contamination of the groundwater. Most former dumps contain highly flammable and highly explosive methane gas which can migrate underground at least 1,000 feet from the perimeter of a landfill. Chemical gases within the landfill migrate with the light methane, thus exposing the community to carcinogens in the air and soil.

If you friend knows inside information about water quality, then he/she has a moral obligation to reveal the information in the interest of public health and safety. If your "friend" is not doing that, then you have every reason to doubt the truthfulness and sincerity.

I grew three extra balls from drinking Tamaqua water. However, my meat whistle shrunk. I may have found a cure in my email SPAM folder.

Its true and other people in this state have it. I know what it is but just like other people do, and they won't say nothing.
