one out of 4 Americans will get some type of cancer if they live to be 80. thus it makes it difficult to pin point the cause of a cancer cluster
@Gail That I don't know. But it's worthy of asking them.
the public health problem is to balance the need to know and the seeding panic especially if the cause has not been identified
@another teacher that's a great question teachers/staff should ask the school district
@ a teacher thank you for that information
it's important to follow early detection guidlines for colon and breast cancer. certainly polluted water could be a suspect. Drinking bottled or filtered water might be a good start
@ Maggie Pennel There were other reports too... kidney and lymphoma. But lung and breast cancer seemed to appear frequently.
@Maggie Pennel I didn't find that. But I can't confirm that information.
Again, anyone with information/news tips/connections to Buhler-- feel free to email me. I can keep your information private. firstname.lastname@example.org
early detection for lung cancer is yearly high resolution CT scan of the lung in at risk patients. For breast cancer: yearly mamogram, colon cancer: screening colonoscopy
@Leanne I heard the same thing about the area. We we were out there, many community members said the same thing.
Because of the time, we are about to wrap-up our conversation here.
Are there any more questions for myself or Dr. Dakhil?
