Toxic Exposures Unleashed

I have previously discussed ways to prevent myeloma.  A key step is to avoid toxic exposures. Although the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), part of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, clearly identifies chemicals known to cause cancer, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently rolling back many programs and rules to protect Americans. This is especially disturbing since the same chemicals that cause cancer, also cause brain damage in children.

As I reported in a previous blog, not only does the herbicide Roundup cause lymphomas and myeloma, its widespread use on GMO (genetically modified organism) crops has decimated milkweed, an herbaceous perennial and the essential food for monarch butterflies. Since 1990, about 970 million monarchs have vanished.

The personal stories of toxic exposures potentially linked to myeloma just keep on coming! I am grateful to all who shared them with me.

Broad Concerns About Toxic Exposures And Myeloma

My recent blog, "New Study Provides Clues to What Causes Myeloma," clearly struck a chord with many myeloma patients. The heartfelt comments and questions are noted and really appreciated.
