I Have A Question Concerning The Environment?

Postby abramo91 » Sat Sep 23, 2017 2:26 pm

Do people think that hazardous chemicals simply go away? Are that not aware that some toxic chemicals can have a shelf life that can last hundreds, or even thousands of years?

I'm no tree hugger, but I do not believe you can keep polluting our rivers, lakes, and streams without some type of catastrophic event happening in the future. What if one day we must live off the land like they did in the 1800's?

Why do you suppose cancer and heart disease is more common now than it was in the beginning of the 20th century? More people? NO! The percentage is still higher. More smokers? NO! People actually smoke less today. Cancer is not caused by simply smoking alone. There is a wide range of causes.

Why is it that a perfectly healthy person can get lung cancer even though they never have been exposed to asbestos, and most importantly, THEY NEVER SMOKED!

Does the food I eat have the same amount of nutrients and pollutants that it had 50 years ago? Something tells me probably not!

You mean like sulfuric acid and toxic gases and stuff?

You know, volcanos have been spewing that crap forever (and forever is a very long time).

So why aren't environmentalists anti-volcano?

Seeing is believing. I have seen it with my own eyes. I live in a state in which every stream and lake is polluted. There was a time when people were not afraid to eat the fish. NOT ANYMORE!

I have also seen a company get fined for dumping toxic wastes into a nearby river. luckily, they got caught! I wonder how many don't.

People are also getting much more chronic ilnesses nowadays. Arthritis, MS, Obesity......etc. etc.

Never seen so many people with chronic sicknesses before. It must have something to do with our lifestyle.

Shitty food filled with artifical bullshit and stuff.

but rather than looking for causes people will just believe big pharma and the medical industrial money racket and take a drug.

1 The environment is MUCH cleaner than it was in say the 60'

2 The higher incidence of cancer is mostly due to our increased ability to detect and diagnose cancer. If you looked back 100 years ago people died of things like "consumption". We basically had no idea why some people died.

They died of diseases like dysentery, malaria, polio before they could get heart disease.


I'm not for polluting but you are going on like this is 1970 and not 2009.
We've come a long way.

Lack of oxygen or de-oxygenation is the primary cause of cancer. Some people become cancerous in twenties of cigarette smoking while other smoke for eighties and remain healthy. This is because smoking lower down the oxygen level and body cells try to mutate to live in the abnormal state and as a consequence the cells may die or they adapt to survive.

Here i explained how smoking causes cancer which is answer to one part of your question.
