people i know are dying like 10 pins.
the relatives of 2 colleagues of mine died just this week - one from cancer of the lung, the other, of the liver.
another colleague is now undergoing treatment for lymph node cancer.
who's next, i wonder? the waiting is akin to a game of russian roulette. we used to be in the dark concerning the cause of cancer, but now we know better. cigarette smoking, human papilloma, hepatitis B & Ebstein-Barr viruses，& Helicobacter bacterium are all known causes. but what about our lifestyle, the food & water we consume & the air we breathe?
the movies Erin Brockovich & A Civil Action are stark real-life reminders of the health hazard in our environment when we get careless or indifferent. remember Bhopal & Chernobyl? Germany is considering shutting its nuclear power plants in the wake of the Fukushima tragedy & so, you wonder, do we really need a rare earth plant in this country? no wonder the people in kuantan are up in arms at the decision.
in the meantime, the trigger-pulling continues.....
