More Americans are Dying of Liver Cancer, But it's Their Fault Anyway



Liver cancer death rate in US surged 43 percent in 16 years WSYM Tue, Jul 17 3:37 AM MST Fox 47 News https://www.fox47news.com/news/national/liver-cancer-death-rate-in-us-surged-43-percent-in-16-years

Death rates from liver cancer increased 43 percent for American adults from 2000 to 2016, according to a report released Tuesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

...More than 70% of liver cancers are caused by underlying liver disease, which has risk factors such as obesity, smoking, excess alcohol consumption, and hepatitis B and C infection, said Dr. Farhad Islami, the scientific director of cancer surveillance research at the American Cancer Society.


Why is it that when disease incidents increase, expert authorities cited by the media always blame the victims?

Why is it that environment gets reduced to lifestyle choices?

Why are the mass media so complicit in erasing other environmental causes for diseases whose incidents are rising in rather alarming ways, such as Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Autism, ADHD, and various cancers?

The idea that you are responsible for your diseases is not entirely wrong in the sense that lifestyle choices do matter, but what matters as much, or in many cases more, are exposures over which you have little-to-no control, such as the ubiquitous pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals in your environment.

And human-engineered chemicals rarely approach the toxicity of elements freed by human engineering such as uranium, lead, mercury, radiocesium, etc.

Radionuclides produced by nuclear plants and weapons testing are the greatest cancer engine of all.

  1. Dr Suzanne Humphreys is a nephrologist.
    She spent three years writing a book on vaccinations and concluded that we should eat well instead. 500 pages of very interesting material. Recently she has been receiving grisly death threats which neither the Austin police nor the FBI have been very responsive to.

    If you are an intelligent and sincere doctor and say or write things that go against the grain of money interests you may end up committing suicide no matter how you feel. She now relies on a Glock!

    There is this invisible shell or sphere that exists around us all. If we touch the sphere we are considered a threat. If we penetrate the sphere we will soon meet a bad end usually.

    Silence is golden.

    1. Our food and water are contaminated with radium and uranium from fracking and nuclear. Pharmaceuticals from mumbai are contaminated with metals and god knows what else. We are polluting ourselves to death. Who do you think u r didding u old fop

      You are not kidding anyone pro-nuke shill. Trumpo does not care about vaccines. You use the vaccine meme as a distraction from the deadly nature of the worse environments death:radionuclides.. If u truly live by boulder you would be very concerned for yourself and kids, about all the plutonium, in the ground, being stirred up at rocky mountain flats now that they are opening up to the unsuspecing public as rocky mountain wildlife refuge. The large amounts of unaccounted for plutonium from accidents, mistorage will be in the air again for your family to breath.

      Federal Probers Sound Alarms : Rocky Flats: Boon Turns Into Ecological Nightmare
      June 20, 1989|TAMARA JONES and DAN MORAIN| Times Staff Writer
      A decade ago, when he was trying hard to make his mortgage and feed a young wife and three small children, he earned $8.35 an hour at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant, including an extra 15 cents an hour in "hot pay" for handling radioactive plutonium "buttons."

      When the headaches began, Gabel took aspirin and kept working. When he suffered a seizure and lost consciousness, doctors found the malignant brain tumor. When he was dying, Don Gabel tried to warn everyone about Rocky Flats.

      His hair gone and head disfigured by the surgical removal of part of his skull, Gabel spoke out about carelessness and incompetence at one of the most secret defense plants in the nation. He told of repeated radiation leaks. Not many people listened.


      But now, nine years after Don Gabel died in the first proven case of radiation-caused cancer at Rocky Flats, federal investigators are sounding similar alarms.
      Nearly 100 federal agents are combing the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant in search of evidence of serious environmental crimes and governmental cover-ups that allegedly spanned years.

    3. No false info. The truth just gets your goat so much, u resort to ad hominems about spelling and invectives because, u have no truth. U resort to propaganda memes to change the subject from the truth, about the terrible environmental spector of death and diease incidents that have been rising in alarming ways, such as Parkinsons,Diabetes, Genetic illness, heart disease, genetic heart defects, Alzheimers, Autism, ADHD, and various cancers, since the massive radionuclide contaminations began 75 years ago.

      You will not address catastrophes like at rocky mountain flats, Hanford, Fukushima, the ongoing nuclear fire in St Louis.

      You will not talk about WIPP or the semitruck full of nuclear waste that caught fire in Utah on a major freeway.

      Billions on space war death-boondoggles and more massive-radionuclide poisoning of the planet.

      And the drums of war in iran are beating while the propandists run amock

    6. About some things we, the vulgar, can not do anything. Those matters are in the hands of the hoi oligoi,

      Opposing nuclear matters is akin to beating your head against a brick wall. But if we oppose mandatory vaccinations, then some children will be grateful and healthier. 40 vaccinations by the age of two. And because of legal immunity pharmaceuticals are going a similar route with antibiotics and the like--to avoid law suits.

      "Mock on, Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau;
      Mock on, Mock on, 'tis all in vain.
      You throw the sand against the wind,
      And the wind blows it back again.

      And every sand becomes a Gem
      Reflected in the beams divine;
      Blown back, they blind the mocking Eye,
      But still in Israel's paths they shine.

      The Atoms of Democritus
      And Newton's Particles of light
      Are sands upon the Red sea shore
      Where Israel's tents do shine so bright." Wm Blake

      Please spare poor Mr Blake insults and expletives.

      By changing yourself, you change others. By changing others you change the world.

      These days the activist must greatly exaggerate everything. Trump and Putin summit likened to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. I would say yes to doing what one can to oppose the reckless use of nuclear things . . . but I would realize that no one of account is listening.

    7. Just another propaganda spewing fascist troll

  2. Bullshit vaccination meme while mureica is poisoned to death by radionuclides. Fuko likes vaccines but the cult meme of vacine goes on. Probly because the fascists hate anthing to do with the govt spending any money on public health and yet....It is all distraction and theater. The propaganda and nonsense goes about how evil russia is. What china is doing. So they can spend trillions on the nukes in space wars farce..

    If hell exists, there should be a special welcoming for Lockheed Martin, it’s executive officers, shareholders, and workers. The sad thing is that most people who work for Lockheed are Christians.

    Spend 10s of billions to continue the bush-cheny-neoconservative wet-drean to attack iran.

    Meanwhile semitrucks full of radioactive waste, catch fire on freeways in murica. Flynn drinks radioactive, lead water. 60 or 70 nuke reactors on the verge of failing.

    Muricans are stupid radioactive sheep and their leaders are psycho.

  4. Bush-Cheney wanted a nuclear strike on Iran. So does fuko-Trump-Netanyahu. Time to get rid of the warmongers and nuclear weapons. Even a limited nuclear war would set off nuke reactors, to make a country and the world uninhabitable. It would only take a few reactors.

    It is already a lot that way in the northern hemisphere. Soon there will be 10bq/kg to 100bq/kg of radium, tritium, uranium, thorium, americium anywhere one goes in america.

    Pure insanity. Dumb sheeps. Any nuclear blast is a lose-lose suicide game.

    Our own fuckin military, bombed us with a thousands, of open air and underground nuke bommbs! Much of the fallout is left.

    The millions of tons of nuke and uranium waste still exists from building those bombs. From continued nuke bomb making.

    The waste is growing! The only reason, the evil bastards keep nuclear reactors going is to keep production of fissile maerial production for nuclear weapons going. Inescusable psychopathy. The sheep and cattle here let it grow and get worse
