Genetic Mutations Linked To The Practice Of Burning Coal


Recommended Posts

It is interesting.

My siblings and I grew up in a RR depot where we relied on an old pot-bellied stove to keep the chill off. This was in a rural area on the border of ND and Canada!! We shoveled and burned lots of coal and played in the coal bin. I have often thought that there has been a connection, somehow, on our growing-up days and the strong link to lung cancer in our family. Besides being a depot agent for the RR, Dad daylighted as a crop-duster, having his airstrip and chemicals in our backyard. Later, he realized his dream to fly and zoom about full time. However, we kids were exposed to un-Godly amounts of carcinogens.

Not angry. That's just the way it was.

Thanks for the heads up on this one.
