Easy Answer. FACTUALLY, Nuke Waste that is not contained, can in fact wreak havoc on health but not cause of this particular malady.
Again... People make un-educated guesses and then you look like a fool.
You should seek to fully understand an issue, edcuate your self on it in an "unbiased" way. (I know that last part will be difficult for most of you)

  


Uneducated? Anencephaly=neural tube disorder. NTD's linked to radiation/toxic waste, ag chems, and ddt. Literally dozens and dozens of peer reviewed articles. Its called google, try it. Causes of ntd's.

It should be blatantly obvious to everyone that this horror is an effect of radiation from Fukushima.

It is sickening. The more I read comments here at RTV, the more I am convinced that mankind is doomed by the ever increasing number of the un-educated drones who buy into all of this Socialist B.S

  


Socialist B.S? You just announce the color of your bias (or BS)! I guess you are more comfortable with the Capitalist B.S. But at least looking at both can help finding what is going on. The fact of the matter is none of them is good enough. Corruption is infecting both. We need the most brilliant independent scientists to lead the world.

Some things to consider; Fracking, corporate waste, vaccinations before birth!
Did you know the US deregulated vaccine safety that has already affected kids around the world?
There is now over ten times the amount of mercury is child Vaccinations these days than there was ever before. Mercury is the 3rd most toxic substance known to man kind...

Go figure that out!

Well its can't be GMO's, Vaccines, Flouride, or chemicals like E290 ( found in sodas ), or DHMO. Or those yellow dyes put into drinks and foods. Also not from proccessed foods or refine sugars or flours. I am pretty sure its terrorist! :)

  


It's only terrorism if you don't give the government its cut.

All are high drug use areas, wonder if that plays a part in any of the cases

those 3 counties are all in surrounding the Hanford radioactive waste facility, i dont see how noones thought that might be a contributing factor.

Wow Americans are so naive, this one is simple (even for you). " It’s the lack of information that still haunts Andrea Jackman, who said she lived near a pesticide-laden apple orchard and drank well water in the couple years before her surprise pregnancy". DDT?
