RV Community for Cancer
To our amazement, while parking our RV near Houston, we discovered a high percentage of cancer victims whom while receiving hospital treatments live at the RV Resort. I met and spoke with a family here in this circumstance. The young father was the victim being treated. His wife said that this is the nicer of the RV Parks in the Houston area, however, another park with fewer amenities has more community because almost all of the residents are cancer treatment victims.
In the movie, Bernie, the Houston area is referred to as The Carcinogen Coast. As a new RV owner operating under the assumption that those who live at RV parks do so as part of an “RV Lifestyle”. This is the first time, I had considered cancer being the reason for the lifestyle.
Yes, Houston has five major hospital chains treating cancer and could account for a higher population of cancer treatment victims leaving in or near Houston for treatment. But who came first, the hospitals or the cancer? Why would cancer incidence be higher in Houston in the first place? Genetics? Bad Luck?
Sure, everyone knows that Houston is known for its oil and all the pollution that comes with it. People on the Gulf know that heavy metals will show up if they eat the seafood. The Health Department recommends eating less than 8 oz of fish a week from the Gulf. Is that to reduce incidence or to delay the onset of cancer?
What about the bio-accumulation of toxins such as glyphosate that is aerial sprayed on all the forests and farms in the US above Houston that drains into the gulf, soaks down into the aquifers, and is blown back onto land in a hurricane? Where are your shrimp and oysters sourced?
What about the link between cancer and the mycotoxins that are released after a hurricane from the damp homes and everything else in its path?
If cancer treatment does not take into account and counter toxic exposures from the environment and diet, then those receiving the treatments are victims twice over. The cancer treatment should include removing the toxins from the body and working to remove the toxins from the environment through public discourse and education.
