EXHAUST PIPES - The fumes from car exhausts kills us slowly when we burn it and release the carcinogens into the atmosphere to create smogs. We might as well be smoking. Before Zyklon B, Russians and Germans gassed the inmates of concentration camps using the exhaust fumes from trucks. It is estimated that around 8 million people died in 2018 of cancer caused by vehicle pollution. That is three times the mortality rate of Covid 19. What are we like? It is our politicians who determine the speed at which we transition to clean technologies, and how we clean up the pollution we are making. Including plastic and radioactive waste - that we can never get rid of.




This cancer starts in the cells that line the esophagus (the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach) and usually occurs in the lower part of the esophagus, according to the Mayo Clinic. More men than women died from esophageal cancer between 2003 and 2007, according to the NCI. It is expected to kill 14,500 people in 2010.

Cancer prevention is action taken to lower the chance of getting cancer. By preventing cancer, the number of new cases of cancer in a group or population is lowered. Hopefully, this will lower the number of deaths caused by cancer. Unfortunately, the undertaker policies of most G20 nations, is sending millions of people to early graves. National health services cannot cope, as governments well know, but they are doing little about it, rather condoning long waiting list to kill off the victims of their negligent administrations.


To prevent new cancers from starting, scientists look at risk factors and protective factors. Anything that increases your chance of developing cancer is called a cancer risk factor; anything that decreases your chance of developing cancer is called a cancer protective factor.

Some risk factors for cancer can be avoided, but many cannot. For example, both smoking and inheriting certain genes are risk factors for some types of cancer, but smoking can be avoided as can driving petrol and diesel cars. Eating fish laden with toxins carried by plastics, is also something that can be avoided - except that many people in the world are dependent on seafood's for protein.


Where prevention is better than cure, clean energy infrastructure is necessary, to tackle the disease at the root cause. That also means not using single use plastics, and filtering rivers and oceans.


Regular exercise and a healthy diet may be protective factors for some types of cancer. Avoiding risk factors and increasing protective factors may lower your risk but it does not mean that you will not get cancer.

Different ways to prevent cancer are being studied, including:


- Drive an electric car and tell others about exhaust fumes

- Lobby your MP for cleaner transport and plastic alternatives
- Avoiding things known to cause cancer, like toxic ocean plastics
- Taking medicines to treat a pre-cancerous condition or to keep cancer from starting

- Eat plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and foods with B vitamins

- Take exercise and avoid overly rich carcinogenic foods, like plastic toxified fish

- Move out of the city


Remember Hinkley, California and PG&E, put yourself at risk as to any carcinogen and the chances are that your will get sick. Equally, those responsible for making you ill, will do all they can to deny it.






Air pollution levels tend to be higher in UK towns and cities. So why would anyone live there? The answer to that is they need the work and the money - so are prepared to accept the risk of a shorter life and painful death. And of course it costs more to live in the country, where there are no affordable houses. Councils like Wealden make sure of that.



In 2013, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) confirmed that outdoor air pollution is a cause of cancer. Tiny dust-like particles just millionths of a metre wide, called ‘particulate matter’, make up a part of outdoor air pollution. The smallest particles known as PM10 and PM2.5 are linked to lung cancers caused by pollution. It is not fully understood how these particles can damage DNA in cells and cause cancer.


Air pollution is a killer and the level of toxins can lead to several health conditions. Apart from severe respiratory conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiovascular problems and hypertension, stroke, impaired mental health, anxiety, low birth weight babies, pre-term delivery and depression, air pollution can also be linked to cancer.


Pollutants in the air are absorbed into the circulatory system and pumped all around the body. They can also get deposited on soil, water, and other natural sources, increasing human exposure. In a recent meta-analysis, it was found that exposure to the main air pollutants is associated with increased mortality from all cancers. For instance, radon, which is a radioactive gas, that can accumulate indoors is one of the leading risk factors for lung cancer.





Greed is fucking up planet earth and killing humans with cancers



Economies based on carcinogenic fossil fuels contravene the laws of natural justice, where those who knowingly kill their brothers and sisters in the name of profit, are guilty of murder. It is Cain slaying Able, where the instruments of death are greenhouse gases and particulates. Vote for rulers who have a conscience, not a fat wallet. The two seldom go hand in hand.




Guidelines by the World Health Organization give definitions as to air pollution, but there is nothing similar for ocean plastic pollution.
