Subject: Pesticides: a "clean" life style will not stop childhood
Letter to the editor, Sat. Nov. 5, Saskatoon Star
Old-timers in our network will recognize Donna's name from other
statements she has made in the past:
IN RESPONSE TO CANCER
CRISIS LOOMS, OCT 22/05
To encourage people to improve their lifestyles
is valid but that alone
is & will not be effective in preventing cancer.
We have multitudes of
live model lifestyles & still
Clearly, eating your veggies, exercise & refraining
from smoking is not
enough. Cancer is North America's #1 disease killer of
children. We live in
where babies are born with cancer. This is
a wake-up call.
It is time to quit denying our human form as we are not
meant to live in a
world of toxicity.
Until we take the focus from
cure and 'for profit' research and do some
investigation & begin legislating carcinogens out of the
will not 'win the war on cancer'.
For me to maintain the consensual
silence of the inadequacy of our current
cancer strategies is a betrayal of
my deceased child and every other
deceased cancer victim who is unable to
speak for themselves.
The first step in solving a problem is
acknowledging it exists.
