One of these days I am gonna get round to writing an open letter to every Cancer Group and Charity that I can find a contact e-mail address for and ask them ALL to get together and lobby the FDA - not only about cancer causing plastic food packaging but also about harmful Synthetic food and drink dyes that can cause cancer and other health issues ( dyes make things look pretty but cause major health problems they have no redeeming value whatsoever ) also have them lobby on the stopping of the use of hormones and steroids in our poultry & live stock as these things can also cause cancer and other health issues in people. Get them to go after the source/cause of many cancers while they also look for cures.
Stop the causes of cancer people.
And on that note I would also want ALL of the Cancer Groups and Charities to also lobby the EPA and the Government to end the use of Fossil Fuels = Coal Oil LNG as they all pollute our environment.
Coal - the mining process pollutes the Ground and Water as it also destroys wildlife areas. The pollution contains carcinogens.
The burning of coal releases CO into the atmosphere along with carbon particulates arsenic mercury and various other heavy metals/toxins & carcinogens. Even if the exhaust of burning the coal is cleaned-up we are still left with the toxic ash dumps.
OIL - The extraction/drilling process has a tendency to pollute the environment with toxic spills on land and on water releasing carcinogens into the ground/soil and water ground water and ocean water - this then can also get into the food chain.
The Burning of OIL as a power source and as a fuel ( including the byproduct gasoline ) releases CO into the atmosphere also along with carbon particulates.
LNG - the extraction process pollutes the ground water and the soil releasing carcinogens into our environment and into our food chain. It also pollutes our atmosphere as the process is quite sloppy and the gas gets blown into the atmosphere - this also causes explosion and fire hazards.
These pollutants and carcinogens released into our environment are unnecessary as we have other clean technology that we can implement to replace fossil fuel:
Spread the word.
Green Tech. New and improved - now with Liquid Metal Battery for efficient power storage and distribution.
This is where we should be going: Green Energy we have the technology we just need to use it. This is what I am talking about. A clean future to be implemented NOW!
FuelCell Energy http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/news/progress_alerts.cfm/pa_id=600
You have got to watch this vid: The liquid Metal Battery - another piece to the puzzle.

BTW - Trains have electric engines - there are semis working in the ports that have electric engines - why couldn't a bulldozer ?
BTW : Other alternative fuels result in airplane performance penalties. For example, liquid hydrogen (LH2) not only presents very substantial airport infrastructure and airplane design issues, but because of the need for heavy fuel tanks, a short-range airplane would experience a 28 percent decrease in energy efficiency while on a 500-nautical-mile (nmi) mission. However, because airplanes need to carry much more fuel for a long range flight, and Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) fuel is quite lightweight the lighter takeoff weight of the airplane results in an energy efficiency loss of only 2 percent while on a 3,000-nm mission.
Support green energy technology - industry - jobs. Save our world save our economy.
Rework free trade agreements as they are currently detrimental to the Business, Employment, Economic and Environmental health of the USA and in extension the world.
Put an end to outsourcing for Profit over People and the environment.
Stop world wide corporate abuses of people and environments.
Besides finding cures for Cancer we need to find and stop the causes of cancer. Incidences of people contracting one form or another of cancer is skyrocketing - if we do not halt/stop the causes we may one day SOON see an incidence rate of 1in1 or even multiple cancers for 100% of the population throughout their ( our ) lifetimes.
Here is one petition I have found regarding plastic food packaging and containers:
From Change.org : On Cancer and the FDA.
There's a new petition taking off on Change.org, and we think you might be interested in signing it: Ask the FDA to ban cancer-causing chemicals in all of our food. Sign Susan's Petition
Started by: Susan, Portland, Oregon
The FDA just announced that baby bottles and sippy cups can no longer contain bisphenol A (BPA), a controversial hormone-disrupting chemical that studies show is linked with cancer, obesity, heart disease, and other life-threatening diseases.
This is a huge step towards getting dangerous chemicals out of our food supply. BPA isn't just found in baby products -- routine tests have found BPA in more than 80% of Americans' bodies. It's used in packaging food, lining cans for soups and sodas, and more.
Protecting my kids doesn't stop when they graduate from bottles and sippy cups. I am counting on the FDA to help regulate this dangerous chemical so the people I care about most in the world are safe -- no matter how old they are.
I know that together we can make a difference. Last year, I helped pass a ban on BPA in children's products in my own community in Oregon. Doctors, researchers, and medical experts testified about the risks of this chemical and the importance of keeping BPA out of our children's bodies. I was moved to tears by the hundreds of people who signed my Change.org petition in support of that campaign, and I hope this petition will make the FDA take notice, too.
Major brands have already begun distancing themselves from BPA due to consumer outrage. These companies have shown great leadership, but moving company by company and product by product is taking too long. BPA will continue to make people sick until it's out of our food supply for good. We need strong action from the FDA now to protect us, and our kids, from these dangerous chemicals.
Tell the FDA to ban BPA now.
