She may have had a point. I'm sure this has been discussed by many. Concrete contains lime and is very caustic, that's why you don't breath the dust in a bag when pouring a patio. The towers coming down reduced, mechanically, the concrete into very fine cement dust. This got into many people's lung and started a cyst or two. That can be the start of cancer. So there it is.

But being from a family of cancer victims, a smoker, and a disco queen prolly had more to do with it.

A.V.G. You are a master.
 
2012-05-18 02:02:25 PM  
I'm not a cancer researcher, but wouldn't breathing in tons of dust that wasn't asbestos (and all the other things people blame) still increase the odds of some type of respiratory disease?

I hate obits that trot out the "He was a church-going man" or "the wonderful mother of 3 children...".

Just because someone goes to church or has procreated multiple times doesn't make their demise any MORE tragic than if they were childless and and an atheist.

9/11 dust killed the disco queen

I thought video killed the radio star?

"Donna died in Florida aged 63 after a long battle with lung cancer."

Can one of you unemployed English majors help me out? I'm not sure if that is supposed to be a sentence, or if it's just random words strung together.

Being a disco queen is known to cause cancer?

9/11 dust was on the grassy knoll

Didn't she die from breast cancer? if 9/11 dust killed anyone it was Peter Jennings.

Because 9/11 never happened! It was all filmed on a soundstage as a propaganda tactic.

Forget the Lime, There was tons of Aebestos in the towers (and probably building 7) and was going to require a billions of dollars in renovations according to new building codes in NY. The EPA should have been well aware that, but was never mentioned.

Donna Summers, disco queen and epidemiologist.

Who knew?

Next up: Karen Carpenter, famous 70's soft rock vocalist and noted dietitian.

Gee, I hope they left room for her name on the 9/11 memorial.

did Osama BL die of 9/11 dust as well?
 
2012-05-18 03:03:34 PM  
Well, cross the gays off my suspect list.

Actually, that's like 10% of my suspects right there, thanks again, Donna Summer.

Goodnight, disco lady.

The Super Bowl was pre-taped six months ago in the same Nevada hangar where they faked the moon landing...and this "9/11" thing you mentioned.

I'LL NEVER FORGET.....mostly because someone has referenced it every damn day since then.

Uhh... I don't think anyone in then obits is competing for "most tragic death." The families just put stuff in they thought others may like to hear. Fell free to have your family put, "Didn't spawn and was apathetic about a deity" in your obit if you feel slighted.

Mellow out.
 
2012-05-18 03:46:29 PM  

Psycoholic_Slag: The_Eliminator: It killed my friends' dad... he was somehow involved with removing the gold reserves under the towers (security maybe?). Diagnosed with mesothelioma about a year later, dead a year after that. Never smoked a day in his life, and never worked around asbestos except for right then.

Hmmm, could it be related?

That type of cancer takes a long time to develop. Like 20 years.


Wow, weird coincidence then. At least I think it was that form of cancer (it was 9 years ago!)... It was a lung cancer that spread to his gut before they found it. Still sucked, the guy was retired and on his second career, and looking forward to spending time with his future grandkids.

So I guess I shouldn't have used lime to cut that cocaine I was selling?

ferretman: As someone who was enveloped in the cloud of crap as the towers fell...I call BS...unless I currently have cancer and don't know it....haven't been to the doctors in years.....


Really? Everyone that breathed in the dust were suppose to register with the government for free monitoring and medical coverage. A co-worker was at ground zero and every year has a full check up. He has some lung problems from the incident.

Uh, yes it does. Tragedy isn't an intrinsic thing. Somebody has to think something is tragic for it to be tragic. The more people that it impacts negatively (e.g., the children who are still alive), the more tragic it is.

There is no heaven or hell. There is no judgement by God when we die.

We are not meant to live for very long. It is the circle of life.

Accept this and you will live the rest of your lives in peace.

I disagree.

When the feeling's gone and you can't go on, it's tragedy.

When you lose control and you got no soul, it's tragedy.

ftfy. That was so the patriots could go to the Boobies-9-11 Super Bowl and everyone could wave their little flags and feel all patriotic, thinking they were "doing their part against terrorism". As far as Ms. Summer goes...she was ok.

tuck rule my arse!
 
2012-05-18 11:23:49 PM  
Or ... or ... She was kind of old and did a crap ton of coke in the 70's.

I just completed a paper on this very topic. Cancer rates in 9/11 first responders are three times the normal rate, but the government refuses to acknowledge that exposure to WTC debris and dust had any hand in causing the cancer. Because of this, they are excluded from compensation or healthcare coverage provided by the first responders health care bill. The government is probably afraid that if they acknowledge the connection between exposure to the dust and cancer, it would set a dangerous precedent nationwide and provide fuel for the environmental lobbyists. Meanwhile, people are suffering and dying and putting themselves and their families into debt because they did their service to the community. It's sick.

It was the NSA satellite energy beams interacting with the residual radiation from the micro-nukes that did the trick.
