One more surprise!

Village in Turkey?s west struggling against cancer due to uranium mine - LOCAL

After all the negative press this place has been getting over the last decade this article points out the difference between our cultures in bold print. I was very conscious of the health cover shortfall I was likely to get here and before I left the UK I arranged for a full and comprehensive medical check with special attention being paid to the threat of cancer. I received a full clearance and felt safe to make the move to this country. The cancer that I am currently being treated for is my second brush with this disease in the ten years I have lived here.

If anything in this report is true then the ramifications are extremely worrying. The complete disregard for human safety in this country is sinful. 24 souls lost last Friday, 300 in Soma four years ago and this report is also saying that the coal from those mines is also radioactive. Not far from the Soma mine is a huge iron mine as well. I wonder if these people know the difference between coal, iron and uranium!

I pass by this uranium mine area on a regular basis, also the Soma mine area, I live year round within 100Km of the Kisir mine. You people in Kusadasi and Didim are almost on top of it throughout the year.

I have no idea how far away is a safe distance but equally I have no idea how, when and to where they transport this sh!t, I am just as sure that whatever method they use to transport it is unlikely to be human friendly.

I think often of your situation with your Prostrate cancer. What treatment have you had up 'til now and what have they told you ? As I said to you at the outset MOST Prostrate cancers will never kill you and are best left alone. I hope that you are doing well and remaining positive.

Re: One more surprise!

Thank you for your thoughts Michael, they are appreciated but this thread is not about my cancer.

Found this and it sort of explains the risks and precautions, then I remembered driving past a number of mines in Turkey.

Re: One more surprise!

We were advised some years ago not to drink herbal teas collected from an area on the south coast because the herbs grew near to a nuclear power station.
Anyone remember when Windscale nearly blew up and the farmers had to pour away contaminated milk for ages. Some N Wales farmers are still monitoring sheep all this time after Chernobyl. . . and we want to build an unproven reactor on the Severn? How daft is that?
