And yet, second-hand cigarette smoke will kill both mother and child, in any trimester!
It's amazing! Industrial solvents are so much safer than cigarette smokers.

Ben you are so right, cigarette smoke kills so many people that just come in contact with it. It's worse than ziklon b, or whatever it is they used in WWII to kill mass people.
Yet 2 of the oldest woman who's age can be proved, smoked all there life, it's in the Guiness book of word records.

The entire MV supersite area is full of TCE, benzene, toulene, formaldehyde ...
If you really believe, that the former pollutants are taking responsibility and are cleaning up swiftly, you're so mistaken. Some of the former pollutants haven't even claimed responsibility! They even don't care, they occasionally show up in public hearing, because they wouldn't look good otherwise so they come to the hearing meetings and do emailing.
EPA doesn't have the resources to clean up. It doesn't have even own measurement data! It completely relies on the former polluting companies to take proper measurement. the definition of proper is upto the individuels.
CDC measured 3 times more non hodgin lymphoma occurence in that area than normal distribution. However, it didn't consider, that people move, especially in Bay Area. So the real numbers don't probably lie by 35 occurence, it probably lies lies around 60, who knows?
What about people who work there? Kids, who go there to school?
