  1. If Dr Bleaney and Dr Scammell read this, perhaps they could post their side of this story on Tasmanian Times?  I would like to hear what they have to say about criticisms of their research.

  2. The criticism of the report appeared to revolve around perceptions that the increase in cancers and other illnesses was not just specific to St Helens but also in other places across Tasmania.

    Is that correct?

    Certainly there has been a significant increase in childhood diabetes in Tasmania.  No-one knows why.

  3. The substantial concern for Tasmania would be that our human activity over considerable areas of this island, is making it ‘toxic’ and not ‘clean & green’.

    Little wonder monitoring of water catchments for chemical residues has been on the backburner.

    Maybe there are no unusual clusters of medical conditions in the St Helens area because chemical residues are widespread.

    If humans in Tasmania had the ‘devil disease’ (cause unknown) that would create some apoplexy in the average Tasmanian politican.
