Georgia Residents Find Cancer Report Lacking

On a recent evening in Waycross, GA, government officials gathered around card tables set up in a semicircle on the polished wood floors of the city auditorium.

There were representatives from the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, the local water department, and the city council. Even the mayor, John Knox, stood to the side, ready to greet people.

Across the street, a police officer stood next to his cruiser, baking in the 90-degree-plus heat.

Any epidemiologist worth salt would have both eyebrows raised when hearing about four of these cases popping up in a two month period in a small area like this one.
You can bet your shorts that there are buried 55 gallon drums of contaminants and old covered over utility areas with a soup of noxious chemicals in them.

When I started reading the article and realized it was full of emotion charged descriptive nonsense and 5000 words, I realized it was probably written by a plaintiff attorney looking to strike it rich.
The article is designed to poison the potential jury pool before the trials start.
