Midland resident feels that breast cancer research, promoted by Forrestfield MLA, is misplaced

WHILE I really love the energy given out by the MLA for Forrestfield, Nathan Morton, his enthusiasm for research into breast cancer and others is off track (Reporter, October 28).

There is really no need for further research. We live in a highly toxic world not (may I say of the community’s making; but higher up the food chain) that plays havoc with our bodies.

So wouldn’t it be better if all the billions of dollars given by honest folk with no motives other than seeing others get better went to such as stronger lobbying to take toxic chemicals out of our environment. We have more than 3000 toxic chemicals in our life that we have to deal with every day.

Therefore, isn’t it time we started to live more naturally by helping ourselves and our environment to stay healthy.
