someone's throwing the cat amongst the pigeons.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit, if true. I've always said, the US are the biggest terrorists on this planet.

What a complete utter, load of rubbish, absolutely no proof or evidence. How can you 'give' an individual cancer? But then again it is the Daily Wail....

Probably fairly easily? Inducing cancer is not difficult, the conspiracy bit is how they would do it. Water supply? Food? Radiation?

I wouldn't put crap like this past the US gov. They must spend that $1T defence budget on something?! (Yes ~40% of UK GDP!)

Absurd suggestion. How could anyone spread cancer? The only thing I can think of would be to lace food and drink with a radioactive substance.... but seems unlikely.

Did anyone hear that a Russian politician recently claimed that the meteor strikes that hit recently were actually the US using some kind of experimental weapon?

There are a lot of nutters out there!

Alexander Litvinenko would disagree with your surmisal that this kind of thing doesn't happen.

The Meteor suggestion is a little far fetched. However, I think anyone who think the US aren't capable of inducting cancer into another person are a little naive.

It is the way of the American Foreign policy, after all.

Spreading cancer through food is pretty simple. There are many chemicals that should Never have been given FDA approval. When you actually contract cancer is another thing. It could be a few years or tens of years.

Did anyone watch Utopia on C4? Kind of the same type of conspiracy theory where a world organisation above the government is producing super diseases. It was fiction obviously but it mentioned things like SARS, BSE and various flu viruses... pandemics that just kind of fizzled out across history. It made you think and part of it was how easy it would be to introduce manufacture red disease into our food chain. More so specific targeting could be done by using infected or targeted vaccines.

The article is a load of crap though.

Yeah, but he died of radiation poisoning didn't he? Not cancer. Could be wrong.

If only the article was not from the Daily mail.

" I remember in the olden days we used to eat Rhubarb. NO one ever got cancer... This country is not what it used to be......." malarky.

Yes but I think the point was that it is possible to induce cancer using radiation. Increasing the probability of cancer forming in humans is easy. Asbestos?

Yes it is modern journalism at its finest.

Quote:
U.S. is giving South American leaders cancer, claims Chavez
Quote:
Although the Venezuelan leader insisted he was 'not accusing anyone', his controversial theory is unlikely to improve relations between the U.S. and Venezuela.
So he is claiming they are giving people cancer but simultaneously not making any accusations?!
