A cancer epidemic? This is nutso!
Actor Ricky Schroder has yanked his daughter from Malibu Middle School after several cases of cancer have been diagnosed.
In the last six months, three teachers have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, while others have migraines, hair loss and skin rashes.
Ricky isn’t alone either! About 25 percent of the parents in his daughter’s class have also pulled their kids from the school!
So, the school has taken action and is running tests for radioactivity, contaminants and asbestos. Their preliminary mold contamination tests rendered “no unusual findings.”
The tests will continue, but for now the rumor is that the school’s soil has pesticides, lead and PCBs in it.
Our hearts go out to the teachers that were diagnosed with cancer, and we wish them a speedy recovery!
Hopefully there are no other diagnoses and the school figures out what the heck is going on!
