That's what they used to tell us at the Esso refinery where I worked, lot of my co workers never made it to the age of 65 - cancer saved the company a lot in retirement payout benefits.

And many of those co-workers, smoked and drank excessively. They most like did not lead healthy lifestyles, and had questionable driving habits. Yes, some jobs are more closely associated with workplace induced illness. However, many of the illnesses and  deaths are not work related, but are  specific to the  worker demographic and behaviors. American and European  industrial workers grew up in cities where there was lead in the gasoline, arsenic and lead in the paint and where children were exposed to harsh chemicals and  pesticides at an early age. Keep in mind that the general population  male life expectancy in the USA was 74 up until the 1980's. It is 78 today. Dying before age 65, while not desirable  was not unusual, especially if one drank alot, smoked marlboro reds and ate lots of processed foods.

 

In respect to retirement benefits; you overlook the fact that the group pensions have survivor benefits, and pay out a death benefit. If the worker paid anything into the  pension, all of it is returned to the estate. If there was a group associated life insurance policy, there was a payout.

Read up on the aerial spraying that has taken place in Argentina and which, it is claimed, has seriously affected and killed many.

 

Monsanto has big bucks and clout in the industry and finds doctors and scientists who put the unusually high number of cancer cases down to the "cluster" phenomenon...………….strange that these "clusters" occur where most of the spraying is done?

Im talking locals in Thailand, Somchai who goes and buys  a litre then mixes it way too strong, gets a Knapsack sprayer then sprays 5  foot  tall grass ( way too  high) in flip flops and shorts with a scarf over his  face.

Although the three dangerous chemicals cannot be legally banned now, he, however, said that import of the three chemicals had been substantially cut down to 13,000 tonnes from 50,000-60,000 tonnes

Supply & demand hey?
