Lymphoma and the Collision Repair Industry

Many people, both in the medical professions and ordinary folks wonder what causes lymphoma. As lymphoma is actually over thirty different types of cancer, there are likely multiple answers.



Todays inquiry comes from an article on Steve Carey, who was diagnosed with lymphoma 3 years ago. When asking around, he found that other people in his industry, collision repair, noticed an increased incidence of lymphoma. Several reputable groups like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society report a possible link. There are also many "lawyer" sites on the Net - supposed information sites set up by law firms to get innocent cancer patients to file claims.
