Early 1950's, we lived not too far from some above ground nuclear tests in the western US. Daddy had been stateside after Europe (he was USA then went USAF when it was formed) when the Enola Gay dropped Little Boy and BochsCar dropped Fat Man over Japan. He did go in for occupation though. The only one in my family that has had any cancer for at least 4 generationsx is me - IBC. He was stationed in France during the Korean War (we were there too. There are other possible 'reaxons' for me - I had radiation to my throat wwhen I was 1 1/2. y/o when tonsils taken out (common practice then). I grew up on USAF bases, losts of chemicals over years (hairdresser/upholstery/screen printing), was USA, on or very close to UNS Air Fields for 20 yrs, live under the flight path for a large USAF base so I've definately been aroung a lot of potential carcinogens my entire life.
