Why We Need Prop 46

Why We Need Prop 46

I’ve never been able to stomach a bully, whether on the playground or in a corporate executive suite. The biggest bully in California politics these days is the “No on 46″ gang — the collection of billion-dollar insurance companies and medical industry honchos spending big and spreading falsehoods to defeat Proposition 46.

Erin Launches Website for Morcellation Victims

Erin Launches Website for Morcellation Victims

In late April 2014, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), issued a warning to women and medical service providers that has come too late for thousands of women and their families. The FDA’s warning was a public message to discourage the continued use of what is referred to as “morcellation” for the removal of uterus or uterine fibroids following many cases of cancer spread due to this surgical intervention.

Erin Brockovich became aware of this issue through a long-time friend who has consequently suffered.

“The problem with the procedure is that it can spread cancer cells. For me, I would rule out cancer first and then decide what course of treatment is necessary, but that’s me, however any decision would be difficult to reach without all the information. We have heard stories from women that are simply terrifying and heartbreaking. After further discussion, my friend spoke in depth with her doctor who provided her much needed information and comfort. She will be sharing her story and what she has learned on this site as well. It is frightening to my friend and me and frankly all of us as women to see and hear that we are often times NOT always informed about what is really going on and happening to others with similar problems.”

If you or a family member have been impacted by morcellation, please share your story at the Morcellation website.

Erin Brockovich Voices Opinion on Toledo Water Crisis

Erin Brockovich Voices Opinion on Toledo Water Crisis

I have received hundreds of questions concerning the water quality issues in Toledo, Ohio over this last weekend.

The algae bloom clearly visible from outer space is of complete and utter concern to me as we continue to evaluate the practice of discharging nutrients into our drinking water supplies from a myriad of agricultural interest.

Clearly these dangerous practices must stop. The health and safety of the greater Toledo community was and will ever remain in jeopardy if these practices are allowed to continue. This is not the first time this water supply has been put in jeopardy.

While the City of Toledo under the leadership of Mayor Collins did an incredible job in dealing with this problem the facts are the city must be better prepared to deal with this problem when it is only certain to return. The City has approved a capital improvement plan to address over $314 million in needed upgrades at the Collins Park Water Treatment plant but has only spent $28 million to protect public health.

The treatment plant should have had the granular activated carbon in use at the time of the algae bloom which would have protected the public. Instead the City only deploys granular activated carbon after an emergency. Public Health must and always should be a priority.
