Why are you so obsessed with Sharon's personal life?
The article you posted finishes with " That makes the fungus a
serious threat to transplant patients, to people with immune deficiencies, to
patients with lung disease, and to other critically ill patients." Immune dificiencies can be caused
by exposure to pesticides, chemicals, illness, antibiotic use, even fungus.
Why do you have such a problem with the deceit in science used in defense litigation being exposed? I
confess that I did not win my case, but it was due to my inability to afford legal counsel in a state
where landlords tend to win more often than lose despite our Civil Code. Also, my prior exposures,
again due to grossly negligent landlords, made it a bit more complicated even though, theoretically,
in torts you take the victim as you find them. The harassment I experienced was indicative that the
defense found my case a serious enough threat that it could set a precedent and open the flood gates
for similar litigation, at least that I was told in confidence by a couple of attornies with years of
practice behind them. Had this element of it, the defense and industry promulgation of false science
to the courts, been already exposed, I might have had a more level playing field.
The people that poisoned me not only made money off of me and cost me money, they reduced me to
poverty and poor health and they do it to others as well; do you wish to see more people like me
reduced to charity at the taxpayers' expense?
