Topic: cluster of cases in west sussex/running - crop spraying link?

I have been informed that there is a cluster of cases of cholangiocarcinoma in West Sussex here in the UK.  My Dad lived in Steyning (small village in West Sussex) and we were told by his GP that he had other cases in the village.  If anybody reading this knows of anyone here in W sx also suffering from cc then please can you either add to this thread or contact me via email (jules@honeybunny.plus.com).  Apparantely there has been a recent 'explosion' of cases in the UK and obviously we need to understand why.

My Dad was also enjoyed running and cycling over the Downs (could crop spraying have something to do with it?) - I can't help noticing that there are other sufferers on this site who were also keen runners.

HI Jules,
Just curious if there is any kind of garbage dump or toxic waste site in W Sussex? I'm not familiar with the area, but my mother and my father both died of rare cancers within a week of each other, and both lived in an area where there was a huge landfill.

Best of luck with your research-

I realize my last post may have been confusing - my parents were NOT in W Sussex, but in NY in the States.
