The ABTA Online Seminar on Brain Tumor Causes
Why me? What did I do wrong? What caused my (or my loved one’s) brain tumor?
I thought that maybe I got mine from falling on some black ice and whacking my head on the sidewalk. But maybe, just maybe, it was all those annual dental X-rays I got growing up?
Other common worries include the effects of allergies, antihistamines and cell phones.
In this free, online American Brain Tumor Association webinar, Ms. Jill S. Barnholtz-Sloan, PhD, Associate Director for Bioinformatics at Case Western Reserve University discusses all the statistics and evidence surrounding the incidence and possible cause of different types of brain tumors.
Like almost everything else associated with cancer and brain tumors, the answers aren’t particularly clear-cut.
At the same time, I want to make sure all of you know about this webinar, so here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8lG8nWwHz0&feature=youtu.be
FYI – Dr. Barnholtz-Sloan uses precise and somewhat complex medical terms in her talk, which can be off-putting to some.
