How Did I Get Leukemia?

In some cases of Leukemia the cause is not known.

"Experts say that different leukemias have different causes. The following are either known causes, or strongly suspected causes:

Artificial ionizing radiation

Viruses - HTLV-1 (human T-lymphotropic virus) and HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)

Benzene and some petrochemicals

Alkylating chemotherapy agents used in previous cancers

Maternal fetal transmission (rare)

Hair dyes

Genetic predisposition - some studies researching family history and looking at twins have indicated that some people have a higher risk of developing leukemia because of a single gene or multiple genes.

Down syndrome - people with Down syndrome have a significantly higher risk of developing leukemia, compared to people who do not have Down syndrome. Experts say that because of this, people with certain chromosomal abnormalities may have a higher risk."


In my case, I happen to believe it is because of exposure to benzene and petrochemicals due to a long term exposure to the toxic waste of the Love Canal located in Niagara Falls, NY where I grew up.
