'Death Wish' 2018, Bruce Willis IS BOUND TO BE A WINNER

BRUCE IS BACK!
December 31, 2017

How excruciatingly exciting, Bruce Willis will be in a new Death Wish coming out in March of 2018, and, it promises to be a genuine, rollicking shoot em up!  I think that's what many Americans want - a shoot em up with plenty of violence where the good guy lasts at least long enough to thump on plenty of bad guys!

Whereas the principal character Paul Kersey, Charles Bronson, in the original film was an architect, Bruce portrays a Dr. in this film who gets a first hand eyewitness to the results of shootings in his E.R..  When his wife and daughter are attacked he sees that no one is immune from crime and anyone can become a victim and he sets out to avenge the attack on his family by hunting down the creeps who are responsible for it.

Everybody is talking about this new 'Death Wish' and already the trailers are generating nearly a million hits as of this date!  Critics have already called this film racist, but if any of the criminals in the picture are white it could hardly be racist.  Almost everything these days is called racist.  A grove of trees was recently termed racist and they are scheduled to be removed.  In these days of racist hysteria such labels will definitely not stop me from seeing Bruce Willis in this new thriller.  In fact, I predict this film to be a big box office hit because it has what Americans enjoy, plenty of good fights and struggles!  Who could better deliver that than the great Bruce Willis?!  The people need their hero and somebody needs to be out there to level the playing field, so BRUCE IS BACK!  GO BRUCE!

'Death Wish' from the novel by Brian Garfield

Rita Hayworth, Alzheimer's, Alzheimer's Disease, memory trouble, hair dyes, phenylenediamine

Rita Hayworth, Superstar With An Early Memory Problem


June 27, 2018

If ever there was a beautiful woman, superstar actress Rita Hayworth was it.  With her long red mane of hair, that big beautiful smile and seductive air she didn't have to do much of anything except be there and say her lines, but, she was having trouble remembering her lines as early as the film, 'Pal Joey', 1957, which also starred Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak.

Rita dyed her hair red for many years and it is possible that an osmosis type effect caused seepage of chemicals into her brain area which might have caused some dementia.  The skull is laced with joints and the scalp area is only flesh which solvents and chemicals might be able to penetrate fairly easily, especially over a period of time.

Alzheimer's is a most common form of dementia.


Rita Hayworth, from Gilda
This picture is in the public domain.

The chemical, phenylenediamine, which is usually found in permanent hair dyes is also known as an oxidation dye or peroxide dye.  People who dye their hair with this chemical have a greater risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system.  Exposure to this chemical may cause bladder cancer and is associated with upper digestive, lung, and colon cancers, also. 1., 2., 3., 4.

'Charley Varrick', A Color Movie Loaded With Action - Joe Don Baker Steals The Show

Charley Varrick
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charley_Varrick

'Charley Varrick' is a significant film,  an excellent director Don Siegel film you don't want to miss!  It is set in New Mexico in the script, but was filmed primarily in two small Nevada towns, Dayton and Genoa.  The story of bank robbing gone sour turns into a stalking by mob and rocks from angle to angle, a bit of fake I.D., using a crop dusting plane to pull stuff off, and ducking the law and the mob all at one time.  If you're looking for action Don Siegel doesn't disappoint as the film is loaded with action.  How would you like to be running from the law and ducking a mob hitman at the same time?!

'Charley Varrick' starts out with an action scene that sets the pace for the whole show, and, everything unravels according to what the opening scene causes.

Super bad-guy, Joe Don Baker as Molly really steals the show!  The confrontation inside the trailer with Andy Robinson as Harman Sullivan is stunning, shocking, though not unsurprising.  Any racist comments in this picture only enhance the show, making the bad guy look even badder.

Sheree North, a dynamic actress who has portrayed ill-fated roles has the distinction of playing Jewell Everett, a photographer who moonlights as a counterfeiting expert.

Walter Matthau allegedly took this role when Clint Eastwood turned it down, but reportedly did not like it.  However he was great in this part.

Andy Robinson as Harman Sullivan, the impulsive co-heart of Charley Varrick may have been wiser about throwing the guns away than Charley was, as it turns out. Robinson really outdid himself, getting drunk while waiting on Charley wasn't a good idea, after all.  Probably Andy Robinson should receive an award for his brilliant portrayal of suffering in the beating scene.  He really exhibited some acting skill here which is all too real.

Jacqueline Scott has played other tough gal roles and is superb and very realistic as the ill-fated wheel-man, Nadine.  When you're the wheel-man you can't wimp out if trouble or cops show up or your co-harts inside robbing the bank are liable to get killed, wounded or arrested.  Well, Nadine doesn't wimp out! 

Jacqueline Scott was in 'Firecreek' as Henrietta Cobb with Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda, played on three episodes of 'Perry  Mason' and is a very effective actress with more acting credits.  She is apparently still living today.

Banker John Vernon as Maynard Boyle doesn't know that the meeting is a set up and he is good throughout the movie.

Oh yeah, one more thing - don't let that big guy into the trailer with ya!

Bing Crosby, Mary Martin, Only Forever, RHYTHM ON THE RIVER,  I Don't Want to Cry Any More, Helen Carr,  jazz vocalist Helen Carr, That's For Me

Bing & Mary Martin Sing A Brief Reprise Of  'Only Forever' 22 Years Later

Bing had Mary Martin on his show in 1962 and one of the songs in the medley is a brief reprise of  'Only Forever', 22 years after their 1940 movie, 'RHYTHM ON THE RIVER'.  'Only Forever' eventually topped the Billboard charts for nine weeks.  Not far behind was 'That's For Me', also  from the movie, with a position of #9 for seven weeks. (1)  'RHYTHM ON THE RIVER' is an excellent musical comedy which was hailed as one of Bing's best films.  It actually has a good story and plot-line to go along with the songs and I highly recommend it for viewing, especially during the Thanksgiving - Christmas holidays.  There's no gun violence in this show - just fun, some comedy and singing, and a heartwarming story.

'I Don't Want to Cry Any More' (Victor Schertzinger) sung by Mary Martin is one of the seven songs featured in 'RHYTHM ON THE RIVER' and was also recorded by jazz vocalist, Helen Carr, and has since been recorded by other artists and is an important song because it has dramatic lyrics which many can probably identify with.  It is featured in Helen's album, 'Down in the Depths on the 90th Floor' which is available at ALLMUSIC at allmusic.com.

Jane Powell Update, Too Late Now, Royal Wedding
 
JANE POWELL SINGS 'TOO LATE NOW' -  KIND OF MUSIC PROGRAMS THE TEMPERAMENT OF SOCIETY - COMMENTARY


2-5-2020

By now it should be evident that the kind of music we hear programs us to feel either good, bad, angry, or sad, etc.. Before the advent of rap music people seemed to be on a fairly steady keel, didn't they?  Nowadays with all the rap music booming out messages of hate, rejection and anger, etc. we witness in the news murders, home invasions and assaults galore.  It's like a nation gone mad isn't it?  The rap music and hate music engenders a definite negative mental health.  People in general, not just the music listeners, need to be on an even keel again and what a wonderful place this could be.

Tender love songs can produce a softening or soothing effect and cause the listener to slow down a bit and pause to reflect the sentimental words and nature of the song.  Such effect is a literal blessing and can sometimes prevent a person from going 'over-the-edge', so to speak.  It may be possible that if more of this kind of music was broadcast and listened to instead of hate music we would have a 'kinder and gentler' public overall, therefore increasing public safety through good mental health from good music.

Listen as lovely Jane Powell weaves a wonderful message with her stupendous voice in this sentimental love song, 'Too Late Now' from the film 'Royal Wedding', a Technicolor production.

Jane Powell was taking dancing lessons at two years of age and singing professionally at 12 or earlier.  What a beautiful, amazing talent, and what a marvelous voice.  Instead of gun violence movies why not try a Jane Powell movie during Christmas and Thanksgiving time?  The below video clip is from 'Holiday In Mexico'.

'I Think Of You' is based on a Rachmaninoff Concerto, written in 1941 by Jack Elliott and Don Marcotte, and is stunningly beautiful as sung by lovely Jane Powell, accompanied by legendary pianist Jose Iturbi.  Does it get any better?!!!

Elliott and Marcotte really have a fine composition here and it was also recorded by Frank Sinatra and others.  Lyrics and links are below videos.

I THINK OF YOU

In the hush of evening,
As shadows steal across my lonely room
I think of you, of lovely you.

From afar the music
Of violins comes softly through the gloom
All I can do is think of you.

Oh I can see you standing there before me
And I can hear you whisper you adore me

So when dusk is falling
I live again the loveliness we knew
I think of you, I think of you.

(Musical Interlude)

Oh I can see you standing there before me
And I can hear you whisper you adore me

So when dusk is falling
I live again the loveliness we knew
I think of you, I think of you.

Glenn Miller, Sonja Henie, John Payne, Lynn Bari, Milton Berle, Joan Davis, The Modernaires, The Nicholas Brothers, Dorothy Dandridge, SUN VALLEY SERENADE

MOVIES FOR THE HOLIDAYS - 'SUN VALLEY SERENADE' - TAKE A TRAIN RIDE BACK & ENJOY Glenn Miller's BIG BAND SOUND

Dec. 7, 2018

The music of Glenn Miller and his orchestra highlight this lighthearted comedy-romance musical film starring Glenn Miller, Sonja Henie, John Payne, Lynn Bari, Milton Berle, Joan Davis, The Modernaires, and The Nicholas Brothers with Dorothy Dandridge.

Travel is an important element in a storyline so this film delivers in that department.  After an audition that guarantees the band a booking they are all aboard for a train ride to Sun Valley, Idaho, but not without a new addition, a refugee named Karen Benson portrayed by Sonja Henie.  Karen Benson really has a sparkle in her eyes and has some designs of her own on Ted portrayed by John Payne.  Ted wasn't expecting such a grown up refugee and the arrival of Karen turns his world a bit upside down.

Incidentally, one of the best ways to start a movie is with a song or tune that is well known and well liked and 'SUN VALLEY SERENADE' begins the credits with 'Kiss Polka', a lively tune that moves right along, very welcoming.  Enjoy the music of Glenn Miller and several songs including 'I Know Why', 'Chattanooga Choo Choo', and a specialty act with Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers.   RCA Victor awarded Glenn Miller a Gold Record award for sales of 1.2 million copies of 'Chattanooga Choo Choo', in 1942.  It hit number 1 on the Billboard singles chart in 1941 and became the top record of that year.

The gang's all headed to Sun Valley so climb aboard and take a fun-filled train ride back, back to yesteryear for some big band music when life was less complicated, and enjoy the fantastic ice skating of Sonja Henie and lots of laughs along the way.  This is a show for the entire family with no gun violence, just lots of laughs, fun, music, snow skiing, and an ice skating extravaganza.

Dream of Olwen, The Dream of Olwen, Charles Williams, Robert Bell, While I Live, This Same Garden, Mantovani

'DREAM OF OLWEN' - MUSIC OF GRANDEUR - IS STRIKINGLY BEAUTIFUL


'Dream of Olwen' or 'The Dream of Olwen' was composed by the famous British composer Charles Williams for the film, 'While I Live', a rather sad old British tale of a reincarnated woman, from the play 'This Same Garden' by Robert Bell.

This beautiful music had such a profound effect on audiences and was so widely appreciated that people began calling the film 'The Dream of Olwen' when referring to the film 'While I Live'.  The  Mantovani arrangement is somewhat superior since it incorporates the harp in the introductory sequence.  Some arrangements just use the piano there, but I think the harp is far more effective and adds contrast.

I think you will agree after hearing 'Dream of Olwen' that it has grandeur and is among the most strikingly beautiful pieces of music in existence.  This music is sure to enrich your listening pleasure.

THERE'S ALWAYS A JERK IN LIFE LIKE IN 'DARK PASSAGE', A BOGART FAVORITE - COMMENTARY

June 16, 2019

In real life there's all too often a jerk who ruins life for a person, like the jerk of a guy who followed Humphrey Bogart's character, Vincent Parry, around in the excellent Bogart favorite, 'Dark Passage'.  Such a jerk often waits in the background watching, stalking, waiting, following a person to see what's up, and gain an advantage.  How many many persons throughout history must have been victimized by such a bloodsucking loser as this kind of jerk who's always lurking nearby.  Sometimes you can't see him and sometimes you don't even know who to look for, but he's often right back there observing things as the character 'Baker' was in 'Dark Passage'.

When your affairs get messed up and you begin to wonder, "now how in the world did that happen?", there's probably an explanation for the disaster, a sinister person was behind it.  Some folks may go through their entire life not knowing who is sabotaging them.

Baker was portrayed by a good actor named Clifton Young who unfortunately died in a hotel fire when he fell asleep while smoking.  He was only 33 years of age with quite a few films to his credit, a good talent gone too soon.

Note: this is a Bogart and Bacall movie.  Bogart was reportedly the highest paid actor in Hollywood about the time 'Dark Passage' was filmed.  He reportedly earned $450,000. dollars a year.

Finally, in the story, I think Bogart, as Parry, noticed Baker's wild seat covers in the jalopy that he'd seen before and began putting 2 and 2 together.  He had a tail on him that was actually rather casual, just business as far as the jerk crook was concerned.  Without spoiling the story I'll just say this is about an innocent man who gets plastic surgery, a face-lift to completely alter his looks and change his identity.  Nowadays it would be more difficult to change identities with all the markers placed in our bodies, but it might be possible to do.

Agnes Moorehead portrays 'Madge', another  manipulator who's always causing trouble.  There are impetuous people like that in real life who always seem to be getting into a person's way and life.  Madge is incredibly wicked and turns out to be a key to Vincent Parry's dilemma.

Incidentally, isn't it amazing how some bum cop always seems to turn up at the wrong moment as actor Doug Kennedy's character, the detective, did in the diner?

'Dark Passage', filmed in San Francisco, is golden to many movie buffs and historians just as the film 'Vertigo' is golden.  It takes you to a beautiful place and a time which was less complicated, less confused, when there were men and women and that's all.  It will leave you fairly spellbound until the end, thanks to excellent actors like Agnes Moorehead, Houseley Stevenson and others.  'Dark Passage' contains a few life lessons as I call them, things that illustrate real life, making the film more genuine, of course.

Hugh Hefner, Playboy, Playboy Magazine, Freedom of Speech, 1st Amendment, Dorothy Stratten, Peter Bogdanovich

WITH PLAYBOY FOUNDER, HEFNER, GONE THE LEFT ATTACKED AMERICA & THE 1ST AMENDMENT
- VIDEO - DOROTHY STRATTEN

You may have noticed that after the passing of Hugh Hefner, Playboy Magazine founder, the attacks on America and the 1st Amendment suddenly intensified from the left.  The outright, overt attacks on freedom of speech invaded from big tech companies as some of the last icons who supported freedom of speech passed.

It now occurs to me that the attacks from the left on freedom of speech would surely have been rebutted by such greats as Hugh Hefner who likely would have published opposing articles against the left and what the big tech companies are doing.  So if you thought Playboy was just another girlie magazine you are wrong.  For years, despite its controversial content, Playboy supported freedom of speech, stood up against censorship and even went to court over it, winning.

Whatever Hugh Hefner did with his women was his business and their business.  As far as causing the death of Dorothy Stratten, no blame should be laid on
Hugh Hefner.  Hefner's company merely promoted young women who are/were good looking into stardom, got them noticed, and sent them on their way, giving them money awards, furs, cars, and enabling them to get movie contracts and much notoriety.  Whatever the girls chose to do with their notoriety and success was largely up to them.  There is nothing wrong with pointing out beautiful women, photographing that beauty and suggesting such women for movies, photographs, etc., other media events.

Bogdanovich

Bogdanovich, must have known that if he took Dorothy Stratten from her husband that her husband would be enraged and he did it anyway by increasing her part in a movie.  That was the start of getting her away from Paul, her husband.  Dorothy was evidently drawn to the wealth and power of
Bogdanovich, just as the late Phylis Isley, aka Jennifer Jones gravitated over to David O. Selznick, jew.  Peter and Dorothy should have waited until Dorothy's marriage ended before it was known they were a couple, and, Dorothy should never have gone to visit her husband, Paul, without attorneys and witnesses.

Bogdanovich created a wonderful movie, 'They All Laughed", starring Ben Gazzara, Audrey Hepburn, John Ritter, and Dorothy Stratten.  It is a comical, uplifting film which highlights the genius of Peter Bogdanovich.  The comedic relief of John Ritter and the dramatic moods of Ben Gazzara and Audrey Hepburn are set against the beauty of the dreamy gorgeous Dorothy Stratten.  Although there was too much cigarette smoking, hats off to Peter Bogdanovich for a wonderful film.  Viewers can look at this film and remember these great actors who are all gone now.


http://www.adherents.com/people/pb/Peter_Bogdanovich.html

Paul Snider may not have committed the so-called murder-suicide of himself and Dorothy Stratten.  There may have been drug deals involved since there were medical people living in the house with Paul.  Dorothy may have been an unwitting victim of a drug deal gone bad.  She and Paul could have been killed by a third party.

The Bottom Line

So they had to get 'Hef' and a few other greats out of the way before the left could begin the attacks and so it has begun.  The protection of The First Amendment for Americans was unrivaled by Playboy Magazine under the directorship of Hefner.  See how that works?  If large tech companies can ruin or eliminate a person's income by censorship they have violated the First Amendment, Freedom of Speech.  Google, Facebook and a few others should be completely eliminated.  Zuckerberg, jew. A few Jews with their wealth and power are screwing up the world, literally.

I like to think that Dorothy Stratten, a part of Playboy, with her busty beauty, was part of the Freedom of Speech movement.

Nat King Cole, To Whom It May Concern, A Thousand Thoughts of You, Nelson Riddle, love songs, love song, sentimental songs, lung cancer, cigarettes
 
FROM HIS ALBUM, 'TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN', 'A THOUSAND THOUGHTS OF YOU'. NAT KING COLE - VIDEO LINK


COMMENTARY

One of the best singers of romantic songs is Nat King Cole.  Nat takes a song which might sound silly sung by other artists and puts some serious and meaningful tone and phrasing to it.

This song, 'A Thousand Thoughts Of You', is an original love song like many of Nat Cole's songs which are unique and beautiful and somewhat rare - that is they are not the common, everyday, run-of-the-mill known songs on the market.  I would call these songs very successful because they are dreamily beautiful and typify and emphasize Nat's singing style and ability. I urge you to explore the many sentimental songs done by Nat. There are quite a few, with full rich and beautiful orchestration, some conducted by the excellent Nelson Riddle.

Nat King Cole died at the early age of 45 from lung cancer.  He had been a heavy cigarette smoker.  How unfortunate is that, to give up your life at such an early age because of sucking on cigarettes?  Nat was another victim of the old cigarette myth that smoking is exhilaratingly good for you, but actually it is deadly.

FAMOUS LUNG CANCER VICTIMS - CIGARETTE SUCKERS,  THE ULTIMATE SUCKERS - LIZA MINNELLI
- RUSH LIMBAUGH

CIGARETTES ARE KILLERS


1-23-2020

Many, if not most, people who suck on cigarettes eventually get respiratory problems or plain old lung cancer.  Lung cancer is a devastating form of illness that wrecks the body and often starves the victim patient of oxygen, air to breathe.  You'd think by now that with all the information available on cigarettes and lung cancer that people would care more about their health than to suck on cigarettes.

The following list has mostly famous people, actors, singers, etc., but there are many more everyday non-famous people who become lung cancer victims and die of the disease or some respiratory related issue.  Most are victims of lung cancer, but some have other cancers that may have originated from smoking cigarettes.

With all the information available nowadays you have to admit that cigarette suckers are definitely the ultimate suckers, taken in by advertising and movies showing cigarette smoking.  When you stop smoking your body immediately tries to repair itself and replace the cilia within your lungs that clean the lungs of foreign matter.  Without those hair-like structures inside your lungs you cannot throw off various contaminants that enter the lungs.  American cigarettes are laced with an oxidizer, potassium nitrate, also used in gunpowder.  When you smoke them you are oxidizing your lung cells, burning them up and killing the cilia in your lungs.  If cigarettes didn't have an oxidizer they would go out when left in an ashtray, but they continue to burn, don't they?  Smoking causes a rise in blood pressure, constantly boosting the blood pressure up to an artificial level.

I was very disappointed to see Liza Minnelli, such a talented performer, sucking on a cigarette not so long ago.  She had already experienced health issues and the cigarettes probably compound her health problems. This Infoeditor cares enough about you, the public, to warn you of how dangerous cigarette smoking is.  Will you be ready for that surgery and short life afterwards, or that iron lung when the time rolls around?  Stop killing yourself - stop smoking.  I know we aren't going to live forever, but there is something in longevity and feeling well to the end.

When you see someone with a cigarette burning in their fingertips you can think, "there's a real dumb sucker".  In fact I have come to believe such persons are bad luck.

DID CHEMOTHERAPY OR CANCER KILL SINGER DICK HAYMES? VIDEO - 'I WISH I KNEW' & COMMENTARY

FAMOUS SINGER DICK HAYMES IS THE BEST BARITONE VOICE IN HISTORY.

Feb. 26, 2020

Famous singer Dick Haymes was upbeat and positive when he told his daughter he had cancer.  He reportedly told her he expected to make a full recovery and told a magazine that his malignant tumor on his lung responds well to treatment.  However, during chemotherapy treatment Dick was worried about not being able to do the active things with his son that he used to and said he felt drained, as in drained of energy.

Finally, Dick refused to have any more chemotherapy treatments, realizing he was dying he opted to spend that time with his friends and family.  Did Dick feel so lousy from the chemo that he instinctively knew it was not helping, but killing him instead?  I think he gave chemo a try and realized it had damaged him further and gave it up. 

Chemotherapy affects the vital function of the body's organs.  If it kills you in the process of killing the cancer what good is it?  Many people have died in two years or less after starting chemotherapy.

Dick Haymes received promises and assurances from medical doctors, no doubt, but ultimately paid a very final price for taking chemotherapy treatment.  How long would Dick have lived if he had avoided chemo and simply given up smoking and started on herbal supplements is anyone's guess, but surely it would have been a longer life than he lived.

VIDEO - Judge for yourself who has the best baritone voice of all. Dick's voice is smooth and resonant with perfect phrasing and lots of vibrato.  This is from 'Diamond Horseshoe' (also billed as 'Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe'), a 1945 Technicolor musical film starring Betty Grable and Dick Haymes.

NANCY SINATRA'S FABULOUS VERSION OF 'At The End Of A Rainbow'


April 19, 2020

'At The End Of A Rainbow' is also known as 'THE END' and has been recorded by others including the late, and excellent singer Earl Grant.

Nancy delivers that good, clear phrasing that her dad is so famous for and the listeners and fans don't get cheated out of the meaning of the song.

One of the best versions of this song is on Nancy's 'Nancy in London' album and is great with a real effective crescendo toward the end, a beautiful recording with a marvelous accompaniment.  Be sure to get the album.

DID WE LOSE AN ICONIC SINGER TO HAIR DYE?  EYDIE GORME - 'SOFTLY, AS I LEAVE YOU'


The world lost an extraordinary pop singer with the passing of Eydie Gorme in 2013.  I don't keep up with people so I didn't know she had been ill and thought what a loss for everyone.  Eydie of the duo Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme was also a terrific solo artist who recorded many albums.  I could go on and on about her three octave voice range, her smooth, expressive delivery with excellent vibrato, but perhaps a listen to her version of 'Softly' will explain it all. Surely Eydie and Steve have warmed many hearts with their performances and songs.  I remember liking Steve and Eydie on The Carol Burnett Show, and on other productions.  VIDEO BELOW

According to information Steve and Eydie of The Lawrence Foundation helped build the very first pre-natal care unit in California at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.  I guess many people and babies have benefitted from their generosity.  It is inspiring when entertainers and others of wealth help others so graciously.  If you wish to give to The Lawrence Foundation the information is below. (4.)

It is said that Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme are/were two of the kindest entertainers in show business.  There's also a story about a young mother who needed a car to take a job and Steve and Eydie gave her their deceased son's car to help her.  Probably there are other stories of their kindness.

According to articles online Eydie Gorme had inoperable cancer with tumors on her pancreas, liver, and elsewhere.

Surely Eydie dyed her hair for her appearances in show business.  I just wonder how many years she dyed it.  The chemical, phenylenediamine, which is usually found in permanent hair dyes is also known as an oxidation dye or peroxide dye.  People who dye their hair with this chemical have a greater risk of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph system.  Exposure to this chemical may cause bladder cancer and is associated with upper digestive, lung, and colon cancers, also.  I can imagine this chemical could also cause liver and panreatic cancer as well.
