During my research, I found that Coos County, OR, has a very high cancer rate when compared with the rest of the U.S. Do you have any ideas about why? I'm thinking of moving there.

Are there a lot of power lines? A lot of smokers? Any big factories?

'They' say smokers but no one seems to address poor air quality in regards to logging brush pile burns and even worse is on any drive thru the Bay Area one notices residents are burning toxins/plastics/etc. in their inside the home stoves/fireplaces and it seems to be tolerated. In particular, there is a big smokestack between 'a church and large box store' that, just the other morning last week, dark smoke was pouring into the sky and that sure didn't look like paper to me.
