What killed Colette Chuda?

Though cancer is most often associated with older Americans, from infancy to young adulthood it kills more kids than any other disease. The rate of cancer in children increased 10.8 percent between 1973 and 1990. Each year, there are 6,500 new cases of cancer in children under 15; 2,200 die. And, estimates Dr. Phillip Landrigan in his book, Raising Children Toxic Free , 80 to 90 percent of all human cancers are caused by exposure to environmental carcinogens.
