Dear All, Carl Stiles, who stayed with his fiance, Jude, at my house last year after his home was contaminated, passed away yesterday. He had been fighting health issues ever since finding high levels of barium and arsenic in their well water, and fought hard and suffered much in the last 2 years, has lost the fight tonight. His widow, Jude, asked that memorial donations be made to GDAC. I thought you would be touched. – paula Carl Stiles had intestinal cancer which he blames on Chesapeake’s gas drilling. He and his wife abandoned their home last November at the urging of a toxicologist who found barium, arsenic, and VOCs (volatile organic chemicals) in Carl’s blood. Strontium, uranium and radium were found in their water. They’ve been told to expect to get leukemia within two years.”
