Cancronesi was a guest of the doormat Fazio. He said that incinerators have no effect on health. He has to answer, sooner or later to those who are sick and to their relatives. For decades, this sandwich man has been dealing with finance, with companies, and occasionally with health. He is not informed of the facts and he has a few tiny conflicts of interests. For him incinerators and cancer institutes are a virtuous cycle of creating illness. A business. He causes it and cures it.
The Veronesi Foundation has as partners:
- ACEA - multiutility with incinerators
- ENEL – nuclear , coal and oil electricity generating stations
- VEOLIA Environment - costruction incinerators.
Many doctors don’t agree with him and that’s not just in Italy.
The French "Conseil Nationale de l'ordre des medicins" and the main associations of French family doctors, "praticiens" have asked for “a moratorium in relation to the construction of new incinerators. Incineration produces hundreds of toxic substances that are liberated into the atmosphere. (article in Le Monde)

Doctors and Italian associations have written an open letter to the European Commissioner Dimas
Respected Commissioner Dimas,
We are Italian citizens and we are dismayed by what is happening in our country, which has by now become the laughing stock of the world for the refuse affair in Campania. More than 14 years of it being dealt with under emergency conditions have absolutely not resolved anything, in fact it has aggravated the problem ever more. It is a problem that has absolutely nothing of an emergency because in every country in the world, rubbish is produced.
The EU directives provide a clear hierarchy of ways of going about getting rid of rubbish: reduction, recycling, reusing, and just for the remaining amount, the recovery of energy and not just by incineration. Unfortunately the crisis in Naples seems to be completely instrumental in getting incineration in our country as a privileged method for solving the “refuse problem” and thus turning upside down what the EU itself suggests. In Italy, apart from in individual virtuous realities thanks to responsible administrators, there has not been door to door collection that puts the responsibility on the citizen and that can guarantee a good quality of the products of separation of the refuse with consequent effective recovery
Incineration continues to get incentives only in our country, as a renewable source of energy, in spite of the minimum energy recovery of these plant (that mostly are simply for rubbish), the serious damage to the environment and to the economy that even recently have been recorded (milk contaminated beyond the permitted limits with dioxin in Brescia, territory that is already seriously polluted, where the biggest incinerator in Italy is in operation) and even though the kilowatt hours produced by burning refuse, is that associated with the highest emission of carbon dioxide.
There are numerous studies that have provided evidence of the damage to health of the population exposed to this, that no one can exclude that even with the “new” plant that have led thousands and thousands of doctors, citizens, intellectuals, environmental associations to take up positions even with papers and denunciations to the Magistracy, so that simply what is done in the whole of the civilised world is done, and the safeguarding of the environment is given top priority for our protection and for the protection of those who will come after us.
Commissioner Dimas, we beg you, listen to us. Do all that is in your power so as to avoid this umpteenth disaster, so that choices are made that look forward rather than look back to the age of fire.”
