I’m sure that you‘ll agree that today, more than ever, we are constantly bombarded with advertising. Whether it be on TV, radio, the internet, email, text, or social media. You just can’t escape companies peddling all types of products and services. In their minds, it’s simply a numbers game. The more times you see something, there is a better likelihood that you’ll make a purchase.

Our Firefighters Are in Danger!

Fire Fighting Foam Linked to Cancer

Since the 1970s, aqueous film-forming foam, or AFFF for short, has been used in both civilian and military firefighting. It suppresses fire by creating a blanket, or barrier, between any flammable vapors, such as gasoline, and the oxygen that they need to ignite. Extremely effective, it has been used quite often by our brave firefighters. Unfortunately, the CDC, EPA, and the American Cancer Society have all noted that certain PFAS chemicals are hazardous and may be linked to cancer. They are known as “forever chemicals” since it is difficult for them to break down in the human body and within the environment, possibly contaminating the soil and groundwater. Consequently, it continues to be a danger long after its use. Firefighters who are exposed to this deadly product have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancers and illnesses including breast, bladder, colorectal, kidney, liver, lymphoma, pancreatic, prostate, testicular and thryoid. Presently, two of the world’s largest chemical producing companies (3M and DuPont) are now being sued nationwide. Lawyers allege that they knew for decades their products were dangerous, yet failed to warn people about the risk of its use.

If you or a loved one presently or previously worked in an area where AFFFs are utilized and have been diagnosed with cancer or any of the other referenced conditions, our law firm and co-counsel team are available to help. We accept these cases on a contingency basis, so there are no upfront fees or costs; we’ll even obtain your medical records. Plus, our attorneys only collect money if there is a settlement or court award against the negligent companies. One has nothing to lose, so call us today to see if you qualify Protect Your Digital Legacy Leave Behind a Path for Your Loved Ones

Create a digital log. You must keep a record of all your digital profiles and

login information for your loved ones before you die. You’ll help your family avoid having to jump through hoops with various companies just to retrieve your data after you’re gone. Anything from the cable company to your bank login needs to be recorded. Then, be sure to tell your family this information exists and how to find it. Use a password manager. Since passwords are necessary, companies have created password managers to keep all of your login information secure. Not all of them are alike. The most secure options are cloud-based managers, which allow access from any location, and those that require two-factor authentication, which may use a fingerprint or a code sent to a phone or email on file. There are many to choose from, so do your own research. Wired.com recommends 1Password for those just starting out. Talk to your attorney. If you opt out of using a password manager, an estate planning attorney can incorporate your digital logins into an estate plan. This will keep your data secure and accessible by those who need it after your death. Even if you don’t utilize one, it’s wise to notify your lawyer. They will become your family’s go-to resource for guidance. Feel free to contact us for a referral in this practice area.

When creating an estate plan, there are many assets to consider. Most people think about their homes, retirement accounts, and heirlooms, but one vital thing is often overlooked: their digital lives. Today, we manage so much of our lives through our social media. Using usernames/passwords, helps safeguard them. Two-factor authentication provides an enhanced level of security which is encouraged. What happens to this data after you pass? Will your family know how to access them and therefore log in to your most valuable accounts? How can you make sure the right people have access to your passwords and digital data without making yourself vulnerable? Find out here!

Killer Tomatoes Trials


Killer Tomatoes Trials Falsely Accused and Condemned

Surely, you’ve heard about the Salem witch trials in Massachusetts, but did you hear how the people of Salem, New Jersey, who put tomatoes on trial in the 1800s, believing that they were poisonous? It sounds like the 1978 movie “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” Even back in the 16th century, people were very suspicious of tomatoes. As if enough confusion didn’t already surround the tomato — is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? Deemed a fruit but treated as a vegetable, the tomato is a bit of a contradiction. To make matters worse, in the 1800s, it was discovered the stems and leaves of tomatoes contained tomatine, a toxin. Within the fruit itself, a small amount of the toxin exists in a much lower concentration. However, people feared being poisoned if they were to consume any part of a tomato. Today, we know there isn’t nearly enough of the toxin to create a problem for us. In 1820, wary of the poisonous red fruit, tomatoes were put on trial in the town courthouse, made to answer for their toxicity. But, there’s always one who goes against the grain. Colonel Robert Gibbon Johnson, a farmer and historian, refused to believe that the tomato was harmful and ate them on a regular basis. In fact, he even hosted tomato competitions, granting a prize to the person who could grow the largest tomatoes. People thought he was simply mad.

To prove his point and redeem his reputation, he showed up at the Salem tomato trial with a giant basket of tomatoes, frantically eating them in front of the crowd. He ate the entire basket full and stood before everyone, as healthy as can be, hoping to coax the crowd into dropping the “charges” on the healthy fruit. When he maintained his health days, weeks, and even months later, tomatoes were no longer regarded as evil and poisonous. Today, the tomato is actually the fourth most popular “vegetable”; after all, how could we live without salsa and marinara sauce?
