I'm replying to your post on the Benzene doccs thread but started a new one to prevent a hi-jack.
Interesting about the virus - I too read about this somewhere. When I ws dx my doctor thought it had probably triggered about 10 - 14 months earlier. This would coincide with a period of a particulally nasty virus I had, completely wiped me out. It also a very stressful time of my life. Which looking back was a bunch of stuff that having CML has taught me not to stress about.
As for radiation - I told my kids not to bring that stuff home from scvhool. Seriously other than the usual dental x-rays and a few x-rays as a child I have had no known exposure to readiation. Possible exposure to benzene but only in the same way as most of the population i.e. fueling the car, possible cleaning products in the past.
Who knows - it appears there are several possible ways for this malfunction to occur.
