Caracas.- Hugo Chávez says that the United States may have found a way to cause his cancer and that of other Latin American leaders.
The Venezuelan president, who had surgery in June to remove a tumor, speculated in a nationally televised speech about the possibility that America has developed “the technology” to induce cancer, Chávez said it was “very, very, very strange” that so many left-wing Latin American leaders have been diagnosed with cancer, including Chávez, Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff and former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
“It would not be strange if they had developed the technology to induce cancer and nobody knew about it until now … I don’t know. I’m just reflecting,” Chávez said. “But this is very, very, very strange … it’s a bit difficult to explain this, to reason it, including using the law of probabilities.”
