Beau Biden's Brian Cancer & Burn Pits

Beau is reported to have died from glioblastoma multiforme (GM)

Joe thinks it was from burn pit exposure.

I have found very little information supporting the link. Although fairly common (within brain cancers), I found that GM has extensive research without linkage to "environmental" causes. The exception was linkage to Agent Orange (VN era). I did find suggested associations with specific genetic syndromes.

The increased survival is likely due to a combination of factors:

Causes of Glioblastoma Multiforme

In most cases, the exact underlying cause of glioblastoma multiforme is unknown. In rare cases, it can occur in people with certain genetic syndromes, such as neurofibromatosis type 1, Turcot syndrome and Li Fraumeni syndrome. In these cases, affected people usually have other characteristic features of the condition that are all caused by mutations in a specific gene.
