Concrete Cancer - is this page needed[edit]

I think that maybe this page should be removed from Wiki. The term "concrete cancer" is highly colloquial and not commonly used. The discussion of various forms of deterioration of concrete belongs elsewhere, specifically under a subject heading of "concrete durability". This should be a sub-section of the article on "concrete" but as yet appears not be properly composed. There is a section on "alkali aggregate reaction"

Concrete needs serious help in Wiki!!

I am quite against this suggestion to merge concrete cancer and concrete degradation: although the term may be colloquial, it is largely used, and more specific than the general degradation that can occur from bacterial corrosion, physical damage, thermal damage, etc... This article concentrates on carbonatation due to water penetration and Alkali–silica reaction. I think the subject deserves its own article. — Ludopedia(Talk) 05:37, 10 September 2015 (UTC) (a search of the term "concrete cancer" returns 53 200 000 results ! search google)
