Queer Eye star Bobby Berk has revealed that his father has been diagnosed with cancer for the fourth time this week.

The interior designer, 38, went to his Instagram on Sunday to share a collection of throwback photos of himself as a child.

In a photo of himself with a helmet, Bobby accused water pollution as a possible cause for his father's diagnosis and claimed that his parents were & # 39; manipulated & # 39; to sign a confidentiality agreement (NDA).

He wrote: & # 39; My father was diagnosed with cancer for the 4th time this week. & # 39;

Bobby further claimed: & # 39; @Conoco @ConocoPhillips contaminated the spring water of my family home with propane, butane, methane and other chemicals that they had irresponsibly stored in underground caves. & # 39;

& # 39; We drank it for years without knowing it, because it gradually trickled in and we got a nose for it. Only when a friend came by, took a sip of water and immediately spit it out, did we know.

& # 39; At the time, there was so much in it that we could set a glass of water on fire. Can I know for sure that this is the cause of my father's cancer?

& # 39; No, but it could be, and it scares me and the rest of my future state of health.

& # 39; PS … this helmet was one of the many ways they tried to buy us off to keep us quiet. They may have manipulated my parents into signing an NDA, but I certainly didn't.

& # 39; The number of people from that area where I have seen cancer die over the years is huge. Much much higher than the normal rate. #waterpollution #pollution #corporategreed #millermo. & # 39;

Bobby & # 39; s co-star, Jonathan Van Ness, responded quickly to the Instagram post when he revealed that they had learned a lot about water pollution with Erin Brockovich on his podcast, Getting Curious With JVN.

He said: & # 39; We learned a lot about this with @the_real_erin_brockovich on @curiouswithjvn – it is really a huge growing factor now, since the EPA and Trump are currently trying to dismantle the Clean Water Act – love you Bobby! Use that voice. & # 39;

To which Bobby added: & # 39; Do you want to help @the_real_erin_brockovich? & # 39; followed by a kiss emoji.

Brockovich became famous when she started a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company in 1993 without formal legal training.

The successful lawsuit inspired the 2000 film, Erin Brockovich, where she was played by Julia Roberts.

Bobby also shared a picture of himself as a child with his mother, he wrote it: & # 39; Which Sunday would be complete without a discarded ecclesiastical map photo?

Bobby spoke regularly and frankly about his religious upbringing on Queer Eye, revealing that he ran away from home at the age of 15 and moved to the nearby town of Springfield, later moved to New York where his career began.

The talent interior designer told The Chaise Lounge in 2016: & # 39; When I was 15, I ran away from home, to leave the small farming village where I was, to move to the & # 39; major city & # 39; of Springfield, MO. & # 39;

During the first episode of season two of Queer Eye, Bobby told make-up participant Tammye, a church resident who lives in Georgia, about his negative experiences growing up.

He said: & # 39; I really grew up religious. When everyone found out (I was gay), they completely turned their back on me. & # 39;

However, it is believed that Bobby has since reconnected with his mother and father, since he has shared several photos of them on his Instagram.

In a moment of himself with his father in August, who was wearing cowboy hats, he wrote it: & # 39; The one I have all learned from ♥ ️ #dad #farmer #rancher. & # 39;

While writing a portrait of his father in June: & # 39; Couldn't let the day go by without saying Happy Father & Day to all fathers there and a special shout out to my own ❤️ # fathers day. & # 39 ;

In May, he also celebrated Mother's Day by sharing a throwback photo of himself with his mother, writing it: & # 39; Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and a special shout out to my own ❤️ # Mother's Day. & # 39;
