Few an­swers in 9/11 can­cer study

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

The most com­pre­hen­sive study of po­ten­tial World Trade Cen­ter-re­lated can­cers sug­gests pos­si­ble links with sev­eral forms of the disease, but raises more ques­tions than an­swers and likely won’t end the de­bate over whether the at­tacks were really a cause. While the study pro­poses pos­si­ble links to prostate, thy­roid and a type of blood can­cer among res­cue work­ers ex­posed to toxic de­bris from the ter­ror­ist at­tacks, there were few to­tal can­cers and even the study’s lead­ers say the re­sults “should be in­ter­preted with cau­tion.”
