Number of 9/11 responders and others who were at Ground Zero with cancer has tripled

The number of 9/11 responders and others on the scene who have been diagnosed with cancer has tripled in less than three years, it has emerged. In January 2014 the number of people in the WTC Health Program with cancer was just 1,822. Now it’s a massive 5,441, with 6,378 separate cancers recorded. ‘It’s been steady for at least the last year and a half – we’re seeing new people here being certified for cancer 10-15 times week. That’s every week,’ Dr Michael Crane, medical director of the program, told the NY Post.
