9/11 responders have increased risk of cancer

Dr. Jacqueline Moline, director of the World Trade Center Health Program in Queens, talks about a third federally sponsored study in which she and her team of researchers found a 15 percent overall increased risk of cancer among 9/11 responders. The study, to be published online April 23 in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, also found blood, lymph and soft-tissue cancer rates were much higher than expected among the nearly 21,000 World Trade Center rescuers and recovery workers involved in the review.
