More than 45 cancers, including breast and those affecting the respiratory system, should be covered by the Zadroga 9/11 health law, an advisory committee recommended yesterday.
The World Trade Center Health Program Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee also said that rare and childhood cancers should be covered but did not choose to include pancreatic, prostate or brain cancers.
