Cancer is plaguing a growing number of Ground Zero first responders and rescuers. The New York Post reports the number of cancer cases in this group has doubled since last year.
There are now about 25-hundred certified cases of cancer among the more than 37-thousand World Trade Center workers and rescuers who have been screened. However, cancer researchers warn against drawing any significant conclusions from the increase.
A doctor with the American Cancer Society says cancer rates go up as people age and firefighters tend to have higher cancer rates in general. A World Trade Center health program provides care and monitoring for those affected.
