According to reports, New York callously abandoned their first responders who were sickened and/or who died as a result of the toxic air on 9/11. Now it’s reported that nearly “10,000 people have a cancer diagnosis that is somehow linked to breathing in hazardous particles following the September 11” terrorist attacks. This fact was confirmed by the New York Post.
After the World Trade Towers fell, the breathing in of “leaked jet fuel, asbestos, cement dust and glass shards” caused irreparable damage to those who came to the rescue. The World Trade Center Health Program has found that this inhaling “led to cancer proliferation among at least 9,795 first responders and other New Yorkers.” The death toll calculated by the terrorists on that day has gone up quite a bit over the years, a fact often overlooked in the tally.
Why were there not enough respirators available for all of the men and woman serving? If there were enough, why were they not used and given to the workers?
Why has more not been done to compensate them instead of denying their claims in order to save money? These are questions that a lot of people are asking.
Asbestos alone is dreadfully toxic and can be a direct path to lung cancer. This existed in the construction of the building, yet where were the proper breathing apparatus?
Prison Planet has reported that in “2015 the number of 9/11 cancer-linked patients stood at 3,204 while the next year it jumped to 8,188.”
“We get these referrals 15 to 20 times a week,” stated Dr. Michael Crane, medical director of the WTC Health Program. He added that in the 17 years since the horror, older people would be reporting such symptoms (as they are) and time has allowed the damage to manifest.
“In an aging population, you’re going to see a rising cancer rate, no matter what,” the doctor added.
Experts told the outlet that “more than 1,700 affected persons have died, including 420 of those stricken with cancer” since the attack. This is horrific when it is remembered that 3,000 people died on 9/11. In other words, over half as many more have died in the rescue attempt.
Those who were exposed to the toxins face “thyroid cancer and skin melanoma and also face a higher risk of bladder cancer.” Those in the Big Apple just living there will suffer “higher-than-normal rates of breast cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Leukemia and other blood-cell disorders have also been noted to be on the rise,” Dr. Crane also said.
