No Clear Link Between 9/11 and Cancer, Study Finds

NEW YORK CITY — There is no clear link between the toxic dust that billowed from Ground Zero on 9/11 and many of the cancers now covered by the Zadroga Act, according to a major new study set to be published Wednesday.
The study, which is the largest to date, looked at nearly 56,000 people enrolled in the city’s World Trade Center Health registry, including first responders, recovery workers and Lower Manhattan residents, and found no significant difference in overall cancers rates compared to people who were not exposed, as of 2008.
