Probe Launched After Nearly 100 Tumor Cases Associated With New Jersey School

(RepublicanDaily.org) – Cancer is among the biggest public health challenges in the United States. There are many different types, and many various factors that can lead someone to develop the disease. However, when a large concentration of people in a certain area get sick, chances are there’s a common denominator. That appears to be the case in a story coming out of New Jersey.

On Thursday, April 14, the New York Post released a report on a strange pattern of high cancer rates among alumni of a school in New Jersey. At least 94 past students and staff of the Colonia High School in Woodbridge, have developed highly rare brain tumors in recent years.

Al Lupiano (50) is among those to have developed a tumor, as are his wife and sister, the latter of whom passed away earlier this year at 44 years of age. Lupiano promised his sister he would fight to discover the truth of why so many people with links to the school have developed brain cancer. Last week, local officials agreed to Lupiano’s demands for an investigation into the matter.

Experts are now in the process of conducting radiological tests of various types on the school’s campus. One testing protocol involves the sampling of air to check for the presence of radon.

Time will tell if the new investigation yields any positive results.
