It has been announced by a federal health official’s ruling on Friday that 50 types of cancer would now be added to the list of sicknesses that are under a $4.3 billion fund, says a recent report published recently in the British journal The Lancet.
According to the findings, the decision has been taken after considering the concerns of thousands of people with cancer who claim that their illness is a result of exposure to the dust cloud or toxic fumes released during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The fund has been commenced so as to help and compensate such people only, the report finds. It is being said by Dr. John Howard, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health who took the decision that volunteers, schoolchildren and rescue workers would now be able to apply for money that is to be paid to such cancer sufferers.
Also, it has been told that the decision was recommended by a scientific and technical advisory committee also, who said that 50 specific types of cancer should be deemed as World Trade Center related.
