Health Dept. Data Shows Cancer Clusters Near Seneca Landfill

Water Front recently published several stories about cancer clusters near the Seneca Meadows landfill, the state’s largest. Environmentalists are concerned that the Department of Health has now stopped showing cancer data for individual census tracts. In Albany County, the data shows cancer clusters around the Norlite hazardous waste incinerator, the old ANSWERS garbage incinerator, and the Ravena Cement Plant. Publisher Peter Mantius talks with Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine. waterfrontonline.blog/2023/07/03/environmental-advocates-decry-nys-health-departments-suppression-of-cancer-data-reported-by-census-tract/
