[...] 'The fact that we live so close to the oldest nuclear weapons waste in the world means that the health department should have been watching out for us,' said Dawn Chapman, whose son goes to Rose Acres. 'Something is causing these people over here to get sick.' [N.P.] A few years ago, several alumni from McCluer North High School in Florissant noticed a spike in rare cancers among classmates now in their 30s and 40s. They started their own nonscientific survey, which found more than one-third of 3,300 current and former residents of north St. Louis County have developed cancers. Their findings were one reason the St. Louis County health department hired three epidmiologists this year to study environmental risk factors in the area. [...] Cancer clusters are notoriously difficult for scientists to link to environmental hazards in part because the disease is so common. One in two men and one in three women will develop cancer at some point in their lives.
