Lots of Microwave Radiation and Sinkholes (Dissoved CaCO3) in Escambia County, FL (left) and Santa Rosa County(Right), FL And a Cancer Cluster

Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida

In February 2001, The Pensacola News Journal reported that rates for several kinds of cancer, rates for birth defects, and rates for low birth weight babies were all elevated in Escabmia and Santa Rosa counties as compared with national rates. The article reported that federal regulators suspect arsenic, dioxin, lead, mercury and other substances from contaminated Superfund sites and manufacturing plants, Escambia Treating and Agrico, are to blame. Without adequate tracking of these substances and human health, it is difficult to determine whether the environment is linked to these elevated cancer rates.
