Dust be their destiny: Growing signs WTC residue caused nerve damage

In the Monday, January 25, 2016 edition of the Chief Leader, Sarah Dorsey interviews neurologists and sufferers from 9/11-related neuropathy, an incurable disease that worsens over time damaging nerves, causing simultaneous pain and numbness.

Neurologists at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola discovered that those people exposed to World Trade Center dust are 15 times more likely to have neuropathy than unexposed people, an astronomical rate.

Neuropathy is not covered by the Zadroga Act at this time, though it may be added.
