Fallout from 9/11 attacks on par with Fukushima and Chernobyl

At a recent conference at the New York Academy of Medicine, researchers shared more evidence of elevated rates of cancer, heart and respiratory disease and post-traumatic stress disorder among workers at the World Trade Center site that link to the chemicals at the site. One doctor avowed that the health consequences of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are equivalent to the fallout from the nuclear accidents at Chernobyl  in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011, reports Leah McGrath Goodman in Newsweek.
