Widow claims 9/11 toxins gave her teacher husband cancer

The widow of Robert Rodney, a former chemistry teacher at Stuyvesant High School in Lower Manhattan, says Rodney died from exposure to the site of the former World Trade Center, writes Carl Campanile in the New York Post. 

Mr. Rodney died in 2006 of a rare cancer of the brain’s lining at the age of 58.

At least twelve other students and teachers from the area’s schools have site-related cancers and other serious illnesses from their exposure to the toxins from the buildings’ collapse. A number of deaths among faculty of Lower Manhattan schools have also occurred and may be attributable to the site as well.
