More than 100 people who graduated from the same New Jersey high school were diagnosed with rare forms of brain cancer and an investigation into this has been launched to establish if the cases are linked.
The investigation, which started last year, looked into the fact that 100 students who graduated from the same New Jersey high school got a rare form of brain cancer. T he investigation – however – found no correlation between the high school and the diagnosis.
Last month, Al Lupiano said that he was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 27. Later, his sister and his wife were also diagnosed with brain cancer. The three went to the same high school: The Colonia High School in Woodbridge, New Jersey.
NBC Today reports that more than 100 students who went to the same high school got the same diagnosis.
John McCormac, the Mayor of Woodbridge, said that the investigation has found no possible cause to justify brain cancer inside the school.
John McCormac said that the authorities even tested for radiation inside and outside the building of the school and the tests found no evidence to support and to merit additional investigations.
“It is good news for our current students and for their parents, who are worried about their safety, along with our faculty. It is a good news for former students who graduated and for the personnel who worked at the high school” the Mayor also said.
According to the mayor of Woodbridge, the company who conducted the test, specialized in environmental engineering, found no cause-effect relation between the disease and the building or the real estate that is owned by the high school.
