(RightWing.org) – A New Jersey high school is being tested for radiation after a scientist identified a cluster of more than 100 cancer cases. All the victims attended or worked at the school. Now locals are waiting for the test results.
In 1999, environmental scientist Al Lupiano was diagnosed with a very rare form of brain tumor. He survived — but when his wife and sister were diagnosed with similar tumors on the same day last August, alarm bells started ringing. Lupiano’s doctor told him the odds of them both having the same kind of tumor was like lightning striking a married couple. That was enough for Lupiano, who says he doesn’t believe in coincidences as a scientist, to start investigating. What he found was terrifying.

Lupiano identified 117 people with the same kind of primary brain tumor he had and 70 more with other forms of rare cancer — and the only thing they have in common is that they studied or worked at Colonia High School in Woodbridge, New Jersey. At first, he was frustrated by local authorities’ slow response, but on April 9, authorities set up radiation detectors around the school and placed air sampling containers inside. They’ll have results next month, and Lupiano will finally know if his lone investigation was on target.
