Hanna Proposes Firefighter Cancer Registry

By Jason Weinstein.
Saying firefighters are exposed to a range of toxins, Congressman Richard Hanna has introduced a bill that would create a national cancer registry for firefighters diagnosed with cancer.

According to Hanna research has indicated a strong connection between firefighting and an increased risk for several major cancers such as testicular, stomach, multiple myeloma and brain cancers. Hanna says the registry could eventually lead to advanced safety protocols and safeguards.
