WTWSD- ATSDR Cancer Data Review Findings (AUG. 22)

The CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) released their findings for the cancer data review of Warminster, Horsham and Warrington Townships in Pennsylvania.

To address recent community concerns about cancer in the area, the Pennsylvania Department of Health and ATSDR reviewed information about cancer diagnoses for the communities living in zip codes surrounding the Former Naval Air Warfare Center in Warminster, Bucks County, PA and the Willow Grove Naval Air and Air Reserve Station, Horsham, Montgomery County, PA for the period 1985 to 2013.

At this time, the results do not show a cancer cluster in this area. Please review the report that has been published by the ATSDR at: Cancer Data Review (1985-2013).
