Dr. David Samadi discusses limitations of new research regarding the potential link between 9/11 rescue workers and cancer. One study suggests no link between Ground Zero toxins and cancer while another, by the FDNY, suggests a 19% increase in cancer diagnosis.
The study denying any link consisted of 42,000 9/11 rescue workers, though Dr. Samadi cautions that with such a large sample size and a lack of clarification about their proximity to Ground Zero, the results could be diluted. The FDNY study included 928 9/11 rescue workers.
Dr. Samadi cautions that there will be limitations with any current studies of the potential links between Ground Zero toxins and cancer. "Today we cannot make any conclusions from these studies," says Samadi. Cancer takes time to develop and "5-10 years is not long enough to be able to get all of our answers."
Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

De operatie zelf is kennelijk geheel volgens plan verlopen en de uitkomst is...

The Da Vinci Robotic procedure has become the new “ceiling” of what medical engineering in the year 2016 can accomplish.  It has become the standard or the foundation from which greater accomplishments can be made.
