Probe finds no evidence of higher cancer rates on Treasure Island
San Francisco Chronicle

An investigation by the California Cancer Prevention Institute has determined that there is no evidence of higher-than-expected cancer rates on Treasure Island, a former Navy base that is being readied for redevelopment and has been home to hundreds of San Francisco residents over the past 15 years while cleanup activities are under way.

But there appear to be some caveats to those findings, including the small size of the island’s population and a lack of information about how long people have lived there.
