Doctors on Long Island said Tuesday that they have linked yet another illness to World Trade Center dust.
As WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported, retired NYPD Detective Kenny Anderson first noticed tingling in his feet more than two years ago. Now, he has agonizing pain.
“There are times my kids want to come up and hug me,” Anderson said. “I got to stop and make sure they don’t crash into my feet, because it would be like getting hit with a hammer in the feet.”
Anderson has neuropathy. A new study at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola links the illness to World Trade Center dust.
