Fort Chipewyan cancer study suggesting oilsands link to be released today

Early results from the Fort Chipewyan research found high levels of mercury and arsenic in wild food in the area.

 

The study suggests that high levels of cancer in Fort Chip are “significantly and positively associated” with employment in the oilsands and consumption of traditional foods, such as moose and fish, that are harvested in the area, according to a news release.
