9/11 survivors face higher risk of heart and lung problems

(Reuters Health) - Survivors of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001 - and first-responders who were on the scene that day - may have an increased risk for heart and lung diseases, a new study suggests.

The World Trade Center attack exposed thousands of people to intense concentrations of hazardous materials that have resulted in reports of increased levels of asthma, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic physical and psychological disorders, researchers note in the journal Injury Epidemiology.

For the current study, researchers examined data on 8,701 people who were at the World Trade Center site on the day of the attacks and didn’t have asthma, diabetes or heart and lung diseases.

After up to 11 years of follow-up, people injured that day were at least twice as likely to develop heart disease as people who didn’t sustain injuries, the study found. Dust and debris exposure was associated with 30 percent higher odds of developing asthma and lung diseases, the study also found.
