New lawsuits have been filed by attorney Jack Scarola, who says independent tests he ordered found radioactive material at almost all of the sites near a pediatric cancer cluster in the Acreage, WPTV TV/NewsChannel 5 reports. The Florida Department of Health conducted its own tests in 2010 and disputes the cancer cluster, but officials say they’re willing to take another look. The lawsuits blame a rock mining operation for the increase in childhood brain cancer cases from 2004 to 2008, according to CBS12
