Australian breast cancer cluster

The breast cancer cluster at the Australian Broadcasting Commission’s Queensland studio continues to grow.

In February another worker, was reported as having the cancer, bringing the tally of breast cancer victims to 18. Amarita Kinnoo had worked in the newsroom for approximately seven years.

In 2006 the Toowong studio was closed after the breast cancer cluster was reported, though no cause has ever been officially recorded.
