HP Biomonitoring Radiogenic Cancer Cluster Update: 05/10/22

The system of federal Superfund sites created by the historically documented radioactive and chemical contamination of the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, Parcel E-2 Industrial Landfill, southern shoreline and South Basin drains into the 2016 EPA designated Superfund site at Yosemite Slough.
A system of federal and state Superfund sites abuts the shoreline of south central Bayview Hunters Point where an estimated 35,000 people “live…work…play…and pray” within a one mile buffer zone.
“Like a string of red pearls” — breast cancer indicator pins outline the perimeter of the federal Superfund system at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and Yosemite Slough. Note the tight cluster of three cases centered around the 3rd & Palou historic entry to the radiation laboratory and industrial landfill on the shipyards southern shoreline. A woman residing at 3rd and Quesada was 27 years old when diagnosed with breast cancer. The Atomic Bomb Survivors registry classifies breast cancer in women as young as 20 as radiogenic breast cancer.

State of California employees and a densely population community of an estimated 35,000 people are within feet of a radiation contaminated shoreline and industrial landfill - separately designated a federal Superfund site.

Note the string of red indicator pins outlining the western perimeter of the system of federal Superfund sites. The radiation contaminated industrial landfill on the southern shoreline was created by the US Navy in 1955. Historical records show the Navy dumped thousands of radium dials, barrels of irradiated animal carcasses and radioactive sandblast into the 50 acre landfill while residents were living within 50 feet from the unguarded western fence line.
Spatial and space-time clusters of brain and CNS tumors in the US are confirmed by Amin and Guttman in a 2000–2014 scientific review. Circular shaped cancer clusters -similar to the HP Biomonitoring “breast cancer necklace-” are documented in Boston and Philadelphia. At the epicenter of the cancer clusters in all three cities sits a landfill or toxic dump!

HP Biomonitoring conducted urinary screening on woman living 50 feet from western fence line panhandle region who captured the photo of backhoe excavations at the landfill on August 11. 2021
Deep soil excavations at the northwestern boundary of the Parcel E-2 industrial landfill documented by a resident who lives 50 feet from this unreinforced fence line. A four year old boy born on Navy Road in housing sited north of these environmental violations died in April of 2022 of a brain tumor linked to carcinogenic heavy metal exposure.

The UCSF Facility located in former NRDL animal kennel Building 830 at 75 Crisp Road is within 250 feet of the Parcel E-2 landfill. North of Building 830 on the Hunters Point hilltop a four year old boy died of a brain cancer in April. Less than a mile west of the complex a 10 year old boy died of a similar type of brainstem cancer in September of 2021. Southeast of the facility the San Francisco Police Department documents two cases of brain cancer.
A UCSF internal investigation concluded in 2021 confirms the detection of cesium, radium, thorium and daughters of uranium in dust employees complained enveloped their cars, cafeteria, worksites and kennels documented in a 2018 internal report:
Photo taken by Hunters Point Hilltop resident in June 2020 submitted to BAAQMD with video documentation of Proposition 65 violations. A deep soil backhoe excavator is operating at an unprotected fence line within feet of homes, schools, playgrounds, a daycare center and the Hunters Point Boys & Girls Club on Kiska Road. The four year old boy who died of brain cancer in April of this year was born on Navy Road — one block south of Kiska Road where this photo documenting Proposition 65 violation was submitted to regulatory agencies and triggered a Proposition 65 legal injunction filed on June 18, 2021 by attorneys representing the 9,000 plaintiff Hunters Point Community Lawsuit. Excavations of Parcel A-2 commenced by order of Mayor London Breed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the community with the second highest case rate and highest concentration of the Omicron variant during the peak of the California wildfire season in 2020.
EPA EJScreen Environmental Mapping Tool Air Toxics Cancer Risk ranks in the 95th to 100th percentile in the region of the Palou Avenue to Crisp Road historic main entry to the Hunters Point Shipyard southern shoreline and western fence line where a cluster of cancers proven to be induced by ionizing radiation and cancer causing heavy metals that have been mapped and detected on urinary toxic exposure screens by the Hunters Point Biomonitoring Program since 2019.
