Commissioner Jean Monestime’s Statement on Florida Department of Health Report on Possible Cancer Cluster
The Florida Department of Health has released its report detailing the findings of its investigation into whether a cancer cluster exists in the Broadmoor community in unincorporated Miami-Dade County. This investigation was prompted by Resolution R-722-12 which I co-sponsored. I thank the Florida Department of Health for promptly looking into this important health issue and for their professionalism during the course of this investigation. The investigation found that there were 634 patients diagnosed with 693 cancers from 2000 through 2010 in the Broadmoor community. While the state's report found that the number of cancer cases in this community has not increased in recent years, and that the number of cases in the area tracked cancer rates for Floridians in general, the rate of stomach cancer in the area is higher than that of the state of Florida. This information is troubling and bears further investigation. Since the original resolution was adopted, many more residents in the Broadmoor community have complained about asthma, trouble breathing and other respiratory ailments. In the coming weeks, I will ask the Florida Department of Health to look into these concerns. The health and safety of the residents in my district is my top priority.
