The Mystery of 9/11 and Dementia (Washington Post Magazine)

The Washington Post quoted Caleb Finch in a story on how tens of thousands of police, firefighters, construction workers, and others who worked amid the ruins of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan following 9/11 are experiencing cognitive decline. “There’s a large amount of uncertainty, and the data is just in the beginning of being collected,” he says. “But everyone there I talked with said this is something we ought to look at very seriously. It’s clear that this is a lingering brain insult, 20 years later.”
