9/11 Responders Dying Of Neglect


(RIVERHEAD, NY)—The U.S. government’s continued refusal is causing a whole new class of victims to acknowledge illnesses caused by the toxic dusts and wastes at the Ground Zero site—according to a new book.

Steven Centore was one of the many who volunteered or were ordered to assist in the immediate aftermath of the attack on 9/11 and then during the eighteen-month long recovery efforts at Ground Zero.

Since that time, the dangerously toxic and debilitating conditions that these “first responders” toiled under has come to light. As these people become gravely ill and in some cases die their names may be added to the official list of victims of the 9-11 attack.

Mr. Centore has appeared at congressional hearings to fight for the rights of these thousands of first responders. In his new book, One of Them: A First Responder’s Story, he details his own personal account.

“This has become a political football in the coming election that the administration has fumbled,” said Mr. Centore, a life long Republican who has had a distinguished career in the U.S. Military and clandestine services.

“I’ve been a life-long republican, and for the first time in my history I’ll probably be voting democratic.”

Mr. Centore has been appalled at the callous indifference, lack of support, and the meager financial resources provided by the U.S. government.

“The attack didn’t end on 9-11,” said Mr. Centore. “The attack continues to this day as first responders suffer from the aftereffects. It’s almost like radiation poisoning after a nuclear attack: first there are the initial victims and then there are those that are poisoned by the clouds of lethal dust.”

“I wanted to tell my story of how I became ill, what the government did and did not do for me, and what happened to me as a result,” says Mr. Centore. “I’d like to shed some light on the cover-ups that the government has been perpetrating in the news.”

Steven talks with conviction of:
 The growing number of people treated for illnesses due to toxic dust at Ground Zero
 How the government helped municipal first responders following 9-11, but are in complete denial of anyone else
 The deception, lies and cover-ups by the state, federal, and municipal governments.

“Up to 70 percent of first responders are ill as a result of 9/11 contamination,” says Steven. “If a similar rate of illness is true for those who lived and worked near the WTC, the number of seriously ill New Yorkers could climb to 300,000 in the near future.”

This book illustrates how ruthless the government can be when it wants the outcome of certain unfavorable situations to appear favorable.
