The entire MV supersite area is full of TCE, benzene, toulene, formaldehyde ...
If you really believe, that the former pollutants are taking responsibility and are cleaning up swiftly, you're so mistaken. Some of the former pollutants haven't even claimed responsibility! They even don't care, they occasionally show up in public hearing, because they wouldn't look good otherwise so they come to the hearing meetings and do emailing.
EPA doesn't have the resources to clean up. It doesn't have even own measurement data! It completely relies on the former polluting companies to take proper measurement. the definition of proper is upto the individuels.
CDC measured 3 times more non hodgin lymphoma occurence in that area than normal distribution. However, it didn't consider, that people move, especially in Bay Area. So the real numbers don't probably lie by 35 occurence, it probably lies lies around 60, who knows?
What about people who work there? Kids, who go there to school?

What about the men? isn't it possible that some men are impacted by this? And their physical interaction with their girl friends/wives and they conceived and there is a possibility that those babies could be born with deformities? only time will tell.

I've been a resident at Central Park at Whisman Station (100 N Whisman Rd) for 8 years. Is this location also part of the area that has industrial pollution? What exactly is the MV supersite area? Where can I find more information on this subject? Pls advise.
