An organization investigating a possible cancer cluster near Frederick County’s Ft. Detrick says it has found a link to Agent Orange which was tested at the military base during the Cold War.  Randy White, with the Kristen Renee Foundation, held a news conference yesterday, announcing that he hired scientists to conduct blood tests on an undisclosed number of people and the results show exposure to Agent Orange.

He also claims his organization has discovered more than one-thousand people living within a six-mile radius of the base that have or have recovered from cancer.  Meanwhile, the Army has released a new report which states that a total of 17 pounds of Agent Orange and similar defoliants were tested at Ft. Detrick between 1944 and 1951.  The military has spent some 46-million dollars since the 1990’s to clean up the toxic waste.
