Unusually high cancer rates found in military pilots and ground crews

Quick Summary

The Pentagon acknowledged that the study had gaps that likely led to an undercount of cancer cases.

Even with the wider approach, the Pentagon cautioned that the actual number of cancer cases was likely to be even higher because of gaps in the data, which it said it would work to remedy.

The data had long been sought by retired military aviators who have raised alarms for years about the number of air and ground crew members they knew who had cancer.
