Outrage one, breast cancer in women mostly working in the television and radio newsroom at ABC Queensland's headquarters in Toowong. Between 1994 and 2006 when the place was shut down, 16 women developed breast cancer and 12 more had non cancerous breast abnormalities. These were predominantly young and healthy women without any family history of breast cancer. An inquiry failed to find any scientific cause for the cluster. As soon as there seemed to more cases than a co-incidence, action should have been taken and women moved away from the site. As men can also develop breast cancer, I don't see why they should have stayed there either.
Outrage two, the Country Fire Authority Training College at Fiskville in Victoria. Another cancer cluster, men this time, in my opinion succumbing to the effects of all the chemicals that had been used over the years. The first government commissioned inquiry found that "...there's no good reason to conclude that they (I assume the chemicals) pose any significant risk to anyone on the site at present."
If there is any doubt when a cancer cluster appear, such locations should be shut down and then investigated. Inquiries that don't find a scientific reason doesn't mean that there isn't one. We may be smart creatures, but we don't know everything. In both cases in the early days, governments and their departments just denied in spite of the bleeding obvious.
