Report Finds Pediatric 'Cancer Cluster' in Southwest Florida

Dr. Lance Waller, faculty member in Population Biology, Ecology and Evolution, is mentioned in a news report about Southwest Florida having a “cancer cluster” - an area with a higher than expected number of children battling cancer.

“Maybe there's just something we don't understand - maybe there's something with individual risk behaviors, diet, exercise, or so on - maybe there's something related to the environment," said Waller. He warned not to leap to large-scale causes until they really look into data and figure out what they have in those cases.
