A new federal study shows people living near the Sterigenics International plant at 7775 S. Quincy St. in Willowbrook face some of the country’s highest cancer risks from toxic air pollution. The Chicago Tribune reports that federal officials began investigating the company last year after surrounding communities (including Indian Head Park) were identified on a national map of health hazards from breathing toxic chemicals. With the rising concerns, and risks that have come to light, Mayor Tom Hinshaw has taken a stand. Mayor hinshaw wrote a letter to the Vice President of Sterigenics, as well as letter to Mayor Trillia, of the Village of Willowbrook. Please keep checking back as more information becomes available.
