Man blames Parsippany-area cancer cluster on local company

(11/23/04) PARSIPPANY A former employee of a company in Parsippany says his long-time employers are responsible for a widespread cancer cluster in New Jersey.

John Wnorowski, who suffers from spinal lymphoma, claims the chemical company Adrons use of carcinogenic materials is causing residents to fall ill with cancer. Wnorowski says throughout his 33 years with the Adron, formerly Norda, Inc., hes seen many fellow workers fall ill with the deadly disease.

Adron has tangled in the past with the environmental branch of the New Jersey government. In August, the State Department of Environmental Protection accused the company of illegal dumping at Lake Intervale. However, residents near the lake say the water quality has always been good.

Wnorowskis attorney says more than 45 employees and several nearby residents have been diagnosed with cancer because of the companys practices.
