Description

There is a street in Kirby, Texas, on one side of which residents die of various forms of cancer, while their neighbors across the street remain healthy. KENS-TV investigates the mystery and reveals that most of the affected residents believe their illnesses were cause by power lines above their house. Doctors, however, say there is not enough research to conclude power lines cause cancer. The also say the Kirby street phenomenon can not be considered a cancer cluster because people are affected by many varieties of cancer, KENS reports.
