Overview of the Evidence


Overwhelming nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, engineering, seismological and geological evidence shows that tactical nukes were used to demolish the towers. In addition, there is unassailable medical and epidemiological evidence that a catastrophic event releasing radionuclides occurred at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001.

Summary of cancers in enrollees WTC Health Program (December, 2016)

– 5,105 workers out of 65,211 workers in program have cancer* (8% or 1 in 12 workers have cancer)
– 867 survivors with cancer out of 10,121 survivors in program have cancer (8.5%)
– 5,972 enrollees out of 75,732 total enrollees have cancer (8%)  CDC Dec 2016

The rate of increase in cancers in workers also supports that a nuclear event took place at the World Trade Center in the September 11 attacks:

Total cancer certificates (responders and bystanders)

  • In 2013: 1,100 (CNN)
  • In 2014: 2,500 (link)
  • In 2015 (February): 3,204  (CDC)
  • In 2016 (December): 5,105 (CDC)
  • In 2017 (June): 6,893 (CDC)

It is hard to believe that the demolitions of six buildings in a complex would produce such an explosion of cancers: about 5,000 workers and 900 survivors, almost 6,000 people altogether, in the WTC health program have cancer. This number is higher than the number of people killed in the WTC attacks on September 11 (3,000). It is believed that many of the 6,188 cancers in 5,972 members with cancer are linked to the WTC site and Fresh Kills landfill site (“Cancer Alley”) where the WTC debris and dust was moved to. Staten Island shows an 11% increase in cancers over the rest of the state. Staten Island residents have the shortest life expectancy out of the five boroughs of NYC. Staten Island is a breast and lung cancer hot spot.

The statistics from the WTC Health Program do not include the number of people who have already died of cancers linked to the WTC. It is estimated by this site that the number who have already died of a cancer related to the WTC September 11 attacks is over 1,000.

Cancer is a disease of the elderly. Such high rates of cancer prevalence seen in the health program are unusual in this mostly non-elderly population of people who worked at the WTC. Workers were exposed to the dust and debris at the WTC and Fresh Kills landfill in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Now, in 2017, 16 years later, the workers are in their 40s, 50s and 60s, and many of them have developed cancer.

There is evidence that fallout from the nuclear explosion is also affecting residents in eastern New Jersey. The research in this site does not examine the effects of (radioactive) fallout drifting over adjacent regions, causing cancer in these populations. If these people are included, the final cancer toll from the September 11 attacks could be much higher. Some cancers have long latency periods, and these cancers are expected to present in the future, which will increase the overall cancer toll.

The other characteristics of the people with cancer related to September 11 are the variety of cancers presenting and the unusual nature of some of the cancers that are showing up, including high frequencies of rare cancers, and the appearance of cancers in younger age groups that are usually only seen in the elderly (e.g. multiple myeloma). Some of the cancers that are showing up are behaving uncharacteristically. Mesothelioma, which usually takes at least 25 years after asbestos exposure to appear, has been seen in WTC workers as early as 3 years and 5 years after exposure. Radiation can cause mesotheliomas in less than 4 years after exposure, reported one study.

Childhood cancers have been added to the WTC cancer registry. People who were children at the time of the September 11 attacks and lived near the WTC and landfill site on Staten Island are being diagnosed with cancers many years later.

Demolitions of office towers are a normal event in cities of any industrial society. They are not known to cause spikes in cancer among demolition workers or people living or working near demolition sites. And what about the Fresh Kills landfill workers who were not exposed to the dust cloud that descended on lower Manhattan on September 11? These workers too are showing a troubling incidence of cancers.

Only a highly carcinogenic agent can produce such large increases in cancers and a similar profile of cancers. Cancers in 55 different regions of the body have been found in the exposed population. Cancers are occurring in almost every organ and system of the body, including rare cancers and cancers unusual for a certain demographic.

Radiation is one of the strongest carcinogens known to man. It can cause cancer in every part of the human body. It is well known that radioactive fallout is produced in a nuclear explosion and causes cancer spikes in exposed populations – see Hiroshima and Pacific atolls. Many different types of cancer have appeared in these groups. The cancer rate of the exposed population depends on the dose of radiation. A cumulative dose of 1,000 milliSieverts will produce excess cancers in 5 out of 100 people.

Other carcinogenic agents, such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHC), asbestos and silicates, do not produce such a wide spectrum of cancers; nor do they cause such a pronounced increase in cancers. The cancer profile of the exposed population does not match the cancer profile of these toxic agents. This is one reason why health authorities have not linked the cancers to the September 11 attacks. The inhalation of particulate toxins can be significantly reduced by wearing a face mask.

Radiation as a causative factor in the cancers has received only scant examination by health authorities on the basis that there is “no evidence” that radionuclides or radioactivity was present at the affected sites. However, as shown by the studies done on the dust and debris at the WTC by US government scientists, there is plenty of evidence that radionuclides, including those found in the decay chain of uranium, the primary element used in the manufacture of the explosive core of nuclear weapons, were present at the WTC site.

US health authorities have still not provided an adequate explanation for this spike in cancers in the exposed population. A cause of the cancer spike must exist. A proper forensic examination of all the evidence, including chemical, medical and physical evidence, shows clearly that radiation was present at the WTC site, as this website will demonstrate.

Many of the workers who died early of cancer were rescue personnel – “first responders”. These people went into the heart of where a nuclear explosion had just taken place, and they would have received the dose of radiation that was present at the hypocenter of a nuclear explosion at that time, which would have been extremely high, and before decontamination procedures could be started. These workers entered the site with no protection against radiation whatsoever. Only simple face masks were worn: these would have been adequate against most inhaled toxins but not against radiation. This is the equivalent of sending workers to clean up a nuclear reactor site that has just undergone a meltdown, without giving the workers any protection against the radiation.

The finding of radioactive elements, including uranium, tritium, strontium, barium, beryllium, cesium, niobium, thorium, cobalt, yttrium, and molybdenum, in significant amounts in the dust and coatings of WTC beams, confirms that radiation is the cause of this cancer spike. Radionuclides are a signature of nuclear explosions.

Other evidence is presented to show that nuclear explosions took place at the WTC on September 11, 2001.

Factors that support radiation as a cause of the cancer spike

– The prevalence rate of cancer is higher than normal
– The type of cancers that are appearing is atypical
– The rate in increase in the number of cancer cases is abnormally high
– Cancers that are rare are appearing in relatively high numbers
– Cancers that appear most commonly in certain age groups are occurring in much younger age groups
– The cancers are behaving unusually (e.g. mesothelioma usually appears 25 years or more after exposure to asbestos but is appearing much earlier in WTC workers)
– The cancers are aggressive in nature
– A wide spectrum of cancers is appearing — in every part of the body

Vaporization of humans: 2 out of 5 people who died at the WTC vanished 

1,116 out of 2,750 people (40%) killed at the WTC have simply vanished. No body parts can be found.

The fact that the body parts of 1,116 people who died at the WTC can not be found as of 2013 indicates complete obliteration of the remains of many of these people. As of 2013, only 1,634 people out of 2,750 people (60%) who died at the World Trade Center in the September 11 terrorist attacks have been identified (Dailymail). One rescuer said he could not find anything bigger than a telephone dial pad among the rubble.

The phenomenon of vaporized humans was also seen in the Hiroshima nuclear event. Buttons, a pipe–these kinds of objects were the only evidence left behind of human beings, in some cases after the Hiroshima atomic bombing (link).

Fires were small – only two floors on fire

The fires in the buildings were small shortly before they fell. Fires were only seen on 2-3 floors in the three towers (WTC 1, 2 and 7) a few minutes before their collapses. This picture shows the state of the South Tower shortly before it fell. Unlike Windsor Tower on the right, only small fires are burning. You can see a small fire near the plane strike in the picture above. At the most, fires affected 4 floors of the South Tower. The smoke is black indicating the fire is being starved of oxygen. Firefighters were heard saying they could put out the fires on their floors with “two lines” (hoses) right before it fell.


The state of the South Tower shortly before it fell. 

This graphic reproduced from NIST shows the extent of the fires (in red) in the North Tower at the time of the tower’s fall, 10:28am. Fires were only present on the 92nd and 98th floors.


Graphic from NIST on the left: WTC 1

The extent and size of the fire at the time of the collapse does not match the level of destruction seen after the collapse.


Both the diagram and photograph are from National Institute of Science and Technology. 

Windsor Tower burned for 20 hours before the fire went out. It was still standing at the end. In contrast,  fire is seen only on two floors of the North Tower shortly before it starts to disintegrate. The government claims fires were the cause of the collapses of the three towers.

Torched cars

Cars were set alight a hundred meters away from the towers. Thermal energy of a nuclear explosion can scorch cars far from the hypocenter and set them alight.


On the left is an atomic bomb test. On the right are cars damaged by fire from the heat ray that came from the towers

The cars that are damaged by fire and are covered in dust in the picture on the left were in a car park that is 100 meters from the closest Twin Tower. The abundance of dust that blankets the parking lot and the cars is evidence that the cars were torched in situ.


The cars that are damaged by fire and are covered in dust

A blanket of dust sits over over the cars in the parking lot circled in red. Cars in the parking lot caught fire when the towers collapsed. The towers are on the left, about 100 meters away.  

Evidence of a fire ball – intense heat and vaporization

A fireball is produced during a nuclear explosion. It radiates thermal energy of high temperatures.


The temperature at the center of the fireball generated by an atomic bomb at the moment of detonation is more than 1 million degrees Celsius.

Flash from the nuclear fire ball


Wait 3 seconds in to see the nuclear glow. The screen floods with bright light. This is from the fireball. 

In a nuclear explosion, the fire ball produces energy in the form of light. The flash from a nuclear fire ball has been described as being “brighter than a thousand suns”. In the GIF above, made from a CNN News clip of the North Tower, the screen suddenly brightens a few seconds in. This is due to the intense light energy emitted by the fire ball that forms in a nuclear explosion.

Enough energy was generated to produce micron-sized particles

The energy produced by the fires and gravitational energy from the buildings’ fall does not match the energy required to produce 0.3 micron sized particles that were found after the attack. The total energy released from the collapse must match the peak energy produced, as measured by the sizes of the particles formed.

Radionuclides were found in WTC and Fresh Kills landfill 

Nuclear fission products involved in the radioactive decay chain of uranium were found at elevated levels in the dust and debris at Ground Zero and radiation was detected over Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island and radon was discovered at this site. Radionuclides are a signature of nuclear explosions.

High levels of tritium found

Tritium, a radionuclide, a component of “heavy water”, which is used to make thermonuclear weapons, was found at above normal levels at the World Trade Center despite massive decontamination procedures, including pouring 20 million liters of water into the “Bath tub”, that seemed designed to remove evidence of the detonation of a nuclear device.

Cancers first appeared 5 years after September 11 – latency period fits the timeline

Leukemia was one of the first cancers to appear after September 11 in WTC workers. A leukemia spike started to appear in 2006, five years after September 11. This period matches the latency period of leukemia. Since then 55+ different cancers have been found in responders and survivors, including rare cancers and cancers that are unusual in the age group concerned. Many cancer types usually only seen in the elderly are appearing in much younger people. Mesothelioma, which usually has a minimum latency period of 25 years  when it is caused by asbestos, appeared in two individuals after only several years. Two workers died of mesothelioma: one in 2004 and the other in 2006. WTC workers who have received a cancer diagnosis are increasing at the rate of 1200 per year (since 2013).

5400 cancers september 11

A CNN news report in 2016 found that 5,400 WTC workers with cancer had enrolled in a federal health program for WTC workers. This figure does not include those who have already died of cancer or those with cancer who did not enrol.  

Cancer spike: 1 in 12 WTC workers have cancer as of 2016 (5,100+ responders and 1,000 bystanders have cancer) 

More than 5,000 workers have cancer (CDC). 55 different cancers, some rare and unusual in a certain age groups, have been found in WTC workers. 1000 enrollees in the health program have already died. 1,200 new cancer patients join the WTC program every year. Radiation is one of the strongest carcinogens known to man and can cause cancer in every organ of the body. Such a high prevalence of cancers in the workers is consistent with radiation exposure. Radioactive elements were found in the WTC dust and leachates of coatings of WTC girders. Radionuclides are a signature of a nuclear explosion. Eighty radiation hot spots were found in Staten Island and lower Manhattan in 2006. Locals call the locale of Fresh Kills “Cancer Alley”. The profile of cancers mimics Hiroshima. This cancer data is consistent with workers going to the heart of Ground Zero and breathing in radioactive dust and being bombarded with radioactive particles and rays.

Ordinary demolitions do not cause cancer elevations in demolition workers or to the people living and working in the surrounding areas. A face mask is sufficient to reduce the entry of most inhalational toxins in the atmosphere, so asbestos, PAHCs and other toxins can be ruled out as the cause of the cancer spike. Besides, these toxins do not cause such a wide range of different cancers to develop that are being diagnosed in this group.

Cancer categories

These cancers were seen in WTC workers in 2006, 5 years after the September 11 attacks, when the cancers first started to appear. Cancers of longer latency periods appeared after 2006. Such a broad spectrum of cancers seen in the WTC workers would only be expected to be found in a radiological event, such as a nuclear bomb detonation. The ionizing radiation from radioactive isotopes that are found in the fallout of a nuclear explosion, that releases fission products, damages a wide range of cells in the human body.  As of December 2016, there are 55 categories of cancers, covering every part of the human body, that have been added to the cancer register for WTC workers who are eligible to receive benefits for their cancer.

Demolitions and cancer

Demolitions of office towers or large structures like the arena below are common in cities of industrialized countries. However, none of them are associated with cancer spikes that involve thousands of demolition workers or people living or working nearby acquiring cancer. This GIF shows the demolition of New Haven Coliseum. Like the WTC one, this demolition released a large quantity of dust clouds, smoke and toxins into the air. The WTC event is linked to 6,000 cancers and the deaths of an unknown number of people who have already died from a cancer linked to the WTC.


New Haven Coliseum

Decontamination began early

Decontamination procedures were started early and seemed to be designed to contain radiation. In addition, steel from the WTC was tracked electronically as it was taken out of New York City and loaded onto ships headed for China where it was to be recycled.

Radiation hot spots in Manhattan and Staten Island

80 radiation hot spots were discovered over Manhattan and Staten Island in 2006. The exact locations of all of the hot spots have not been identified by the GAO. Some people say the Staten Island location is Great Kills–an old piece of radiological equipment emitting radiation was found there according to the NYPD–however this has not been confirmed by the GAO. The number of hot spots found in Staten Island has not been stated.

Graphic from the GAO report on radiation hot spots found by helicopter survey. Note the unknown radiation source.

Lack of objects found – “biggest piece of debris was a telephone dial pad”

There was a lack of sizable objects found; for example, only one filing cabinet was recovered. This indicates the “atomization” of matter.

Fires of tremendous intensity raged for weeks

Fires of tremendous temperatures were still present weeks after 9/11: boots melted.

Flash burns of cars

Some cars were only burned on one side. In nuclear explosions, there is a flash burn effect–only the side that faces the thermal ray is affected.

Flash burns are an effect seen in Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic explosions and atomic tests. The fabric print has been tattooed onto the skin and undergarment due to the flash burn effect. The shadow of a person is burned into the steps of a building in Hiroshima. 

Lava-like rivulets – intense heat for months

Hot lava-like rivulets were reported by clean-up and recovery workers: “like a foundry”.


Even two months later, molten steel was found.

Bomb crater-like hole

Wide area of blast damage – pattern of overpressures match a nuclear explosion

The blast radius of damage was large, and many surrounding buildings were affected, even some that were not in the WTC complex.

Steel beam “flew” 150 meters and speared the World Financial Center 3 building – impossible in a gravity drop

streetmap_wfc_mdf-steel beam flew horizontally 150m wfc3.jpg

The steel beam from the WTC 1 flew across the street for a horizontal distance of 150 meters and ended up in the WFC 3 (World Financial Center 3) with enough force to impale it. This does not happen in a gravity drop. 

3942sml-1sml  impaled_three_world_financialclose-sml2

I-beams were flung across the street and were impaled into the WFC 3 tower. A horizontal force, not a gravitational one, threw these I-beams into the buildings that were 50-100 meters from the towers. 

Windows were shattered 150 meters away 

Glass in World Financial Center buildings was shattered by blast forces. 



“Great wind”

Many people described a great wind at the time of the collapses of the North and South Towers. This is due to the blast force of a nuclear explosion and the negative pressure created afterwards.


Metal debris

Metal debris show signs of intense heat. Such a high degree of thermal energy is only found in nuclear explosions.


Surge clouds at the base

Surge clouds at the base of the explosion are a feature of underground nuclear explosions.

The volume of dust generated by the event

A thick layer of dust covered lower Manhattan.

WTC 7 – the tower that was not hit by a plane

Even though WTC 7 was not hit by a plane and only had small fires on a couple of floors, the tower collapsed approx. 4 hours after catching fire.


wtc7-fires-sml  wtc7_rubble3

The fire in the WTC7 building was only present on two floors, as can be seen in this picture on the left. No plane hit WTC7. How did the WTC7 tower fall? 

Lack of human remains: mainly bone fragments found

“In September 2005 human remains were found on the roof.[4] In March 2006, construction workers who were removing toxic waste from the building before dismantling found more bone fragments and remains…Between April 7 and April 14, 2006, more than 700 human bone fragments were discovered in the ballast gravel on the roof.” (Wikipedia: Banker’s Trust Building)

Banker’s Trust Building

This part  above, mentioning human remains in the dust found at Ground Zero, was removed later from a government report on the dust. The uncensored report is here.


Some human remains likely turned into dust. Other sizable objects were also lacking in the debris. Steel spire atop the transmission tower vaporizes into dust in this GIF. 

Radiation-related illnesses

There was a high rate of illnesses among workers post-September 11, whose clinical features resemble radiation injury. 



The thermite theory – disproved

6 pounds of thermite could not smash a single brick in this video; however, some say thermite was used to destroy more than 500,000 metric tons of concrete per tower. If 6 pounds of thermite is inadequate to destroy one single brick, how much thermite would be needed to destroy it? How much thermite would be needed to destroy 500,000 metric tons of concrete? Thermite simply lacks explosive power. That is why it is not used extensively in the building demolitions industry. Thermite may have been used as an adjunctive explosive but was not the main device used on that day. Neither were beam weapons employed. Beam weapons do not cause a high rate of cancers and beam weapons were experimental in 2001.
