 Medical Data Suppressed in Bhopal Gas Leak

In some shocking news, the government appears to have ignored the long-term health effects posed to people after exposure to the Methyl Isocynate (MIC) gas in the Bhopal gas tragedy.

The government also cites the work of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in dismissing claims that exposure to MIC causes congenital deformities and cancer.

NR Bhandari, a principal investigator for the ICMR in five out of 20 projects told NDTV that the research data had not been published at all. "All the data was collected, we were analysing and preparing it. When we asked the ICMR for permission to publish the data from time to time, they said no, you need not publish. At no stage were we allowed to publish any data or give any lectures," Bhandari said.

The government is obviously in denial mode, but it is clear that thousands of people are still suffering from the effects of the gas leak 25 years after the incident occurred.
