Scientific reporting allows health care professionals to make earlier diagnoses of WTC conditions, which leads to more effective treatment. However, scientifically identifying the causes of health problems or conditions is typically very difficult. It is often not possible to determine the specific cause of an individual's illness or condition. However, it is critical to promote scientifically rigorous studies and reviews of potential health problems or risk factors among the affected population.

Below are links to lists of reports published about health effects in various WTC-exposed populations. Within each list are links to abstracts of the reports when available; however, viewing the full text of some reports may require a subscription to the publishing journal.
