State health officials say no higher incidences of certain types of cancer were found in an upstate NY village whose water supplies were contaminated by chemicals linked to the disease.
Hutton says the study doesn't find an increased cancer rate but doesn't look at other potential health risks of PFOA exposure.
"No statistically significant elevations of cancer were found for any of the cancer types associated with PFOA exposure", the agency said.
The study's findings, first reported by the Times Union of Albany, have been mailed to residents in the Rensselaer County village, located near the Vermont border, 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Albany. Residents who came to the state Capitol in May to seek a new water supply for the community said they remain wary of the filtrated water and consider it a temporary fix. State health officials have scheduled a series of public sessions in the village to discuss the results.

It's part of Apple's effort to entice professionals with tablets that can handle many tasks previously reserved for laptops. It has been around two years since Apple first launched " Apple Music ", its own streaming service set to take on Spotify.
Hutton said the study also doesn't address other health problems linked by some studies to PFOA exposure, such as developmental problems in infants, liver damage, thyroid effects, immune problems and cholesterol changes.
Some environmental groups are skeptical of a state Health Department report finding no elevated rate of cancers linked to the toxic chemical PFOA in an upstate NY village whose water supplies were contaminated by the chemical. The contamination is believed to have started decades earlier. The state has installed more than 800 filtration treatment systems in houses since it acknowledged the high levels of PFOA in local water supplies. "It illustrates the need for long term health monitoring", she said.
"Over a 20-year period, I would bet at least 40 percent of the older citizens moved at least over the village lines, if not to Florida", Hassel said.
Liz Moran of Environmental Advocates of NY faults the study for going back only to 1995.
