ANSA reported that Italian Health Minister Giulia Grillo told that leukemia admissions for children aged zero to 19 in the area of the former ILVA steel plant in Taranto showed an increasing trend in 2014-2017

Cancer rates have been above the national average for years around the formerly high-polluting ILVA plant, which is now run by ArcelorMittal.

The Italo-Indian consortium is conducting an environmental clean up and industrial revamp to clean the local air while preserving jobs at the plant, the biggest steel factory in Europe.
