(SUGAR CREEK) -- Federal officials want to know if there's a link between
the environment in a Kansas City suburb and the high incidence of multiple
sclerosis in the surrounding area. A federal agency reports there are ten
cases of M-S in the town of Sugar Creek. That would be one of every 400
residents. The national average is one out of every four-thousand. And
the agency says it's checking out more reports of the disease. The town
is the site of a former Amoco refinery. There have been whispers of health
dangers in the area for years.
