TOLEDO

Not much is known about a chemical compound that families believe is behind a cancer cluster in northern Ohio.

A federal civil lawsuit filed last week in Toledo points to a possible cause of the cancers that have sickened about 40 young people since the mid-1990s.

The families believe smokestacks from a Whirlpool Corp. plant in the Sandusky County city of Clyde sent the compound called benzaldehyde into the neighborhoods.
