By Meara Cummings Minnesota Daily February 03, 2014While a report showed cancer rates are normal in the Southeast Como neighborhood, residents are concerned about other health risks from the trichloroethylene, or TCE, soil vapors contaminating the area.

General Mills dumped TCE vapors on its former Hennepin Avenue property for 15 years in the mid-1900s as a byproduct of its chemical research.
