Oil ‘Spill’ Commission member says public health concerns are “clearly a dominant issue” in Gulf


Oil spill's health effects raise concern, but are unproven, commissioner says, The Times-Picayune, January 12, 2011:

Coastal residents finally found a receptive audience to their complaints about health problems they allegedly suffered from exposure to dispersants and toxins while helping clean up oil from the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico. ...

[Commission member Frances] Beinecke said health concerns are "clearly a dominant issue down here," and she promised to share the "really, really powerful" stories of despair with Obama and his Cabinet. ...

"Whether allegations that the spill created health problems for responders and Gulf Coast residents are warranted does not change the perception among some that government has not been responsive to health concerns," the report says.
