In a previous comprehensive study, sponsored by the EPA and the AMA (American Medical Association), studies were done on all U.S. counties. The studies were conducted by using multiple regression analysis as a method of statistical analysis to assess the association of mortality with copper mining activities. The results of these studies indicates an excessive mortality rate from non-malignant respiratory diseases in mining counties. Greenlee County and Pima county in Arizona were found to be number one and two on the list of counties where the most people suffered fatal respiratory diseases associated with mining activities. Grant County, New Mexico is running a strong third on the list. The most shocking revelation of this study is that the studies suggest that people who live within 50 miles of working mines, were found to be 74% more likely to develop respiratory diseases than people who live 50 miles or further from mining sites. Do you think it is a coincidence that these counties are primarily staffed with doctors who are indirectly paid by Freeport McMoran Copper and Gold? It is a fact that the dust created by mining activities, is very harmful to your health. Some say this dust is more harmful than the smoke created by smoking tobacco products.
