The vog is causing breathing problems for my friends, family, & myself. I believe this is being underplayed.

Breathing sulfuric acid is not an "unknown"-- There are already plenty of studies done that show inhaling sulfuric acid creates cardiac inflammation (ie. heart attacks and strokes) as well as lung cancer and other respiratory problems. As usual the local politicians are thinking of the fiscal impact and not the health of their population. Very disappointing, but not terribly unexpected. Hopefully Big Island doctors will speak up about this as they are the ones who know the real truth, the increase in ER visits and rise in problems related to vog.

I was on Kauai from mid April to May over 100 miles from Kilauea. Vog burned eyes, throat, lungs, and irritated sinuses terribly. Same with my girlfriend.
