When space coast had an ocean red tide bloom I returned amazed to hear of 30 - 50 year olds hospitalized with collapsed lungs. Collapsed lungs are for football and car accidents. A number of folks passed away from respiratory cardio problems. I wondered about the frail elderly when the young and healthy were being so negatively affected.
A state so worried about smoking in bars needs to take a look at the larger health issues of pollution and coastal sewage dumping.
