duh! You have specialize companies that remove asbestos. The EPA told rescue workers to wear respirators. They didn't have the power to command them to . The local govt did .<quoted text>
Up to 70 percent of first responders are ill as a result of 9/11 contamination.
I don't care what you say the rescue workers as well as the citizens who lived close to the area were assured the air was safe to breathe and they were lied to.
Not all of the people who are ill were rescue workers.
About 70,000 New Yorkers so far have listed themselves with the World Trade Center Health Registry, a database that tracks the health impact of the 9/11 attacks.
The registry has been criticized for excluding large numbers of those potentially sickened outside a designated one-square-mile area.
Despite the insistent denials of city and federal officials, tens of thousands of New Yorkers were unnecessarily exposed to a chemical brew without even the most rudimentary precaution
If a similar rate of illness holds true for those who lived and worked near the Twin Towers, the number of seriously ill New Yorkers could climb to 300,000 in the near future.
Bush lied and people died the creep needs to go to prison.
Bush administration gave Mt. Sinai 75 million dollars. The recuse workers ,God bless them, must have thought they were invincible because only 40% had health insurance .
There was probably toxicity there for a number years in the area but it had to be stirred up . There was probably a lot for a few years until rain washed it into the NYC harbor.
I would ride my bike in that area but I wouldn't 't sniff the hidden corner of a window sill.
