Thanks to Dr. Zell McGee for providing the overview of this study.
The American Journal of Public Health published, “Respiratory Disease Associated with Community Air Pollution and a Steel Mill,” in 1989 by Pope, C.A., III.
In a Utah county when a coal-fired industry that was inactive started up again, the rate of admission of children to the hospital with respiratory disease went up 300%. The admission rate of adults went up 44%. The responsible industry did not pay for those hospitalizations. These events may be a preview of what will happen if Duke Power is allowed to build and operate Cliffside.
