Oil Spill Health Study~KLFY
~Acadiana~ Elevated levels of dangerous chemicals found in the crude oil from the Deep Water Horizon is now being found in our blood.
Wilma Subra has been testing water and soil samples in Acadiana four for decades and what she sees in this latest study concerns her. A blood study that was conducted on four males ages 3 to 43 and one female age 38 in December of last year. Subra says the results of those tests have revealed elevated levels of six toxic and potentially life threatening chemicals associated with crude oil, most notably Ethylbenzene which has been linked to kidney damage and cancer.
