New Orleans, La. – Anne Rolfes of the Louisiana Bucket Brigade says 954 coastal residents were surveyed from July to October. She says nearly half of the people who believed they were exposed to crude oil or dispersants got sick. The National Institutes of Health is launching a study of 55-thousand clean-up workers.
