Today the Louisiana Environmental Action Network released its analysis of air monitoring test results by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA’s air testing data comes from Venice, a coastal community 75 miles south of New Orleans in Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish.
The findings show that levels of airborne chemicals have far exceeded state standards and what’s considered safe for human exposure.
For instance, hydrogen sulfide has been detected at concentrations more than 100 times greater than the level known to cause physical reactions in people. Among the health effects of hydrogen sulfide exposure are eye and respiratory irritation as well as nausea, dizziness, confusion and headache

I have had severe asthma attacks since early May this year and then this week I was plagued with severe fatigue and listlessness, and bouts of dizziness. Well when I found out late last night about benzene that is being absorbed into our air because of the oil spill and all those things are listed as symptoms of exposure to Benzene. I have had them all except Death.
Immediate signs and symptoms of exposure to Benzene, from the CDC:
◦Rapid or irregular heartbeat
◦Death (at very high levels)
I wouldn't say I've exactly had unconciousness, but I have had where I want to wake up but I just can't lift my arms or head or move and that is why I said I was listless.Breathing problems isn't listed, but as I have asthma that is the way I tell if anything is in the air, I begin having attacks.
Have any of you near the Gulf coast have these issues lately? What can we do about it, if anything?
