162 cases of illness linked to oil spill reported in Louisiana


(CNN) -- Exposure to the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in 162 cases of illnesses reported to the Louisiana state health department, according to a report released Monday. Of those cases, 128 involved workers on oil rigs or individuals involved in the oil spill cleanup efforts, the report said.


Among the most common reported symptoms were throat irritation, shortness of breath, cough, eye irritation, nausea and headaches, according to the department's oil spill surveillance report.


Whoa... These are starting to roll in more and more

I was going to re-post this link to Facebook's Boycott BP page, only to discover it had been deleted. 800,000+ members on that baby, and they got them for copyright infringement. Eeeesh. Anyway, thanks for the original post. The symptoms seem pretty congruent with what I've read so far, like with the 400 at the beach and the various people who've posted here who live in the Gulf.
