...says this guy.
The terms of my current employment do not allow me to email the paper to disagree, but I certainly think that we need to do a better job of raising awareness about this issue.

You should probably read the article before you react.

The article in question so much does not say that the 9/11 Sickness is a hoax, but much more that the deaths that have occurred, that some say are 9/11 related health issues, are not.

I kinda got the impression that he was trying to imply that that anyone claiming to be ill from complications from 9/11 is just using that as an excuse to cover up other health problems not linked to 9/11.

I had an uncle who died six years ago from mesothelioma, a condition caused by exposure to asbestos dust. His case was traced back to a ship collision while he was in the Navy in the early 1950's. He was a fireman in one of the ship's boiler rooms.
A lot of the 9/11 cases may not manifest themselves for years."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

I don't think anyone can argue that breathing that crap from the towers, in pulverized powder form, for months on end, won't cause a whole host of health issues. The least of which is death.

I did read the article before I posted. I stand by my original assessment. I think the author comes off sounding like a patronizing jackass. If you think people working on that pile arent or arent getting sick, you are a jackass too.IAFF-IACOJ PROUD

Like I said before, I read the article. I also was able to read between the lines. The author comes off just a bit too glib for my liking.IAFF-IACOJ PROUD

To me it seemed the author was trying to tell another side of the story but it was obviously jaded to one side, not done objectively at all like the media should be.
I also think we won't see any serious signs of illness for 20 years or better.... just like Agent Orange in VietnamJason Knecht
