NIH Begins Study Of BP Disaster Impact On Residents

corexit

Today, the U.S. government launched what’s being billed as the largest study ever conducted of how an oil spill affects human health. The Gulf Long-Term Follow-Up Study will survey Gulf of Mexico residents who helped with the cleanup of last year’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill and follow them for at least 5 years.

The $19 million study by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) will contact people known to have been involved in the gulf cleanup efforts and ask them to undergo physical examinations and fill out questionnaires about their health. This direct approach will be more encompassing than simply relying on extant medical records, principal investigator Dale Sandler, head of the epidemiology branch at NIEHS, explained at a teleconference today. “People might not be complaining, they might just feel lousy and not report it,” she says.
