What is the legacy of 911? (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show). One of the less well-known results of that attack has to do with the TOXIC DUST that was given off when those buildings fell down. So far, over 60,000 people--mostly rescue workers or those who cleaned up the debris, but also people who lived in the neighborhood of the Twin Towers--have been diagnosed with chronic lung conditions they contracted that day.
These include asthma, constant coughing and also muscular and intestinal conditions. Early death is expected for many of them. The dust, which blew though lower Manhattan, contained a dangerous mix of chemicals and substances, including asbestos.
In BBC News, David Shukman quotes Dr. John Howard, of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, as saying that inhaling the dust caused people to "lose (the) capacity to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide, and essentially your lung is forming a scar inside so you have less ability to breathe."
And it won't be over soon: Shukman quotes Troy Rosasco, a lawyer for some of the victims, as saying, "This is just the beginning. This is not--10 years out--the end. We're going to be facing people getting sick with 9/11 related injuries and illnesses for another 20 years at least."
