Learn: Pollution and Health Effects
The SEED Coalition has helped release many reports regarding coal burning power plants and the health effects of air pollution. Clear the Air has an excellent web site- http://cta.policy.net - which has numerous reports, as well as ways to take action online.
To learn more about the health effects of air pollution, read the American Lung Association's fact sheet on Children and Air Pollution . SEED has helped to release two recent reports dealing with pollution and health: a national report entitled "Laid to Waste: The Dirty Secret of Combustion Waste from America's Power Plants" from March 2000, and an October 1999 study called "Out of Breath: Health Effects from Ozone in the Eastern U.S." You can read the Laid to Waste press release , the Laid to Waste fact sheet , or the entire Laid to Waste report; and the >Out of Breath press release or a fact sheet containing the Texas statistics from Out of Breath.
