The statistics are numbing. Drug overdoses killed 64,070 people in the U.S. in 2016. The death toll was up 21 percent over 2015. All indications are it will be even higher when the 2017 numbers are determined, according to the CDC. Overdoses are more than an epidemic; they’re a national crisis.
I know ISHN magazine is quoting reports by other sources, but I know for a fact that OSHA and EPA did extensive air sampling for air contaminants at Ground Zero of the World Trade Center after 9/11. Results of the sampling were posted in the OSHA and EPA web sites.
