Norlite Dust Health Risk

Test results of dust particles coming from the Norlite facility in Cohoes show that they pose a significant health risk to nearby residents. We hear from Dave Walker, a Ph.D. geologist and professor emeritus at Columbia who did the testing; Leonardo Trasande, MD, Chief of the Division of Environmental Pediatrics at the NYU School of Medicine; and local resident and parent Chris Sevinsky, who has a PhD focused in Biomedical Science and Cancer Biology. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network. For more info, see
