[or not..either way..one more excuse to spread

[quote]According to Dr. Patricia Williams, a University of New Orleans toxicologist, highly toxic compounds
have been found in Chinese drywall and prolonged exposure to these compounds can cause serious
problems. Strontium sulfide may be dangerous to developing children; it affects bone growth.
Chronic exposure to these gases may affect the central nervous system (including visual and sensory
changes), cardiovascular system, eyes, kidneys, liver and skin. Infants, children, the elderly and
infirm (particularly those with heart and lung disease and diabetes) and pets may have an increased
vulnerability to these gases and the particulates that are released from the drywall. The particulates
from Chinese drywall may invade and adhere to other building materials in the home's structure and
personal objects within the home. [/quote]
