From the GMR: New NLM page on Crude Oil Spills and Human Health

Please see the following message forwarded from NLM.

A new page of links to information on "Crude Oil Spills and Human Health" is now available at http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/oilspills.html.

The page has links to information on how the United States responds to oil spills, state agencies in the Gulf region that respond to spills, occupational hazards for professionals and volunteers assisting with clean-up, seafood safety and more. The links under "Featured Sites" focus on the latest updates about the recent spill and subsequent controlled burning of crude oil in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill followed the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit oil platform 50 miles southeast of the Mississippi Delta on April 20, 2010.
