    The plant where my husband worked had a number of asthma
    victims. As a matter of fact the whole town suffers from
    asthma. The plant was using powdered formaldehyde and the
    waste was being burned off in the incinerators (air bourn).
    When I asked the asthma rate at the health unit in this town,
    the response was "we quit counting". To date, nobody has
    done anything about it. What a devastating price to protect
    the employer.
