FYI -- The Oakland Press link doesn't seem to exist -- the original
story is from the New York Times -- this is about CAFOs in Ohio -- AW

See:
"Waste from hog farms may pose health risks" pg A-10, Oakland Press,
Sunday May 11, 2003. www.thheoaklandpress.com

Info attributable to Dr. Kaye H. Killburn, Prof., Univ of So Calif.

Suggests exposure to Hydrogen Sulfide (Ammonia too?) has caused
neurological damage for those proximate to the farms. However, the
industry says that it cannot be proven.
