This week on Beyond Organic - Gulf Coast Cough

An estimated 100,000 homes in New Orleans suffered severe flooding when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast last fall.

According to Dr. Gina Solomon, a senior scientist with the National Resources Defense Council, those homes are now contaminated with a mold growth that could pose a serious health hazard to over 20 percent of the population.

Join host Jerry Kay, as we hear about Dr. Solomon’s recent research trip to New Orleans. We’ll also find out how Eric Schmeltzer and his group of former congressional and EPA staff are using a watchdog blog to cut through government spin on Gulf Coast environmental health.
