The Oil Spill and its Health Effects

One of the major concerns associated with the oil spill that resulted from the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon is the possible effects the oil and tar may have on human health. Because Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida have all experienced some degree of oil washing ashore, more and more people are potentially being put at risk.

A Danger to Health

While experts are still debating the potential health risks faced by the oil cleanup crews, there have been a number of reports documenting the illnesses they may face. According to one shrimp fisherman who has been working to clean the Gulf, several members of the cleanup force have been suffering from strange symptoms which could be caused by the oil fumes. Some of the symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Flu-like symptoms

If you have been exposed to the oil spill and are experiencing such symptoms, it may be important to see a doctor.
