Hidden health cost of 9/11: 70,000 hit with stress disorder

The World Trade Center Health Registry (run by the New York City Health Department) found 400,000 people were "heavily exposed" to the 9/11 disaster either emotionally or physically, reports MSNBC.

According to the Registry, 280,000 people "witnessed a traumatic sight" like falling bodies or a plane hitting one of the towers, and 52,000 "sustained an injury that day." Seventy thousand suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and 12,600 developed asthma.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
