Why are so many people in the Gulf region getting sick?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with toxicologist Riki Ott about the human health epidemic she is witnessing in the Gulf since the BP oil disaster. How much (or how little) do we know about the health effects of oil and dispersants? How much is being covered up? Join us live at 10 or send us an email at The EPA says dispersants are safe. So what explains the rise in health problems? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
