Crude Oil Spills and Human Health

A new page of links to information on "Crude Oil Spills and Human Health" is now available at .

The page has links to information on how the US responds to oil spills, state agencies in the Gulf region that respond to spills, occupational hazards for professionals and volunteers assisting with clean-up, seafood safety and more. The links under "Featured Sites" focus on the latest updates about the recent spill and subsequent controlled burning of crude oil in the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit oil platform. The page will continue to expand as needed.
