From: Frank Bures, M.D.
On Monday, February 25, at 7 p.m. in the Figliulo Recital Hall, Performing Arts Center of St. Mary’s University, Dr. Wayne Feyereisn, M.D. from Mayo Clinic, Internal Medicine Department, will present and discuss known and pertinent facts about the health effects of silica sand dust and diesel fumes.
It is a free public information meeting, open to anyone. Both silica dust (microscopic sand particles) and diesel fume particles are known class one carcinogens. Because of the looming potential of exponential increases in volume of exposure to both of these from the proposed frac sand mining issues, it is information of vital and crucial importance to all of us and to our children.
The program will also include information on truck routes from proposed mines, their environmental impact, and background on the proposed MN Proppant sand processing plant in St. Charles.
It is co-sponsored by CASM, Izaak Walton League, and Concerned Citizens of St. Charles. Take a big breath of our nice air, and plan to attend.
