Last week at the Baton Rouge Press Club, Dr. Michael Robicheaux spoke in-depth about the large number of sick people that he has been treating since the BP oil disaster occurred. The sick include workers who worked on the response to the disaster as well as divers, fishermen and coastal residents.
Since the BP disaster began we have been receiving an unsettling number of calls from people dealing with unusual health problems, said Paul Orr of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network.
“Dr. Robicheaux is an old friend and ally and we feel extremely grateful that he has enthusiastically stepped forward to help these sick Gulf Coast citizens who have had difficulties finding help elsewhere,” he said in a press release.
Watch the video of Dr. Robicheaux’s speech about what seems to be a growing health crisis in our Gulf Coast communities.
And remember, we reported it here first.
