now they tell us? ----------


Are any human health effects expected as a result of using the dispersants?
People working with dispersants are strongly advised to use a half face
filter mask or an air-supplied breathing apparatus to protect their noses,
throats, and lungs, and they should wear nitrile or PVC gloves, coveralls,
boots, and chemical splash goggles to keep dispersants off skin and out of
their eyes. CDC provides more information on reducing occupational exposures
while working with dispersants during the Gulf Oil Spill Response
<http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/oil_spill/dispersants_and_your_safety.htm> .
