2002 ATSDR CDC EL PASO TX study suggested that nearly 30% of children within one mile of ASARCO had elevated blood lead levels

THIS IS NEAR THE NEW WALMART DEVELOPMENT AND THE MONTECILLO PLANNED DEVELOPMENT that dug off the toxic overburden (by the way -- where did they take it??).

"The distance of residence from smelter versus percentage of elevated blood lead suggests children living closer to the smelter had higher percentages of elevated blood lead test results than children living farther away from the smelter (Figures 6 and 7). Seven of the 24 children (29%) living within a mile of the smelter had elevated blood lead results (Table 4)."
