Lung Problems Rife Among WTC Responders

Article in the Los Angeles Times -- Lung Problems Rife Among WTC Responders, by Amy Westfeldt of the Associated Press:

    at ground zero have had trouble breathing, and many will probably be sick for the rest
    of their lives, doctors said Tuesday in releasing results of the biggest Sept. 11 health study
    yet.

    at the World Trade Center ruins and long-term respiratory problems, doctors said.
