Nurses Oppose Keystone XL Pipeline!

 

[quote]On July 25, 2010, a tar sands oil pipeline ruptured near Marshall, Mi. The diluted bitumen traveled 40 miles down the Kalamazoo River to Morrow Lake. More than a month later, health providers reported 145 patients with symptoms associated with the spill. State officials surveyed 550 people from communities along the river and found 53 percent of the residents reported health problems – headaches, nausea and respiratory ailments.[/quote]

Directly seeing the impact on the health of their neighbors, National Nurses United have joined with others opposing the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Thank you nurses!
