Expert sees big mental health effects from BP spill

I came across an interesting, but disturbing article today. "The mental health impacts of the BP oil spill will dwarf those encountered after the last major oil spill off U.S. shores, a sociologist who studied the Exxon Valdez spill told Florida volunteers on Tuesday." With so many people being affected by the spill, it's no wonder that the mental health impact will be huge. If you want to read the whole article, here's the link: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_100537.html
