NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Studies at four Gulf Coast universities will focus on continuing fear that last year's oil spill is making people sick, especially if they eat lots of fish.
All four will look at people's mental and physical health over the next five years. Three will also look for oil-related chemicals in fish landed by people whose catch makes up a big part of their own food.
The National Institutes of Health are providing $25 million to look for lingering results of the spill, which released more than
200 million gallons of oil over five months into the Gulf.
Tulane University's medical school is getting $6.5 million; LSU's medical school $3.5 million, the University of Texas Medical
Branch in Galveston $7.8 million and the University of Florida at Gainesville about $7 million.
