Description

This examination centers on an Indianapolis neighborhood that has had more people die of lung cancer than anywhere else in Marion County. The investigation found that residents of the neighborhood, in an industrial part of town, were hospitalized for respiratory problems at rates more than three times the county average. Nevertheless, state and local health officials have done almost nothing to investigate documented risks from air pollution or the health problems they may cause.
