The Houston-Chronicle investigated and tested the air quality in four Texas communities that surrounded some of the state's largest industrial plants. Their tests showed that the plants in these communities were releasing "air toxics" into the air and were thus increasing the resident's risks of kidney and liver damage, along with many other serious heath problems. Furthermore, the Houston-Chronicle found that Texas air regulations are among the most lenient in the country.
