Stop open burning of sugar cane fields in Palm Beach County November 15, 2023

Howard Kessler, MD, President of PSR Florida | The Palm Beach Post

The inhalation of pollutants from these burns poses a grave health risk, releasing particles that can provoke asthma attacks, contribute to the development of lung cancer, and lead to cardiovascular complications such as heart attacks and strokes. Our elderly population is exceptionally vulnerable, facing increased risks of hospitalization and mortality. Likewise, the health of children is imperiled as they absorb these toxins more readily due to their developing respiratory systems.
