Smoke from burning in the Iraq oil will kill  peopleThe smoke from the burning oil, which, allegedly, was set on fire to prevent strikes on Baghdad, is a serious concern of scientists. They believe that the harmful substances, which are formed by the incomplete combustion of petroleum products, can seriously affect the health of people in this city and the surrounding area and lead to thousands of deaths. This was discussed at the briefing of the Royal society in London, which was devoted to the effects of oil spills and fires in the course of this war. Professor Ian colbeck (Ian Colbeck) from the Department of biological Sciences University of Essex said that especially worried about particles smaller than 10 micrometers, which can easily penetrate into the lungs and can cause cancer. Mention the fact that the level of pollution in Baghdad now should greatly exceed the standards set by the world health organization, he said: "I think that will be from 1000 to 5000 deaths over time as a result of the fires." He compared life in Baghdad of being in a garage with cars, engines which operate at full capacity. James, Rodman (James Readman), Professor of biochemistry from the Plymouth marine laboratory, noted that it is especially afraid from the combustion of oil and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. They not only cause cancer, but as it was found in experiments on animals, can lead to congenital malformations. [Рњednovosti.ru].
