Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Dust Storms: Schwartzs Response In response to our paper reporting no excess risk of death in Spokane following dust storms when compared to appropriately chosen controls (1), Mage cites an article from the 1930s that anecdotally reports high rates of respiratory illness during the dust bowl period in the Midwest. This period, which coincided with the Great Depression, was a period of extreme social and economic stress. Since our paper was published, a reanalysis of three diary studies by Neas and Schwartz (2) has reported that lung function and lower respiratory symptoms were associated with fine particles but not coarse particles. Gold et al. (3) reported that heart rate variability is associated with fine particles but not coarse particles. These new results confirm our findings, which are also supported by the toxicology studies cited in our paper. Based on this evidence, I find the anecdotal reports from the 1930s unconvincing.
