British Petroleum, be very afraid. Wilma Subra, PhD, 68, is a chemist and technical adviser to the Louisiana Environmental Action Network team investigating lingering health and environmental problems following 2010’s cataclysmic Gulf Coast oil spill. She recently reported that blood samples from cleanup workers and residents near the spill area show alarming levels of toxic chemicals known to cause cancer, genetic mutation and reproductive problems.
