Coal kills. That’s the message of The Silent Epidemic: Coal and the Hidden Threat to Health by Alan H. Lockwood, MD, University at Buffalo emeritus professor of neurology.
Lockwood’s book examines how human health is harmed by the burning of coal, which supplies nearly half of the energy in the U.S. and a far greater percentage in industrializing countries such as China, India and Brazil.
