According to an April 2013 Newsweek.com article, BP hired over 170,000 contractors to spray and inject more than 1.8 million gallons of Corexit, a dangerous chemical dispersant, into the Gulf of Mexico after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in April 2010.*
BP officials allegedly told workers that it was unnecessary to wear respirators or protective 'hazmat' gear when handling Corexit during cleanup. Cleanup workers have reported side effects such as nausea, rashes, chemical burns and upper respiratory infections.*
A September 2013 study published in the American Journal of Medicine found that cleanup workers also face an increased risk for cancer, kidney and liver damage from exposure to the oil and chemical dispersants.**
