Importance of Study

Many people feel that the study is one of the most important studies ever conducted of exposure related to taconite operations. What is learned from this study could someday improve and even save lives. On the other hand, the study could help show that some exposures people worry about pose little health risk. Either way, it is very important to better understand the health effects of taconite processing that people are exposed to on a regular basis.
