NY state teens suffering

This morning on CNN I saw a story about the high school students that are suffering a mystery illness,similar to Tourette's Syndrome. One girl could not complete a sentence without being seized by muscle spasms. Parents are outraged-rightfully so. What I found disturbing was that some of the teens have STOPPED GOING TO SCHOOL. Wait a minute. In this situation, the school officials should be BENDING OVER BACKWARDS to accomodate these bright young men and ladies,doing whatever it takes to ensure they recieve an education. The danger may be in the school itself. 1 mother looked ready to physically pounce on someone at a forum on the issue.

Something needs to be done QUICKLY,done NOW,with the best interests of those affected being the ONLY priority!

And no,it's not mass hysteria-the blame is NOT on these kids!

Just saw the story on Nightline

N.Y. Mystery Illness: Parents Want Erin Brockovich On the Case - ABC News

Quote:
Leubner and other parents are demanding that the school allow environmental activist Erin Brockovich to investigate potential environmental causes behind the disease.

Brockovich, who famously linked a cluster of cancer cases in California to contaminated drinking water, prompting an Oscar-winning movie starring Julia Roberts, launched her own investigation last month. She says a derailed train that spilled cyanide and trichloroethene within about three miles of Le Roy High School in 1970 may be behind the Tourette-like symptoms.

"They have not ruled everything out yet," Brockovich told USA Today. "When I read reports like this that the New York Department of Health and state agencies were well-aware of the spill and you don't do water testing or vapor extraction tests, you don't have an all-clear."

Bob Bowcock, an investigator for Brockovich's team, was asked by officials to leave the Le Roy High School property during a visit there Jan. 28 to collect soil, air and water samples from the school grounds.

I think I saw this on Anderson Cooper. Along with the girls in high school, a thirty something year old woman is having the same symptoms in the same area. Its got to be a toxin of some kind.
