A STUDY OF CARBON MONOXIDE SOURCES IN THE ST. LOUIS METROPOLITAN POPULATION AND SOME POLICY IMPLICATIONS

The results are reported of a lengthy interdisciplinary and interinstitutional research effort involving a hospital Blood Program, health centers, air monitoring agencies, and traffic data sources. The research report here was undertaken to fill the gap in the biological, medical and pollution aspects of black ecology. The question is considered whether the environmental pollution in large metropolitan areas was higher in sections inhabited by the poor (which includes a high proportion of blacks) than in the outer rings of the more affluent.
