Do waste incinerators kill infants?

Michael Ryan of Shrewsbury began examining the health record of incinerators after he considered that the loss of two of his children could have been the result of having lived downwind of an incinerator.

In this podcast he puts the case that after incinerators start operating that  infant death rates rise in locations exposed to emissions. He feels well-placed to do so due to personal circumstances and extensive research over the last two decades.

I have worked since 2009 with Michael on a series of Big Issue North articles and which can be read here.
