88. You've seen the reports, as well. Here's a link to Congressional testimony:

by http://energycommerce.house.gov/documents/20100610/Solo... Testimony of GINA M. SOLOMON, M.D., M.P.H.
SENIOR SCIENTIST, NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL,
ASSOCIATE CLINICAL PROFESSOR, U.C. SAN FRANCISCO
DIRECTOR, UCSF OCCUPATIONAL & ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE
RESIDENCY PROGRAM
ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR, UCSF PEDIATRIC ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
SPECIALTY UNIT

Dr. Solomon's testimony references some of the early reports.

As you know, most of these illnesses (the most serious ones) don't manifest immediately, and that's for epidemiological studies to estimate over time.

There have been repeated reports of throat and skin irritation in coastal areas. They have appeared as clusters, rather than as uniform outbreaks, which is not surprising. You've probably also seen some of them, and can look them up.

It's all consistent with a serious, long-term health hazard. Why are you trying to deny that?

If not this, what do you think are the "real" issues?
