Excerpt
Excerpt: Industrial hog production has grown rapidly in North Carolina since the early 1980s. Once characterized by relatively small independently owned farms scattered across the state, hog production in North Carolina is now concentrated in the coastal plain region, under the domain of large corporate growers, and dominated by large-scale intensive operations (1,2). Persons who live near large hog operations have reported reduced quality of life as well as health problems related to airborne emissions from animal confinement houses, open waste lagoons, and spray fields (3?8). Airborne emissions include hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, dusts, endotoxins, and complex mixtures of volatile organic compounds. Health effects from environmental exposures could occur through inflammatory, immunologic, irritant, neurochemical, and psychophysiologic mechanisms (5).
