An article on US News & World Report’s website earlier this week reported that a Florida woman has been complaining of burning eyes, sinus headaches, and a general heaviness in her chest since moving into her brand-new, 4,000-square foot house in Florida a few years ago.

In 2006 alone enough wallboard was imported from China to build roughly 34,000 homes in Florida. For the residents of the over 100,000 homes affected by the defective drywall across the country, questions remain as to what the severity of these health risks will be.
