This report documents the grave health risks posed by air emissions from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Decomposing manure from these operations results in emissions of noxious air pollutants like ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and volatile organic compounds. Public health experts have linked pollution emissions from CAFOs to a suite of illnesses including lung damage and even death. This report also comments on how and why EPA and States have exercised their authority under the Clean Air Act to measure and control these emissions in only a few instances.
