Dish Texas residents test samples in lab

Texas Department of State Health Services chose 28 Dish residents for toxic exposure testing. The residents were chosen through a random process.

The State is awaiting results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The analysis will be conducted by the National Center for Environmental Health, which is the same laboratory that has the data considered a baseline for comparison, the National Human and Nutrition Examination Survey. The lab work is expected to take about a month, according to department spokeswoman Susan Prosperie.

The full report will be available for the public to read. I will not include information on the individuals, which is protected by privacy laws.
