The Consumer Product Safety Commission has released the results of a 51-home study (pdf, 190pp) of the effects of corrosive drywall today. According to the executive summary (pdf), the study found “a strong association between the problem drywall, the hydrogen sulfide levels in homes with that drywall, and corrosion in those homes.” The interagency task force will continue its investigation into health effects of corrosive drywall.
