The first Chinese drywall lawsuit begins this month, and here is some good information on this ongoing issue: Among other problems, people living with Chinese drywall have suffered eye, respiratory, and sinus problems that may be linked to the gases emitted from defective Chinese drywall that produce a sulfurous odor and permeates homes, causing metals, including air conditioning coils and even jewelry, to corrode.
