Study says 70
percent of WTC
workers sickened
by lung problems
NEW YORK (AP) -
Nearly 70 percent of the res-
cue and cleanup workers who
toiled in the dust and fumes
at ground zero have had trou-
ble breathing, and many will
probably be sick for the rest
of their lives, doctors said
yesterday in releasing results
of the biggest Sept. 11 health
study yet.
The Mount Sinai Medi-
cal Center study is conclu-
sive proof of a link between
recovery work at the World
Trade Center ruins and
long-term respiratory prob-
lems, doctors said.
"There should no lon-
ger be any doubt about the
health effects of the World
Trade Center. Our patients
are sick," said Dr. Robin
Herbert, co-director of the
group that has monitored
the health of nearly 16,000
ground zero workers.
Herbert said that most
of the patients in the study
first came to ground zero
between Sept. 11 and Sept.
13, 2001, which exposed
them to asbestos, pulver-
ized concrete, mercury and
toxins that will leave them
chronically sick.
"Our patients were very,
very highly exposed, and
are likely to suffer health
consequences as a result
of that for the rest of their
lives," she said.
Herbert was joined by
lawmakers who accused
the federal government of
not doing enough to protect
the workers' health and not
spending enough to treat
them.
Mayor Michael Bloom-
berg cast doubt on the
study's claims, saying,"'I
don't believe that you can
say specifically a particu-
lar problem came from this
particular event."

Rival vows to form
alternative leftist
government
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Felipe
Calderon was declared president-
elect yesterday after two months of
uncertainty, but his ability to rule
effectively remained in doubt with
rival Andres Manuel Lopez Obra-
dor vowing to lead a parallel leftist
government from the streets.
The unanimous decision by the
Federal Electoral Tribunal reject-
ed allegations of systematic fraud
and awarded Calderon the presi-
dency by 233,831 votes out of 41.6
million cast in the July 2 elections
- a margin of 0.56 percent. The
ruling cannot be appealed.
Calderon now must win over
millions of Mexicans angry that
President Vicente Fox, who is
from Calderon's party, didn't make
good on promises of sweeping
change - and fend off thousands
of radicalized leftists who say they
will stop at nothing to undermine
his presidency.
Lopez Obrador, whose support
is dwindling but becoming more
radical, said he will not recognize
the new government.
"I do not recognize someone
who tries to act as the chief fed-
eral executive without having
legitimate and democratic repre-
sentation,' Lopez Obrador told

followers at Mexico's main central
plaza, the Zocalo.
Lopez Obrador has vowed to
block Calderon from taking power
Dec. 1. Protesters outside the tri-
bunal wept as the decision was
announced and set off firecrackers
that shook the building.
"We aren't going to let him
govern!" Thomas Jimenez, a 30-
year-old law student, screamed as
hundreds of protesters threw eggs
and trash at the courthouse.
The decision by the seven judg-
es - who have split their votes
in disputes about other elections
- also found that Fox endangered
the election by making statements
that favored Calderon, and that
business leaders broke the law
by paying for ads against Lopez
Obrador, who promised to govern
on behalf of the poor.
But the problems weren't seri-
ous enough to annul the results,
they said.
"There are no perfect elections'
Judge Alfonsina Berta Navarro
Hidalgo said.
The court rejected most of
Lopez Obrador's allegations,
including his claim that an ad
campaign comparing him to Ven-
ezuelan President Hugo Chavez
unfairly swayed voters. The court
also dismissed Lopez Obrador's
claim of subliminal messages in
television ads by pro-Calderon
businesses.
