Excerpt: This conference has been a real education for me. I have been greatly impressed with the hard work of the many people at EPA and NIEHS that have struggled to make this such a successful conference. The conference got off to a good start with an opening address by Dr. Finklea. He hammered home the sulfur problem with a few statistics: in 1940 there were 21 million tons of sulfur oxide in the U.S. atmosphere and this climbed to 34 million tons in 1970. Another item that made me sit up and take notice was that mortality studies compared with sulfate levels indicate that at 25 pg/m3 and above, there is a significant increase in mortality rate over that observed at lower values. More work must be done to define permissible levels, but this starts to give an idea of a level not to be exceeded.
