New Bhopal Illnesses

NEW DELHI -- Researchers said Tuesday they had linked new illnesses to the 1984 Bhopal toxic gas leak, and said the Indian government should prepare for more health problems to emerge with time.

Researchers called on the government to build a network of community clinics for gas victims. They also said doctors should move away from treating symptoms with powerful drugs and concentrate on teaching patients exercises that could strengthen lungs and muscles to help them cope with illnesses expected to last a lifetime.
