We've been living in Northeast Louisiana for a very long time, and my family, along with many friends, have noticed that the stench/output of the papermill is getting worse.

The stink used to smell more organic, but now it has a terrible chemical smell, which literally makes your eyes water and throat scratchy. Also, when one drives into the city, there is a pale yellow haze hovering over the town, like a fog. It does not leave. Does anyone know what is going on?

There are some really nasty chemicals used in the paper making process . Especially if they produce paper products that are bright white . Paper towels , print paper , etc. I have heard that Dioxin is used in the bleaching process .
