    Testimony: Ground Zero Poisoned Workers By Laurie Garrett
    John Graham, health and safety instructor for the Carpenters' Union, said he worked at Ground Zero for 262 straight days and is permanently disabled. He displayed a sack full of medications he now uses daily, including an anti-asthma drug, an antibiotic, an inhaler for asthma attacks, a sinus spray and assorted steroids. 'Today I am a chronically ill man who is anxious about my ability to support my family,' Graham said.
