(ConcernedPatriot.com) – After a train accident earlier this month that let dangerous chemicals into the air, people in East Palestine, Ohio, are showing strange symptoms that one doctor called “chemical bronchitis.”
According to reports, local healthcare professionals are noticing an increase in patients from the East Palestine region who report they don’t feel well.
A number of residents and workers near the Ohio train derailment site are reporting symptoms of bronchitis and other conditions believed to be linked to chemical exposure. NBC News' Jesse Kirsch shares the latest reporting. https://t.co/09h9M81VQl pic.twitter.com/1DJIDnwxOr

Employees at QUICKmed Urgent Care told the publication that patients are telling them about similar symptoms, like rashes, a burning feeling when they breathe, and a general feeling of weakness.
Even some East Palestine residents have said they start to feel better after a brief absence from the city, only to feel ill once more upon their return.
As QUICKmed’s Deb Weese told WKBN,
“This may be a number of things, but if you’re leaving your house and [symptoms] get better, and you go back and they come back, I’m not thinking that’s allergies or that it’s a cold.” “I believe it is connected to that substance you are breathing in there.”
Weese stated that “chemical bronchitis” might cause a burning feeling when breathing.
They must keep track of all of their symptoms, because, let’s face it, something could develop in the future that is caused by the toxins they are breathing in that we are unaware of.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says that the train crash killed more than 43,000 fish and other aquatic animals. Cleanup work is still going on.

On February 3, a Norfolk Southern train derailed, dumped hazardous materials into the environment, and started a fire.
To get rid of dangerous chemicals in a safe way, cleanup workers set fire to five train cars, creating a dangerous plume of smoke that looked like a mushroom cloud.
Then, pictures of the controlled explosion spread on social media, raising worries across the country.
While many who were forced to leave their homes in East Palestine have recently been advised that it is safe to do so and even to drink the water, many still have serious concerns.
