Dr. Edward Holifield – Black Infant Mortality in Gadsden County

“How high does black infant mortality have to get in Gadsden County, Florida before people are concerned?”

Dr. Edward Holifield of Tallahassee, FL poses the question to the Gadsden County Commission during a presentation on the Biomass BioMess proposed for Gretna, Florida by the Concerned Citizens of Gadsden County, Inc. The latest black infant mortality statistics in Gadsden County are 15.6 per 1,000 live births – that’s more than twice the state average. Dr. Holifield presents a study by Kenneth Chay and Michael Greenstone linking air pollution to infant mortality.
