Thread Name: oranges and creosote
Subject: RE: oranges and creosote
Creosote apparently can be fairly nasty. Not too many years ago a woman friend and her family, including a new-born, moved into a fairly modern rental house. They were sick all that winter and finally the doctors suspected poisoning from some creosote soaked timbers that had been used to build the house. The family immediately moved out and were better in a very short time. They sued, but I never heard about the final settlement.
