Up scientists seeking the cause of the american legion mystery illness shifted their emphasis to natural and Man made poisons yesterday but continued searching for viruses that might be the killer agent. The Center for disease control in Atlanta confirmed earlier state findings that Swine flu was not responsible for the disease that has killed 25 persons who attended the legion convention two weeks ago in Philadelphia. I think we can All breathe a sigh of Relief that this is not said cd director David Sencer. There was no evidence the ailment had spread beyond convention goers.

He said there have been instances in the past when similar though less severe outbreaks had not been understood. A wide variety of toxic substances could be responsible but state officials said none had yet turned up in Laboratory testing. They said Mexico logical tests sometimes take weeks to find traces of chemical in tissue specimens. I would say our emphasis is shifting definitely toward said state health Secretary Leonard Bachman.

Sencer said the cd s toxicological Laboratory in Chamblee ga., reported that heavy Metal poisoning did not appear responsible for the outbreak but said organs phosphorous and chlorinated hydrocarbon compound were possibilities. Chemistry is even More complicated than he said. Asked at an Atlanta news conference if the cd was concentrating solely on poisons Sencer replied of no we re continuing with All aspects of Laboratory three teams of investigators in Philadelphia were examining the places where the legionnaires met and ate in a search for dues that might unravel the mystery.
