With the advent of oil shortages caused by the oil cartel in the Middle East, the possibility of using synthetic fuels became of interest. Because of the vast reserves of shale oil on the Colorado plateau, research on this fuel began to increase. The present morbidity study, an outgrowth and continuation of an earlier Birmingham study, was one of the results of increased interest in synthetic fuels.
