In this paper, the authors estimate the negative health externalities of extractive mining industries. They do this by combining house hold interviews with mine location and estimating statistical functions of respiratory illnesses and malaria among villagers living close to rural India. The findings suggest scarce empirical literature on environmental justice and public health in India.
