soda vs. salt hazard question

Question for the list,
My experience with salt and soda firing is very limited during my college
years, yet I have fallen in love with those pieces most of all. Now I am at
a point in my work where I would like to get back into firing with soda. The
kiln is planned for construction on some rural property, yet I am concerned
that the fumes from soda may cause a preblem for the neighbors, maybe 50-100
yards away.
I have been absorbing all the lists' facts and feelings on salt but would
like to have some more on soda.
Is soda less toxic, less environmentally harmful, etc.?
Please post me or the list.

Thank you for your time,

Anthony Wolking
