I was under the impression that Sisko destroyed the biosphere, rendering the planet uninhabitable. He didn't introduce anything directly lethal to the colonists.

Also, they have a bit more resources than 'we' do, and finally, N.O. could have been evacuated with the proper application of resources.
He released trilitium resin into the atmosphere. It's a waste product produced by warp engines. In Starship Mine the bad guys tried to steal some from the E-D, and it was commented more than once they had to be careful with it or they would "be dead before they know it" and tampering with the container blew up the terrorist chick's ship. It's also the same crap that was in those uber warheads Janeway used to destroy the Caretaker's array. That stuff's lethal.
As a high yield explosive its deadly, as something that can be breathed in I'm not so sure.
It's good enough to destroy the biosphere of an entire planet. I don't claim to be a technobabble biology expert, but I'm fairly sure anything that kills an ecosystem in an hour probably going to kill people too. Otherwise why was Eddington so POed and why were the scrambling what ships they had instantly?
