Heavy Metals in Jet Exhaust?! Where's the EPA?

This is not about Chemtrails/Contrails. This is about what has been found in jet
exhaust and areas surrounding airports.

Now, there is a plethera of goodies. Sulfur with turns into sulfuric acid.
Nitrates which affect the ozone. Soot, CO2 (global warming)....etc.

But one that should concern us, is heavy metals. There is plenty of
research on the effect and accumulations of heavy metals from jet

First, if you don't know how toxic heavy metals are to us.

Generally speaking, heavy metals disrupt metabolic function in two basic ways:

First, they accumulate and thereby disrupt function in vital organs and glands such as the heart, brain, kidneys, bone, liver, etc.
Second, they displace vital nutritional minerals from where they should be in the body to provide biological function. For example, enzymes are catalysts for virtually every biochemical reaction in all life-sustaining processes of metabolism. But instead of calcium being present in an enzyme reaction, lead or cadmium may be there in its place. Toxic metals can't fulfill the same role as the nutritional minerals, thus their presence becomes critically disruptive to enzyme activity.

Because their impact is at such a foundational level, heavy metals can be causal factors in literally any health problem.
note: I don't support that websites therapy solution. Chelation is much better. Silver is
also a heavy metal.

OK, so now we know how toxic it is.

A group of scientist sampled on ground exhaust from a couple types of jet engine.
These were a bit older, but the results were eye-opening.

Chemical analyses of jet engine exhaust samples indicate that the
exhaust contains heavy metals. Exhaust samples collected at the jet
engine test cell showed substantial increases in metal concentrations
above the control sample, as shown in Figure 5. Zinc, copper, were all observed at levels 100 percent above the
control. Lead levels were 50 percent above the control; cobalt and vandium were observed at less dramatically increased levels—25
and 28.6 percent, respectively. After establishment of this baseline
metal signature for JEPs, sediment collected at field study sites was
analyzed for heavy-metal content. Results indicate that all of the heavy metals found in the samples of jet exhaust were present in
the sediments of field sites near airports
bold added

Now this was done in 1996. Currently, 13 yrs later, at any one time, there
are up to 5000 aircraft flying in the US alone, not to mention globally.
And this IS a global problem.

And we've put catalytic converters on cars. Switched to more expensive unleaded gas. We've put scrubbers on coal plant.
And the Chinese are not building junk coal plants. They are just as sophisticated and
environmentally concerned as we are. Their children have to live around them too.

We have done nothing to curb jet exhaust. It still has LEAD IN IT!! If anything, it has gotten worse, as
the health of people in general reflects.

Have you noticed how many new respiratory problems there are. Take swine flu for example. It attacks the lungs. Imagine that!

Stimulation of macroalgal growth in some experimental treatments suggests that nitrogenous components may also be associated with JEPs. Our findings show that coastal wetlands near airports may be subject to increased levels of heavy metal and nitrogen deposition.

So, to summarize.

As a Chemtrail believer, I'm reaching out to the debunkers to discuss these
disturbing findings. Where are the metals coming from? It not being generated
by the engine according to scientists. It must be in the fuel.

People ARE being poisoned by this. Breathing these nanoscopic particles is very, very bad for us.

So, where's the EPA on this?

With respect to aircraft and airports, information and data compiled by the U.S. EPA, the U.S. Air Force (USAF), and other investigators involved in the assessment of aircraft engine emissions reveals the following:

There is very little test data and other supporting information available that
identifies the most common types of HAPs in aircraft exhaust.

Really? Have they tried GOOGLE?
