Recently, a News 5 investigation collected samples from multiple beaches in and around the Gulf region. Samples were taken in areas where kids were playing and swimming. The results were absolutely terrifying.

The Intel Hub has heavily documented the Gulf Disaster and this is just another startling revelation in a long line of horrors coming out of the Gulf. What British Petroleum has done is at the very least criminal neglect, if not premeditated chemical rape. Most of the people working for BP have vigorously worked to contain the spill, not knowing that their bosses have done just about everything backwards, with little to regard for human life.

The accepted toxic level for oil is anything over 5 parts per million. Water from orange beach tested at 25 parts per million. The sand around Gulf Shores beach tested at an astonishing 211 parts per million. Remember, these beaches have been left open by officials who continue to claim the, “The beach is safe to swim.” Near Orange Beach, in the very area where kids were happily playing, the water tested a whopping 221 parts per million. How can the EPA and local officials continue to lets citizens frequent these toxic beaches?

As if this wasn’t enough, a sample from the Dolphin Island Marina actually EXPLODED when mixed with an organic solvent intended to separate the oil and water! That’s right, we now have documented evidence of samples exploding upon testing.


Full Story

I know there is already a thread on the exploding water found in the gulf. This was just too much additional information to add to that thread though.

I just can't understand how the people are still allowed to continue to swim there. I know local officials downplay this as well as do BP for the obvious reasons of money and publicity. This is big though. If the levels are really this high, it is going to cause serious injury and illnesses in the people swimming there.

I know there is the one about the exploding oil. I even referenced it here. I could not find anything though on the ppm story that I am presenting here. If there is a story already on this, could you link it here so I can see it please?

the EXACT same story is already in the link you provided. the snippet you provide in your post is basically the transcript of the video in the link you provide.


and i still question the validity of a 'test' that provides no control, no context.

a sample from a marina? imagine that.

OK. Thanks. I'm not able to watch the video on the other one at the moment, and didn't see a written reference to what I posted that I could find. I have asked for this one to be closed.

Thanks and sorry for the duplicate post.
