does anyone recall any sensible safety advice about how to clean people?
It is all good, nothing to see here, now get back to work and eat your fish. Medical community has just failed at addressing the toxicity putting many
of the cases down as influenza from pressure by BP executives and incompetence from the federal medical board.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) should use to diminish toxic poisoning from the Gulf disaster. Sodium bicarbonate is the number one item in any
protocol to treat exposure to harsh chemicals coming from the oil disaster. The very best treatment, when one first notices a foul smell, taste or
flu-like symptoms is to jump into a bath with several pounds of bicarbonate and magnesium salts.
What are going to be the long term effects for the environment, adults, and children from the Gulf?
according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dispersants can cause central nervous system problems or damage to the blood, the
kidneys, or the liver, and leave a metallic taste in the mouth.
People in communities where the oil fouled the beaches had much higher incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety all of
which translates into higher rates of heart attacks, high blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory disorders and other physical illnesses. This is a
slowly expanding medical disaster whose true shape and depth will unfold for many years to come even if the oil was shut off tomorrow.
Volatile Organic Compounds Are Main Threat Doctors and everyone need to know that the chemicals released into the air by evaporating oil and/or
dispersants include hydrogen sulfide, benzene, methylene chloride, 2-butoxyethanol and other toxic gases known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
All are highly toxic to humans and physical reactions from exposure to these gases may include:
Irritation of eyes, nose or throat
Coughing or difficulty breathing
Nausea or vomiting
Rapid or irregular heartbeat
Death (at very high levels)
How many generations are going to be effected.
It is going to be a mess for a long time to come. I suggest you move if you live anywhere near the area.
what about the effects of the corexit on peoples health?
About 4 times more toxic than the oil that was released. The EPA only has broken links to the MSDS for Corexit
. This means it is pretty dangerous stuff to talk about and shows a complete lack of
responsibility by the EPA. Some reports suggest about 2 million barrels have been used but it is really hard to find any solid data. There are more
environmentally solutions available for oil dispersant and clean up, but not as much profit for the people making the decisions.
