As a nurse, I have been speaking daily with people who have been sickened from the Gulf waters! One in particular whom went swimming in Florida with his best friend and now is very ill. His best friend died 2 weeks later! So far he has been spared, but definitely been poisoned!
I tell you this as the absolute truth. I have been working with Dr. Riki Ott to help thousands sickened by the oil disaster. These people NEED HELP!! I am glad that some have been spared. But when I see toxicology reports, stating "UNKNOWN CHEMICAL EXPOSURE" I am a believer! it is not up to me or anyone else to convince people that this is a reality, and is actually happening. I do feel a responsibility to tell what I have seen with my own eyes and to use my medical knowledge to alert the public to the real disaster that has taken place.
I realize the situation with illness is not affecting everyone, however, just because it is not happening to you does not invalidate the claims of others who are suffering terribly!
Very well said,and thank you for sharing your story.
The truth has to be exposed and the story needs to get out there to everyone! How would you get the story out to the MSM? Or maybe they know,just more interesting stories out there.
The media has turned a deaf ear to the catastrophe that has taken place. Please, now is not the time for us to stick our heads in the sand, nor is it the time to prove some radical conspiracy. It is the time to help our fellow man.
Thanks for the excellent thread!!
BP’S GULF COAST LEGACY: MORE SICK CHILDREN THAN WE’VE EVER SEEN BEFORE
Children on the Gulf Coast are falling ill in record numbers. Children who never had health problems before the BP oil spill are suffering from an array of debilitating ailments from chronic bronchitis to staph infections to acute sinusitis to mysterious “stomach viruses.” The ranks of the sick continue to climb, overwhelming doctors and clinics up and down the Gulf Coast. And to make matters worse, few treatments and medications – like antibiotics – seem to be working, so symptoms persist. Local doctors are baffled. Parents are panicked, frustrated and knee-deep in medical bills. But, of course, it’s the children who are suffering the most. As we approach the second anniversary of the worst environmental disaster in our nation’s history, coastal communities on the Gulf of Mexico are in the grips of a spiraling health crisis. Symptoms consistent with chemical poisoning are becoming increasingly common – particularly among children – and lack of medical training and resources is exacerbating an already dire situation.
A new video from the nonprofit Louisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN), which is going viral this week, does a superb job of documenting this forgotten chapter in the tragic story of the Gulf oil spill.
