I'm not paranoid, nor do I live in fear. Far from it. What I see in that link is that many of them were involved in biogenetics, aerosols, military technologies, bioterrorism, etc. I just find it a bit peculiar that people with that type of sensitive knowledge died in such odd ways.
In 1948 the American Petroleum Institute published a toxicological review of benzene, noting that benzene causes leukemia and that the only safe level of exposure to benzene is ZERO ppm (parts per million). The first epidemiologic study of benzene among Pliofilm rubber workers showing significantly increased risks of leukemia was published in 1977. Since then, many epidemiologic studies of benzene have been done, which establish benzene as a cause of various human hematologic cancers and diseases. Among the diseases that have been associated in the literature with benzene are acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), hairy cell leukemia (HCL), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), Hodgkin's disease, multiple myeloma, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), aplastic anemia, pancytopenia, other cytopenias, myelofibrosis, and polycythemia vera.
Extract of "Airports: Deadly Neighbors"
by Charles R. Miller
About the Author: Mr. Miller was formerly a supervisor with a major airline and is currently a director of the Alliance of Residents Concerning O'Hare (AReCO) working on airport environmental issues.
What kinds of health effects may be occurring to the population in your neighborhood can be seen from a report, dated June 20, 1997 to the Georgetown Crime Prevention and Community Council by the Seattle-King County Department of Public Health. Georgetown is an area of Seattle, and surrounds the King County International Airport (Boeing Field), King County, in turn, surrounds greater Seattle. (The Georgetown Council is a sister organization to AReCO and member of US-CAW (United States Citizens Aviation Watch). When comparing hospitalization rates for Georgetown (Zip Code 98108) to those of King and North King Counties, the following, alarming statistics resulted:
a 57% higher asthma rate
a 28% higher pneumonia/influenza rate
a 26% higher respiratory disease rate
an 83% higher pregnancy complication rate
a 50% higher infant mortality rate
genetic diseases are statistically higher
mortality rates are 48% higher for all causes of death: 57% higher for heart disease, a 36% higher cancer death rate with pneumonia and influenza among the top five leading causes
average life expectancy 70.4 years (the same as in many developing nations) compared to Seattle's of 76.0 years.
Did you ever wonder what blows out of a jet airplane? Here is what you'll find in the air around an airport:
Freon 11, Freon 12, Methyl Bromide, Dichloromethane, cis-l,2-Dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-Trichloro-ethane, Carbon Tetrachloride, Benzene, Trichloroethylene, Toluene, Tetrachloroethene, Ethylbenzene, m,p-Xylene, o-Xylene, Styrene, 1,3,5-Trimethyl-benzene, 1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene, o-Dichlorobenzene, Formaldehyde, Acetaldehyde, Acrolein, Acetone, Propinaldehyde, Crotonaldehyde, Isobutylaldehyde, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Benzaldehyde, Veraldehyde, Hexanaldehyde, Ethyl Alcohol, Acetone, Isopropyl Alcohol, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Butane, Isopentane, Pentane, Hexane, Butyl Alcohol, Methyl Isobutyl Ketone, n,n-Dimethyl Acetamide, Dimethyl Disulfide, m-Cresol, 4-Ethyl Toulene, n-Heptaldehyde, Octanal, 1,4-Dioxane, Methyl Phenyl Ketone, Vinyl Acetate, Heptane, Phenol, Octane, Anthracene, Dimethylnapthalene (isomers), Flouranthene, 1-methylnaphthalene, 2-methylnaphthalene, Naph-thalene, Phenanthrene, Pyrene , Benzo(a)pyrene, 1-nitropyrene, 1,8-dinitropyrene, 1,3-Butadiene, sulfites, nitrites, nitrogen oxide, nitrogen monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen trioxide, nitric acid, sulfur oxides, sulfur dioxide, sulfuric acid, urea, ammonia, carbon monoxide, ozone, particulate matter (PM10, PM2.5).
One aircraft take-off can burn thousands of pounds of fuel.
The pollution from just one, two-minute 747 takeoff is equal to operating 2.4 million lawnmowers simultaneously.
The immunotoxicology of jet fuel:
In the early 1990's the United States Air Force began introducing a new safer, less explosive jet fuel, JP-8. Health complaints by engine mechanics and fuel handlers prompted a systematic effort to study the immunosuppressive potential of JP-8. We are testing the hypothesis that that dermal exposure to JP-8 induces immune suppression. Both DTH in vivo and T cell proliferation in vitro were suppressed following dermal application of JP-8. Suppression results after a single large exposure to JP-8, or following multiple smaller exposures. The effect of JP-8 is selective; doses of jet fuel that completely suppress DTH and T cell proliferation fail to interfere with antibody production. Cytokines and biological response modifiers, especially IL-10 and PGE2 appear to be involved. We are particularly interested in determining the mechanisms underlying JP-8-induced immune suppression. We are particularly interested in determining whether using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can overcome JP-8-induced immune suppression, thereby reducing the risk factor that jet fuel exposure has on the health status of exposed personnel. Ullrich, S.E. (1999) Dermal application of JP-8 jet fuel induces immune suppression.
