You my not know this but many of you are consuming dioxin, yes thats what i said. DIOXIN is also the biproduct of SOAPS AND BLEACH AND PAPER MILLS and and on and on. There are small amounts of dioxin STILL IN THE BLEACH. A wile back many salmon ponds where closed down in californa because they tested high in dioxin . This is why the more you wash your hands , the lower your imune system will be, making you more likely to catch colds and flues.

No...I didn't know that part of the problem with antibacterial soaps is the production of dioxins. Paper mills also - knew that the chemical processes were bad for the environment in the same way that the benefits of clothing made from natural fibers can be completely negated by the chemicals used in their manufacture but didn't know that dioxins are a byproduct of these processes. I guess switching to a natural soap is not going to help either because, through pesticide use, and subsequent run-off, the stuff is in the water.

Rising Levels of Dioxins from Common Soap Ingredient in Mississippi River, Study Finds

ScienceDaily (May 25, 2010) — Specific dioxins derived from the antibacterial agent triclosan, used in many hand soaps, deodorants, dishwashing liquids and other consumer products, account for an increasing proportion of total dioxins in Mississippi River sediments, according to University of Minnesota research.

Triclosan is incompletely removed during the wastewater treatment process, and when treated wastewater is released to the environment, sunlight converts some of the triclosan (and related compounds) into dioxins.

A Lawn Care Pesticide Threatens Health and is Poised to Get Worse

A World War II-era weed killer, 2,4-D, is one of the top three largest selling pesticides in North America today, despite dozens of scientific studies that link this pesticide to lymphoma, cell damage, hormonal disruption, and reproductive problems. Once a chief ingredient in Agent Orange, 46 million pounds of 2,4-D are still used every year in the United States alone, applied to lawns, playgrounds, golf courses, and millions of acres of agricultural land. 2,4-D contaminates our air and water and finds its way into our homes, tracked in by shoes and pet paws. The application of toxic 2,4-D will dramatically increase if new genetically modified (GMO) corn and soybean crops are approved, putting thousands more Americans at risk. Vietnam Veterans of America opposes this action until such time as an environmental impact study is performed and believes that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should restrict use of 2,4-D and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) should not allow new "2,4-D Ready" crops on the market until then.

If we're discussing a dioxin it would therefore be useful to specify which one is being referred to. To avoid any possible confusion

I think we got the point already in tsurfer's post and, in an effort to include, I'll make the concession of pluralizing and assigning lower case, i.e. 'dioxins'. It is in Monsanto's interests to separate and compartmentalize dioxins because then each dioxin producing substance becomes a new and different case for their army of lawyers and scientists on the payroll to dispute and refute. They win; we lose. And, in the end, their argument is only semantics. People still get sick and fish still die and guinea pigs still implode through organ failure and the dioxin producing compounds go on to be implanted directly into the food we eat.

Dear King of Trivia: Monsanto doesn't want Dioxin from Round-Up-Ready linked with Agent Orange. Make sense?

It would if you actually knew what you were talking about.

What does round up have to do with agent orange exactly?

They were made by the same company,but they are two chemically different products.

You may have to much dioxin in your brain, SO here is the COUNTERMEASURE ; carrot juice .It has an acid in it that breaks down synthetic LONG CHAIN CHEMICALS.

When ddt came to market the salesmen would drink a glass of it in front of the farmer that they where trying to sell it to .
ALL LONG CHAIN CHEMICALS that are not part of natural foods ARE BAD FOR YOU.

I was talking about long chain chemicals not found in natural food but made in labs or sythetic franken foods. thanks for pointing out my lack of clairity.

The Day Mysterious Gelatinous Blobs Rained Down on Washington State Residents The townspeople of Oakville, Washington, were in for a surprise on August 7, 1994. Instead of their usual downpour of rain, the inhabitants of the small town witnessed countless gelatinous blobs falling from the sky. Once the globs fell, almost everyone in Oakville started to develop severe flu-like symptoms that lasted anywhere from 7 weeks to 3 months. Finally, after exposure to the goo caused his mother to fall ill, one resident sent a sample of the blobs for testing. What the technicians discovered was shocking—the globs contained human white blood cells. The substance was then brought to the State Department of Health of Washington for further analysis. Another startling revelation followed: they discovered that the gelatinous blobs had two types of bacteria, one of which is found in the human digestive system. However, no one could successfully identify the blob, nor how they were connected to the mysterious sickness that plagued the town. This article attempts to tackle this mystery as well - 'Unsolved Mysteries' episode ('The Blob') - As always, you decide for yourself.

"White blood cells"?! "human digestive bacteria"!! + People sick for months! = Biological Warfare!

No it didn't.

Firstly the "blobs" did not actually fall in the town at all - they fell (or were noticed) on a farm near the town.

And ONE person (perhaps 2) became ill - and a kitten on the farm died a few days later, which may or may not be related.

The idea that they fell on windscreens, lots of people got ill, and some other aspects of your story appear to be sensationalist additions for "Unsolved Mysteries" - faithfully replicated by "Unsolved Mysteries Wiki"

The nature of the blobs as "formerly alive" was known soon after the incident - not a year later, and no aircraft were mentioned anywhere near the place - although some theories involved the substance being the dreaded "blue ice" for aircraft lavatories - which it certainly was not.

It is not even a clever beatup of a minor mystery!

See also the wiki article

Black military helicopters were sighted in the Oakville, Washington area before rain storms brought the fall of the unknown substance.

Except no-one mentions them in they initial reports linked above - only when TV comes to town....WeirdUS article

In 1997, residents of in the Everett area of Washington State reported a similar clear gelatinous substance falling from the sky, according to a guest on Art Bell’s syndicated radio program. “Art’s guest says she received hundreds of calls from people all over the country that have also reported the fall of deadly gelatin blobs.”

Deadly?? Who died?

Well this is a well documented mystery. The people in all the Washington towns claim it made them sick. The military as useuall denied everything and offered rediculous excuses.

The military didn't offer any excuses at all - people made up stories about it.

You decide for yourself, but I think it is likely.

That's because you believe anything as long as there is no actual evidence for it!
