Gulf Seafood Deformities Raise Questions Among Scientists And Fisherman

Gulf Seafood Deformities Raise Questions Among Scientists And Fisherman
While the true extent of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill was not known for about 4 years, as Al Jazeera notes in the video above, the repercussions of BP's 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico may become apparent more quickly. Discovering eyeless shrimp, lesioned fish and other mutated and underdeveloped seafood, fisherman in the Gulf are pointing fingers at the BP spill. Biologist Dr. The Gulf Restoration Network's Scott Eust explained the bizarre shrimp deformities. Al Jazeera reports that both the government and BP maintain that Gulf seafood is safe. A study published last October in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that the FDA allowed "up to 10,000 times too much contamination" and didn't identify the risks to children and pregnant women posed by contaminated seafood. Government testing standards were questioned months after the spill. Related on HuffPost: Related:  Pollution & it's effects.

The ‘Horribly Mutated’ Seafood in The Gulf of Mexico BP oil spill: The ‘horribly mutated’ creatures living in the Gulf. Fish, shrimp, and crabs are missing eyes and suffering strange deformities, according to a harrowing new report — yet the FDA insists the seafood’s safe to eat. Shrimp born without eyes, clawless crabs, and fish with visible tumors are among the “horrible mutated”marine animals found in the waters off the Gulf Coast, according to a new report from Al Jazeera. Scientists say the problem is a side effect of the April 2010 explosion of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which killed 11 people and spilled at least 4.9 million barrels of oil into the ocean. Here, a brief guide to the damage: “The fishermen have never seen anything like this,” Dr Jim Cowan told Al Jazeera. Gulf of Mexico fishermen, scientists and seafood processors have told Al Jazeera they are finding disturbing numbers of mutated shrimp, crab and fish that they believe are deformed by chemicals released during BP’s 2010 oil disaster.

Sodium fluoride is used to make Sarin gas as well as clean teeth An article by anti-fluoridation campaigner Walter Graham provoked a strong response with one reader pointing out that one of toothpaste’s constituent parts is used to make sarin gas. Here are two letters, which have been slightly abridged due to space constraints. Stephen McMurray, Newtownabbey writes: I recently came across an article in your paper regarding fluoride. It is worth noting that despite the Government saying it is safe, only a few months ago, the Government was accusing the Syrian regime of using chemical weapons of mass destruction and the so-called proof was alleged documents which showed British companies had sold sodium fluoride to Syria. A, Wills, Ruislip, writes: The fluoride used in water fluoridation is fluorosilicic acid - toxic waste from factories.

A Sour Deception: Citric Acid Comes From GMO Black Mold, Not Fruit Aaron DykesActivist Post Just what is your food made of, anyway? Try industrial synthesis, genetically modified mold secretions, hydrochloric acid, mercury-contaminated caustic soda, ferrocyanide… and, of course, lots of GMO corn. If common ingredients like “citric acid” and “ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)” sound normal and familiar enough that you practically conjure up an image of the flourishing orchard they were grown in – then think again. Picture instead an industrial factory, carrying out protocols developed in a lab, produced with enough winding nozzles, tanks, valves, pipes and other thinga-ma-jiggers to create a meandering and disorienting Dr. Instead, mass produced citric acid and ascorbic acid are hidden GMO ingredients that reportedly set off allergenic responses for some sensitive consumers. Feel free to peruse these blogs and forums for complaints about citric acid from those allergic or intolerant to citric acid itself, mold & yeast and/or corn. Photo credit Aaron Dykes.

Fukushima now radiating everyone: 'Unspeakable' reality - National Human Rights CBS exposes extreme Fukushima radiation human rights violations while U.S. media remains silent Australia's CBS exposed the "unspeakable" realities of the Japanese catastrophe in its 60 Minutes program Sunday night during which leading nuclear scientist Dr. Michio Kaku said radiation from Fukushima will impact of all of humanity. "In fact the whole world will be exposed from the radiation from Fukushima," Dr. "We are already getting radiation from Fukushima," Dr. Just as Australia's SBS exposed in depth the reality of the 2010 BP Gulf of Mexico catastrophe unlike any U.S. mainstream news station, Sunday, Australia's CBS has now exposed in depth the Fukushima catastrophe. "The Fukushima crisis is far from over. As Hayes traveled through now deserted areas of rubble, that were once houses, toward Fukushima, the silence was shattered by the beeping of deadly gamma radiation fallout 40 kilometers from the crippled nuclear power plant. Introducing Dr. Dr. "Ah, knowingly? Dr.

Was bedeutet Earth Overshoot Day? Die Menschen verbrauchen innerhalb von acht Monaten die Kapazität der globalen Ressourcen eines ganzen Jahres. Am 20. August war Earth Overshoot Day, der Tag, an dem die Menschheit die natürlichen Ressourcen eines ganzen Jahres erschöpft hat. Momentan brauchen wir die natürlichen Vorräte auf. Ähnlich wie die Banken Buchhaltung über Einkommen und Ausgaben führen, führt Global Footprint Network Buchhaltung über Angebot und Nachfrage an natürlichen Ressourcen und ökologische Leistungen durch die Menschheit. 1993 fiel der Earth Overshoot Day auf den 21. Das Konzept des Earth Overshoot Day wurde ursprünglich vom Britischen Think Tank new economics foundation gegründet. Der menschliche Verbrauch an globalen Ressourcen Die Folgen ökologischer Überbeanspruchung Schon immer verwenden Menschen natürliche Ressourcen um sich zu ernähren und Städte und Strassen zu bauen. Methoden und Aussichten Im Jahr 2011 kam der Earth Overshoot Day einige Wochen später wie im Jahr 2010.

Leaked TTIP Documents Expose Chemical Industry’s Toxic Agenda A report published Monday by the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) and ClientEarth shows how a leaked proposal from chemical lobbying groups could damage future protective legislation on toxic chemicals. The documents, drafted by the American Chemistry Council and the European Chemical Industry Council, were injected into last December’s Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations—an action that exposes the extent of the chemical industry meddling into secretive and ongoing U.S.-EU trade talks. “This proposal illustrates two huge and interrelated problems with TTIP,” said Baskut Tuncak, staff attorney for the Center for International Environmental Law. The chilling effect of chemical industry interference with prospective TTIP regulations could include: slowing down the implementation of precautionary decisions on toxic chemicals, undermining democratic decision making and stifling the innovation of safer alternatives.

NASA Admits To Chemtrails As They Propose Spraying Stratospheric Aerosols Into Earths Atmosphere It’s really amazing how many people are waking up to the fact that “chemtrails” are different from “con-trails.” What was once considered a conspiracy to many is now a fact, chemicals are constantly sprayed into our atmosphere and have been for quite some time now. Not long ago, NASA personnel gave a lecture (that was also streamed live) at their Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology. It was a series of talks by scientists and engineers exploring the topic of Geoengineering and Climate Intervention. (1) Some of you might be thinking, “Geoengineering, what is that?” These programs are also considering spraying Aluminum into the atmosphere (if not already doing it). “There might be some good reasons to think about aluminum. The idea of spraying aluminum into our atmosphere goes way back, patents exist that clearly demonstrate the consideration of such materials that include the oxides of metals which have high emissivity. Below is a very informative video.

How Garlic May Save the World – The Plate: Rebecca Rupp Writer and gardener John Evelyn—who, in 1699, wrote an entire book on salads (Acetaria: A Discourse of Sallets)— was not a fan of garlic. Spaniards and Italians, he noted snidely, ate the stuff with almost everything, but its “intolerable Rankness” made it a no-no for the respectable British veggie eater. “To be sure,” he added, “’tis not for Ladies Palats, nor those who court them.” “Garlicks, tho’ used by the French,” wrote Amelia Simmons in American Cookery in 1796, “are better adapted to use in medicine than cookery.” As late as the Second World War, Charles Fraser-Smith—spymaster for British intelligence and the inspiration for Q, the genius gadgeteer of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels— had to deal with the home-front unpopularity of garlic. For all who wouldn’t touch garlic with a ten-foot pole, however, history lists as many who adored it. There’s some truth behind garlic’s gaudy medical reputation. Which brings us to cows.
