The ‘Horribly Mutated’ Seafood in The Gulf of Mexico

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.

Smartdust in the drinkable water, dust and urine (microscope samples) Gulf Seafood | FDA Voice By: Michael R. Taylor, J.D. This week, the Fish and Wildlife Service will begin a series of public meetings on the draft plan for the restoration of damage to natural resources resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. It is natural that the discussion of this plan would also raise the question of whether Gulf seafood is safe to eat. When the Deepwater Horizon spill occurred, there was a great deal of concern over the safety of the region’s seafood. When we developed the sampling program, we had to determine which components of the oil were harmful so we could test for their levels in the seafood. The FDA, NOAA, EPA, and the Gulf States, discussed and agreed on a level of PAHs that would raise a health concern. It is also important to understand the process we used to sample the seafood. This process of double testing is not unlike the screening we go through when entering a court house, for example. Michael Taylor is Deputy Commissioner for Foods at FDA

“Experts” Push For Lithium To Be Added To Our Drinking Water Wakeup-World Apparently there are not enough chemicals already added to our drinking water, as there is now a call by “experts” to further poison our water supplies by adding Lithium. Their main reason is to decrease suicide and violent crime rates. So it this how we wish to function as a society? What is Lithium usually prescribed for? Bi polar disorder Agitation not associated with bipolar disorder Depression and to boost the effect of antidepressants As a mood stabiliser Sever Migraine Headaches“Much like fluoride, lithium alters the brain’s normal production of serotonin and norepinephrine, which in turn artificially alters the way an individual thinks and how he or she feels about a given situation. “Lithium has been heralded by some experts as the next potential flouride, after scientists found suicide rates were lower in areas where the drinking water had higher concentrations of the element, reports the Daily Mail” Source “Time to supplement? What are some side effects of Lithium?

Organic attack: bogus Stossel undefined How John Stossel falsified evidence Cultivating the Truth About Organics San Francisco Chronicle, August 2000 Report on Organic Foods Is Challenged New York Times, July 2000 Food Fight The Nation, January 2002 Cultivating the Truth About OrganicsThe San Francisco Chronicle AUGUST 21, 2000, BY Brian Halweil I WATCHED IN DISBELIEF as John Stossel, co-anchor of ABC's "20/20," delivered a half-hearted apology August 11 for falsifying evidence in a report that claimed organic produce is potentially more dangerous than food raised using toxic agrochemicals, antibiotics, added hormones, genetically engineered seeds and massive animal-feeding factories. In his apology, Stossel did admit that some tests he relied on to support his conclusion had never been conducted. What wasn't mentioned is that most of the manure spread on land in the United States is, in fact, used by conventional farmers. Here are a few other things that weren't mentioned: Dr. The producer of the segment, David W.

Fluoride - Adverse Health Effects Fluoride can be one of the most volatile and active harmful chemicals in the body. Fluoride can attack mercilessly, against any age group, but its effects are especially harmful to developing children and the elderly. The detrimental effects of fluoride are varied. Below is a list of some of the recently documented, harmful effects of drinking fluoridated water: 1) Fluoride is known to cause dental fluorosis, a defect of the tooth enamel caused by fluoride’s interference with developing teeth.

Consumer Health Articles: FLUORIDE, THE SILENT KILLER FLUORIDE, THE SILENT KILLER by: Yiamouyiannis, John, Ph.D. Dr. Yiamouyiannis received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Rhode Island and served his post-doctoral fellowship at the Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He then became editor at Chemical Abstracts Service, the world's largest chemical information center, where he first became aware of the health damaging effects of fluoride. He is the former science director of the National Health Federation; he is the executive director of Health Action and president of the Safe Water Foundation. HARMFUL EFFECTS OF FLUORIDE Fluoride is used as an insecticide and a roach killer. FLUORIDE A BY-PRODUCT OF INDUSTRY Fluoride is an industrial waste product, a by-product of the aluminum industry and the phosphate fertilizer companies who have mountains of fluoride that is polluting the ground water. FLUORIDATED TOOTHPASTE Unless it says on the package does not contain fluoride, you are using fluoridated toothpaste.

“I can’t afford to eat right” I was cycling in the canyon with my friend Kara last week, and she was telling me about being raised by a single mom on a very fixed budget. Kara was one of several children, and she said to me, “My mom was a rock star. She fed us all healthy food, because it was cheap.” Wait…..what? For how long? Here are CHEAP WHOLE FOODS Kara was raised on, and I’ve mixed into the list the ones I was raised on, too: Rolled oats (oatmeal)All kinds of beansPotatoes and sweet potatoesGreens and tomatoes, peppers, etc. from the garden (fresh, and frozen in a used freezer)Apples and bananasHomemade whole wheat bread (use organic wheat, or better yet, spelt or Kamut)Fruit trees (freeze the fruit when it’s in season)Nuts and seeds from co-ops This isn’t necessarily “high raw,” I realize. It really is not true that the only way to live cheap is to eat processed food. I never knew we were poor. (I got paid to professionally decorate cakes, when I was in junior high school. I guess it can be done.

Antibacterial soap pollutes rivers, adds to bacterial resistance (NaturalNews) New highly resistant strains of bacteria are showing up in urban water sources and regional streams and rivers. These new bacteria strains are rendering new antibiotics practically useless. New environmental studies from the Chicago metro-area are now reporting disturbing levels of powerful bacteria strains coming from specific urban areas that rely on single sewage pipes connected to combined sewer overflows. A paper published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, unveils the causes behind the new strains of bacteria. The culprit: triclosan resistance in a natural environment. Triclosan is a synthetic antibacterial chemical often added to personal body care products. It is constantly being flushed down the sewage system. The chemical was initially invented as an antibacterial agent for surgeons in the 1960s. Honest body care manufacturers could start using natural antibacterial ingredients like grapefruit seed extract. Sources for this article include:

As Countries Get Richer, They Trade Hunger for Obesity, in One Chart - Olga Khazan And many have obese and extremely malnourished people living side-by-side. Mexico in 1937 and in 2011. (AP) Last week there was news of a rare victory -- if you can call it that -- in Americans' decades-long battle against bulge: We're no longer number one in obesity, it turns out, we're number two. But another thing happened in that same time period: Mexicans have been moving to cities. A new report from the Food and Agriculture Organization shows that the two trends might be connected. There are many things that go wrong when you don't eat the right kinds of food, but the one of the most serious problems is stunting -- put simply, kids don't grow like they should when they don't eat enough. In any given country, as more people move to cities, the prevalence of stunting diminishes. Here's how it works: Urbanization leads to new, more sedentary types of jobs, as more people start slinging expense reports instead of hay bales. The good news?

Sodium Fluoride: Rat Poison, Sarin Nerve Gas, Prozac, No antidote! | Planet iCare First of all, it needs to be stated that the ‘substance’ referred to as ‘Fluoride’ is a misnomer – there is no such substance listed in the periodic chart of the elements, nor in the prestigious CRC handbook, nor in the sacred ‘bible’ of the pharmaceutical industry – the illustrious ‘Merck Index’. Instead, we find a GAS called Fluorine – and from the use of this gas in various industries such as aluminum manufacturing and the nuclear industry -certain toxic byproducts are created which have ‘captured’ fluorine molecules. One such toxic, poisonous ‘byproduct’ is called sodium Fluoride – which according to the Merck Index is primarily used as rat and cockroach poison and is also the active ingredient in most toothpastes and as an “additive to drinking water”. To illustrate the emotional vs. the scientific nature of this issue, just look at the response given by people (perhaps yourself included?) Do you have diabetes and/or kidney disease? Apparently, the public outcry by Dr.

Enjoy The Radioactive Fish: Tests Show Fukushima Fish Are Up To 124X Above Safe Level Michael SnyderActivist Post Are you purchasing radioactive fish at the grocery store? Are you absolutely certain that you know the answer to that question? You are about to read about a test that discovered that a fish recently caught off the coast of the Fukushima prefecture was found to have 12,400 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium. That is 124 times above the level that is considered to be safe. But it is not just fish caught off the coast of Japan that you need to be concerned about. Each day, another 300 tons of highly radioactive water is released into the Pacific Ocean at Fukushima, and that means that the total amount of radioactive material that is getting into our food chain is constantly increasing. Strangely, the mainstream media in the United States has been extremely quiet about all of this. That same article also noted that a fish that was caught last year near Fukushima contained a level of cesium that was actually far greater… Would you eat such a fish?
