(ALARMING VIDEOS) BP Oil Dispersant Corexit: Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding, Penetrates Into The Cells and Organs…WTF???


Toxicologists: Corexit “Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding”, “Allows Crude Oil To Penetrate “Into The Cells” and “Every Organ System”

As I have previously noted, Corexit is toxic, is less effective than other dispersents, and is actually worsening the damage caused by the oil spill.

Now, two toxicologists are saying that Corexit is much more harmful to human health and marine life than we’ve been told.

Specifically Gulf toxicologist Dr. Susan Shaw – Founder and Director of the Marine Environmental Research Institute – dove into the oil spill to examine the chemicals present.

Dr. Shaw told CNN:

If I can tell you what happens — because I was in the oil — to people…

Shrimpers throwing their nets into water… [then] water from the nets splashed on his skin. …

[He experienced a] headache that lasted 3 weeks… heart palpitations… muscle spasms… bleeding from the rectum…

And that’s what that Corexit does, it ruptures red blood cells, causes internal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage. …

This stuff is so toxic combined… not the oil or dispersants alone. …

Very, very toxic and goes right through skin.

The reason this is so toxic is because of these solvents [from dispersant] that penetrate the skin of anything that’s going through the dispersed oil takes the oil into the cells — takes the oil into the organs… and this stuff is toxic to every organ system in the body. …

Similarly, marine biologist and toxicologist Dr. Chris Pincetich – who has an extensive background in testing the affects of chemicals on fish – says that Corexit disrupts cell membranes.

He also explains that EPA toxicity testing for Corexit is woefully inadequate, since EPA testing for mortality usually only requires a 96-hour time frame. His doctoral research found that fish that were alive at 96 hours after exposure to pesticide were dead at two weeks, so the chemicals were considered non-lethal for the purposes of the test.

Drs. Shaw and Pincetich are wildlife conservationists. But even industry scientists working for Exxon and the manufacturer of Corexit itself admit that the stuff is toxic.

Why Is BP Using Highly Toxic Corexit Oil Dispersant?

Fellowship of the Minds

Last Tuesday, June 8, a team of scientists confirmed what many of us suspect: Vast underwater concentrations of oil sprawling for miles in the Gulf of Mexico from the damaged, crude-belching BP PLC well are unprecedented in human history and threaten to wreak havoc on marine life
. The scientists’ finding was confirmed for the first time by federal officials. As Paul Quinlan and Josh Voorhees of Greenwire report

Researchers aboard the F.G. Walton Smith vessel…traced an underwater oil plume 15 miles wide, 3 miles long and about 600 feet thick…. “It’s an infusion of oil and gas unlike anything else that has ever been seen anywhere, certainly in human history,” said Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia, the expedition leader.

Bacteria are breaking down the oil’s hydrocarbons in a massive, microorganism feeding frenzy that has sent oxygen levels plunging close to what is considered “dead zone” conditions, at which most marine life are smothered for a lack of dissolved oxygen….

Less clear to researchers like Joye are what role the unprecedented deployment of oil-dispersing chemicals are having…on fisheries. “The primary producers — the base of the food web in the ocean — is going to be altered. There’s no doubt about that,” Joye said. “We have no idea what dispersants are going to do to microorganisms. We know they are toxic to many larvae….“

There are good reasons to be concerned about the dispersant Corexit that BP is using. Since the regular media (the supposedly conservative FoxNews included) are not doing their job, Fellowship of the Minds looked into the matter. The following is a Primer on Corexit. Sources used for this primer are identified at the end.

What is Corexit?

Corexit is a line of oil dispersants or solvents, originally developed by Exxon and now manufactured by Nalco Holding Company (NHC) of Naperville, IL. Interestingly, NHC is associated with Exxon and British Petroleum (BP) — the latter is the same company that insists on using Corexit.

An oil dispersant is basically a detergent, like your diswashing detergent. It disperses or breaks up the oil film into small droplets that intermix with seawater.

Is Corexit Effective?

Corexit 9500 was 54.7% effective and Corexit EC9527A was 63.4% effective in handling Louisiana crude oil. Corexit is not a very efficient oil dispersant; there are others that are better.

Is Corexit Safe to Use?

The short answer is “No!” Corexit is highly toxic to humans as well as marine life.

The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified the 2-butoxyethanol in Corexit to be a causal agent in the health problems experienced by cleanup workers after the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill of respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders.

According to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), Corexit 9500‘s “potential human bazard is: High.” It can cause central nervous system depression; nausea; unconsciousness; liver, kidney damage; and red blood cell hemolysis with repeated or prolonged exposure through inhalation or ingestion.

Ok, Am i Going to Be the First To Say This???…

This Is all Intentional, Yes Totally on Purpose… They Get EVERYTHING They Ever Wanted…

Let’s See, No More Drilling, A Further Hit To The Economy, More Unemployment, More Foreign Oil, Higher Gas Prices, Higher Prices on Everything, Cap and Trade, An Enemy that When BP Goes Bankrupt will Be Gone Unlike Terrorism, This Is In the Gulf Stream So it will be a “Global” Problem , Oh and best of all They Get To Unleash A never Before seen Amount of SLOW KILL weapons into the Water , The Seafood , The Clouds , The Air, And Eventually Into Every Living Being In The Gulf…

You see what Happened To the 9/11 First Responders $76,000 for a life…. Seems Like a Bargain to Me … How Much has The Wars Cost Us to Kill American Soldiers? And Don’t Forget When The Sick And Unemployed Citizens Of the Gulf DARE , DARE to Question and Get Justifiably Angry and Perhaps Violent Over the Fact Their Garbage Government Has Once again LIED to them About The Toxic Dangers They and Their Children Are Being Exposed too,,,

That’s When They Can Clamp Down , Declare Martial Law in The Gulf Region and Confiscate Our Firearms and our FREEDOM… NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE… Wake Up America, Why are We Sooooooooo Stupid?
