Blood Poisoning

Heavy Metals and PAHs Found in Gulf Residents' Blood

Radio Interview

"They are actually finding the toxins that are in the oil in the blood of the people who live down there. Its horrifying because they’re cumulative and they’re heavy metals and toxins…

We used three different doctors, and the exact same thing that is being found in the water and the air and the soil is now in the blood.

This is the kind of stuff that causes cancer and death. This is not just in the workers that we’ve had tested, but also in residents…

The worst part about that is we haven’t even gotten to the Corexit testing yet. This is just the oil, the polyaromatic hydrocarbons, the heavy metals, the arsenic.

And they’re not just people who are right on the beach, some people are really inland."

Like I've been writing for months, the poisons that BP unleashed are now being found not only in the sea life and inland vegetation, but in the blood of the residents of the Gulf states. The damage has only begun to be detected.

  1. The gulf has always been the dumping grounds for all sorts of chemical companies.
