News of the United States poisoning eight American humanitarian aid workers in the Gulf of Mexico region continues to rock human rights groups. Florida Oil Spill Law compiled and released a video of this news (below). The entire Project Gulf Impact film crew have been hospitalized with life-threatening poisoning symptoms. Coastal Heritage Society of Louisiana (CHSL) radio program show host, Joannie Hughes is hospitalized due to being poisoned.
Kindra Arnesen, the Venice mother and independent researcher is very ill.
Vicky Perrin of CHSL are also very ill with symptoms of poisoning.
The video does not include the poisoning of reporter/filmmaker Gregg Hall, the first noted front line aid worker to fall. This attempted murder - or genocide - continues daily throughout the Gulf Region and now up the east coast with credible reports including photographic evidence from victims in Tennessee and Ohio, impacting people of all walks of life. The petrochemical-military-industrial-complex is still spraying one of the most lethal chemicals, Corexit, onto water and land, now from skiffs going further inland spraying it,Human pathways of exposure to Corexit include inhalation, ingestion, skin and eye contact. Health impacts include: headaches; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; abdominal pains; dizziness; chest pains and tightness; irritation of eyes, nose, throat and lungs; difficulty breathing; respiratory system damage; skin irrigation and sensitization; internal bleeding; hypertension; central nervous system depression; neurotoxic effects; genetic damage and mutations; cardiac arrhythmia and cardiovascular damage; among several others.
Corexit exposure is deadly, if not immediately, eventually. The combined crude oil toxins and Corexit yields a brew 11 times more toxic the crude, that is lethal.
