Genocide In the Gulf: Expected Lifespan of Children Reduced by 25%
by Dave Hodges
Next week marks the sixth anniversary of the “Great Gulf Coast Holocaust”. The media would have you believe it is over. It is not! I guarantee that I am the only writer who is publishing a story on this subject. However, it is difficult to believe based upon the evidence, that the Gulf oil spill is not the number one cause of death in America. This is the most ignore health story of its type. Based upon the epidemiological evidence, the Gulf should immediately be evacuated. The poison is in the air, it is in the water, it is in the food, and it is in the people. Children growing up in the Gulf region, now, should expect a 20-30% lower lifespan than the rest of the country. And the Gulf is still leaking oil.
The people in the Gulf are in grave danger. The health reports, the geological reports and the weather reports are suggestive of one thing, the people of the Gulf are looking at greatly reduced lifespans. If they move now, they could mitigate some of the effects. The key word is some.
From the scientific evidence that I have seen, if I lived in the Gulf, I would immediately leave to a safer location.
There are many quiet voices, fearing repraisal who say that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, is still leaking oil. There are others, shrimp fisherman out of work, who are hired by BP to help with Corexit dispersal missions. Over five years after the accident, Corexit is still being sprayed at night by BP, for profit, and they are using people from the Gulf who have lost their incomes and need the work. They will speak privately, but are afraid to speak out for fear of losing their income. I have spoken with a half dozen over the last three years. These Corexit spraying missions are endangering the quality of the air, the water, the land and the food. The Gulf is catastrophe of Bibllical proportions waiting to consume millions with related health effects caused by Corexit. Originally, the EPA told BP, Nalco and Goldman Sachs that they could not use Corexit on the oil spill. BP gave the EPA the big middle finger. Further, as I covered 5 years ago, the Corexit does not disperse the oil, it submerges it into the water column. This sucks all the CO2 out of the water and has a devastating impact on the environment and the species inhabitating this environment.
