Chemical poisoning from Exposure to Corexit 9527 (2-butoxyethanol +) and/or Corexit 9500 following the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, April 20, 2010?
The towel he holds is stained with merely a portion of the blood he coughed out of his lungs on the way to hospital. After being tested for Tuberculosis, with negative results, the hospital staff, ER doctors, Radiologists, and Serologists, all told him "We can't see anything wrong with you," and, was sent home without treatment.
Had his girlfriend not shown up to check on him during the night, he would have died. For as he slept, his lungs continued to bleed profusely, nearly causing him to drown in his own fluids.
It was not until two months later, after gathering his medical records, and taking them to another doctor, did he find out what had really happened to him.
This is what happened to merely one individual who, unknowingly, was exposed to nearly deadly levels of Corexit 9527 and 9500 mixed with Louisiana crude oil while kayaking the waters off of Cedar Key, Florida during the month of April, 2011.
This poses two very important questions:
- Is exposure to the toxic levels of Corexit 9527 and 9500 causing unthinkable ailments in Gulf side residents? Is the food chain in the Gulf of Mexico now tainted due to continued exposure to the toxic cocktail of Corexit + Crude Oil (which is, as referenced in some reports, nearly 52 times more deadly than before the combining of the two)?
- Will continued exposure, whether through breathing the salt air, basking on the Gulf beaches where Corexit foam-filled tides lap at the shore daily, and/or eating the seafood (in particular crustaceans and bivavles - bottom dwellers) continue to make those who are already sick even more ill, and all the while sickening those who, based on the Government's promises that the Gulf waters and seafood are safe, chose, and will choose, to vacation on the rim of this toxic cesspool?
