Blaylock Wellness Report: BP Crisis Spotlights Dangers Of Volatile Chemicals To Your Health

As with all modern disasters, getting to the truth is not an easy task. First, people along the Gulf Coast were told that BP and the EPA had placed benzene monitors along the Alabama and Florida coasts, and that there was no indication of any VOCs. A senior reporter from WEAR-TV, an ABC affiliate in Pensacola, was unable to find any air-quality monitors in that area.

Several studies have found there is no threshold for carcinogenesis — that is, a level of benzene exposure at which lower levels are nontoxic. It appears that benzene is toxic at all levels and with chronic exposure — especially in people with certain genetic weaknesses — cancer is likely to develop.

Symptoms from VOCs are many times mistaken for other forms of illnesses, but generally they include headaches, dizziness, nausea, eye irritation, coughing, shortness of breath, nasal irritation, and multiple chemical sensitivity. Some of the gases have an odor, but others are odorless.

Health Effects of the Gulf Oil Spill

Gina M. Solomon, MD, MPH; Sarah Janssen, MD, PhD, MPH

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico poses direct threats to human health from inhalation or dermal contact with the oil and dispersant chemicals, and indirect threats to seafood safety and mental health. Physicians should be familiar with health effects from oil spills to appropriately advise, diagnose, and treat patients who live and work along the Gulf Coast or wherever a major oil spill occurs.

BP, Feds don’t know what’s causing pressure drop: “We’re concerned about the vital signs of this well. We continue to be concerned about the vital signs.”

We’re trying to do two things while the evaluation of alternatives is going on. We have the opportunity to develop more vital signs for the well, one of them being to remove all foreign objects — all foreign liquids from the current well, flush it, and fill it with seawater, so we have exactly the same density of material inside and outside the BOP that will allow us to do an ambient pressure test to see if there’s any kind of pressure, a rise or fall related to something other than what we believe now to be the gas bubbles that are escaping and causing the drop in pressure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what I think happened.

The MMS paperwork for the Macondo well complex indicates two wells were drilled. Early in the year, the "A" well was drilled, but ran into trouble and was abandoned. Then the "B" well was drilled, which resulted in the destruction of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and the massive blowout.

We know that the pipe and well casing for well "B" was destroyed in at least one location about 1000 feet below the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. This was the reasn for the failure of the first "Top Kill" procedure.

CNN reported on two other potential leaks at 9,000 feet and 17,000 feet.

Therefore, it made no sense to try to cap the well July 15th, much less to claim a success, unless BP pulled a fast one and switched the ROV camera back to the abandoned Well "A", and capped that for the benefit of the TV audience. This ia borne out by the navigation data for the ROVs which show the ROV camera showing the cap located well away from the blown out Deepwater Hporizon well "B", at the location for well "A".

Click for larger image So, what I think happened is that under the cover of Tropical Depression Bonnie, the ROV and some ships were moved over from Well "B" to well "A", which they figured could be easily capped for the V audience. But remember, well "A" was abandoned after it ran into trouble, so I think the pipe and casing for well "A" is also damaged, and BP wasn't prepared to deal with both well being blown out below the surface.

That’s like the — the insurance companies deciding down here. Very few people got their money. So, for me, Keith, what — the threat between the first documentary when the levees broke and this one, “If God is Willing, Da Creek Don’t Rise” is greed — is all about greed. And I really think that this is going to bring about the downfall of the United States of America because we have people in office appointed and voted in and people in big business positions who only care about the dollar bill and there are people get harmed, people die. They say that’s the cost of doing business. …

“Ken Feinberg was quoted today saying that ‘I’m watching on TV. The beaches look fabulous.’”

“These remarks came as he seemed dismissive of Floridians who are seeking financial relief.”

“Understanding the serious problems facing Floridians along the Gulf takes more than watching television, and our beaches are not the only place in Florida facing the threat.”

Fisherman Demand Real Representation, Instead are Blamed for Causing, “Bad Press”

This is absolutely disgusting. These fisherman have had their lives destroyed and when they finally had a platform to voice their concerns, they were not only mocked but actually BLAMED for destroying the fishing industry. Who do the representatives at the town think they are kidding? The use of toxic dispersant in the Gulf has poisoned the fish, and wrecked havoc on the fishing industry. Speaking out against this is not only important, it is the RIGHT thing to do whether it hurts your industry our not.

Far from being gone, the oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster appears to still be causing ecological damage in the Gulf of Mexico, according to new findings from University of South Florida scientists.

And scientists from the University of Georgia said the amount of oil that remains in the water could be 70 to 79 percent of the more than 4 million barrels of oil that escaped into the gulf.

Gulf oil spill still a threat to seafood, JAMA study indicates

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill still poses threats to human health and seafood safety, according to a study published Monday by the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Medical Association.

The report comes two days after President Obama and members of his family swam in the Gulf at Panama City Beach and ate fish caught there, and hours after this year's commercial shrimping season officially kicked off along the Louisiana coast.

Federal officials disputed the new report and said ongoing testing is aggressive and sufficient to protect public health.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First off, it is already news around the world that Obama;s swim did not take place in the gulf itself, but at a private beach (possibly even a pool) inside a sheltered bay. Based on that deception, one should not accept the origins of the fish taco at face value, and even if they found a few safe fish for the President to eat, that does not prove the toxicity or lack of same for fish elsewhere in the Gulf. It's pure PR and as I noted further down, Obama is apparently willing to let Americans eat poisoned food for the sake of a few more votes in November.

Toxic oil levels found in key Gulf breeding zone, scientists say

Scientists have found evidence that oil has become toxic to marine organisms in a section of the Gulf of Mexico that supports the spawning grounds of commercially important fish species.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama lied when he declared the Gulf "Open for Business". He staged a fake swim photo=op, not actually in the Gulf, to sell everyone on the idea that the gulf waters are safe to swim in and the food is safe to eat. He did that, not for the benefit of the people of the Gulf, but to help his huge campaign donor BP and to try to make the issue vanish from the public awareness in time for the November Elections.

In other words, Obama has no problems letting you eat poisoned food for the sake of a few more votes!

Monsters do not come any more obvious than this!

Reporting his findings to his supervisor, a private consulting company hired by BP, the reply, according to his logbook came back: "Told—no reporting of oil or tar balls anymore. Don't put on report. We're here for boom removal only," referring to the miles of yellow and orange containment barriers placed throughout the Gulf.

Scientists Say as Much as 79% of Oil Remains in Gulf of Mexico

A group of scientists says as much as 79 percent of BP Plc’s leaked oil remains in the Gulf of Mexico, challenging an Obama administration assessment that the crude is largely gone or rapidly disappearing.

Most of the oil that leaked from BP’s Macondo well from April 20 to July 15 is still beneath the water’s surface, five scientists including Samantha Joye, a professor of marine sciences at the University of Georgia in Athens, concluded in a memo made public yesterday. The researchers say they drew upon the U.S. government’s study while reaching different conclusions.

“One major misconception is that oil that has dissolved into water is gone and, therefore, harmless,” he said in a statement released yesterday. “The oil is still out there, and it will likely take years to completely degrade. We are still far from a complete understanding of what its impacts are.”

Everything Is A Lie: The Deliberate Intent To Deceive People Is At An All Time High

From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights and hijacked almost every form of media in the world. In the last frontiers for truth such as the internet, disinformation operations are in full swing to discredit and destroy any semblance of authentic and factual information available to the public.

How many more lies will people around the world accept as truth? Some say a global awakening is taking place, but at what cost? Will it take the destruction of most of the earth and its resources before people are enlightened?

The escalating media and political reports are so far fetched, cunning, and so beyond reality, it's as if each is trying to top the other with one sinister plot after the next. To demonstrate the outright lies by national governments and the media, let's take three examples from the last year alone, including the H1N1 scandal, airport body scanners and the BP oil disaster.

Et Tu Obami, Stabbing the Gulf Coast in the Back?

By crafting this illusion of safe beaches, safe food, safe air, the President, BP, the Coast Guard and all the other prostituted government agencies are going to sucker God knows how many unknowing American men, women and children into poisoning, sickening or perhaps even killing themselves through cancers or organ failure by swimming, eating and breathing toxins that the former are callously trying to cover up for various underhanded motives. This is yet another stab in the back by Orwellian Obama and his gang of coverup artists, the very people who are supposed to be protecting us, while a criminal corporation, you know who, clearly the Alpha Dog here, calls the main shots. Obama has reaally deepened his bad Karma here, tooling his own daughter in an attempt to get other parents to expose their daughters to the lurking hazards in the Gulf. Et tu, Obami?

USF scientists find oil spill damage to critical marine life

The oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster is still in the Gulf of Mexico and is causing ecological damage, according to new findings from the University of South Florida.

USF marine scientists conducting experiments in an area where they previously found clouds of oil have now discovered what appears to be oil in sediment of a vital underwater canyon and evidence that the oil has become toxic to critical marine organisms, the college reported Tuesday.

“The dispersant is moving the oil down out of the surface and into the deeper waters” a marine microbiologist at USF told CNN.

David Hollander, a chemical oceanographer at USF, talked to CNN about shining ultraviolet lights on the ocean floor, “All of a sudden, it turns out to be a constellation of little dots.”

Crude oil contains such powerful cancer-causing chemicals benzene, toluene, heavy metals and arsenic.

THE GULF IS STILL LEAKING - DID BP SWITCH THE WELL SEEN ON TV?

According to documents filed by British Petroleum with the US Minerals Management Service, there are two wells in the area of the spill. The first well, Well "A", was drilled early this year, ran into troubles, and was abandoned. Then Well B was drilled, which resulted in the explosion which destroyed the Deepwater Horizon. (

There is a typo on page 10 of the MMS PDF regarding the Y coordinate for well B. The Y coordinate is correctly printed on page 3 and page 11. You will see that the dyslexic person who typed out the report switched a '1' and a '4' on page 10. Please be aware of this because otherwise it will lead to a lot of confusion!!)

When University Scientists Found Underwater Oil Plumes, the Government Said Shut Up, Don't Tell Anyone ... and Then Tried to Discredit Them

NOAA has repeatedly denied the existence of underwater oil plumes (see this and this), calculated the spill to be only 5,000 barrels a day, and buried core data on the oil spill.

Now, university scientists have revealed the NOAA used strong-arm tactics to try to silence any information on underwater plumes.

NOAA Hoarding Key Data On Oil Spill Damage

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is hoarding vast amounts of raw data that independent marine researchers say could help both the public and scientists better understand the extent of the damage being caused by the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In most cases, NOAA insists on putting the data through a ponderous, many-weeks-long vetting process before making it public.

In other cases, NOAA actually intended to keep the data secret indefinitely. But officials told the Huffington Post on Tuesday that they have now decided to release it -- though when remains unclear.

BP, incidentally, gets to see all this data right away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NOAA, it needs to be remembered, is already mired in a Climategate scandal in which at least 5 satellites intended to prove global warming have been revealed as over-stating measured temperatures by as much as 10-15 degrees F.

Top Scientists vs. Feds: Up to 80 PERCENT of BP’s crude remains in Gulf — Submerged oil can’t evaporate

The major media outlets are reporting today that a group University of Georgia scientists, which includes Dr. Samantha Joye, says around 3/4 of BP’s oil is still in the Gulf of Mexico. Five days ago we reported on similar findings by a Florida university, “150 million gallons remain”; USF professor says 75 percent of oil has yet to be found. Thankfully, today’s news appears it will have a greater impact.

The Associated Press reports, “Five Georgia scientists who reviewed the data said Monday that instead of only 26 percent of the oil remaining, as a federal report said earlier this month, it’s actually closer to 80 percent.”

Oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill may have settled to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico further east than previously suspected and at levels toxic to marine life, researchers reported Monday.

Initial findings from a new survey of the Gulf conclude that dispersants may have sent the oil to the ocean floor, where it has turned up at the bottom of an undersea canyon within 40 miles of the Florida Panhandle. Plankton and other organisms showed a "strong toxic response" to the crude, according to researchers from the University of South Florida.

The samples were taken in water that is now open for shrimping, as well as from waters directly over Mississippi's oyster bed, that will likely open in September for fishing.

Commercial fisherman James "Catfish" Miller, took fishermen Danny Ross Jr. and Mark Stewart, along with scientist Dr. Ed Cake of Gulf Environmental Associates and others out and they found the fishing grounds to be contaminated with oil and dispersants.

Is Gulf Seafood Safe?

The FDA and NOAA say that Gulf seafood is fine. President Obama ate a fish taco yesterday made with Gulf fish.

So does that mean Gulf seafood is safe to eat?

I had hoped - for the safe of the Gulf fishermen and the entire Gulf economy - that the answer was yes. But after digging a bit, I'm not so sure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember, when Obama went to the G20, the USSS took along all the food and water the President and his family would consume during the three day trip. They took along the White House cooking staff. Does anyone think they were not as careful with the fish taco?

Obama's swim in the Gulf waters. Fact or Fiction?

The White house releases a photo. From the photo one cannot tell where Obama and daughter are actually swimming. There just together in some water, somewhere. But is it Gulf water? You know; water that is contaminated.

Strangely enough all the accompanying photographs or video scenes were taken at Alligator Point, Florida.

The highly anticipated dip was away from the media’s view. The Obamas swam in Saint Andrew Bay off of Alligator Point, technically not the Gulf, according to maps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, for all we know that photo of Obama and his daughter was taken last time they came out here to Oahu for a vacation!

At the very least we know the USSS would not allow Obama into water that had not been chemically tested to make sure it was safe.

BP Scum, “Dont Believe” tests that show oil, Major Coverup Continues

BP has even gone as far as DENY tests that show that oil IS surfacing near Orange Beach. This company is actively involved in one of the greatest cover ups of our time.
