THE EPA IS HIDING PROOF THAT A WIDELY USED CHEMICAL CAUSES LEUKEMIA: REPORT | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


THE EPA IS HIDING PROOF THAT A WIDELY USED CHEMICAL CAUSES LEUKEMIA: REPORT

During a Senate hearing in late January, Ed Markey asked then-EPA director Scott Pruitt about a little rumor that he’d overheard. “It’s my understanding,” the Massachusetts senator said, “that the EPA has finalized its conclusion that formaldehyde causes leukemia and other cancers and that [the] completed new assessment is ready to be released for public review, but is being held up.”

“You know, my understanding is similar to yours,” Pruitt replied.

Formaldehyde is one of the most ubiquitous industrial chemicals in the United States. It’s in much of the wooden furniture that Americans sit in, the body wash they clean themselves with — and, for those who live in the vicinity of a major refinery, the air that they breathe. And here, the director of the agency responsible for protecting the American people from toxic chemicals was saying, under oath, that he was vaguely aware of a report linking formaldehyde to a variety of terminal illnesses.

If that report were released — and its findings independently verified by the National Academies of Sciences — then the EPA would strengthen restrictions on the chemical’s use, while cancer patients could draw on the findings in class-action lawsuits. The effect of all this would be to force industry to reduce its reliance on formaldehyde — and thus, to reduce the number of Americans who suffer from the ravages of Leukemia, nose and throat cancer, and a variety of less severe respiratory ailments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; formaldehyde is one of the major components of embalming fluid.

And to the gals out there who read this site; formaldehyde precursors are still allowed by this government in scented soaps, and lower end cosmetics.

One of the other illnesses it can cause, other than cancer, are debilitating joint pains. And if your doctor cannot find any digital images indicating actual joint damage, insist that they do a chemical toxicity test for it.

I know; I had this going on with me for half a decade, to the point where I could no longer play either my accoustic piano or my Celtic harp.

When my orthopedist at my HMO told me that he could see nothing on the exrays indicating physical damage, and dismissed me with yet another round of pain meds, I went home to Mike in tears, and asked him when I had the time to be a hypochondriac. Well, Mike did about 40 minutes' worth of research on the net, and found the link between formaldehyde precursors and joint pain. We did a "chemicalectomy" of everything in our home containing the chemical, and by the next morning, I could walk without pain for the first time in 5 years.

Please remember that some doctors take compensation by the pharmaceutical houses for prescribing various meds, including pain meds, and there are places on line where you can discover if your doctor is one of them. At the time, two of the orthopedists I was seeing, were compensated for prescribing a specific pain med for me, which hadn't yet gone generic, so they were in no fat hurry to find the real cause of my pain.

Several months later, they were entirely gone from the roster of my HMO, with no explanation. I have to wonder if upper management got wind of this, and decided, if patients found out about the compensation, but nothing was being done to really address the causes of their pain, they would have changed HMOs.
