BP Oil Uses CARCINOGENETIC Oil Dispersant!
BP OIL USES CARCINOGENETIC DISPERGENT
Some of the worst fears about the dispersant BP is using in the Gulf Spill appear to be justified. BP Oil is using a carcinogentic (cancer causing) dispergent. It is dangerous and non- biodegradeable. Symptoms Include: Nausea, vomiting, liver damage and dizziness. Clean-up workers are experiencing these symptoms. The ingredients are:
· 2-Butoxy Ethanol can affect you by ingestion and may be absorbed through the skin.
· 2-Butoxy Ethanol should be handled as a CARCINOGEN--WITH EXTREME CAUTION.
· Contact can irritate the skin and eyes with possible eye damage.
· Inhaling 2-Butoxy Ethanol can irritate the nose and throat.
· 2-Butoxy Ethanol can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.
· Exposure can cause headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, and passing out.
· 2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the liver and kidneys.
Devastation has unknown unintended consequences. An example is , a boat owner drove to his boat as usual. As the deckhands prepared for the day's work, Kruse, as the captain, was supposed to turn on the generator. But after a few minutes, the crew members said, they didn't hear anything and went looking for him. A deckhand found him in the wheelhouse, shot in the head.
This is just one incident. sign of the BP spill's hidden psychological toll on the Gulf Coast, an awful feeling of helplessness that descends on people used to hard work and independence.
Around the gulf, social service providers are dealing with a rising tide of mental health crises.
Oxygen depletions have not reached a critical level yet, but the oil is still spilling into the Gulf, now at a rate of as much as 60,000 barrels a day, according to U.S. government estimates. There may be huge areas of dead, dying sea life.
