BP’s catastrophic oil spill sprayed and pumped into the Gulf nearly two million gallons of dispersant. Yummy!

    Father of Lies:
    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and FDA officials repeatedly denied that the dispersant used “does not bioaccumulate” in seafood and therefore is nontoxic to humans. To claim that these chemicals are a common household product gives a false sense of security.

    VS EPA

    Moderate respiratory exposure to 2-butoxyethanol often results in irritation of mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and throat.

    Corexit 9527, considered by the EPA to be an ***acute health hazard***, is stated by its ***manufacturer*** to be potentially harmful to red blood cells, the kidneys and the liver, and may irritate eyes and skin.[14][23]

    The chemical 2-butoxyethanol, found in Corexit 9527, was identified as having caused ***lasting health problems*** in workers involved in the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.[24]

    According to the Alaska Community Action on Toxics, the use of Corexit during the Exxon Valdez oil spill caused people “respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders”.[16]

    Like 9527, 9500 can cause hemolysis (rupture of blood cells) and may also cause internal bleeding.[4]


It's only September but ....
