“Octane in your blood”: Humans on Gulf Coast show “dangerous levels of toxic exposure”, Hexane is “way high” — Treatment for “ORGAN DAMAGE” recommended (LAB REPORT)


In today's article,  Human Blood Tests Show Dangerous Levels of Toxic Exposure, filmmaker Jerry Cope revealed, "For the first time blood tests on sickened humans have shown signs of exposure to high levels of toxic chemicals related to crude oil and dispersants. Some of the individuals tested have not been on the beaches, were not involved in any cleanup operations or in the Gulf water -- they simply live along the Gulf Coast."

Cope is one of those sickened humans.

He wrote that the problems began within the first few days of his teams mid-July arrival in the Gulf: "[While] touring the lagoons around Orange Beach, Alabama, we all had extreme headaches... That evening I developed a gagging, coughing reflex that was so intense and persistent it was impossible to speak to my daughter on the phone. The symptoms typical for high levels of chemical exposure such as burning, itching eyes, constantly runny nose, chronic coughing, burning sore throat, chest congestion, and lethargy progressively intensified. Over the next several weeks these symptoms continued to worsen until I developed chemically-induced pneumonitis."

Cope credits several of the groups doing tremendous work along the Gulf Coast for facilitating the tests, "The musical activists Sassafrass and the tireless efforts of Michelle Nix allowed myself and several local residents to have blood drawn and tested by Metametrix for chemical exposure. Project Gulf Impact and the Coastal Heritage Society have also contributed greatly to air and water testing in the Gulf region affected by the spill. Project Gulf Impact has set up a dedicated medical help phone line at 504-814-0283."

After going over the results with Metametrix, Cope sat down with Dr. Michael R. Harbut, MD, MPH, director of the Environmental Cancer Program at the Karmanos Cancer Institute and former chairman of the Occupational and Environmental medicine section of the American College of Chest Physicians, to discuss the findings:

COPE: I have been working mainly in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area of Alabama, and that's where I got sick. ...

HARBUT: [Y]ou had no Benzene but a lot of Hexane and a couple of Hexane metabolites... Hexane causes what is called a dying back neuropathy, meaning the nerve cells in the arms and legs die back from the distal tips to the proximal end... It shows that you have Hexane and Hexane metabolites and also Octane in your blood, then...to go about treating you, which is usually... treating the end organ damage. End organ damage meaning we know if you inhale this stuff, if you have it in your system, it will damage your nerves... you look for end organ damage rather than the presence of a solvent because the solvent could have evaporated after it has already whacked the brain or whacked the liver.

COPE: I spoke to the founder of Metametrix... He indicated that the Benzene would not show up for very long once you were exposed but that the other compounds, the Ethylbenzene, m. p.-Xylene, the Hexane, which was way high, the Methylpentanes and the Isooctane, all of those things indicated to him that we were exposed to significant amounts of Benzene.

HARBUT: That's what I would think, too.

  • There is going to be a methane explosion and a tidal wave. See prophecies.org Book 12 Chapter 74

  • Mr. Anonymous

    This is hideous!

  • It is not hideous at all, it is evil, pure evil, they are poisoning the population on purpose. Obama is their 'point man' he is allowing it!
    Read the warnings about him, prophecies.org

    Ingenious! They have finally figured out a way to take out a whole lot of people and blame someone else, BP! Wait until the first "oilcane" blows in, then people [and everything else] will be covered with deadly toxins. Then you will see illness on a grand scale. All brought to you courtesy of your elected officials. Due to 'living up' to the expectations of the elite psychopaths, I have a gut feeling that Obama will be the last president of the US. He has done such a great job in the Gulf and other areas of concern that he should be allowed his own regime, right? Haven't any of you figured out why the troops are "all of a sudden" being brought back home? Are you kidding me? This once great nation is on it's knees, ready to topple over at any given moment. There will be riots soon [cue the troops] when food/petrol is so costly the average American will be FORCED into poverty. My prediction is that you will see things such as petrol start to rise[$5-6] in the fall/early winter. Food prices will soar within 6 months, sooner with crop failures locally due to Corexit rains. Ultimately, the GOM incident will be the catalyst that pushed us into insolvency.

    Now is the time that we worry much because the health of the people is affected. It is no longer an issue set aside. Toxicity on one's blood stream will give bigger problems.

  • Joni marie

    Chemically induced pneumonitis means infection of the lungs caused by chemicals. This is man-made in nature, cause of what humans breathe in air.

    Sadly, this will probably end in organ failure as toxicity in the blood increases. This is scary and this is sad.

  • Joni marie

    President Obama should have counter measures on the cause and effect of the problems in the gulf. Health problems are starting to rise and if we prolong taking this seriously, then things might be too late for us in the end.

  • Joni marie

    It's better that we deal at this fast. No, this is not exaggeration..this is being cautious.

  • Joni marie

    Whether chemicals are less dangerous or not..the point of it should be there because sooner or later it will cause us problems with or health. Yes it, will no matter how much we ignore it. Now its slowly showing, all we need are solutions to stop it.
