    My daughter, who is a product of me working in a refinery when I got pregnant, is now 26 and has had multiple surgeries. When spill happened, we called and e-mailed all kinds of people down there, especially for pregnant women to stay away from the oil. We don't know if the message got out. This should have never happened! Day 2, I told people to FSPO tankers in now to control the spill. Where were they? The oil companies called them to pory and ordered them emptied and eady to go! Where were they?
    Where was the protective gear, fresh air, for the clean up crews? Where? Now the south is going to have major medical problems like they have NEVER seen, especially in new borns. Why did they let it get this far? The almighty BUCK!

  • Watchout for the vultures.

    Please have an additional blood test done through a private company who will not have an interest in the outcome -- one way or the other.

    You could also have an extra vial of blood drawn to have in your possession. Freeze the specimen immediately when you return home from your doctor's appointment, or private laboratory. It may come in handy later. BP is gonna deny, deny, and deny.

    If BP will tell workers to bury the oil, they'll pay a technician to contaminate your specimens, by adding other chemicals to the specimen in order to extract the toxins [VOC's & PAH], leaving what looks and tests like a normal specimen.

    Just like in the aftermath of The Twin Towers clean-up, they needed people to clean the wreckage regardless of Cost of Human Sacrifice ! The Alaskan Oil spill of the Valdez would be another. The idea that some think there are those that are expendable are repulsive ! I would include wars that were False Flags such as V.N. to expand the decisions of these people who decide others fates with misinformation to The People !
