One Year Later: Mystery Illnesses From Gulf Oil Spill

Well what do you know,  more downplaying, long delays, and official neglect! Someone’s not telling the truth!   As much as main stream media downplays it, as much as “official reports” ignores it, and as much as BP denies it, the phenomenon of strange unexplained illnesses among those who worked to clean up the Gulf Oil Spill and others in the Gulf Coast region.  Although some scientists claim that health in the Gulf of Mexico is “nearly back to normal,” doctors treating scores of patient complaints there disagree. Physicians treating people with “Gulf Oil Sickness” suspect that it has to do with the toxic dispersants BP used to break up oil slicks, in addition to the toxins in the oil itself.  Moreover, AFP reports that the symptom complaints are the same as reported after the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989, and the 2002 Prestige oil tanker spill on Spain’s coast.

 Doctors report that over 400 Louisiana citizens have oil spill-related health problems, such as: respiratory tract and/or ear infections, racing heartbeats, high blood pressure, dizziness, headaches, nausea, swollen sore throat, gastrointestinal problems, fluctuating blood sugar levels, poor eye sight, eye irritation, memory loss, and psychological stress.  When speaking about his patients, Mike Robichaux, a local doctor who is treating some 60 patients with this Gulf Oil malady, claims “Ninety percent of them are getting worse. Nobody has a clue as to what it is.”  He adds:  “I’m dealing with a wide array of people and the symptoms are almost identical in all of them.”  He insists that there is no question that these health problems have been caused by contact with the oil and dispersant.  He also complains that medical and health scientists ignore the problem.  Instead, he complains to Kim Hutcherson of CNN, media only covers Gulf Oil problems in animals:  “They’ll talk about the pelicans and shorebirds, the crawfish, the crabs, the shrimp and so forth … and there’s nothing on human impact.”
 
 The World Health Organization points out that governments seldom hold oil companies responsible for the sickness  their mishaps bring to human beings.  Because of long legal battles needed to prove guilt, governments usually pay for citizen illness themselves.  Michelle Jones of The Intel Hub writes particularly about the toxicity of a chemical known as Corexit, which BP used to disperse oil slicks, and which it claims is as safe as “Dawn dish soap.”  Most countries have banned the use or Corexit, and the EPA gives it the highest warning.  So the question is: why did EPA allow BP to use it in the Gulf?  What is the truth?

 The time is coming when all will see everlasting truth.  Satan is the god of this world.  Jesus Christ called him a murderer, a liar and the father of lies (John 8: 44).  Those following this god of money will not walk in truth. As believers dress youth in wholesale Christian kids t-shirts this summer, they must remember to walk in truth.
