GULF OIL DISPERSANT COREXIT IS 11 TIMES MORE LETHAL THAN OIL

Here is what was discovered regarding COREXIT during and after the Exxon Valdez clean-up:

2-butoxyethanol (an ingredient of COREXIT) is a paint solvent, dry cleaning solvent, also used in dissolving plastics.

Corexit causes hemolytic anemia (low Red Blood Counts) because the body prematurely destroys its own red blood cells and worse. Workers exposed to Corexit feel tired all the time from the blood damage (anemic). Their children are at greater risk for brain tumors and leukemia from over exposure to this solvent.

38% of COREXIT 9527 is made up of this toxic solvent that dissolves plastic.

Here is a link for the Exxon Valdez clean-up workers who have hundreds of further links exposing what COREXIT does. Some of the comments from clean-up workers are heart wrenching as they were written while they were dying from the chemical dispersant effects.

This is what all the Gulf fishermen who have been conned into clean-up can expect. Even worse, this is what all those who live along the Gulf coast can expect... and I'm one of them.

Over ONE MILLION GALLONS of COREXIT has been used in the Gulf already.

COREXIT is considered officially hazardous as defined in the US Federal Code of Regulations at 29 CFR 1910.1200

[link to edocket.access.gpo.gov]

A 1993 report from Exxon-Mobil Chemicals regarding COREXIT:

Page 4 states that exposure causes "hemolytic anemia and kidney damage evidenced by paleness and red coloration of urine"

On page 2, it states that if COREXIT is spilled "EVACUATE AREA".

Page 3 states "Stability condition to avoid: HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION".

This is a PDF Adobe file link to the 1993 Exxon disclosure report for the U.S. Department of Defense: [link to www.valdezlink.com]

What are the symptoms of hemolytic anemia?

The following are the most common symptoms of hemolytic anemia. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

* abnormal paleness or lack of color of the skin
* jaundice, or yellowing of the skin, eyes, and mouth
* dark color to urine
* fever
* weakness
* dizziness
* confusion
* intolerance to physical activity
* enlargement of the spleen and liver
* increased heart rate (tachycardia)
* heart murmur

If you want to know what 38% of COREXIT is and the reason it has a Class 3 (Serious) Health Classification and Class 2 (Moderate) Flammability Classification, read this NJ Hazardous Substance Fact Sheet (Adobe PDF format): [link to nj.gov]

What happens if COREXIT is ignited? And what is happening now with all the oil/Corexit they are burning? And what of the new announcement from BP (June 10) that they are preparing to use a device called an EverGreen Burner [the name implies a lie in itself] that turns a flow of oil and gas into a vapor that is pushed out its 12 nozzles and burned?

Well, here's what happens when COREXIT is burned as BP is now going to do at a much larger scale...

According to the same above link, "POISONOUS GASES ARE PRODUCED IN FIRE".

The Gulf of Mexico is heating up this time of year. According to the proven reports from the Alaska Valdez oil spill (which was nothing compared to the Gulf oil volcano), COREXIT become a more dangerous airborne toxin at 90 degrees Fahrenheit and above:

It is ironic to note that the MSDS for both Inipol EAP22 and Corexit 9527 warn to "keep product out of sewers and watercourses" or "prevent liquid from entering sewers, watercourses, or low areas," respectively.

The MSDS for the Exxon product Corexit 9527 lists similar potential health effects of exposure including irritation to the eye, skin, and respiratory tract. Low order toxicity may result from skin contact as compound "may be absorbed through skin to produce hemolytic anemia and kidney damage evidenced by paleness and possibly red coloration of the urine." Further, "vapors and/or aerosols, which may be formed at elevated temperatures may cause systemic effects." (Inipol was heated to a target temperature of 90ºF before application.) Chronic effects of overexposure by inhalation or dermal contact may result in damage to the blood and kidneys. Source: [link to www.valdezhousing.com]



Corexit is lethal in as little as 2.6 parts per million where oil is lethal in 11 parts per million meaning that Corexit is over 4 times more toxic than oil.

Furthermore, scientific studies show that oil dispersed with Corexit is 11 times more lethal than oil alone. Source: [link to scienceblogs.com]

MSDS Sheet for COREXIT 9527: [link to www.rikiott.com]

This says that COREXIT is anywhere from 30 to 60% 2-Butoxyethanol! So the mixture being used in the Gulf right now may be as high as 60% instead of 38% like the older Exxon 1991 mixture of COREXIT.

Here's what their own report states:

2. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Our hazard evaluation has identified the following chemical substance(s) as hazardous. Consult Section 15 for the nature of the hazard(s).
Hazardous Substance(s)
2-Butoxyethanol 30.0 - 60.0 % (w/w)

SECTION 313 - LIST OF TOXIC CHEMICALS (40 CFR 372) :
This product contains the following substance(s), (with CAS # and % range) which appear(s) on the List of Toxic Chemicals Hazardous Substance(s)
Glycol Ethers 30 - 60 % (w/w)


[ 2-Butoxyethanol is a Glycol Ether ]

Reproductive Hazard
2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the developing fetus.
There is limited evidence that 2-Butoxy Ethanol may
damage the male reproductive system (including decreasing
the sperm count) in animals and may affect female fertility in
animals.

This is no different than an enemy chemical or biological attack. It is just cleverly veiled and cloaked in such a way that it is hidden in plain sight.

I would love to comment but I just figured out that this is a government/military website ... possibly owned and operated by naval intelligence which runs the sorcha faal website whatdoesitmean.com. I will not comment and I take back everything I have ever posted. I was just kidding.

I checked out the IP of this site.

Sitting on a military IP on a military network.. the registration of the domain name is even blocked by network solutions which they only do for government websites also.

Corexit is just a New Orleans seafood seasoning. That stuff causes no harm, but flavorful goodness.
