BP says over 15% of oil cleanup workers show high levels of COREXIT dispersant toxin; Figure likely much higher

New BP Data Show 20% of Gulf Spill Responders Exposed to Chemical That Sickened Valdez Workers, New York Times, July 9, 2010:

In an under-the-radar release of new test results for its Gulf of Mexico oil spill workers, BP PLC is reporting potentially hazardous exposures… among more than 20 percent of offshore responders.

SNIP

2-butoxyethanol was detected at levels up to 10 parts per million (ppm) in more than 20 percent of offshore responders and 15 percent of those near shore.

The NIOSH standard for 2-butoxyethanol, which lacks the force of law but is considered more health-protective than the higher OSHA limit, is 5 ppm. Some public-health advocates pointed out that BP references the NIOSH ceiling of each chemical it tested for except 2-butoxyethanol, an ingredient in the Corexit 9527 dispersant…

Natural Resources Defense Council Senior Scientist Gina Solomon described BP’s continued offshore 2-butoxyethanol detection during the month of June as “worrisome.”

“It suggests to me that there is still, clearly, a serious air-quality concern. … [Gulf] air quality, if anything, seems to be deteriorating,” Solomon said.

Next week, BP will start charging workers found to be harboring 2-butoxyethanol in their bodies.

"This substance is a patented property of BP," A BP spokesperson will claim. "Employees who insist on keeping it in their bodies will be charged."

BP PLC is reporting potentially hazardous exposures to a now-discontinued dispersant chemical"

I thought BP was still using Corexit to this day? Have they stopped?

This is a sick joke that did make me laugh because it is the
absolute truth......

just look at Monsanto....their seeds blow in the wind and INFECT neighboring farms and they take people to court and sue them for theft.

This is an insane sick world we live in now.....twisted and evil.

Those in control are ripe with obsession of their own righteousness and possession by the hounds of hell.

What chance do we have of survival?

We might as well go out laughing at THEM

but ultimately as the game plan indicates we are "being taken out".

Oh and that's another one! That anyone could be so incredibly dense as to believe the lies these bastards are spewing about global warming..The entire flippin solar system is heating up and experiencing other effects due to the interaction of our heliosphere with an increasingly dense area of a plasma belt that we are traveling through. And the bastards are well aware of it!

It should. It's the same tactics used by evil giant Monsanto against independent farmers that have crops with some of their "patented" seeds, since the wind took them and blew them onto their property since they refuse to buy Monsanto....Monsanto then took the farmers to court, some for many years, and ended up bankrupting most of the farmers.

Monsanto/Halliburton/Dow....the giants of poisoning humans.

So what percentage does one need to cause hemorrhage on even a small scale?

And does any exposure lead to eventual systemic hemorrhage?
