While Dr. Soto and Wilma Subra of Subra Company are finding shocking levels of poisons in each individual they test, Gregg Hall, who tested with VOC levels "off the chart" and lost feeling in his feet, recovered those feelings only one month after leaving the Gulf Coast. As long as the masses continue to breathe the gulf air, drink the water and eat the food there, their health will continue to deteriorate.
Dr. Soto's and Mr. Jeff Rense's statements made during the Rense Radio Network interview that became the most popular and life-saving radio program about the Gulf operation, were reiterated in an Al Jazeera report on January 5: "It's criminal for the government to tell people to eat the contaminated seafood, and that it's alright for people go to our toxic beaches and swim in the contaminated water." (Emphasis added) (Watch the Rense-Soto video embedded below or here.)
The deadly crime is causing human suffering unlike anything Americans have ever experienced, well-hidden by a complicit mainstream media, just as during and after 911 and Hurricane Katrina. This crime has been perpetrated by more than one individual. That makes it, by definition, a conspiracy, a legal term that media has cleverly led people to shun to help cover-up crimes through a psychological operation, including crimes against humanity, as the Gulf Operation is. It is Gulf Region genocide.
Throughout human history, intentional application of poison has been used to assassinate, murder, suicide, and execute. (Wikipedia) It is not as though a large body of scientific evidence proving crude oil and Corexit are toxic and kill humans simply does not exist and this proof is unknown to heads of the petrochemical and military bodies.
Today, in every one of the patients he is testing" according to Al Jazeera. (Emphasis added)
"I'm regularly finding between five and seven VOCs in my patients," he said, speaking about patients not directly involved in oil clean-up and not living right on the coast.
"These are clearly related to the oil disaster," Dr. Soto said.
Dr. Subra reports that whole blood samples were collected December 16, 2010, from four males, age 3, 36, 42 and 43, and one female, age 38: a diver who had come in contact with the Gulf operation chemicals, coastal communities and wetlands visitors documenting impacts of the crime, and individuals exposed along beaches.
Many chemicals present in the oil and dispersants are known causes of:
"headaches, nausea, vomiting, kidney damage, altered renal functions, irritation of the digestive tract, lung damage, burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, pulmonary edema, cancer, lack of muscle coordination, dizziness, confusion, irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat, difficulty breathing, delayed reaction time, memory difficulties, stomach discomfort, liver and kidney damage, unconsciousness, tiredness/lethargy, irritation of the upper respiratory tract, and hematological disorders."
These are the precise symptoms Gulf Coast residents are increasingly reporting.
Subra's most recent blood samples were tested and analyzed for Volatile Solvents by Method 0762, Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry, by Metametrix Clinical Laboratory in Duluth, Georgia," states the report. Poisons detected in the samples include:
All five individuals tested had Ethylbenzene in their blood in excess of the NHANES 95th Percentile. All five individuals had Hexane, 2-Methylpentane, 3-Methylpentane, and isooctane in their blood. Four of the five had m,p-Xylene in their blood in excess of the NHANES 95th Percentile.
The diver had the highest concentration of Ethylbenzene, m,p-Xylene and Isooctane in his blood. The 3 year old male and 36 year old male had the highest concentrations of Hexane, 2-Methylpentane and 3-Methylpentane.
Ethylbenzene, m,p-Xylene and Hexane correlate to volatile organic chemicals in BP Crude Oil. Blood of each of the five males had chemicals corresponding to chemicals in the BP Crude Oil.
Ethylbenzene: Ethylbenzene, a form of benzene present in the body when it begins to break down, was detected in all five blood samples in excess of the NHANES 95th Percentile value. The male diver had the highest concentration at 0.63 ppb, that is 5.7 times the 95th Percentile NHANES value. The male diver also had highest value of Ethylbenzene when compared to the other 9 individuals whose blood had been previously tested (1.3 times the highest previous value). Subras previous samplings of blood for volatile solvents were performed on residents exposed along the coast and BP cleanup workers.
The second highest concentration of Ethylbenzene was 3.3 times the 95th Percentile and occurred in the 3 year old male. The third highest concentration of Ethylbenzene was 2.8 times the 95th Percentile and occurred in the 38 year old female.
m,p-Xylene: m,p-Xylene was detected in four of the five blood samples in excess of the NHANES 95th Percentile value. The male diver had the highest at 1.93 ppb - that is 5.68 times the 95th Percentile NHANES value. The male diver also had highest value of m,p-Xylene when compared to the other 9 individuals whose blood had been previously tested (1.5 times the highest previous value). The 36-year old male did not have detectable levels of m,p-Xylene.
Hexane: Hexane was in all five blood samples with highest concentration in the 3-year old and 36-year old males, in the 40th Percentile. Hexane values detected in the five blood samples were in the same range as the previous 9 blood samples.
2-Methylpentane: 2-Methylpentane concentrations were highest in the 3-year old and 36-year old with values in the 82nd Percentile. The 2-Methylpentane values were in the same range as the previous nine blood samples analyzed.
3-Methylpentane: 3-Methylpentane concentrations were highest in the 36-year old male whose value was in the 2nd Percentile.
Isooctane: The highest concentration of Isooctane occurred in the male diver and was in the 3rd Percentile. The Isooctane values were in the same range as previous blood samples examined.
Poor treatment blamed on inadequate training
Al Jazeera reports that inadequate training is blamed for the poor treatment of Gulf Coast patients.
"Dr. Mary Jo Ghory a general and pediatric surgeon, and a member of the American College of Surgeons, told Al Jazeera she believes most doctors along the Gulf Coast are unlikely to connect the illnesses they treat to BP’s chemicals, because of a lack of adequate training."
"Toxicology is not usually a course, and there is not much discussion of the toxic effects of chemical exposure," Dr. Ghory said. "When confronted with an array of confusing and widely varying symptoms related to chemical exposure, it is difficult for each individual physician to sort things out, especially without a definite profile of what to expect."
Dr. Soto reported to Al Jazeera his "very unique - but isolated - position," being one of the only medical doctors in the region who is treating people according to having been poisoned. He is using an evidence-based treatment with compassion to boot according to his interview by Mr. Jeff Rense and this writer's sources.
Dr. Soto is testing and then diagnosing and treating based on the evidence of tests, unlike the masses who are mistreated, as Gulf former clean-up worker, Jennifer Rexford is exposing. Because few doctors are testing Gulf illnesses, their diagnoses are invalid, and so, therefore, are their treatments.
Both Dr. Ghory and Dr. Soto report believing the poor treatment of Gulf victims is largely due to lack of training. Some patients, however, question this reason, such as Jennifer Rexford. (See: Inhumanely treated Gulf workers vow no more silence, Dupré, Examiner, Jan. 6, 2011)
Rexford and her workmates' health rights have been violated so severely since beginning their oil clean-up work, one has breast cancer, another has a new heart condition, others have ongoing large, painful sores erupting and what feels like never-ending flu.
None have been tested, diagnosed or treated professionally. Medical negligence is the term being used in their circle.
Numerous Gulf Coast residents are being led to undergo chemotherapy for their newly developed conditions arisen since the oil and Corexit operation began late May 2010. Many have reported to this writer that medical staff instill fear in them, so they lose courage to seek and consider alternatives to having more dangerous chemicals passed through their bodies with chemotherapy.
What to do if rights are violated at hospitals?
In a discussion with this writer on Monday, "Pcola" Gregg Hall reported that he is now recovering in Idaho, not by medical treatment, but by drinking non-polluted water and breathing relatively clean mountain air. Hall reported that he had just regained feeling in his feet three days earlier.
Hall had been a leader among Gulf Coast residents, helping them recognize that they are, as Al Jazeera reports, "victims of an environmental catastrophe that has received inadequate response from the federal government," medical mistreatment included.
Patricia Springstead, RN and barefoot doctor, recommends specific actions for individuals violated through medical mistreatment. Since single women are still not respected equally as men, it is imperative that women be accompanied by a male. He can also witness the event.
Although Springstead stands by intensive detoxing for recovery, she recommends that violated patients, such as those learning they have had false statements made about them and their condition written in their medical reports, return to the hospital responsible for mistreatment and say:
1. "My Rights as a patient were violated and would like to file a complaint on a humanatarian basis."
2. "I ask that the physician amend my chart because he lied and I want an investigation into this."
And if nothing is done, Springstead says that "the one that will really get them is:
3. "I am going to file a fraud Health Care Violation report." (See: 'Report Fraud' at http://www.fdhc.state.fl.us/)
"That my dear, scares.... any hospital."
Many agree that medicos need to be scared, shocked and awed just as Gulf Coast people are when first learning how dangerously high the level of poisons are in their systems.
Many also agree with Dr. Soto's relocate, detox or die advice: Surviving the newly surging Gulf cancers caused by oil and dispersants "depends strictly on how the body can get rid of it," not medical or hospital "treatment."
