Toxic Waste Tuesday

Poisoning the World one body at a time.

Poisoning the World one body at a time.

What do you, arctic polar bears, and 98% of the U.S. population have in common? You all have the highly toxic man-made chemical, C-8, in your blood.

C-8 is a cancer-causing chemical that DuPont and a handful of other corporations used to make non-stick, stain/fire proof, “high performance” products such as Teflon. It has been proven that C-8 causes deadly and debilitating human diseases like testicular cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid disease, and ulcerative colitis.

C-8 lasts so long in the environment that any duration provided by experts on biodegradation is a mere guess, and even then, their very best guess says that the half-life of C-8 is a million years.Why does C-8 last so long once it is discarded into the environment? Because it’s a man-made chemical that does not bind to other natural occurring chemicals and it moves in, and is transported by water very easily. The chemical bonds that hold C-8 together are nearly impossible to break, unless heated to VERY high temperatures. It’s tough and rugged. What made it a good surfactant for DuPont is what makes it so very dangerous to humans and animals; it simply will not break down.

What does this mean? This means that the very first molecule of C-8 ever made in a lab, unless disposed of properly, still exists today. This means that every molecule of C-8 that DuPont dumped into the ocean, that leached out of landfills, that was flushed into the Ohio River, that was released into the air over Parkersburg, West Virginia still exists today.

    The squirts stopped after the starvation break, weight dropped 20 lbs since Oct.
    Rheumatologist tomorrow, might be good or bad, he is new to me and might be a pill pusher, not a problem solver.

      I’m doing better after a colonoscopy removed some tissue from my lower GI tract. Fecal difficulties gone 2 weeks later.

      I guess you are about the right age for your first.

        I have had two already, one to remove a 30mm polyp (benign) and another routine one 8 years ago. First one done without sedation, ughh!

      Glad you’re going to finally see a doctor! It doesn’t seem your own doctoring is helping you very much.

      All doctors today are pill pushers. They prescribe one for every condition, and most of them don’t talk diet with their patients. I really shouldn’t say that, I have no idea what doctors talk about to their patients.

      I’ll be hoping you get some relief after tomorrow’s appointment. It’s painful, hearing how much pain you’re in. 😦 You and my Bob. *sigh* Oh, AND Doc.

    Down the College Hill Climb to the Greenway and thence to the bank downtown to get the business done. As I went one block to far it took 29 minutes on the sticks. Noticeable right foot also slowed me.

    Thence maybe 3 minutes to Swilly’s for black bean chili and a fish taco.

    More weather here. High, HIGH winds all damn night and day. Not a whole lot of snow the wind loves to toss it around. I shoveled off the back deck this morning, the walk to the garage and a path around the garage to walk quincy on, and a path to my bird feeders. Birds were elated to see me top off a couple of their feeders.

    Holy Watergate! Somebody broke into an office up in Flint, a place where records of the water problem are kept. That’s all I know at this point. However, who would want to get those records except Gov Snyder, who caused the poisoning of an entire city. Would love to see him marched out of here in cuffs, but THAT will never happen.

    Supposed to start raining soon, all night long. That’ll eat the remaining snow.

    I went for a couple short motorcycle rides, gassed them up with fresh gas, this Ethanol-gas goes to shyt in no time and starts gumming things up. 😦

    Bones felt weak, right leg wouldn’t swing over the DR seat, too tall, used the left instead.

    Felt chilly but a good chilly to zip around the freeway a bit. 🙂

      Find the right set of exercises. Do those.

      I can’t do pushups because of my right shoulder. But I can stick walk, even with a swollen right foot. (Hopefully the larger boots coming soon will remedy that.)
