    Airport Scanners and Cancer from X-Rays STAY AWAY

    The new airport scanners being used by the TSA are machines that use a type of X-Ray usually filtered out in medical machines because they are so readily absorbed by the body. The new machines have been rushed into use thru a recommendation of the former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. His company subsequently got a big contract with the largest manufacturer, Rapiscan. The machines are not as good as a metal detector when it comes to seeing a hidden gun but they were bought to see underwear bombs. one of the problems is that they may not do their job well and will irradiate an entire population certainly causing some cancers. Further the machines are extremely mechanically complex and any error or failure could lead to an unintended very high dose of radiation. Since the machines apparently do not check each dose nobody would know that the machines were giving each victim a carcinogenic dose. If you burn easily in the sun or are prone to cancer or have skin cancer in your family you might be well advised to not only get a pat down instead, but avoid the area within 2 yards of the machine. That’s because radiation is being scattered out of the machine and may be leaking from behind it, unknown to the TSA agent. The TSA agent is also in danger of overexposure and the effect of X-Ray exposure is cumulative, so each dose gets a person closer to cancer and other illnesses which may not show up for many years. Almost no research or testing has been done, contrary to the statements of Janet Napolitano. The few scientific peer review research papers that have been written make a case for the exposure being higher than stated. They also predict that the X-raying of an entire population will eventually precipitate some fatalities. At our site we are uploading, and will have links to more information about the machines and real research papers from qualified scientists.




    BP and MMS Secretly Rehearse Deep Water Oil Spill in 2000 in Norway

    This video exposes a confidential report on a secret experiment called “DEEP SPILL” carried out by the US government and a group of oil companies including BP in the year 2000. One of the conclusions was that the most toxic part of the oil would be caught in the water unable to be recovered. Was it a surprise that most of the oil from the BP well stayed in the Gulf of Mexico, at depth, in clouds of small particles? It may have been to us but it shouldn’t have been to BP or MMS (the government agency whose job it is to regulate deep water drilling). It also should have come as no surprise to NOAA (the government agency that regulates anything in the sea around the U.S.) All of those institutions did deny the first reports of the clouds when they were found by the Pelican research vessel and the University of Missisippi’s Dr. Ray Highsmith and his crew. But they must have known because MMS and the oil companies paid for, and conducted an experiment off the coast of Norway in 2000 to see what would happen in a deepwater oil well blowout. Remember all that “this is a new problem” you heard on television? Well the study showed that the oil would not all rise to the surface to be collected but would tend to form cloud layers of neutrally buoyant particles that might be the most toxic part of the oil.

    Here’s a direct quote from the report:

    “This is important information, because the water-soluble compounds are generally the most toxic ones when exposed to marine biota. The results from these measurements show that the rising of the oil through the water column represents a kind of a “stripping” process of some of the most toxic compounds in the oil. The end result is therefore that a portion of the most toxic compounds is left in the water column.”
