Many citizens were exposed to the dust of the WTC. No telling how far the toxins traveled.
On August 8, 2006 the New York Daily News reported: "We ought to provide testing for those who selflessly gave of themselves when New York and America needed them," added Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
The News called for lung screening as part of a campaign to help 12,000 ailing Ground Zero workers who have been stiffed by the city and have had to fight for disability pensions and medical care.
Mayor Bloomberg has promised to look into the reports but has refused to acknowledge that thousands of first responders were sickened - and at least four were killed - by toxins in The Pit.”
NOT JUST THE 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS WERE EXPOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While I am eternally grateful that the issue of World Trade Center Illness is finally getting some attention, the conversation is still in a state of stupid.
So, here’s the message again.
The toxic dust did not remain in the site of the WTC, nor did it remain in lower Manhattan.
At least the people in the area are in danger of getting squamous cell cancer which comes from exposure to toxic chemicals. That’s what happened on 9/11. People were exposed to large quantities of toxic material.
Rather than evacuating the city when the buildings were hit, the city was put on lock down, so the people ate, drank and breathed the toxic dust.
All folks exposed need to have free access to testing and treatment paid for by the United States government, members of which are responsible for the events of 9/11...especially the altered EPA report. We must stop pretending not to know the problem’s scope.
Of course a hemp tax of 20% would more than pay for the program. Medical hemp has a radical impact on stress, which is a factor in cancer.
WE NEED ACCESS TO THE ORIGINAL EPA REPORT THAT WAS ALTERED BY THE WHITE HOUSE SO WE CAN KNOW WHAT THE POPULATION WAS EXPOSED TO AND RECOMMEND HEALING STRATEGIES.
For example, the work of Niro Markoff, who healed herself of HIV/ARC 20 years ago, has excellent lessons on the subject of connecting with one's Healer Within. Her book WHY I SURVIVE AIDS is posted on line for free and available at amazon.com. Her next book should be released shortly.
Dr. Bernie Siegel was a cancer surgeon for over 20 years at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He is the author of LOVE, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES and PEACE. LOVE AND HEALING. Hay House’s founder, Louise Hay, author of YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE is also a long term cancer remission victor. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dwyer, Catherine Ponder, Mary Baker Eddie and others should be considered. Traditional medicine is not ready for this crisis.
I left New York in ’98 because the leadership was clearly stuck in stupid to the point of evil. That the mayor is trying to deny benefits to even the first responders, is a clue that nothing has changed.
