Dioxin happens to be the Royal Road to liver cancer. I actually know two victims of agent orange and both contracted terminal liver cancer. Their escape is foundational to understanding how to cure cancer and a number of other serious ailments. What is more loathsome is how a corporate culture have arisen to exploit these diseases and toxins without ever actually working at curing them
Right now readers of this blog have solutions to all these insults to human health. It is challenging and takes active participation on the part of the patient but it is clearly doable. Yet our whole medical profession is economically trapped by our own hum,an nature and this parasitic economic model.
So it is quite nice to see at least some folks taking a nip out of Monsanto in particular.
Monsanto Ordered to Pay $93 Million to Small Town for Poisoning Citizens
- $9 million will be spent to clean dioxin contaminated dust from 4500 homes.
- $21 million will be spent to test to see if people have been poisoned with dioxin.
- Citizens will be monitored for such poisoning for 30 years, not just a few months.
- An additional $63 million is to be allotted if additional tests for dioxin contamination testing is necessary.
- Anyone who lived in the Nitro area between Jan. 1, 1948, and Sept. 3, 2010 will be tested for dioxin. Although they must show proof they lived in the area, they will be eligible for testing even if they no longer live in Nitro.
- Former or present employees of Monsanto are not eligible for any of these benefits.
- An office will be set up to organize testing for Nitro citizens. The registration of participants is to be overlooked by Charleston attorney Thomas Flaherty, who was appointed by the court.
- Residents have a right to file individual suits against Monsanto if medical tests show they suffered physical harm due to dioxin exposure.
Monsanto Produced Toxic Chemicals in Nitro
“There is no doubt that during and after the war, many Vietnamese absorbed this very toxic material [dioxin]. It is our belief from toxicological research and epidemiological studies from many countries that this dioxin probably resulted in significant health effects in Vietnam.” – Arnold Schecter and John Constable
“The politics of dioxin has been bitterly debated since the Vietnam War, but … we know that there is a health issue there and hopefully people will get their houses cleaned and the risk will come to an end and those exposed in the past will have the benefit of keeping an eye on their health.”
