THIS IS THE TIME FOR EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THEIR OWN MURDER-BY-CORPORATION. DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH CANCER? HELP THEM BY TAKING THE ACTIONS BELOW:
DOES THE OIL INDUSTRY CREATE JOBS? YES: FOR CANCER SURGEONS. Did you know that oil workers have the highest rates of cancer on Earth? The oil industry has had reports on the toxicity of the material it pumps, for over 20 years, that it has avoided sharing with it's employees.
Oil is the deadliest substance on Earth. Some people think that cigarettes hold that claim, but it is the petrochemicals in the cigarettes that may cause most of the smoking related cancers. Oil causes cancer, war, corruption and economic disaster.How can you help? Do these things today:
1. Forward the URL of this page: http://petroleum-products-cause-cancer.weebly.com to everybody you can. Tweet it to everybody on your Twitter account. Mention it daily on your Facebook account. Post it on every social network you can.
2. Write every elected official and ask them why they are using your tax money to subsidize super-rich oil companies? Ask them why we have not nationalized the oil industry? Ask them if an oil company has ever given them, or their office, any money? TELL THEM you want alternative energy THIS YEAR! Oil companies spend tens of millions of dollars buying favors from people who work in Washington to get them to make it easier for them to make more money and easier to give you cancer.
3. Tell everyone you know about the dangers of petrochemicals.
4. Write as many newspapers and magazines as you can and ask them to write more stories about this issue.
5. Join the class action lawsuit on this site.
6. Order some promotional material from this site and use in public where many people will see it.
7. When you put gasoline in your car, avoid breathing any of the fumes. There is a sign on your gas pump telling you that the fumes and residue on the pump handle causes cancer.
Modern genome, DNA, & biomarking science has proven the link between petro-materials, cancer and related illness. The connection has been known for decades by the oil industry. Oil has never been good for our population. Now there is proof that it is a product of mass affliction (A PMA). Now you can do something about it.
If you live above an area that was "Fracked" (Google this term) then you were exposed to carcinogens.
Carcinogens can travel through ground- ways and bays to your city. (IE: the massive breast cancer rate in Marin County, Calif. and the adjacent Richmond oil refinery/storage center)
Science shows that ancient peoples who lived near tar pits got cancer.
In an oil spill, the government will not allow you on the beach to help with cleanup without hazmat gear because government records prove that oil causes cancer but oil lobby groups pay to hush that fact up. Oil IS toxic.
A study of childhood leukemia in England mapped every child with the disease and found they all occurred in a circle, in the center of which was a gas station. Living near a petrol station could quadruple the risk of childhood leukemia, research suggested today. The study in France found a link between cases of acute leukemia among youngsters and how close they lived to a fuel station or a repair garage. Research has already shown an association between adults' occupational exposure to benzene, a hydrocarbon derived from petrol, and leukemia.
The latest study is published in the Journal Of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. The study based findings on 280 cases of childhood leukemia and a comparison group of 285 children. They were drawn from four hospitals in Nancy, Lille, Lyon and Paris, with almost two-thirds of the children with leukemia aged between two and six. But a child whose home was near a gas station was four times more likely to develop leukemia than a child whose home was not.
They Are Killing Our Children!
The risk to children living near any gas station is even greater for acute nonlymphoblastic leukemia, which was seven times more common among children living close to a petrol station or garage. The longer a child had lived there, the higher their risk of leukemia appeared to be. There are 6,600 cases of leukemia a year in Britain. Although it is the most common form of childhood cancer, it affects three times as many adults as children. Benzene exposure has serious health effects. The American Petroleum Institute (API) stated in 1948 that "it is generally considered that the only absolutely safe concentration for benzene is zero." The US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) classifies benzene as a human carcinogen. Long-term exposure to excessive levels of benzene in the air causes leukemia, a potentially fatal cancer of the blood-forming organs, in susceptible individuals. In particular, Acute myeloid leukemia or acute non-lymphocytic leukemia (AML & ANLL) is not disputed to be caused by benzene. IARC rated benzene as "known to be carcinogenic to humans" (Group 1).
Alberta's oil sands are one of the world's biggest deposits of oil, but the cost of extracting that oil may be the health of the people living around them. High levels of toxic chemicals and carcinogens have been found in the water, soil, and fish downstream of the oil sands. The local health authority of Fort Chipewyan, Alberta commissioned the study in response to locals' claims that the oil extraction projects upstream were damaging the health of citizens. Petrochemicals and their byproducts, such as dioxin, are known to cause an array of serious health problems, including cancers and endocrine disruption.Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) is a term used to describe a large family of several hundred chemical compounds that originally come from crude oil.
Petrochemicals can travel 15 miles down and 20 miles sideways through soil. When oil companies flood the ground with water they just spread the cancer. That is one of the reason's Marin County has so much cancer.
Total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) is a term used to describe a large family of several hundred chemical compounds that originally come from crude oil. Crude oil is used to make petroleum products, which can contaminate the environment. Because there are so many different chemicals in crude oil and in other petroleum products, it is not practical to measure each one separately. However, it is useful to measure the total amount of TPH at a site.TPH is a mixture of chemicals, but they are all made mainly from hydrogen and carbon, called hydrocarbons. Scientists divide TPH into groups of petroleum hydrocarbons that act alike in soil or water. These groups are called petroleum hydrocarbon fractions. Each fraction contains many individual chemicals.
Some chemicals that may be found in TPH are hexane, jet fuels, mineral oils, benzene, toluene, xylenes, naphthalene, and fluorene, as well as other petroleum products and gasoline components. However, it is likely that samples of TPH will contain only some, or a mixture, of these chemicals. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that one TPH compound (benzene) is carcinogenic to humans. IARC has determined that other TPH compounds (benzo[a]pyrene and gasoline) are carcinogenic to humans.
Benzene causes leukemia. Benzene as a cause of leukemia had documented since 1928 (1 p. 7-9). In 1948, the American Petroleum Institute officially reported a link between this solvent used in many of their industries used and cases of leukemia in their workers. Their findings concluded that the only safe level of benzene exposure is no exposure at all (2).
Soil is a sponge. Petrochemicals can travel 15 miles down and 20 miles sideways through soil.
States are suddenly exposing the public to massive cancer risk at gas stations.
Some states have ordered the click-lock, or stay-on, latch on gas pump handles to be cut off. This means you have to stand at the gas pump with the pump handle in your hand, constantly squeezing the handle while your face is directly above the gas tank inlet. This is forcing you to inhale the most lethal vapors on Earth. Besides the inconvenience, it exposes you to toxic risk that is massively greater than if the click-lock was used and you were able to wait in your car while the tank filled. Additionally, gas pump handles have the highest exposure risk for toxic materials.
FRACKING FOR NATURAL GAS IS A LIE. IT DOES KILL WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS!! ROCK & SOIL SUCK THE TOXINS UPWARDS INTO THE DRINKING WATER AND HOME FOUNDATIONS LIKE A SPONGE. The metal & concrete tubes that ANGA says they are using are only in one part of the dig, the rest of the dig allows deadly toxins to flow through soil and rock and kill & sicken the children and families that live above & nearby those gas fracturing sites.
Facts about the risk of exposure to gasoline, petroleum and petrochemical materials. When you go to pump gas into your car, read all of the signs on the gas pump, at least one of the signs will tell you that you are exposing yourself to cancer. Gasoline, petroleum and petrochemicals may be the single largest cause of cancer on Earth. (NUCLEAR ENERGY CAUSES CANCER TOO! Even the smallest exposure to gamma radiation launches cancer)
