Ex BP cleanup worker speaks: people are sick and dying in the Gulf

See Also:

Notes from a Facebook buddy:

This young woman, Jennifer Rexford, BP-hired oil cleanup worker, is documenting her illness from the toxins in the gulf with her video camera. If you think it’s just headaches or something like that, watch this. Severe neurological damage. Doctors and hospitals refuse to acknowledge this with anyone there who’s sick.  And there are apparently tens of thousands now.

Paul Doomm is mentioned twice in this video.  He is a 22 year old who swam in and ate from the Gulf all summer, against his grandmother’s advice.  He has been hospitalized after seeing 94 doctors who don’t know what to do for him.  His  blood had the highest amount of PAH’s ever documented.  You can see Paul in this video (he’s the one in the wheelchair).

In this 2/21/11 video, Jennifer’s eye is swollen shut. She shows the results of a blood workup for Gulf chemicals and she is loaded with them. She also shows her hospital record, where she was diagnosed for stroke. The hospitals will not admit people are sick and dying from the chemicals in the gulf.

  2. Just another scheme from Haliburton and other Corporations to do what they want without any kind of accountability. The only way for us as human beings. to defeat theese white collar criminals is on mass. It is time for a million people to march on the neighborhood of the rich find out were they live and take them and put them on trial and hold them responsible.Yes I am talking about Sick Honey, George Bush. both of them and any one else that profits from the death of innocent people.

    The GuLF STUDY (or Gulf Long Term Follow-Up Study) is a health study for individuals who helped with the oil spill clean up, took training, signed up to work, or were sent to the Gulf to help in some way after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is sponsoring this study. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is leading this research with the support of many local community groups.
    The GuLF STUDY is designed to find answers to the questions that matter to oil spill clean-up workers and their community.

  5. I disagree my son who was 19 when he worked on the spill in Kalamazoo or Marshall Mich worked with out protective gear for 2weeks before being given stuff to wear…He now has swollen lymph nodes in his neck and on his Chest CT they found nodules that they say the etiology is indeterminate..He is scheduled for a biopsy of the one on his neck in a week…what are the symptoms peeps are having…He was the person who climbed up on the tanker to check how full they were breathing in the chemicals for 2 weeks 12hrs A day 7 days a week…Anything you can tell me might help in his diagnoses.TY

  6. The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Americans With Disabilities Act, will require that the new fund set up to compensate Plaintiff Steering Committee attorneys, that withhold 6% of settlements, as ordered by Judge Barbier, BE JUSTIFICATION for these attorneys to provide extended representation to disabled claimants! Please bring this to the attention of US Senator Richard Shelby and others

  7. I am a paramedic that responded and worked as part of this spill, I was exposed and treated May 26-27 to unknown chemicals, and since that time have had many health problems, I am not looking for a meal ticket! I just want my medical bills paid, I owe thousands to hospitals and can afford to see a doctor anymore, I have headaches, memory loss, vision problems, menstrual cycle issues, cardiac issues, edema to my lower ext which start while on an extended 7 day beach clean up. I was denies any losses by BP stating that I did not have proof I was there, check your medical records you will find my name on every run report from that date and many more. I was dx with chemical induced bronchitis and conjunctivitis, and contact dermatitis. I am not looking to live free for the rest of my life, but this year alone I have lost of 50,000 in wages due to beening unable to do my job. Where are the politicans? Are you lining you pockets with money while my kids and I do with out????I just got my blood work results back….elevated levels of benzene, toluene, m,p-Xylene, hexane…..Really but according to the site BP guys we were not exposed I call BS…..

  8. Please read 10 Essential Herbs by Lalitha Thomas. Chaparral can be used to help detoxify the blood from on-going or long-term exposure through handling and breathing toxic chemicals (p. 76). ISBN 0934252483 Good luck and much love.

  10. II am a ex BP oil spill clean up member and I am not looking for a “meal ticket:” as posted above. I would however like to be able to breathe!!! I hope that the ones with negative comments posted on here never have to wake up in the throws of an asthma attack and suffer the helpless feeling that you can not catch your breath and feel as though you are about to pass out.

  14. My dad worked for BP (Amoco) for 30 years. He worked as a pumper in south Texas. He would test the oil by running it through his hands. No safety rules were posted at that time as far as danger. In 1984, after 5 months of retirement , he developed acute leukemia and died within 2 weeks of diagnosis. The doctors attending him wanted to do a tissue test after his death. It was full of benzene. Very shortly after, safety took a big jump in importance after my mother tried suing the company at the advice of his doctors. Of course the big guys won and my mom walked away with a small pittance. Anyone exposed to the crude oil should watch for leukemia.

  15. I know it sounds trivial but I’ve been reading about
    the effects of bentonite clay on toxins in the body, and how it can remove them. Perhaps these people who have been exposed to these chemicals might try using some and see if it helps their symptoms.
    Also deactivated charcoal is good at removing poisons from the body.
    It’s worth a try.

  16. Ya’ll are nuts and need to be medicated at the very least. The boogie man is not out to get you and Santa is not real. I bet that everyone of you VICTIMS out there are ready to settle a wrongful sickness case for an undisclosed amount of money. You will never see a dime so start looking elsewhere for your meal ticket. Perhaps a J J Job is the real answer to your problems. Grow a pair and get to work.

    • these are relief workers you goul.

      They were helping a disater-struck area and became ill because the chemicals the where using are more toxic than what they where cleaning up.

      You make it sound like these people are sitting at home on wellfare, cleaning their nails, when in reality they are probably outstanding members of society working to make this world a better place.

      Go troll somewhere else.

    • Justin,get back on YOUR meds. You sound like a BP PR worker. Or someone who does not know what chemicals do to living organisms. Take a spoonful of clorexit and see for yourself.

    • Justin, you not so smart me thinks. Seriously you obviously do not have a technical grasp on what is happening. Instead of worrying about testicles, read a book. You do know how to read, right? Geez I hope you can so you can enjoy this comment.

  17. Why do they not mention the Chemical dispersants used????? Clorexit 1000x more toxic than the crude oil!

  22. Look here , countries fighting for democracy in the middle east. While you fight for democracy care that you do not let the evils of capitalism creep into your society take what our country has done and cast out the evils that we have. This is a tragedy all fueled by our greed for money.

    • I can see that some of what you say is true the greed for money, but what you dont see is the many , many people who are truly still hurting from this. Many homes are put up for sale, business are closed, bills going unpaid, all related to the bp oil spill in one way or the other. So, while some are greedy there are alot that are without relief still and with the way things are being handled, most likely want be any either.

  23. try the gerson therapy at gerson.org

    eating good and doing coffee enemas will clean out almost any toxins and your body could heal itself. let her know if anyone has contact with her

  24. Externalities like an oil spill often mete out far reaching pronouncements on the fragile balance of our ecosystem. Recent events in the Gulf of Mexico certainly go against sustainable development. The world body responsible in this connection must take a firm position. I’m inclined to believe Americans deserve better.

    • …When people are sick and dying from life-threatening pollution, human rights campaigners, environmentalists, marine biologists and Friends of the Earth must sponsor an independent investigation and make the findings public so the Government can be held accountable…and by the way…why is congress behaving like a lame duck?…Are oil corporations in America bigger than the State?…Are the laws of America selective as to who should obey?…If this is happening in a First World nation like America, what becomes of us in the Third World?

      • yes Dr., oil companies are bigger than the state. Look at how much they make compared to other countries! Then look at who owns the oil companies! then look at who owns our Congress and our President, and you will see that it all makes sense. I’m positive that Americans desrve better, the question is what are we going to do about it? When are we the people gonna start holding the elites accountable? taht is the real question.

  25. I’m seeing many corporate sock puppets posting at the Dr Ricky Ott page.

    http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/05/02/lessons-from-the-exxon-valdez-spill/

    These sock puppets are paid shills for the oil cos.They try to play down,and ridicule those who have been sickened by the oil spills around the world.When you read a person making excuses for the oil cos,or Monsanto,or the nuclear industry or…..know they are paid sock puppets,or misinformed ideological hacks.
