Riki Ott: Why are so many people in the Gulf region getting sick?

“It’s Time to Create a Panic” ~ Riki Ott

Listen to the entire show ~ Why are so many people in the Gulf region getting sick?

(Source: Your Call) ~ A conversation with toxicologist Riki Ott about the human health epidemic she is witnessing in the Gulf since the BP oil disaster. How much (or how little) do we know about the health effects of oil and dispersants? How much is being covered up? The EPA says dispersants are safe. So what explains the rise in health problems?

  1. To Rikki Ott. The issue of what toxocity will remain in soil is one I am very close to.I am Ex BP, (left many years OK) Ex Saudi Aramco and have worked or associated with Oil/Gas Industry all my career. We have invented and sell a fast soil testing /screen utilising a portable Instrument and a Bio Sensor (Safe Soil Tester) based on Vibro Fischerie. It can be used to map/plot current areas of toxicity(PAH’s) on beaches,sedimentary mud flats,and inland soil areas.12minute test. I tried to get BP before oil spill had time to reach the shore to run a ” shore baseline survey’ as there would also have been historical oil contamination already there in some areas due to Katrina,Rita et al.. They ignored our suggestions. Remember to consider this when you engage BP. E.Bell
