Next week marks the sixth anniversary of the “Great Gulf Coast Holocaust”. The media would have you believe it is over. It is not! I guarantee that I am the only writer who is publishing a story on this subject. However, it is difficult to believe based upon the evidence, that the Gulf oil spill is not the number one cause of death in America. This is the most ignore health story of its type. Based upon the epidemiological evidence, the Gulf should immediately be evacuated. The poison is in the air, it is in the water, it is in the food, and it is in the people. Children growing up in the Gulf region, now, should expect a 20-30% lower lifespan than the rest of the country. And the Gulf is still leaking oil.
The people in the Gulf are in grave danger. The health reports, the geological reports and the weather reports are suggestive of one thing, the people of the Gulf are looking at greatly reduced lifespans. If they move now, they could mitigate some of the effects. The key word is some.
From the scientific evidence that I have seen, if I lived in the Gulf, I would immediately leave to a safer location.
