This story has a beginning, it has a middle but it has no ending.
The 'ending' will undoubtedly be written in countless hospital records, on tiny gravestones, in the bones of the crippled and on the hearts of the bereaved. Even so, the true cause of the 'ending' will never be advertised. One record that slipped past the establishment net is duplicated herein but, believe it or not, the existence of this 'death certificate' has been denied, in writing and to overseas scientific inquiry, by Australian administrators.
What follows is but a fractional part of the 'middle' of a story that began before the turn of the century and which was provoked by a statement contained in an "Address in Reply to the Government's Speech to Parliament", as recorded in Victorian Hansard of 12 August 1987, by Mr Harley Rivers Dickinson, Liberal Party Member of the Victorian Parliament for South Barwon. Hence the title.
The relevant Hansard abstract is reproduced herewith. It is emphasized that the writer imputes Mr Dickinson with no other responsibility for the contents of this thesis than being the parliamentary 'trigger' which motivated it and the researched data which it contains.
In a book written by Dr. Hans Mollenburgh of Haarlem, Holland, called Fluoride - The Freedom Fight, the author describes the ultimately successful endeavors to free the Dutch people from water fluoridation.
Those endeavors included the only properly conducted double-blind study ever done anywhere in the world into the effects of tap water fluoridated at one part of fluoride to 1,000,000 parts of water (1p.p.m.)
One brief passage is headed "Perkins", and a reproduction of that section gives sufficient confirmation, by a remote and independent source, of the "Dickinson Statement" as printed in Hansard, to reinforce the need for additional investigation into this one 'behavior control' aspect of the fluoride debate and relate it to 1987. (The entire "Perkins" paragraph is reproduced below.)
Elsewhere in this book, Dr Mollenburgh also relate how that first "Perkins" anecdote was confirmed in differing ways and from the reliable independent sources.
Actually there is little that is novel in the concept of controlling the minds and manners of the multitude by chemical/dietary means.
That is was practiced by Hitler's regime is made the more credible when we know that as far back as 1938 the US Government, an ally to boot, and the government of a democratic Christian country, was considering the transformation of American citizens and others into 'zombies' by a number of proposed techniques. The US Army searched for 'the perfect incapacitating agent', according to General Fellenz, "to put in the enemy's water supply". Included in the drugs tested were the hallucinogenic LSD and the amnesiac BZ (10 times more potent than LSD), and a 'schizophrenic agent called bulbocapine".
The "Rockefeller Report" to the United States President on CIA activities said:
One drug which received special attention in the 'fifties and early sixties, under the cryptonym of MK-ULTRA, was suxamethonium chloride (listed under a number of product names including Anectine), a halogenated anti-cholinergic agent with all the symptomatic side-effects up to and including cardiac arrest ascribed to these agents in the medical literature.
Please retain the term 'anti-cholinergic' in mind, for owing to the health implications attendant on this particular anti-metabolic activity, it figures repeatedly in this thesis.
An adviser to the US Government on hypnotism or psychological behavior control, Dr. George Estabrooks, later became Chairman, Department of Psychology, Colgate University.
Internationally, Colgate was and remains the most ardent producer and advocate for the fluoridation of a domestic product - fluoridated toothpaste.
Now, should the reader's mind be already boggled to the point of disbelief, there are two facts which, if known about and/or remembered, may instill sufficient confidence in that which is even more 'boggling' and is yet to come.
Later on in this text we will recall certain happenings relative to ex-trainees from these establishments and the paradoxical effects of fluorides on behavior of the human being.
The Parliamentary "Dickinson Statement" refers to the "vast Farben chemical plants in Germany."
It has been said by Anthony C. Sutton in his book, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler:
Interssen Gemeinschaft Farben (Interssen Gemeinschaft der Deuschen Teerfarbenindustrie or, simply, I.G. Farben) was a German chemical manufacturing concern that supplied the chlorine gas used by Germany during the First World War, but the eventual creation of the huge I.G. Farben cartel began in 1924 when American bankers began to arrange foreign loans in what Professor Carroll Quigley terms "the Dawes Plan, largely a J.P. Morgan production."
In 1928 Henry Ford merged his German assets with I.G.Farben, to be followed by the American Standard Oil Company (the Rockefellers) who, in concert with I.G. Farben developed the coal-to-oil hydrogenation process.
In a letter to Roosevelt from Berlin in the early thirties, the US Ambassador in Germany, William Dodd, said:
The I.G. Farben assets in America were controlled by a holding company, American I.G .Farben, which listed on its Board of Directors:
It is a very interesting fact of history that three other members of the Board of American I.G. Farben were tried and convicted as German 'war criminals' for their 'crimes against humanity' during World War II, while serving on the I.G. Farben Board of Governors.
None of the Americans who sat on the same board as those convicted was ever tried as a 'war criminal'.
Two questions must be asked here:
The answer to (a) is an unequivocal yes! As for (b), I.G. Farben signed cartel agreements with such companies as,
...and I.G. Farben either owns outright, has had a substantial interest in or has had other cartel agreements with,
The list goes on and on and on and includes Proctor and Gamble who 'domesticated' the word "fluoride" with official encouragement in 1958, being the originators of the infamous "Crest" fluoridated toothpaste campaign.
The only reference to "Farben" traceable in a limited search of modern literature was in the 25th Edition of Martindale, under "FBA Pharmaceutical Limited: Products of Farbenfabriken Bayer."
All corporate traces of the huge I.G cartel have been absorbed by the hundreds, if not thousands, of one-time cartel members, but the 'malady lingers on'...
In Australia, the Dental Health and Research Foundation which has such names as Colgate, Kellogg and other ex-I.G. Farben associates listed among its governors and contributors had been irreverently but accurately dubbed "the fluoride mafia".
Closely allied with this Sydney University 'foundation' in its printed promotional claims for fluorides and fluoridation, is Foundation 41. Unfortunately, the data of the 'thorough investigations' said to have been carried out by the latter 'foundation' into the halogen fluoride, its benefits and its hazards, have never been made available despite numerous appeals.
An ABC science show's examination of the scientific integrity of Foundation 41 may explain the elusive (or is the word illusory?) data.
America is literally bursting at the seams with such foundations, but amongst the earlier names were the Rockefeller Foundation, The Carnegie Foundation and the Ford Foundation. It is necessary to mention these specifically because they were the first foundations to make grants in the population (control) field, and the Carnegie family merged with the Mellon family Institute to create Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh in 1967.
The Mellon family were the founders of the original Mellon Institute whence came the "amazing (but totally fallacious) sodium fluoride/dental caries prevention discovery" - the discovery that literally turned 'garbage into gold'.
The Mellon family also founded the American Aluminium Company (Alcoa), the largest producer of the waste toxin, sodium fluoride, which up to this point of 'caries discovery' had a relatively little known commercial or industrial value, was an environmental hazard of great public concern, and was very costly in terms of safe disposal.
So we retrace our steps to the "Dickinson Statement" in Hansard and Chas Eliot Perkins.
In a letter abstracted from Fluoridation and Lawlessness (published by the Committee for Mental Health and National Security) to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on 2nd October 1954, a Charles Eliot Perkins, scientist and author of Washington DC, and one must assume, that same Charles Eliot Perkins of the "Dickinson Statement" to the Victorian Parliament, said this (and the words of the last two lines of the second paragraph cannot be overemphasized):
Mr. Perkins does not involve America, American institutions or individuals in his assertions, but when Major George Racey Jordan was in charge of the massive 'lend-lease airlift' operations from Great Falls, Montana, to Russia via Alaska, he queried the transshipment of considerable amounts of sodium fluoride via Fairbanks, Alaska, to Russia. He was told 'frankly' that it was to put into the drinking water in the prisoner-of-war camps to take away their will to resist.
The published knowledge that sodium fluoride was known for this mind and behavior-changing potential was available at the start of this century, as witness such entries as "Fluoricum Acidum" (Encyclopedia of Pure 'Materia Medica', vol. ix, p.333).
America has long been interested in behavior and mind control by chemical means. Americans who were at once financiers, industrialists and population-control advocates were intimately involved with Germany where chemical extermination and chemical behavior control by, inter alia, sodium fluoride, were placed into practice.
America transferred this knowledge and material, inter alia, to Russia during its 'lend-lease' co-operation. An American major producer of aluminium was the world's major source of sodium fluoride.
American 'education and research' funded by,
A predominantly American company was the first to exploit this concept in dentifrice production, and American 'medical research' figured largely in the 'fluorination' processes that converted the negative embarrassment of mounting industrial waste to huge positive profit increase - processes that other countries hastened to emulate: processes which include the enormous outlet for fluorides in the fluoridation of water supplies.
Although fertilizer production has not been a part of this thesis, the following 'connections' with this point should be made. The manufacturing processes for synthetic dyes, explosives and fertilizer are almost chemically synonymous, and I.G. Farben was expert in all production phases of these 'necessities'. Sodium silico-fluoride was a waste constituent from the refining of phosphate rock, until a 'use' could be found or created for the waste.
A letter (reproduced below) for the United States Environmental Protection Agency throws the spotlight on the unique 'waste disposal via the public kidney' concept that was created.
The question raised by the Hansard "Dickinson Statement", and perhaps aggravated by this dissertation and data, is this:
A Multinational Can of Worms
The link between Colgate and 'mind control' was mentioned earlier.
That company's reputation with fluoride as a toothpaste ingredient is a promotional legend, particularly in Kenya where a ban on the TV advertising of fluoridated toothpaste produced some extraordinary pecuniary persuasion from Colgate in attempts to preserve the status quo for the company's benefit.
When official fluoridation corruption was exposed in New Zealand, a 'scientific study' was hurriedly executed to try to justify the original government/industry claims and repair the damage done to the fluoride empire.
The accreditation appended to that study is reproduced here, with emphasis added:
Earlier, the name Kellogg was tied into the I.G. Farben corporate machinations. The words below are reproduced from the cover of a recent World Health Organization (WHO) publication advocating fluoridation/fluorides, Appropriate Use of Fluorides for Human Health:
The intertwining, overlapping, interlocking co-incidence between erstwhile I.G. Farben companies and the continuing degradation of human health, our ecology and environment in exchange for the corporate dollar is virtually endless.
But simply, as one example, the Nestle Company, once accused of selling nutritionally barren milk formula to third-world babies, has recently been found guilty of marketing "Pure Apple Juice" which was anything but "pure" and had never been anywhere near an apple.
The Nestle Company has been nominated by the Ecologist as one of several multinational companies involved in the destruction of "the lungs of the Earth", the Brazilian rainforests.
It Really Gets In!
The following pages make slight transition from historically recorded fact and logic to indisputable fact, biochemical fact and medical literature fact.
The pharmaceutical nomenclature and biochemical data involve fluorine/fluorides, with or without other ingredients, in virtually every phase of mind and behavior control from mild sedation through 'controlled' unconsciousness to death.
'Side-effects' of all drugs have in common the 'paradoxical' characteristic of having an effect, on some individuals, exactly opposite of that which was the intentional effect, converting, for example, a tranquillizer into a potent stimulant, and thus the consumer from a 'pussy cat' into a slavering maniac.
Think back to the dosing of service personnel who are trained to hunt, maim and kill their fellow man while under the influence of this or other forms of chemical behavior-control, and consider the possible reaction of such 'trainees' when discharged into the mainstream of society.
Are any of the terrorist activities around the globe, including otherwise inexplicable recent happenings in Australia, the grim result of such biochemical paradox?
Fluoridated Propellants and Refrigerants - Fluoridated Hole in the Ozone Layer
Halogenated hydrocarbons (sometimes called fluorocarbons or, when the name of the weapon must be changed to protect the guilty, just CFCs) are too numerous to list, being over 150 in number. In 'asthma' sprays, the warning exists in all product literature (available only to the doctor, not to the patient):
Another stark warning from "restricted distribution" literature:
The most frequently used fluorides under this heading (with their identifying numbers in parentheses) are:
The side-effects of exposure to these fluorides, ranging from the 'more common' to the 'rarely reported' are as follows:
All of the above 'side-effects' are associated with either the acute or the chronic symptoms of "anti-cholinergic" toxicity. And there is that word 'anti-cholinergic' again.
With a sufficient amount of these fluorocarbons (CFCs) being used (in the aerosol form alone) to threaten the world's atmospheric and climate conditions through deterioration of the ozone layer, it is not remarkable that this volume represents an environmentally hazardous anti-cholinergic (or anti-metabolic, ganglion-blocking) agent for all humanity.
Discharges from certain industrial processes carry substantial amounts of gaseous fluoride. In particular, hydrogen fluoride, when washed from the atmosphere by rain, forms a solution of hydrofluoric acid (0.7 ppm in Mojave Desert rainfall and 0.3 ppm in Siberian snows), so these anti-cholinergic discharges offer an additional threat by contributing to the fluoridated hole in the ozone layer.
One must assume it is owing to the enormous economic impact of this decaying ozone on the casual industries that sources of culprit industrial discharges have not featured in the current spate of international scientific concern nor in the records of the world's atmospheric/climatic monitors.
As an example of administratively approved industrial output, the first stage of the Portland (Victoria, Australia) smelter was issued with a pollution license to discharge to the environment 70 tonnes per year of fluoride in gaseous and particulate forms. It is possible that this amount had been greatly exceeded because no monitoring of the discharges has thus far been executed.
Within a short 12 months after starting of smelting operations, an unknown but allegedly high number of pot-room workers at the smelter acquired 'pot-room asthma' - a convenient euphemism for anti-cholinergic damage.
Fluorinated Pharmaceuticals - Fluoridated Income Generation
In an effort to increase the bio-availability of the remedial ingredient or ingredients, many pharmaceutical products are halogenated.
There are still many chlorinated and a few brominated products designed as nostrums for human disease states. Of recent years, the catalogue of fluoridated pharmaceuticals has doubled and redoubled until any representative listing would be beyond the scope of this paper.
The proclaimed intention of the pharmacist in fluorinating a product is to enhance still further its metabolic activity and therefore its alleged remedial qualities. For example, fludrocortisone acetate has glucocoricoid actions about 15 times as potent as hydrocortisone (unfluorinated), and mineralocorticoid effects more than 100 times as potent.
But, in potentiating the remedial effect, the undesirable side-effects are also worsened and the 'therapeutic' industry gets an income from two sources: from treating the original disease condition and, subsequently, from repairing the iatrogenic effects of the initial drug treatment.
A useful example here is fluorinated toothpaste which has the long-term effect not of improving dental health but, by chronic anti-metabolic processes, of severely destroying it.
Thus every Australian city with or without fluoridated water supplies has as much as doubled the number of registered dentists since the advent of fluorinated toothpaste, fluorinated gels and fluorinated rinses.
Or take the more extreme example of little Jason Burton who had non-prescription fluorinated dental decay-prevention tablets (sodium fluoride) provided for him by loving parents who were in total ignorance of their fluoride toxic hazard. Jason ingested a lethal dose of these tablets and died. We only know about Jason
because the doctor recognized accurately and conscientiously registered the cause of his death. The existence of the death certificate has actually been denied by pro-fluoride Australian 'scientists' in reply to queries from overseas scientists.
It should be clear from the foregoing and what follows that human disease conditions, ranging from 'pot-room asthma' through the various perilous stages of anti-cholinergic response to expiration, can be accidentally or deliberately induced by an interminable list of fluoride pollution and fluorinated compounds which include a fluorinated environment, fluorinated atmosphere and a fluorinated drinking water supply.
It may be difficult for the 'man in the street' to believe that a substance with so many industrial, commercial and medical 'applications' could be derived from or structured around a scientifically recognized toxic waste product. This thesis should illustrate that the chemical, pharmaceutical, commercial and political worlds are well aware of the deadly potential of this halogen and intend to exploit that potential to everlasting human detriment.
Fluorinated Tranquillizers - Fluoridated Acquiescence, Lethargy, Apathy, Stupidity.
There are two basic forms of halogenated tranquillizer: major and minor. The minor tranquillizers are halogenated with either chlorine or bromine. The major tranquillizers, albeit of variable potency, are those numerically listed hereunder and are all fluorinated. All are anti-cholinergic agents with intentional effects on central nervous systems allied with cardiac and respiratory depression.
The figure after the hyphen is the number of proprietary products each classification, in addition to the base chemical (in capitals).
Notes: No. 5 FLUNITTRAZEPAM (Rohypnol), which is fluorinated Valium, was recently prescribed for a youth in Western Australia and was blamed for his subsequent death.
Valium (Diazepam) was the "tranquillizer most involved" in road accident victims, according to a study carried out by Sydney University (Prof. Graham Starmer, Quantum, 26 April 1988).
An obvious question: What aggravated effect would the increased potency of the fluorinated variety (Rohypnol) have on the road fatalities?
Rohypnol and Valium are proprietary names of Roche products. Roche was a Swiss member of the I.G. Farben cartel and is probably more infamous for the terrible Stanley Adams family tragedy accurately immortalized in the film, A Song For Europe.
The ABC TV program, 7.30 Report (12 May 1988), told how the Western Australian penal system routinely administered both Serapax and Rohypnol (synergistic drugs) to prisoners to "make them into little robots most of the time" - including, it was alleged, throughout pregnancy.
This is a total of 21 fluorinated tranquillizing compounds plus an additional 58 brand-name major tranquillizers using a fluoride as an ingredient. Undoubtedly many others have been added to this list since the reference work was published in June 1977.
Florida International University (Rotton, Tikovsky and Feldman) showed that:
This finding is of relevance when driving or operating machinery, if of no other consequence. Nevertheless, attempts over a number of years to draw the attention of those authorities allegedly concerned with driver/industrial safety, have been met only with silence or obstruction.
Early in 1987, Swedish researchers linked tranquillizers to birth defects, nominating (in Lancet) the drug benzodiazepine (Diazapam or Valium) as a particular culprit.)
Fluorinated Anaesthetics - Fluoridated Unconsciousness
(The penultimate in mind and behavior control)
As with fluorinated tranquillizers, there are a number of anesthetics halogenated with chlorine and bromine. The 'popular' modern anesthetics are those listed here, which are all fluorinated. Once again, all are anti-cholinergic agents with intentional, designed effects on central human nervous systems, accompanied by cardiac and respiratory depression.
Note: There are scientific studies which demonstrate that the progeny of anesthetists have a higher rate of birth defect than does the general community. A significant statistic in the established perinatal (SIDS) mortality/fluorine connection. Some of the hazardous side-effects given in the medical literature for fluorinated anesthetics are difficult to separate from those effects intended to induce a hopefully controllable unconscious state.
For example, under "toxic effects" are listed
In other words, all of the anti-cholinergic effects variously intended or variously inherent are induced by the fluorinated propellants, fluorinated pharmaceuticals and/or fluorinated tranquillizers and fluorinated exterminators.
So far, these "data" pages illustrate how fluorine and fluoridation have been sold, packaged and/or prescribed for both public and professional credibility on 'health' grounds. The final page deals with the same halogen as it really is, really was and always will be, and as it is employed in those products listed. It is one of the deadliest, multi-functional and insidious poisons known to mankind.
It is significant, in the context of deliberate government mind-control and physical/chemical intervention, to note that in Australia the hazardous fluorinated anti-metabolic agents and anti-cholinergic agents enjoy federal and state government approval and subsidized distribution, whilst the safe nutritional substances, vitally necessary to combat and repair systemic chronic toxic injury wrought by the "free drugs", are available only at considerable cost to the victim.
Furthermore, the same bureaucracy that approved the 'killers' has sought to restrict public access to the remedial supplements. Some local councils even infringe the laws of medical prescription and issue free sodium fluoride tablets for dosing of children without any warning, much less any advice on antidotes.
And those same government instrumentalities and ministerial 'heads' that oppose the ready availability of nutritional supplements are the same ministers and public servants who lie, cheat, defraud, defame, blackmail and coerce to increase the distribution or compel the ingestion of fluorides and fluoride-bearing products: the same as those who, in defense of the Australian Constitution (section 51 [xxiiia]), legislated to have the chemical dumped into our drinking water supplies.
To sum up the above, the killer drugs are approved, encouraged or enforced and subsidized, while the vital remedial nutrients and metabolites (rendered necessary by the 'free' hazardous drugs) are not subsidized but availability is officially discouraged and obstructed.
FLUORINATED EXTERMINATORS - Fluoridated Death (The Ultimate in Mind and Behaviour Control)
As with tranquillizers and anesthetics, chemical warfare gases are halogenated.
Riot-control gases, tear gas or lacrimators employ either chlorine (chlorinated, e.g. mace) or bromine (brominated) as halogenators, but the lethal German-developed (I.G. Farben) nerve gases Soman and Sarin are both fluorinated and replaced the earlier chlorinated Tabun for speed and efficacy in killing the enemy by their immediate anti-cholinergic agency.
The almost immediate death caused by exposure to nerve gases is a result of instantaneous 'blocking' of catalysis and nerve action by the fluorinated gas, by acute anti-cholinergic agency (enzymatic 'blocking') and consequent cessation of heart and lung function.
Included here are two medical fluorinated compounds called:
The physiological consequences attending this deliberate fluorination of a human metabolite illustrates the deadly peril of any fluorination process but, in particular, the fluorination of a vital metabolite (rendering it anti-metabolic in action), human electrolyte or essential nutrient such as water.
In Britain, this product, a close chemical cousin to the stuff used to fluorinate water supplies and toothpastes, etc., "is restricted to the extermination of rats in ships and sewers."
To quote from medical literature, "Warning: Inhalation Hazard. Inhalation of hydrofluorosilicic acid from soaked cotton clothing could cause irreversible lung damage in one minute" due to anti-cholinergic activity.
In other words, sodium fluoride is so much a part of multibillion-dollar industrial and pharmaceutical income that any withdrawal for any reason by the promoters, the fluoridationists or by anyone who has supported them for whatever purpose is impossible on a financial basis, embarrassing on a reputation basis, and unthinkable on a legal basis.
While this thesis is directed at the 'grass roots' where people are most likely to be affected (as a result of being screened from the truth), there will be some who, retaining the foolish but implanted 'reference complex', will need to verify the content.
This will be a simple matter for their own or public library sources without biased prompting by the author.
That said, the author acknowledges the considerable value of the following for evidential support of this thesis:
Since it was the parliamentary activities of Harley Rivers Dickinson, Member for South Barwon (Victoria), that prompted the research that led to writing of this thesis, it is fitting that the epilogue should refer to more representational work on the same subject (fluoridation of water supplies) by the same Member in the same Parliament.
In February 1983, , Harley Dickinson placed two "questions on notice" to the then Minister for Health, T. Roper, on behalf of his Geelong district constituents. The first question was in 10 parts and the second in eight parts, affording some excuse for delay in preparing comprehensive answers.
The questions were answered and recorded in Hansard of 7 April 1988 by the now-displaced T. Roper, on behalf of the present Minister for Health, D. White, more than five years after the asking - a period of waiting intolerable in a health matter, even were the questions answered in a generally responsible fashion which they certainly were not.
Without going into the detail of questions and answers, having pointed out the extreme and perilous lassitude of the (Victorian) State Government, suffice it to remark that the answers varied from patent falsehood to inadvertent exposure of ministerial fraud: from the repeated quoting of proven fraudulent 'evidence' to accurate but selected part-quotations of literature evidence:
This story is full of overlapping, interwoven, interlocking circumstance beyond the statistical or reasonable bounds of chance or coincidence. Pursuing each facet, each tortuous avenue from "The Dickinson Statement" as a starting point will confound and dumbfound the pursuer with still more mind-boggling information.
The histories of,
...are just a few of the 'avenues' to be explored that will make your hair 'stand on end'!
It is important to notice that the Kellogg company is the same one that designed the K-25 gas diffusion plant that used 25% of the Manhattan Project budget and gave the plant its code name, K-25. It and the Manhattan Project have long suppressed the dangers of low level fluorides.
The Kellogg process used a fine nickel powder cemented with calcium-fluoride to make the UF-6 resistant diffusion barrier.
In the 60's, 70's, and 80's, this barrier material could be found laying on the ground around plant parking lots, in the middle on intersections in the city, and tracked all around to homes. Any attempts at security or classification of these materials were well breached and not followed. Classification only lasts a few decades at most for any new technology, and this one was well exposed to anyone that looked.
In the 80's, it became apparent there were huge problems with fluorides emissions from the gas diffusion plants and one of these mechanisms involved the smelting of old barrier nickel material into ingots, and the process drove off toxic calcium-fluoride, HF, and other F-compounds to air.
In order to hide this, the managers used the cover that the barrier material was a proliferation risk, despite it being all over the town and well known to anyone that picked up a piece. The Russians, like the Middle East, went for second generation centrifuge systems as the method of enrichment. The anti-proliferation issue was an invention to shield the managers and careless operators of the gas diffusion plants from having to expose that they poisoned the workers and the region with rat poison.
It would trigger a more intense look and expose the illness mystery in the region.
Anyone reading about the issues of the Donora Fluoride Fog well recognize these same issues of calcium-fluoride used as a flux in the production of steel and what these related metal smelting emissions did to that town. In Donora, the town was poisoned and folks died of heart attacks and many suffered long term health damage.
In Oak Ridge, disclosures that the barrier material involved emissions of rat poison and HF into the air would set off more intense looks at the other sources for the extremely high levels of fluorides emitted to air from the plant.
The way OR hides this is play up the isotopes in the nickel ingots and have groups play up this contaminated metals issues to change the public's focus. This is a shell game like that of the original classification issues to hide the impacts of toxic national security programs on workers and communities.
This latest round of information control is about using plausible excuses to play games with classification to hide the largest of health problems from gas diffusion systems.
