More than 100 children who were exposed to chemical fumes from the 9/11 attacks have a far higher risk of heart disease than they should, a new study says.
After the Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001, the disaster site was omitting toxic fumes of mercury, asbestos, and jet fuel.
Experts say the fumes lingered until at least July 2002, when the clean-up was declared complete.
Now, an analysis by NYU Langone Health researchers of 308 children in the World Trade Center Health Registry (WTCHR) has shown the devastating impact this had on young people.
The 123 children with higher blood levels of the chemicals known to be in the dust had a 15 percent increase in levels of artery-hardening fats in their blood.
It is the first concrete study to lay bare the long-term cardiovascular health risks in children from toxic chemical exposure on 9/11.
In fact, a week after the attacks the EPA assured citizens that the site ‘did not pose a health hazard’.
The agency has since admitted that was wrong – and some say that even today people living in Lower Manhattan are exposed to dangerous fumes.
At last weeks Democratic debate the candidates were asked about their greatest fear, the only answer that resonated with me was from Jim Webb the past United States Senator from Virginia.
To my surprise after the debate Mr. Webb dropped out of the presidential race. His words however should not go unheeded. If He chooses to run as an independent candidate we hope his voice is respected. Webb’s patriotic service, and his absolute understanding of the way things run in Washington, politically and militarily, would have served this country well. If he chooses to remain a democrat and work within the Party, we hope his service to the POTUS of either party will be on the Cabinet level, in any Secretarial role he would choose, he is that good.
Whether one believes that Mr. Webb was a viable candidate, the poles remained unaware.
Webb’s answer to the question of what was his greatest fear; China.
Opening relations with China under President Nixon and his paranoid minions, may have assumed trade, financial relationships, cultural exchanges would lessen the fear of a Communist Power dominating the globe.
Today, with the help of our destroy the planet economic footprint, we get two superpowers competing for planetary resources and making profit the motive against all of the needs to sustain the concept of a living planet compatible to all of life.
Whether we choose to focus our attention on China as an adversary to contain, or whether it is Russia the other behemoth, whether we face the problem of the “Crusade” began by the Bushes a few decades ago when oil became a religious affair, masking the real issue who controls the OIL, the sloppy continuation of failed policies, as far back as the Viet Nam War, has killed and wasted so much of what is good in America.
I believe Jim Webb was proposing American leadership focus on a single country, setting an example of how we would want to be treated, on how we expect the fair play to be on the individual level not the corporate level, some form or other would be a good first step.
We have chaos with the East, the Middle East is in crusade like religious revolution, the Chinese are fighting to remain a communist society full of shameless greed, denying freedoms wherever they tread their inferior goods. The Russians remain feudal with nuclear power, a racist regime.
Getting one foreign policy right like focusing on the Chinese is Webb’s contribution to the dialogue of who and how our next President must lead.
