Toxicologists: Corexit “Ruptures Red Blood Cells, Causes Internal Bleeding”, “Allows Crude Oil to Penetrate “Into The Cells” and “Every Organ System”

The chemical Corexit which is what BP is pumping into the Gulf is toxic.  It is less effective than other dispersants, and actually worsening the damage caused by this ecological disaster.

Dr. Shaw told CNN:

              If I can tell you what happens — because I was in the oil — to people…

Shrimpers throwing their nets into water… [then] water from the nets splashed on his skin. …

[He experienced a] headache that lasted 3 weeks… heart palpitations… muscle spasms… bleeding from the rectum…

And that’s what that Corexit does, it ruptures red blood cells, causes internal bleeding, and liver and kidney damage. …

This stuff is so toxic combined… not the oil or dispersants alone. …

Very, very toxic and goes right through skin.

***

The reason this is so toxic is because of these solvents [from dispersant] that penetrate the skin of anything that’s going through the dispersed oil takes the oil into the cellstakes the oil into the organs… and this stuff is toxic to every organ system in the body. …

Dr. Chris Pinetich, who has a background in testing the effects of chemicals on fish, says that Corexit disrupts cell membranes
