Chemical industry lies and the “secret” papers that prove it

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

liquid-chemicals(NaturalHealth365) The publication of over 200,000 long-hidden documents is now blowing the lid off the corrupt and longstanding (criminal) relationship between regulatory federal agencies and chemical companies. Known as the “Poison Papers Project,” the collection and publication of the documents was initiated this year by Independent Science News and the Center for Media and Democracy – revealing decades of collusion between regulatory government agencies and biochemical industry to actively suppress information on chemical toxicity.

Find out how federal agencies conspired with chemical companies to hide toxin dangers from the public. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Jonathan Latham, PhD, director of the “Poison Papers” project, expose the secret documents that reveal years of collusion, deceit, and outright fraud – all aimed at deceiving the general public. If you are ready to learn about the stunning depths to which corporations and agencies descended — in order to hide the truth about dioxins and other poisons — you won’t want to miss this explosive show.

The Poison Papers prove that U.S. federal employees – at the highest levels – work to support chemical corporations

The documents collectively known as the Poison Papers – generated between the late 1960s and middle 1990s – consist of over 200,000 pages of study summaries, internal memos, meeting minutes, correspondence and sworn testimonies.

Author and activist Carol Van Strum began collecting and archiving the documents as a result of her 1974 attempt to stop the Forest Service from spraying 2,4,5-T (one of the ingredients in Agent Orange). Many of the documents were obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, with some being acquired through legal discovery in lawsuits against chemical corporations and various federal regulatory agencies.

The documents became public recently when the online publication The Intercept published an interview with Van Strum.
The scandal involves the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Defense – along with major chemical manufacturers such as Monsanto, Dow, Dupont and Union Carbine. In fact, Dr. Latham notes that the involvement extended to “every chemical company that existed at the time.”

The documents provide a wealth of evidence that both the EPA and the corporations were well aware of the extraordinary toxicity of many chemical products – and schemed to hide this information from the public. Get ready to be stunned, because the information we’re about to release – on the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour – is worse than you think. (Be informed – don’t miss this show)

One sickening example: Poison Papers show extensive proof of dioxin toxicity coverups

Dioxins, also known as TCDD, are a related group of persistent organic pollutants that accumulate in the food chain and are stored in fatty tissue of humans and animals. Long-time storage and improper disposal of industrial waste can cause this poison to be released into the environment, where it contaminates human and animal food supplies.

The International Agency for Cancer Research has classified dioxins as “known carcinogens” – with chronic exposure in animals known to cause several types of cancer. Dioxins, states Dr. Latham, may be behind the current “cancer epidemic” – and everyone has been exposed to these toxins to some degree.

Short-term exposure to high levels of dioxins can cause skin lesions and altered liver function. Long-term exposure is associated with immune system impairment, along with disruptions of the developing nervous system, the endocrine system and reproductive functions.

In an outrageous betrayal of trust, agencies not only failed to inform the public of the dangers of dioxins – but also suppressed evidence of fraudulent testing involving the toxins. Also concealed was the fact that dioxins were found in common household and personal products, such as coffee filters and diapers.

Simply put, these chemical companies are about to be exposed for the crimes they’ve committed against humanity. And, many people (in my opinion) need to be held accountable!

This week’s guest: Jonathan Latham, PhD, co-founder director of Bioscience Research Project

Discover the shocking truth about what the chemical industry is hiding from the public – Sun. Sept. 17

Jonathan Latham, PhD, is the editor of Independent Science News and the co-founder and executive director of the Bioscience Resource Project (BRP), a non-profit educational organization which conducts independent scientific analysis of genetic engineering and its risks. The BRP seeks to create a strong scientific foundation for healthy, just and ecologically sound food and agricultural systems.

Dr. Latham holds a Master’s Degree in Crop Genetics, as well as a Ph.D. in Virology. A past postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Genetics at University of Wisconsin Madison, Dr. Latham has published scientific papers in plant ecology, plant virology, genetics and genetic engineering. He is currently the director of the Poison Papers project, which publicizes documents of the chemical industry and its regulators.

    Does this means I can’t trust any industry? Perhaps it does as long as profit above all is the motivating force. More disturbing is I can’t trust the government agencies to look out for the public.

    We have corrupt companies and a corrupt government. As more information comes out we are going to see what many have suspected-the government agencies are not working for us. They along with the chemical companies are profiting off us.

    We are pawns in a very serious situation. What I want to know is what we can do about it. Getting this information out into the open is good, but does it change anything?

    The chemical companies hide behind advertising. Marketing and customer acquisition strategies are crafted with an eye on influencing the consumer. The payoff with these strategies means loyal consumers. All the negative information sometimes is forgotten as advertisements pollinates all media.

    I hope this changes as more and more information comes available.The beauty and personal care industry has gotten away with what appears to be murder. When you think of the negative affect of hair dye, air freshers, sunscreen, and cosmetics you have to wonder what price beauty.

    I have been listening to the program and was stunned to hear him say that LL Bean uses permethrin on their clothes. I just contacted LL Bean to see what they have to say. I have been a customer of them for a long time. Consequently, this info was deeply disturbing. It makes me also wonder about other well-known clothing companies as well. Time to get cracking and start investigating. I plan to begin asking if companies use chemicals to protect their fabrics, including those who claim to be Oeko-Tex (includes LL Bean). The more they hear from the public especially long-term customers, the more they will begin to take notice. The level of corruption is remarkably astounding. We have accepted their word far too long without questioning and holding them accountable. Time to act. Enough is enough! We have paid a massive health price for blindly accepting everything they tell us without due diligence. As for this person–NO more. As a side note, not being a paid subscriber, I won’t be able to share this program with others unless it is during the specified air time. That’s unfortunate as this program is extremely important for everyone to hear. Truly, an excellent, informative program!

    The chemical age is upon us. The spark of ingenuity isn’t one brilliant idea after another it is one profit making idea after another.
