Depleted Uranium is Bad Stuff

Saturday 18 January 2014 kl. 09:47

The Wikipedia entry on Depleted Uranium gives you a sense of the divided opinion on it's use as well as a good overview of it's history. I also discovered this documentary on Youtube which gives good examples of the official story line and the evidence. You notice the advocates never give any evidence that they have spent time with people who have been exposed to DU on a battlefield.

A little bit of searching revealed this speech by Doug Rokke (also Youtube). Rokke was also featured in the documentary I linked but this speech is much more passionate and full of detail from his experiences in Iraq. He was an officer tasked with cleaning up the battlefield after the first gulf war. What you begin to realize as you listen to him is that this was an impossible task. Most of the men in his unit became sick and died from cancer or other complications.

The thing to realize about DU is that it is much more dangerous after it has been used. This is due to the creation of very small particles which are then inhaled by persons. Here is a discussion with Fairewinds' Arnie Gunderson. They are talking about particles emitted by the Fukashima disaster but it seems to me that the principle is the same.

As you understand how these munitions work, understand that they are highly preferred by all branches of the military. And they have been used in several conflicts in different areas of the world since the gulf war in 1991 where they were first used in conflict. Wherever they are used, they are creating a highly toxic contaminated area which is very difficult and expensive to clean up. What will be the price that we pay for using these?

 

Liposomal Vitamin C

The most important factor in effective use of vitamin c is to get a very large amount into the blood stream quickly. Dr. Robert Cathcart developed the idea of titration to bowl tolerance as a way of optimizing oral intake of vitamin c supplements to treat various diseases suggested on his chart. The main issue with this technique is that there is a lot of variability with different individuals according to age and other factors. An individual may reach bowl tolerance too early for the vit c to become effective.

A few days ago, this interesting article was linked on Lew Rockwell's site. It describes the effectiveness of vitamin C in a form known as Liposomal Vitamin C. Most interesting is the mention of the story covered by New Zealand 60 minutes of the man who recovered from a coma induced by flu using first intravenous vitamin C and then Liposomal vitamin C. Wikipedia has more detail of the Liposome.

 

Snow Storm

Here's a photo I took earlier in the day. There was probably around 6 inches of snow. Things look a bit crooked. I think I keyed off the tree on the far right to try and get things aligned vertically but you can see that there appears to be a depression around the house in the middle.

This photo is a bit later when the wind and snow picked up. It's much more dense but I tried to be more conscious of the vertical alignment.
