shows a picture of somebody in Mayflower walking through crude oil as if it was water. He will get cancer.
Crude oil contains BENZENE and benzene causes cancer. Do not touch crude oil. Do not inhale benzene. Benzene is used to give cancer to guinea pigs. Warn everybody.
Wikipedia says:'One way of understanding the carcinogenic effects of benzene is by examining the products of biological oxidation. Pure benzene, for example, oxidizes in the body to produce an epoxide, benzene oxide, which is not excreted readily and can interact with DNA to produce harmful mutations."
"OSHA regulates levels of benzene in the workplace. The maximum allowable amount of benzene in workroom air during an 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek is 1 ppm. Because benzene can cause cancer, NIOSH recommends that all workers wear special breathing equipment when they are likely to be exposed to benzene at levels exceeding the recommended (8-hour) exposure limit of 0.1 ppm."
"Benzene increases the risk of cancer and other illnesses. Benzene is a notorious cause of bone marrow failure. Substantial quantities of epidemiologic, clinical, and laboratory data link benzene to aplastic anemia, acute leukemia, and bone marrow abnormalities. The specific hematologic malignancies that benzene is associated with include: acute myeloid leukemia (AML), aplastic anemia, myleodysplastic syndrome (MDS), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)."
"Benzene targets liver, kidney, lung, heart and the brain and can cause DNA strand breaks, chromosomal damage, etc."
Benzene is a very powerful carcinogen.
"List of IARC [International Agency for Research on Cancer] Group 1 carcinogens
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" includes Benzene in the list of the most carcinogenic chemicals.
Those houses and the whole town are uninhabitable forever. Exxon-Mobil should build them a new town and pay for their cancer treatment and pay punitive damages.
