Environment Pollution / Air Quality By Ayda Walsh Share Tweet Share Share #TEFLON #BoycottDUPONT #CHEMOURS #DARK WATERS #TheDevilWeKnow #Rob Billsott #C8 #PFOS #PFOA #TOXINS #CHAMICALS2 Videos - One Movie based on Real Events (Dark Waters) and the Documentary(The Devil We Know)! Today we watched a documentary called the Devil we know on Netflix. It is very sad to see how the corporations as well as the government agencies such as the EPA do not seem to care about people and only about profits. We later watched it in a MOVIE format on Amazon Prime called "DARK WATERS" - excellent movie!This documentary was about - specifically about manufacturing of Teflon and how they had the health effects and also knowing the impact it would have DuPont still chose to dump the chemicals into the water supply. Of course as the movies were hitting the media - they decided to change and update their website with changes they are making! The documentary is very well done with great stories. It starts off talking about a farmer who allowed Dupont to purchase land next to his farm land and ended up losing all of his cattle within two years. But he was able to document dead animals, dead cattle, dead fish in the water not to mention the fact that both him and his wife both got diagnosed with cancer. In the Movie, you see the story - the documentary shows some clips - actual clips from his videos. Dupont purchased this land so they could use it as a way to dump the waste water from creating the Teflon chemicals. They purchased these chemicals from 3M who reported potential birth defects to Dupont – during an interview day interview at Dupont representative who states that the report only says danger to fetus and not to women exclamation"We don't Produce these Chemicals" - 3M does! But DuPont chose to DUMP it into the Air and Water knowing the harm it causes!Not only did Dupont choose to dump waste water full of hazardous material into the water supply but they have also ignored the fact that it was going in the air. Not even The dead birds falling from the sky deterred them from continuing to create this product.This product is not just a nonstick cooking pans but are also used in so many different materials that the documentary states it is in 99% of the population is blood. These chemicals are used in airplanes, cars, food wraps, popcorn bags, as part of clothing to make them waterproof and oil proof, as well as many household items such as Scotchguqrd and stain master carpets!They referred to it as the devils piss!COURAGEOUS PEOPLE SHARE THEIR STORIES - Like Bucky Bailey!His Mother worked at Dupont - They knew chemicals were bad for Fetus' - never shared!It is so sad to watch the people that work for and at Dupont defend this company knowing what they know. I don’t know how people can live with themselves knowing what they are doing is so harmful not only to the employees that work there but also the land animals and the entire world because once it becomes airborne it is all over the world. Their comments are amazing to listen to in this documentary. I recommend everyone watch this. Their comment that “risk is relative” is so disheartening and horrible.These chemicals are not only harmful but they BIO-Accumulate and are BIO_Persistent which means nothing can break them down. And a documentary you will see newborns whose blood contain these chemicals. C8 chemicals, PFOA’s and PFOS - Are just some of the chemical compounds mixed in the soup of toxic materials that we expose ourselves to every single day. EPA was made aware of all the problems and I won’t go into all of the corrupt ways EPA was controlled and used by the compliance of Mike McCabe!(shame on you!)You will see people like Kathleen Forte and Uma Chowdry - DuPont workers shamefully defending DuPont knowing all of the problems and the reports and the potential issues that were outlined.SHAME ON YOU!Actual Footage of their videos in the Devil We Know #Kathleen Forte - Dupont Public RelationsWatch actual Footage of their lawyers knowingly hiding HEALTH impact info #Bernard Reilly - DuPont LawyerWatch actual Footage where he says they knew it was bad for Fetus but not for Women! #Bryce Karem - DuPont Medical Director!I really don’t know how people can sleep at night knowing what they know and what they have done to peoples lives. I hope that these people will watch this documentary and the people interviewed and how their lives have been impacted by this horrible cover-up and company!!!They were only a few people who were brave enough to show their battles and struggles. This documentary talks about the 70,000 people over seven years who were part of the study because the plaintiffs did not settle for $343 million but instead chose to have a study so that people would be aware of the impacts. I salute these people such as Joe Kieger ! It is because of people like him that we are made available this information. He could’ve taken the money and we would’ve never known about the impacts that ARE still be going on today !!!Yes you heard me right – out of the 88,000 chemicals that are officially registered and God only knows how many are unregistered chemicals that are being created and part of the secret sauce that they are not required to report. All of these chemicals impact us. To what level we don’t know until it is too late! Not only do we have a battle in our hands with all these chemical companies and manufacturing companies utilizing chemicals that are harmful to everyone but to be able to prove it is a year long battle with many attorneys and lives lost!! Many times we won’t know the impacts until it is too late!!These chemicals seep into the ground polluting our earth, spill into our waterways polluting our fish and marine life, are disbursed into the air which circulates around the world impacting everyone!!During the documentary you will see the six diseases that are linked officially after a seven-year study of 70,000 people and these are ;Testicular and kidney cancerUlcerative colitisThyroid diseasePreeclampsiaHigh cholesterolThese are the ones they could prove - but you will see others who suffered with many other issues as each of us will react differently!After this study EPA fined Dupont who makes $25 billion a year in sales just $16 million in fines! You can be the judge if that is fair. They didn’t cover how many people have died because it would be too hard to find out exact number and link it to the study exclamation but I hope all of the people that are involved in this company And also the new company that they have decided to hide under called “CHEMOURS” ( A spin off company they started) and who are now creating the modified version of these chemicals (GEN X & Others) to get away with it and what I mean by that is to get away with STILL producing it Still being put into the air and God only knows how they are dispersing of the new products/chemicals!!These are not going to end until people wake up and realize that they have a choice where they can do good in the world or they can choose to follow prophet irregardless of human life, irregardless of what it’s doing to our mother earth, to our marine life and seas and waterways, the air we breathe!![Check this out: An APP called "Buycott". " available for download on iPhone or Android that allows you to scan the barcode on any product and the free app will trace its ownership all the way to its top corporate parent company, including conglomerates like Koch Industries: Koch Brothers, Monsanto, Dupont, Johnson & Johnson ]As I study with Building Biology, and focus on earth friendly and healthy living, I find it so difficult for people to understand the toxic chemical soup we expose ourselves to every single day! How do we trust any government agency, any company who seems to put their profits ahead of everything else!! And it’s not just here in the US but we have to figure out a way to do this worldwide! But we can start in the US and become an example and revive our land and get back to healthy way of living and harvesting!!If you find yourself having medical issues - it could be so many things but just trying to figure out what may be impacting you is a personal detective work! this has been my journey on finding out unique ways of tapping into information that can help each and every individual on a quantum level!You can check out some of my videos and trainings where I show everyone what I have learned over the years and I hope it helps you!!We need to work together, teach each other, support each other with love and understanding. We need to band together and say NO to these companies who pollute our waters, airs and land with chemicals!We need to get back to the basics and understand that certain things are not good for us! We need to stand together and find people who will work with us on making people aware of these!!I am so very grateful for the people who have shared their stories in this documentary and the directors and people involved - who have spent the time and energy to put this documentary together so you and I can learn from it, grow from it and help others be aware!!TheDevilWeKnow.com - The netflix movie link here - https://www.netflix.com/title/80997719Dark Waters - Amazon Prime Movie link here - https://www.amazon.com/Dark-Waters-Mark-Ruffalo/dp/B081FJP1YNE.I.
