I have been interviewing family and friends who live along the Gulf of Mexico coast in Louisiana and Mississippi. Many of them had been working on shrimp boats before May 1, 2010 and a cousin is a shrimp boat owner. I have also spoken at length with two RN’s working at a Gulf coast Emergency Room and an Emergency Clinic who are close family friends. I am basing what follows on their observations and knowledge along with my own personal research.

A cousin who owns his own shrimp boat was hired by BP to assist with oil boom and cleanup operations. Other family members were also hired and have been his crew while undertaking BP boom and cleanup assistance operations. They were all forced to sign agreements not to publicly speak about their work or anything about BP operations. Their legal agreements do not mention anything about speaking openly to their families.

STAGE ONE: THE BLUE FLU a/k/a BP Flu

Every one of those working on the shrimp boat have suffered from flu-like symptoms since the end of May, 2010. This includes migraine headaches, eye aches, joint aches, ear aches, severe coughing bouts, fevers, vomiting, and swollen glands (especially in the neck). These same symptoms are being seen in the coastal ER’s as well. But as family and the RN’s have confirmed, these symptoms are not caused by any viral flu. This is not the same as the Asian Flu or any other viral flu bug. These symptoms are directly caused by a lack of oxygen due to airborne chemicals and toxic gases.

Most family members who work and live further inland have not yet encountered these symptoms since their jobs are indoors where recirculating air conditioning systems isolate them from constant outdoor air exposure. They also drive to/from work with the recirculating A/C system on to keep cool. The same applies when they are in their air conditioned homes. But those who do work outdoors 10-20 miles inland have recently experienced many of the same flu-like symptoms as those in the family who are working on the boats.

According to the ER nurses, in the southern Mississippi and Louisiana areas there have been more than 600 cases of what their staffs have appropriately named the “BP flu”. The vast majority of these “flu” cases are with those people who are working along the coast, as well as further offshore, on boats; and those who live along the southernmost areas along the Gulf of Mexico. One might initially think – based on mainstream media reports – that these flu-like symptoms are nothing to be overly concerned about. This is not a matter of ‘take two aspirins and call me in the morning’. Nothing could be further from the truth.

As reported by researchers at Columbia Univ.’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness (NCDP) in late July 2010, more than 40 percent of adults living within ten miles of the coast say they have experienced direct exposure to the oil spill or clean-up effort. Within this group, nearly 40 percent reported physical symptoms of skin irritations and respiratory problems.

    Here in Austin, our Edwards auquifer is poisoned every time we get rain in from the gulf. People who drink the tap water in the first few days afterwards are getting sick with flu and pneumonia like symptom.
