low birth weight

Postby somebody » Thu Dec 29, 2005 6:24 pm

I have been wondering about low birth weight lately too. Of the 6 new mothers (in their mid 20's) that I know and are NOT anywhere near living in poverty, but are all above middle income.... all except 1 had babies that were under 7 lbs! One was in the 5lb range. In the mid- 70's babies seemed to me to weight in the 7+ and up to 9lbs routinely! My son weighed 8lb 15oz.... and I was a small, thin (the good ole days) 21 yr old, not a big woman at all. The last time that I'd heard of these kind of birth weights, were when the baby boomers were born. It has me concerned and I've wanted to get some reliable links for this info... if they exist. The thought that we all might be so screwed by DU spreading across the world... is really a thought beyond belief! But that's what I usually say about this cabal's actions.... so maybe I should take that as a warning, that it is beginning to happen. expletive! <p></p><i></i>

study on toxic effects on low birth weight

Postby somebody » Thu Dec 29, 2005 7:24 pm

<!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Birth Weight Reduction Associated with Residence near a Hazardous Waste Landfill.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->Journal of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences<br>Volume 105, Number 8<br>August 1997<br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>The Lipari Landfill is a 15-acre site located in Mantua Township, Gloucester Country, New Jersey, and borders the towns of Pitman, Glassboro, and Harrison. The landfill is ranked number one on the EPA’s National Priority List. In 1958 the site was first excavated as a source of sand and gravel, leaving an empty pit that was later backfilled with municipal refuse, household wastes, liquid and semisolid chemical wastes, and other industrial wastes. The landfill operated until 1971 and accepted an estimated 12,000 cubic yards of solid waste and 2.9 million gallons of liquid chemical waste. Liquid wastes were emptied from containers and dumped into the landfill from 1958 to 1969, and solid wastes were disposed of until May 1971 (1).<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>The decrease in average birth weight for Area 1A was dramatic over the 10 years from the end of 1965 to the end of 1975, when average birth weight dropped 189 g. This time frame includes the documented period of heaviest dumping of hazardous chemicals in the landfill (1) and the postulated period of greatest potential for exposures to nearby residents. After 1975, Area 1A’s average birth weight rebounded over 300 g and was substantially higher (163 g) than the control population.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><br>I am now believing that it is not a problem of education, ie. poverty. 4 of the 6 new mom's I mention in the above post, are college grads! It is contamination. Be it DU, toxins in our water, or a bigger monster like DU.<br>And the PTB would like us to belive that they're not doing it, but put the blame on poverty. Something very serious is going on here. DU needs to be THE story of this next year. <p></p><i></i>

Let's collate this documentation...

...and get one of the few brave Dems like Kucinich to make the case that Republican Big Business is the terrorist organization that has dirty-bombed America.<br><br>This is how we must think and react in what's left of the public discourse.<br><br>Fascists promote the terrorist-fighting propaganda so let us use it right back at 'em. <p></p><i></i>

You've got that right, Manatee. Lets get this spread all over the internet and make it the big issue that it is. Excellent statement... they have dirty-bombed America! Time to get the word out to everyone. <br>It's apparently been known since 1995. <br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://southmovement.alphalink.com.au/antiwar/depleted.htm">southmovement.alphalink.c...pleted.htm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>"The use of Depleted Uranium (DU) armour piercing shells by U.S. forces in the 1991 Gulf War was uncovered by the German professor, Dr. Siegwart-Horst Gunther. A survivor of world war and internment in a Nazi concentration camp, Dr. Gunther is a tireless campaigner in the struggle to highlight the little-reported and ongoing human suffering resulting from the Gulf War. We reprint a South movement interview of professor Gunther in Nov 1995." <p></p><i></i>

I read that, thanks.<br><br>I tried some of the other links at the site and they'd been taken over by Gulf War paraphenalia hawkers selling through eBay.<br><br>Someone doesn't want this info to get around. So that's we must do. <p></p><i></i>
