.... information gathered... as a service to others...
"It hasn't been easy to find what was in the chemicals used during the
Exxon Valdez Oil Spill cleanup.
It seemed important to know, however,
because workers can't be properly helped with health issues
if they don't know what they were exposed to
...or even that they've been chemically poisoned.
Thus the website came into being... to help workers & their doctors save time
& focus on health care that will best benefit them.

We need to see in what ways the workers' are similar to each other
and dissimilar from others.
If you know any workers, please have them call 1-888-853-5333
The worst thing that ever happened after the Exxon Valdez oil spill was putting people in harm's way -
- in the fresh oil -
and most especially adding new experimental chemicals
- strong in poison - to further damage workers and the environment.
EPA made a big mistake when they allowed widespread use of chemicals to clean Alaska's beaches.
The Inipol EAP 22 that they settled upon was only 'technically' a microbe fertilizer
- it was more accurately a surfactant - like spray 'n washing the beaches.
Exxon bought the patent for the French Inipol, added chemicals & started using it
- Field testing and lab testing simultaneously 3-5 days later - @ Aug 1, 1989
There were a lot of other chemicals 'tried' before that.
The workers didn't have appropriate protective gear...
& they worked too long at a time...
& the poison in the chemicals was too strong!
Other workers, not expecting to be exposed to the chemicals - were, as well.
Workers were told repeatedly it was safe;
they continually say they saw no 'hazardous' warnings.
Workers need to ask their doctors to run special tests for chemicals in one's system
... & to most especially check the blood for hemolytic anemia or aplastic anemia
They need to learn a lifestyle of avoiding chemicals -
& teach it to their children as well:
... such as not drinking alcohol which speeds damage to the liver
...such as not using
Lysol Tub 'n Tile
& 409 Cleaner
which has the same type of chemicals
Workers need to concentrate on low sugar diets
& have their kidney and liver function checked regularly.

Symptoms Exxon Valdez Oil Spill cleanup workers may notice:
extreme, continual exhaustion,
violent outbursts they didn't have before this time."
Lack of motivation.
(General symptoms... very much like those of Gulf War Syndrome)

'A mother in the sense of one who cares for, as a mother does
.... one who nurtures in the manner of a mother.'
I hope that the information found helps the workers from being experimented on...
... I hope that the information will be a help to their living their lives in the best health possible
... & that others will not be harmed by chemicals in the future!
May we approach our leaders & ask for a ban on dispersants strong in poisons!
No more Inipol EAP 22! No Corexit!
Spread the word!
These workers need to be found.
They need publicity!
They need your prayers!
They don't even know that they are in a desperate situation.
As for the 'bioremediation' workers in particular,
I believe that what happened to them was criminal.
Based on the medical information Exxon had, and what they did with it,
these workers are due a lawsuit in the hundreds of millions of dollars...
