I really need a new category for the war on humanity. Anyway, I just want to jot down the interesting coincidences and any useful links about the chemical warfare happening in Ohio. I won’t repeat what the other news sites have already reported unless it’s relevant to another interesting point. I just want to point out the things that I found interesting. See bottom of post for detox options.

Ohio partners with MYID Medical Devices
In October 2022, East Palestine signed up for the new ‘MyID‘ medical service for free. Residents will “wear” a device. “It’s a medical device system that helps first responders provide care.” They are wearable devices that have QR codes, and an emergency responder will use their smartphone to access your medical information.

Netflix Movie about Ohio Train Derailment producing toxic cloud
White Noise (Netflix movie) Released in USA, August 2022, and on Netflix, December 2022. Filmed in Ohio and Cleveland. The movie is a comedy about a train accident that causes a cloud of chemical waste over the town. Residents are forced into quarantine, where the main characters have to try and escape “dangerous survivalists” from the camp. (02)

Freight Train Derailed
On February 3, 2023, a 150-car Norfolk Southern freight train carrying hazardous materials-vinyl chloride, butyl acrylate, ethylhexyl acrylate, and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (03) derailed along the Norfolk Southern Railway Fort Wayne Line in East Palestine, Ohio, United States. (04)
Flames 20m before derailment
Video footage shows derailed train in Palestine, Ohio, had flames or sparks coming off it 20 miles before derailment. Although a formal thorough investigation has started (that might take up to a year or more for the report), the preliminary cause seems to be an overheating wheel-bearing, leading to a fire, leading to the derailment. The crew received an alert indicating a mechanical issue and initiated the emergency breaks. (05)
Train length nearly 2 miles
150 Cars (60 feet each). Train was nearly 9,000 Feet Long (nearly 2 miles in length). Each Tanker car has the capacity of 30,000 US gallons (113,979L). 38 Trains came off the tracks with fire damaging an additional 12 cars. 20 Cars contained hazardous, explosive, or risky contents. (06)
10 of the rail cars containing hazardous chemicals were involved in a pileup of 50 cars, five of which contained vinyl chloride—a carcinogenic and flammable chemical.

Mandatory Evacuation
On February 6, DeWine and Shapiro ordered the mandatory evacuation of all residents within a 1-by-2-mile (1.6 by 3.2 km) area (07)
Feb 8, 2023
Reporter arrested
Police arrested reporter Evan Lambert for live reporting before the town’s press conference began. A police press release the next day says it was because he was reporting too loud. Body cam footage is “silent” in the first interaction, but subsequent timestamped videos show that he did nothing wrong and stopped immediately reporting when asked to, and the reporter is shocked at how things played out and grateful that it was recorded.

CDC updates Vinyl Chloride Tox Profile - drafted in January 2023
First official update in 17 years. CDC publishes a draft of the new safety information on the toxicological results of vinyl chloride. The last time this Toxicology Report for Vinyl Chloride was updated was (2006). (I’ve noticed some people are getting confused between the CDC “Pocket Guide“, which the page said was last ‘reviewed’ in Oct 2019), but the main toxicology report hasn’t been updated since 2006). (17)
The draft’s cover page says January 2023.
However, even though the new Vinyl Chloride document states that it is a draft written in January 2023, it was posted Feb 9, 2023 (derailment was Feb 3) along with three others: Trichloroethane, Cobalt, and Hexachloracyclohexane. (18) (19) (20) (21)
They were apparently drafts prepared in response to a mandate for the Administrator of ATSDR to prepare toxicological profiles for 275 hazardous substances that pose the most significant potential threat to human health in 2022. (22) (23) (24) (25)
So it’s possible drafts were requested specific to the timing of the derailment, that these were already in progress along with 275 other hazardous substances, or that these reports that “were already in progress” was requested “because” of the derailment… hard to know, so not necessarily a conspiracy, but interesting timing all the same.

CDC updates Vinyl Chloride FAQ
CDC changes the Vinyl Chloride FAQ (see Feb 6 2023 vs Feb 9 2023) which removes several things, including a big bold alert at the top of the page with a number to call if you are exposed warning of its hazardous nature and that it will harm you. It also removed a section on children stating that might affect growth and development, and that infants and young children might be more susceptible to vinyl chloride-induced cancer. (see below timeline for more)

Controlled Burn of five tanks spreads toxic chemicals across 3 states
Norfolk Southern emergency crews conducted a controlled release and burn of the five tanks of vinyl chloride into the air. (26)
A controlled-burn of the hazardous vinyl chloride cars sent a mushroom cloud of toxic smoke into the air, being caught by the wind, and crossing 3 states.
Emergency crews conducted a controlled burn of the spill at the request of state officials, (27) which released hydrogen chloride and phosgene into the air.
Phosgene used as weapon in WW1
Phosgene is extremely poisonous and was used as a chemical weapon during World War 1, where it was responsible for 85,000 deaths. Classified as Schedule 3 substance under the Chemical Weapons Convention. (28)

Norfolk Southern Compensation
On February 14, the company pledged a $1 million “community support fund”, as well as free air, water, and soil chemical testing. On February 16, the support fund was increased to $2.5 million. (29)

Town Hall Meeting
A town hall meeting was held on February 15 between residents and local, state and federal officials. Norfolk Southern representatives declined to attend due to a perceived physical threat. (30)

Hazmat Incidents

Norfolk Southern cuts costs, increases dangers
East Palestine Train Derailment: Aftermath of the Ohio Chemical Spill, chicken and fish are found dead, animals and humans getting sick. Lots of reports that the industry has cut costs to barely skeleton staff, have to check things in half-the-time, doubled the amount of cars, loosened up legalities regarding transporting toxic waste, and more.

Chickens dead

East Palestine Ohio Water Glowing Rainbow like you see on roads
Chemical engineering Professor, Dr. Eric Beckman from University of Pittsburgh, not far from Palestine Ohio, explains what’s going on and how very frightening this is. (33)

Sixth lawsuit claims 'controlled' chemical release worsened dangers
Sixth lawsuit claims ‘controlled’ chemical release worsened East Palestine situation (34) “…the railroad dumped more than 1.1 million pounds of vinyl chloride into the environment during the incident.” The lawsuit claims the amount of that emission of the toxic chemical was more than two times the total amount of vinyl chloride released by all U.S. industries annually.

Norfolk Southern gets residents to sign disclaimer holding them harmless
As part of their free air, water and soil chemical testing, Norfolk Southern “accidentally” adds a disclaimer to get residents to sign a “hold harmless agreement” in exchange for testing.

Mainstream Media downplays Dangers
News Media aren’t reporting “against” the Norfolk Southern Train so much as trying to downplay the dangers, and the NY Times even put out a propaganda piece trying to shift the anger of the public towards “Right-Wingers” instead of the companies responsible for this disaster. On the plus side, this kind of smear-campaign biased-reporting is waking more people up to the media. (38)
Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street
One possible reason the mainstream media are downplaying the Ohio Chemical Disaster… (39)

Detoxing Ohio Train Disaster

  • NAC: repairs body after PHOSGENE, ACROLEIN.
  • SULFORAPHANE: inhibits Hepatic Steatosis -known risk of VINYL CHLORIDE exposure (use brands EnduraCell or BROQ or make your own from broccoli sprouts)
  • CHLOROPHYLLIN: prevents toxin-induced Cancers (use sodium copper version)

Update: 26 April 2023 – Just watched this video, and it mentions a toxin that wasn’t mentioned when I was last looking at this. Very important video:
