Ohio train derailment and toxic chemical spill: Mike Adams says nothing comes close to toxicity of dioxins
By Belle Carter // Feb 24, 2023

An investigative reporter who specializes in corporate fraud and toxic torts litigation revealed that the combusted chlorinated compounds at the East Palestine derailment site exposed the air, water and ground as well as people, animals and other living organisms to a deadly and toxic chemical "soup" called dioxin.

In his Substack account, Eric Francis Coppolino said said what happened to the train wreck was that both chlorinated chemicals and ordinary cargo burned at the same time, which multiplied that harmful effect. The ash pit and the plume of smoke that spread were certain to contain chlorinated dioxins.

During a recent podcast, Health Ranger Mike Adams lauded Coppolino's contribution in the study of this highly damaging chemical.

"Nothing comes close to the toxicity of dioxins," Adams said. "And what scientists have come to realize is that there is literally no safe level of exposure. Even if you're exposed to one quadrillionth of a gram, you will suffer negative effects."

Worse, dioxins are classified as persistent pollutants and forever chemicals.

"They are also called the perfect poison. They simply don't degrade and have chlorine atoms on the four corners, if you're looking at a diagram of the molecule. These chlorine atoms make this thing armored so nothing can come in and mess with the molecule," Adams said.

And that's not all because, according to Adams, dioxins are bioaccumulative. "It builds up in fat tissues and through the food chain. The cows eat the grass that's covered with dioxins, which ends up in beef, milk, cheese and dairy. And then humans eat that and then they accumulate the dioxins. It just keeps getting more and more concentrated as you move up the food chain," he explained, adding that people living in East Palestine or practically the whole northeast quadrant of the state of Ohio and the northwest section of Pennsylvania and probably New York State and Canada should be wary of being "indirectly" exposed.

Meanwhile, Coppolino called out President Joe Biden's administration to stop downplaying and covering up the real situation. (Related: Government orders Norfolk Southern to pay for train derailment cleanup costs (but the EPA still won't mention dioxins.)

"The same playbook shows up over and over again: minimizing the dangers; testing irregularities, including 'losing' samples or results; testing for the wrong chemicals; propping up shills to say everything is safe; referring to or creating fraudulent studies; creating endless delays; and a few others you will come to recognize," he wrote. "Then, sadly, in most instances, the public tends to jump on board and accepts reassurance [sic] pretend there is not a problem, as most people cannot wrap their minds around the nature of a substance measured in quadrillionths of a gram (femtograms)."

Adams: Stop producing chlorinated compounds

Adams pointed out that as long as manufacturers keep producing consumer products with chlorinated compounds, "we are piling toxicity layer upon layer in our landfills, soils and our food supply."

He explained that America is a "throwaway society" – meaning, people generate all kinds of stuff with chlorinated compounds, use them for a while, dump them in landfills and even get them incinerated.

"When these are dumped in the landfill, or let's say if they're incinerated, you're going to create dioxins from the chlorinated compounds. Or if there's a house fire, the PVC or cookware that's burned up in the house fire actually generates dioxins, which just goes right up into the air and spread all over the place," Adams specified.

While it may be difficult to do away with the said compounds because they are actually highly useful in industrial processes, Adams said there are some things people can do to at least "substitute" the products that use them.

For example, you can stop using PVC for plumbing and instead start using PEX piping or crosslinked polyethylene. "PVC is crazy toxic while PEX is just normal trash, nowhere near as toxic if you set it on fire," he noted. "There are things we can do as a society that we need to make some decisions about. And we need to understand what it takes to eliminate dioxins."
