Second New Oil Related 'Mystery' Illness Named (video)

Click on this video link to hear about a 'mysterious' new illness plaguing Gulf oil victims . The list of new illnesses is growing rapidly as more and more people are exposed to the toxic mess spreading through the Gulf. I really don't know what is so mysterious about it- People are not supposed to soak in oil, drink it or breath it. It's that simple. When they do they sicken and die. If the public health officials can't figure that out then you better figure it out for yourself and get the hell out of there before it's too late. Because the same health officials don't have a clue as to what to do to help you if you do come down with their so-called 'mysterious illness'.


Second New Illness Named: Toxicant Induced Loss of Tolerance (TILT)
SAN ANTONIO -- For weeks now, local hospitals have tracked patients with suspicious symptoms coming in from the gulf coast. Doctors are having trouble distinguishing it from the flu."What makes it challenging is that patients show up with non-specific symptoms. Headaches, fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, upset stomach," lists Dr. Claudia Miller at UT Health Science Center.The illness is called "TILT," or Toxicant-Induced Loss of Tolerance. Patients lose tolerance to household products, medication, or even food after being exposed to chemicals, like burning oil, toxic fumes, or dispersants from the spill."Things like diesel fuel, exposure to fragrances, cleaning agents that never bothered them before suddenly bother them," adds Dr. Miller.TILT has been difficult to track because symptoms are similar to the flu. Currently, Dr. Miller is educating primary care doctors on how to spot and treat the illness before it gets worse. Though it's not contagious, the best cure right now is staying away from affected areas."Be sure to wear protective equipment and stay out of areas with smell, if [you] feel sick," Dr. Miller says. "The smells are usually chemicals that can make them ill."Those who are most at risk are pregnant women and patients with prior medical problems, like asthma.
