Perchlorate salts, a chemical compound containing the perchlorate ion, are produced industrially by the oxidation of solutions of sodium chlorate by electrolysis.

2004 EPA published a draft assessment which concludes that perchlorate is harmful to the human thyroid, particularly in infants, when concentration in drinking water exceed one part per billion (ppb).

FDA finds perchlorate contamination in nearly every one 104 milk samples taken from milk bought in retail stores in Arizona, California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

The average concentration of perchlorate in the milk samples is 5.76 parts per billion (ppb).

38% of the samples had levels over 6 ppb. Perchlorate is also found in 128 samples of lettuce from Arizona, California, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas.

The States of Maryland and Massachusetts adopted a safety limit on perchlorate in drinking water of 1 ppb.

California set a preliminary limit of 6 ppb for perchlorate in drinking water.

2005 Texas Tech University's Institute of Environmental and Human Health finds perchlorate in virtually all samples of women's breast milk at levels on average almost two times greater than in cow's milk.

The highest levels found in breast milk, 92 parts per billion (ppb) and 51 ppb came from two New Jersey women.

Samples exceeding 30 ppb were found in women from New Mexico, Missouri and Nebraska.

The average for all samples was 10.5 ppb.

The study found that a 9 pound baby drinking breast milk with 10.5 ppb of perchlorate would ingest more than double the amount of perchlorate deemed safe by a recent National Academy of Sciences (NAS) report.

The findings concern health experts because infants and fetuses are the most vulnerable to the thyroid-impairing effects of the chemical.

Perchlorate blocks the nutrient iodide and inhibits thyroid hormones, which are necessary for brain development and cellular growth of a fetus or infant.

A baby with impaired thyroid development may have neurological defects that result in lower IQ, mental retardation, loss of hearing and speech and motor skills deficits.

American women with low iodine levels exposed to a perchlorate concentration in the water of 4 parts per million, 11 million people in 26 states, have suppressed thyroid function which can lead to health problems in them and abnormal brain development in their offspring.

111,1 women tested had an average percholate level of 2.9 parts per million.

EPA has identified 395 sites throughout the country with ground water contaminated by perchlorate - over half of which are in California and Texas. Only 51 of these at this time are undergoing remediation.

2006 Suggested limit of percholate in drinking water, modified by the George Walker Bush to 25 ppb, is 10 times higher than it should be.

With any standard lower than 5 ppb, as research suggested, expected costs of cleanup to the DoD and several of its major contractors is staggering.

In San Bernardino, California, Lockheed Martin agrees to clean up perchlorate contaminated ground water.

Olin Corp is the liable party for perchlorate contamination in hundreds of drinking water wells in Santa Clara County, California.

The ten mile plume of contamination emanated from a former flare manufacturing plant Olin Corp. operated from 1955 to 1996.

Tests of Santa Clara wells have found some 227 wells with perchlorate above the states safety limit of 6 parts per billion.

Some wells had levels above 100 parts per billion.

Olin Industries

1898 Franklin Olin, along with his two sons John M. and Spencer, form Western Cartridge Company.

1916 Olin's make a fortune supplying ammunition during World War I under the brand name Western Cartridge Company.

1931 Olin's purchase the Winchester Company.

1944 Olin companies organized under a new corporate parent, Olin Industries, Inc.

1954 Olin Industries and Mathieson Chemical merge to form the Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation.

35,000 employees, 46 domestic and 17 foreign plants.

1969 Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation becomes Olin Corporation.

1980 Olin sells Winchester firearms to the firm's employees under the name US Repeating Arms Company but continues manufacturing ammunition.

2001 The ammunition business grows and remains strong after the invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria.

2005 John M. Olin Foundation closes and so did its father the Franklin W. Olin Foundation.

The New York-based John M. Olin Foundation , grew out of a family manufacturing business (chemical and munitions), funded right-wing "think tanks" including the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation and the Manhattan Institute for Public Policy Research.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
