If you don’t relish the idea of eating bugs, poop burgers, fake meat and gmo vegetables grown without soil… you better wake up.
They are attacking our food supply in every way possible. This “accident” in East Palestine was no accident. It was a deliberate attack on our food supply.
CHECK OUT THESE MAPS…they tell the story. Now, I was not able to find a current map of all organic farms and livestock, by viewing the map from 2016 you can see where the majority of them are likely to be located due to favorable weather, soil and water supply.
We need to be watchdogs of all industry. Nuclear, Electric, Gas, Chemical. We need to watch the air and the water for signs of pollutants, of strange sights, smells and sounds. Watch the plant and animal life for signs of distress. We need to make our needs, desires and concerns known to our representatives and our government officials. We need to hold the Media responsible to be honest and forthcoming with their reporting. We need most of all to pray. Seek the Lord. He is the only one who can bring about CHANGE for the good.
I don’t know about you, but if I have to don a hazmat suit and gas mask to just to stay alive… I am not interested!! If I cant’ eat what GOD created…I don’t really care to eat. I have no appetite for meat grown in a petrie dish. or milk and cheese made of plant matter, or genetically modified vegetables grown with or without soil. I want to enjoy the world as GOD created it. I LIKE IT REAL. I LIVE FOR TRUTH.

THIS IS A MAJOR ATTACK ON OUR FOOD SUPPLY
OHIO CHEMICAL DISASTER THAT WILL NOT STOP
In the map below the red balloon points to East Palestine. You can see the strategic location to affect the entire growing area.
As I have already shown, the HUGE plume of smoke that rose up from the “controlled burn” formed the two faced GOD JANUS you can see the two mouths facing east and west, wide open and blowing the chemical filled cloud eastward and westward.
Of course what makes this particular location the most strategic spot possible is the dependence on the wind to spread the poisons is not required. East Palestine is a perfect location for affecting our entire water supply. Check out the river system on the map below.
Between the poisons, the poisons in the water, and the poisons that settled to the ground their will be no escaping the effects of this catastrophe. Just for good measure they made sure to drive dozens of trains over the tracks before the clean up to kick up the poisonous dust, which deposited on the cars and the wheels to be spread throughout the land as the trains continued on their way.

2 weeks, 4 days ago
DARLINGTON, Pa. — Dave Anderson hadn’t planned to leave that night, but then his son came in the house and said things outside had gotten bad. When Anderson went outside, he noticed his tongue was tingling. Days later it would still feel strange, like it had been scalded, he said.
About 4 miles away in neighboring East Palestine, Ohio, a hazardous chemical vinyl chloride was burning, sending a mushroom cloud of black smoke and unknown toxins high into the air. The chemical had been released purposefully from five derailed train cars and set on fire Feb. 6, a move made to avoid a catastrophic explosion, authorities said.
Over at Anderson’s Echo Valley Farm, in Darlington, the smog from the burn descended over their home and barns. Anderson decided then that his family needed to leave. They stayed at his daughter’s home, in Petersburg, Ohio, for the night.
When he and his wife returned home the next morning, the air had cleared. Their cattle seemed all right, all things considered, although a few had loose stool.
There was one thing, though. A black residue coated the vehicles they’d left behind. Anderson said he wiped the soot off with clean towels and bagged the towels for safekeeping.
“If we want to find out what it is and what just happened, that’s probably the best sample we’re going to get,” Anderson said.
• • •
Though government officials continue to reassure residents of East Palestine and its rural neighbors in Pennsylvania that the air, water and soil are safe after about 50 train cars derailed and some caught fire on Feb. 3, many people have doubts and concerns about the future.
Evacuated residents were allowed to return home two days after the controlled vent and burn. Air quality tests and tests of municipal water sources showed things were safe, but some people experienced health issues, including headaches, rashes and difficulty breathing. There hasn’t been a good answer from authorities to explain why this is going on.
As things quiet down and answers remain elusive, people are thinking about the future, particularly rural residents in the area just outside the area of focus for remediation efforts. What will this derailment and chemical release mean for their health, their animals and their land years from now?
Anderson began calling his state representative and senator’s offices the day after the vent and burn to get information. He called the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. He called the Environmental Protection Agency. He left messages everywhere and received no returned calls.
“Menus and recordings is all you get,” he said.
Anderson raises Angus beef cattle on his farm and sells grassfed freezer beef to local customers. He has seven children, ranging in age from 14 to 28. Six of his children are still living at home.
He wanted to get environmental testing done at his farm to ensure that things were OK. It was unclear what residents living outside the 1-mile evacuation area needed to be concerned about, if anything, but after seeing the soot on his cars, Anderson wanted to know what was in it.
A major concern now is dioxins, a group of chemical compounds created by burning wood, oil, coal and waste. It’s also created from some industrial processes, like bleaching pulp and paper. Cigarette smoke also contains small amounts of dioxin.
It’s not clear whether dioxin was released during the vinyl chloride burn, but scientists say it’s likely. Ohio’s U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and J.D. Vance sent a letter to the state’s environmental protection agency last week expressing concerns about dioxins and called for soil testing.
Dioxins are highly toxic and can cause cancer, reproductive and developmental problems and interfere with hormones, according to an EPA.
Dioxin is already found at background levels in soil, from many years of humans burning things, said Murray McBride, a soil chemist and professor emeritus at Cornell University. It attaches itself to organic matter.
“We would see maybe 3 or 5, maybe 10 parts per trillion of dioxin in surface soil,” McBride said.
The compounds accumulate in fatty tissue of animals and the EPA estimates 90% of human exposure is from eating animal fats, meat and dairy.
Dioxin is not soluble in water and doesn’t break down easily. That’s the good news, as it won’t be taken up by plants. So, presumably animals grazing on forages should be OK, as long as the dust particles containing the dioxins stay put in the soil, McBride said. It has a half life of about 10 years, McBride said. The problem would come in if strong winds or heavy rains disturb the dioxin particles and splash them up onto the leaves of the plants.
All of this is only a concern for local farmers if the level of dioxin released into the environment is higher than typical and “safe” levels of background exposure. But no one knows that because the EPA isn’t testing for dioxin. Debra Shore, regional EPA administrator, told Pittsburgh TV station WTAE during a press conference Feb. 27 in East Palestine that they were not testing for the compounds because they didn’t have previous data to compare new test results against.
“We don’t have baseline information for dioxins — they are ubiquitous in the environment — they can be caused by wildfires, by backyard grilling, by a host of other normal activities in human life and without that information it would be hard to attribute any level to the derailment,” Shore said.

Other environmental testing and health monitoring is ongoing. The Pennsylvania DEP said over the weekend it had tested 13 out of 16 private residential water wells within a mile of the derailment. Results were expected back sometime this week.
DEP representatives told one resident they would be doing extensive water and soil testing at her property within the 1-mile radius, but it wasn’t clear what was being tested for in the soil. The DEP did not respond to a request for clarification.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources gave an updated number of aquatic species killed as a result of the chemical contamination in local stream – 2,938. ODNR director Mary Mertz said during a Feb. 23 press conference said about 2,200 of those animals killed were small minnows.
From their sampling, the ODNR calculated that about 38,222 minnows were likely killed in the 5-mile span of waterway from the derailment site downstream to where the streams hit Little Beaver Creek. About 5,500 other aquatic life was estimated to have been killed, including small fish, crayfish, amphibians and macroinvertebrates.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced Feb. 27 it is opening a health resource center in Darlington Township, for residents who have concerns about health impacts from the derailment. There will also be representatives from the DEP and Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to answer questions. The Ohio Department of Health opened a health clinic in East Palestine last week for residents, staffed by registered nurses and mental health specialists.

Two days after calling around and getting nowhere, Anderson and a neighbor, Andrew Erdos, reached out to a law firm to see if they could help somehow. Anderson said once they explained their concern, the law firm — Grant and Eisenhofer — sent representatives out immediately to get samples from their soil, ponds and well water.
“That information, whether it’s harmful to be here, to me is critical for whether I can sell my cows,” Anderson said. “Without knowing and having the information, I can’t make decisions.”
Anderson and Erdos filed a class action lawsuit against Norfolk Southern, calling for a medical monitoring program and a medical monitoring fund for residents within 30 miles of the derailment site. Anderson said filing a lawsuit was the best way he could find to get answers, since he wasn’t getting a response from any state or federal agencies or officials.
“I had four beef that were supposed to go to the butcher Feb. 20. I held them back,” he said.
One of his customers also called to say they didn’t want the whole beef they ordered, because of the derailment being so close to the farm. They had concerns, and Anderson understood. He arranged for another farmer, who lives and raises animals much further away, to fill his beef orders.
His gut tells him the environment is all right. He tries to be optimistic, but he wants to know for sure.
“I hope these tests come back in a way that no one’s life changes even a little,” Anderson said. “But when you’re talking about your kids, ‘I think it’s OK’ isn’t good enough.”

Train Derailment Creates Uncertainty for Farmers
Tom Venesky, email@example.com / Mar 3, 2023
The scene Steve Montgomery witnessed from the window of his home Feb. 6 is a sight he’ll never forget.
It was late in the day when officials decided to conduct a controlled burn on one of the derailed train cars in East Palestine, Ohio. The car was carrying vinyl chloride, an industrial chemical used to make plastic products, and officials determined a planned fire was the best way to avoid an explosion.
Montgomery, whose farm in Columbiana, Ohio, is about 8 miles away, described it as remarkably dramatic.
“It was really crazy. I never saw anything like it,” said Montgomery, who is the executive director of the nonprofit Lamppost Farm.
“The cloud just kept billowing. It was eerie.”
Lamppost Farm sells grass-fed beef and lamb, along with pastured pork, poultry and free-range eggs. Being dependent on the land to raise livestock and produce meat for customers, Montgomery wondered if the chemicals and the billowing black smoke would compromise the farm’s products, which are raised with a focus on healthy soil and clean water.
While the farm is fairly close to the derailment site, it is upstream and upwind from East Palestine.
“That plays into our favor,” Montgomery said, adding the farm will have water and soil testing conducted as a precautionary measure. The testing, he said, will likely continue for several years.
Meanwhile, farms like Lamppost are in damage control mode with clientele. Montgomery said he’s received numerous inquiries from customers about the safety of the farm’s products.
“With the exception of our eggs, all of the meat that is in the freezers was raised and produced in 2022, prior to this incident,” he said.
The East Palestine derailment has attracted significant attention as residents — and social-media denizens — worry the rupture could cause long-term problems for locals and people downwind.
So far state and federal agencies say they have found little cause for concern.
No homes have tested positive for derailment-related pollutants, and air samples remain below action thresholds for chemicals of concern, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Feb. 24.
About 120 state and federal personnel have been responding to the incident.
Jake Kristophel’s farm in Volant, Pennsylvania, is about 25 miles northeast of East Palestine. When the controlled burn took place, he said, the smoke drifted to the northwest. Still, he is concerned about the potential fallout of chemicals — mainly dioxins — onto his soil, and he’s contacting labs to have tests conducted.
Like Montgomery’s operation, Kristophel’s Fallen Aspen Farm raises pastured pork, grass-fed lamb and free-range poultry, so soil health is his main concern.
“I’m not one to get too worked up, but I’m trying to provide a product that is nutrient-dense and good for you,” Kristophel said. “I don’t think I have a lot to be worried about, but I am being extra cautious. It’s just concerning.”
Mike Kovach’s Walnut Hill Farm is approximately 30 miles northeast of East Palestine. Kovach said the train derailment is on the minds of many farmers in his area, but he’s optimistic that things will work out for the best.
Kovach, president of the Pennsylvania Farmers Union, said he is not aware of any farmers being adversely affected by chemicals released by the derailment.
“The day of the burn, the prevailing winds never shifted, so we’re lucky in that regard,” Kovach said. “If it had come out of the southwest, we could’ve been in trouble.”
Jordan Hoewischer, Ohio Farm Bureau’s director of water quality and research, said it’s going to take time to unravel the true impact of the incident on agriculture.
“Our members are concerned, obviously, with long-term effects of their alfalfa fields and things like that that might have been exposed to particulates or anything from the air, but I really think it’s probably too soon to understand what’s all out there,” he said. “We really don’t have a clear picture right now of any short- or long-term effects.”
Christopher Reddy, an environmental chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, has studied oil spills and other environmental crises for nearly three decades. He said the chemicals released in the East Palestine incident are not in the same category as DDT or fluorinated compounds because they’re not as long-lived.
The East Palestine situation was still complex at the onset, and when fire was introduced, the chemical release became even more complicated.
“The big question is, when you burn chemicals, there is potential to make chlorinated dioxins, which are associated with Agent Orange,” Reddy said. “Whether it happened with this event, I don’t know.”
Dioxins are a group of carcinogenic chemicals that persist in the environment.
In the case of Agent Orange, dioxins were a manufacturing byproduct and contaminant of a chemical used in the Vietnam War-era defoliant.
That chemical, 2,4,5-T, has been banned since the 1980s and is not listed on the manifest of the derailed cars.
According to Pennsylvania’s Department of Health and Department of Environmental Protection, five of the cars in the derailment carried vinyl chloride. When exposed to fire, vinyl chloride breaks down into hydrogen chloride and phosgene.
The former rapidly disassociates in water, making health problems unlikely for livestock grazing on grass in the affected area. Phosgene can evaporate in the air or pass through the soil and break down in water, and neither chemical accumulates in the food chain.
These chemicals may not present a lasting issue for local farmers, but the smoke has.
Cliff Wallace, president of the Beaver/Lawrence Farm Bureau, said smoke was visible for days from his home near Bessemer, Pennsylvania. The hills and valleys of the region directed the pollution, he said.
“The plume went up and started to follow the valleys,” Wallace said. “It settled.”
And farmers noticed.
According to Wallace, on the day of the controlled burn, one dairy farm in the area was so inundated with smoke that the doors on each end of the barn had to be opened for ventilation.
Another farmer closer to the plume penned his beef cows inside a barn, but the plume became so strong that one calf died of smoke inhalation, Wallace said.
Another farmer in Beaver County had four steers scheduled for processing, and one customer backed out because the animals were exposed to the smoke.
Perhaps the biggest concern is the uncertainty.
“We don’t think there’s a problem, but we want to know for sure,” Wallace said. “We have some vegetable producers, beef and dairy, and they’d like to have soil tests taken. It would really make the small producers in our area feel better to have a clean bill of health.”
If soil testing occurs and contaminants are discovered, the door opens to another question.
“What happens is these people can no longer make a living from that farm. Will these farms be bought out at a fair price?” asked John Stock, sustainable agriculture educator with the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association. “It would be great to have transparency with testing, but a lot of farms don’t have a baseline for these contaminants.”
If airborne contaminants are found in a soil test, Stock said it’s unlikely the finding would jeopardize organic certification standards. The farmer didn’t intentionally apply the contaminants, he said, and the occurrence was out of their control.
As for contaminated water used for irrigation, Stock said an affected farmer may have to change water sources or use filtration.
“The farmer shouldn’t be penalized for this unfortunate and unique situation,” Stock said. “It’s going to have an impact on these farms, and it’s a reality that impacts all of us.”
