Nanoparticles kills People

Nanotechnology (sometimes shortened to “nanotech”) is the study of manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally, nanotechnology deals with developing materials, devices, or other structures with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. Quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale.
Nanotechnology is considered a key technology for the future. Consequently, various governments have invested billions of dollars in its future. The United States has invested $3.7 billion through its National Nanotechnology Initiative followed by Japan with $750 million and the European Union $1.2 billion.
Minister Skvortsova states in her report that “extremely troubling signs” from India’s Bihar State were first noticed by Russian authorities on 16 June when over 18 children died in a single day bringing the death toll from this “mysterious disease” to 174. Unofficial sources, however, put the death toll to 203.
Coinciding with these mysterious child deaths, Minister Skvortsova says, was the near immediate closing of 2 textile mills in Bihar that were working under a contract with the Aryabhatta Knowledge University , one of the leading research centers for nanotechnology in India, where fabrics were being impregnated with silver nanoparticles.
Minister Skvortsova says in her report that the “commonality” between these child deaths and the closing of the 2 textile mills was the wastewater runoff these children played in where they were “more than likely” exposed to high levels of silver nanoparticles which led to a collapse of their body’s immune systems.
The danger of silver nanoparticles were first outlined by the New Scientist News Service in 2008 when they warned that the release of these particles could potentially disrupt helpful bacteria used in waste-water treatment facilities or endanger aquatic organisms in lakes and streams.
Unbeknownst to the vast majority of people are how widespread nanoparticles consumer products have become, and which the world’s foremost tracker of them called The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, now say numbers over 1,300. The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies further reports that “more products are based on nanoscale silver—used for its antimicrobial properties—than any other nanomaterial; 313 products (24 percent of the inventory) use silver nanoparticles.”
The most common product silver nanoparticles are used in are socks and which Bihar textile manufactures supply nearly 100% of the silk and related synthetic fabrics for the entire world.
Minister Skvortsova concludes in her report that new policies and procedures regarding the use of nanotechnology are needed to avert a catastrophe and must include complete labeling of all products containing these potentially dangerous substances.
Interesting to note is that the world’s leading nanotechnology manufacturing and research, the United States, has taken an opposite course and last year declined to put warning labels on sunscreens that contain nanomaterials, while requiring other labeling information. Curiously this was done despite warnings by scientists that the use of nanoparticles in sunscreen lotions “might be dangerous to human health.”
With the mass death of children in India now being linked to nanoparticles, however, the United States this past week reversed course in what is described as an “unusual departure from its usual innocent-until-proven-guilty approach in regulating consumer goods” when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new statement saying that such tiny technology needs more safety testing before it's used in consumer goods.
More ominous than this FDA warning, perhaps, is that within days of the mass deaths of these Indian children the Obama regime, on 19 June, awarded contracts for the creation of three new centers tasked with responding to the threat of future pandemics and biological attacks that are to be based in Maryland, North Carolina and Texas.
And going from the merely ominous to the downright scary, within weeks of the 2012 Davos Summit (called the world’s most exclusive gathering) President Obama issued a new Executive Order titled National Defense Resources Preparedness on 16 March that states during times of disaster and/or catastrophe the United States will be ruled a new entity called The Defense Production Act Committee (Sec. 701) which is to be headed by The Secretary of State, who at this time is Hillary Clinton.
To fully understand the significance between Obama’s issuing of this Executive Order and the Davos Summit one has to remember that the Davos World Economic Forum in its 2008 annual report indentified nanotechnology as a “Core Risk” that had the potential to destroy human life on an unimaginable scale.
The fears voiced by Davos were realized this past week when research carried out at North Carolina State University showed that gold nanoparticles are capable of unraveling DNA.
The danger posed to our world by scientists playing God, and supported by governments, is beyond comprehension, and in a History Channel broadcast about a futuristic doomsday scenario it stated: “In a common practice, billions of nanobots are released to clean up an oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. However, due to a programming error, the nanobots devour all carbon based objects, instead of just the hydrocarbons of the oil. The nanobots destroy everything, all the while, replicating themselves. Within days, the planet is turned to dust.”
