Turkish Scientist Could Be Jailed For Publishing Report on Poisonous Metals in Babies, Mothers’ Milk

May 27, 2011

Professor Onur Hamzaoğlu could face jail time for publishing a report that found poisonous metals in the systems of Turkish townsfolk. But he is “not afraid,” he tells Green Prophet in an exclusive interview.
Earlier this week, officials from the Turkish province of Kocaeli filed a complaint against Hamzaoğlu for inciting “fear and panic” amongst locals. Hamzaoğlu had indeed published something fearful and alarming: a study showing high levels of heavy metals, such as arsenic, mercury, and lead, in samples of infant feces and mother’s milk from the town of Dilovası.
According to the abstract of the study, it aimed to measure the levels of heavy metals in the population and figure out how it could affect the DNA of newborns.
But as reward for bringing this disturbing information to light, Hamzaoğlu is now being investigated by his employer, Kocaeli University. He could also face a court hearing, and a sentence of several years in prison, if the university decides to turn his case over to the public prosecutor.
“Politicians of local governments and the Council of Higher Education (YOK) [put] pressure on the universities” in Turkey, Hamzaoğlu tells Green Prophet. He acknowledges that Turkey’s treatment of scientists who publish disturbing findings casts it in a negative light, particularly in the context of the European Union, which Turkey’s leaders – publicly, at least – say they hope to join.
While most European countries are trying to move away from dirty industries and seek cleaner forms of energy and fuel, Hamzaoğlu says Turkey is “moving to high pollution factories, such as… cement, paint, and iron and steel.”
The local picture
Dilovası is a stark illustration of this. According to Hamzaoğlu, the province of Kocaeli has been the site of 15 percent of Turkey’s cumulative manufacturing industry over the past decade. The main sectors include chemical products, metal products, and basic metals, so it’s little surprise that traces of these are showing up in the air of the region and the bodies of its residents.
Two highways pass through Dilovası itself, and the center of the town is an official industrial zone comprising 174 companies. Thirteen percent of the firms in Dilovası operate metal factories, and 11 percent are within the paint and chemical sectors.
“In summary, the problems are happening in front of everyone’s eyes,” says Hamzaoğlu.
In the nearby town of Kandıra, where there is practically no industrial activity, cancer rates are far lower than in Dilovası, according to Hamzaoğlu’s report.
The research and the backlash
Hamzaoğlu is head of the public health department at Kocaeli University. Therefore, he says, “my basic task is to determine [the] health problems of populations and reasons of the problems, and produce solutions.”

That’s why he looked at samples of the purest, most basic fluids that come from babies and mothers: infant meconium, or the earliest stool of an infant, and colostrum, the concentrated milk rich in antibodies that mothers produce until their children are at least a few days old. In addition to arsenic, mercury, and lead, Hamzaoğlu found trace amounts of copper, aluminum, zinc, cadmium, and iron in the samples.
Kocaeli University will likely hand down a decision on Hamzaoğlu’s case in the next few months. If the university chooses to turn his case over to the public prosecutor, he will face more investigations and a possible prison term of two to four years.

Obama Misleads Energy Facts:

March 12, 2011

Obama claims the glass as half empty without stating a correlative truth that the glass can fill itself.

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com ….He just can’t stop lying.
Each time Obama tells the truth, but the truth misleads. The final example towards the end of the video is the most interesting. Obama points out that America is two percent of the world’s crude, but the potential is there for America to be Seventeen percent of the world’s crude and therefor America could be completely self sufficient.


cowardice is not the only answer

7 factories in China equals all the pollution of American cars. Is this the change you were waiting for? it has been proven that Carbon Emissions do not equal “Green House Warming Effects” anyway, but I am willing to *assume* that there is something toxic about pollution and exhaust that we should be concerned about. Also it is absurd to say 4000 American lives were lost in Iraq without recognizing (1) the lives that were saved internationally and locally in the long term (2) recognizing that not finding WMDS, does not mean we didn’t find parts like Nigerian Cake (3) that a war strategy should of been less involved with nation building and more involved in killing and perhaps we are only guilty of being the good guys (4) that the war wasn’t ever put into paper by Bush, but was actually a chain reaction to issues that Clinton put on paper. Perhaps if Clinton and the pentagon had planned out a decent attack it might of been different. no doubt we could of had less casualties if we had only occupied oil rich areas with strong bases that pushed civilian populations out. We could of had two resource rich countries the size of Rhode Island right in Iraq and there would of been nothing the Sunni or Shia could of done about it, in fact this is what needs to be done with Iran. you need to put your chips closer together, not spread apart. we fail because now we think cowardice is the only answer. (5) there is no doubt in my mind that if America had taken out Saddam Hussein in the 90s with Clinton then there would of been support. our country put all it’s chips on the Israeli Palestine situation and that like now was bound to fail because we were confused into thinking Islam really was the religion of peace, when it says to kill Jews behind trees.
