New York: Police union demands info on 9/11 toxic debris

ABC NEWS — New York City’s police union is demanding more information about the effects of toxic debris from the 9/11 attacks.

The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association called on the city to release all data about officers who suffered cancer after responding at the World Trade Center at a news conference on Sunday.

The union also showed the uniform worn that day by Officer Alonzo Harris.

It was tested and found to have dangerous carcinogens on it.

The P.B.A. says the city has dragged its feet on providing information about first responders.

“It’s unconscionable that they would not release this data. This is an issue of men and women who serve this city without question and they’re looking for one thing, they’re looking for the treatment that they deserve,” P.B.A. President Patrick Lynch said.

The union wants cancer included on the list of illnesses covered by the Zadroga Act, to help first responders.

    Thermitic materials
    Some of the illnesses suffered by the WTC first responders might be explained by the existing evidence of energetic materials, like thermite, at Ground Zero. For example aluminum, aluminum oxide and aluminum silicates are known causal factors for some of the common illnesses seen, such as sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and the as-yet-unexplained immune system diseases. Furthermore, the rare cancers found in some first responders could be the result of environmental factors such as the unusually high levels of benzene and derivatives of 1,3-DPP which suggest the presence of energetic materials like thermite and nanothermite.

    Analysis of the lung tissue of first responders has also indicated that energetic materials might be involved. The unusual platy configurations of aluminum silicates found in those lung tissue samples seem similar to the platy configurations of aluminum and silicon in the nanothermite that has been discovered in WTC dust samples.

    I’ve made sol-gel nanothermites, and have confirmed that the iginition residues contain carbon nanotubes (first discovered by Niels Harrit).

    Carbon nanotubes have been found throughout the WTC dust and in the lungs of the first responders.

    I’ve also done some analytical and visual comparisons between nanothermites and the paramagnetic fraction found in WTC dust samples.
