Status of inflammatory biomarkers in the population that survived the Bhopal gas tragedy: a study after two decades. (2/3)

Bhopal gas tragedy is considered as one of the world's worst industrial disaster. Approximately, 3,000-6,000 people died and 200,000 injured due to the leak of 40 tons of methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas from a pesticide plant. We aimed to decipher any persistent and subtle immunotoxic effects of MIC in the survivors of the tragedy. The study was divided into 3 groups i.e. group I (n=40); Age and gender matched non-exposed healthy controls recruited from places within the geographical region of Bhopal but from unaffected zones, group II (n=40); Age and gender matched non-exposed healthy controls recruited from places well outside geographical region of Bhopal and group III (n=40); Age and gender matched MIC exposed subjects from affected zones inside geographical region of Bhopal and the status of inflammatory biomarkers (IL-8, IL-1beta, IL-6, TNF, IL-10, IL-12p70 cytokines and C-reactive protein) were analysed. The results displayed a significant increase in the levels of all circulating inflammatory biomarkers in the MIC exposed group in comparison to non-exposed cohorts. A toxin induced genetic and/or epigenetic alteration seems to be the likely underlying cause. However, further studies are essential for both mechanistic understanding and clinical implications of these patterns.  (+info)

BHOPAL, India -- Thousands protested in India Saturday against the countrys decision to compete in the London Olympics despite sponsorship of the Games by a US firm linked to the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy.. Marking the 27th anniversary of the industrial disaster which killed tens of thousands of people, protesters gathered at two sites in the central city of Bhopal to demand India pull out from the Games, which are sponsored by Dow Chemical.. Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide, the firm blamed for the lethal gas leak, a decade after the company had settled its liabilities with the Indian government by paying $470 million for Bhopal victims.. "This protest is against both the Olympics and government indifference towards gas victims," activist Rachna Dhingra of the Bhopal Group for Information and Action told AFP.. As placard-waving protesters attempted to block trains travelling to and from the Bhopal railway station, police baton-charged the crowd, which responded by pelting stones at the ...

1. The height of apathy towards the concerns of the Bhopal gas victims both by the Central as well as the State Governments can be gauged by the fact that till date only a fraction of the Bhopal gas victims have been issued health booklets. Issuance of health booklet is crucial for recording the medical history of a gas-victim in terms of diagnosis, investigations and treatment. In the absence of such health booklets and the consequent inability of a gas-victim to "prove" the degree of injury suffered by him/her has resulted in the gas-victim being denied adequate compensation based on the nature of the injury that was inflicted on him/her. As a result, the bulk of the gas-victims have been awarded compensation for minor/temporary injury although many of the victims had actually suffered serious/permanent injury and are still undergoing medical treatment or have since died due to the seriousness of the injuries that were inflicted on them by the Bhopal disaster. We again demand that health ...

The Union Carbide tragedy shook people up. They had seen, with all the nakedness, the harms that the state causes, harms that in the West are usually hidden behind a softer façade. People in Bhopal had seen the utterly irresponsibility of a state that had monopolized the crisis management machinery and then hijacked it when the crisis erupted. Society realized that behind all the brave sounding talk of the state were extraordinarily spineless and timid people, with absolutely no sense of individual responsibility. "They are worse than animals," people would say.. Over those months, I saw people becoming increasingly anti-statist. There were open discussions about making bribery legal, making it a mere transaction cost rather than a huge impediment. People frequently discussed the possibility of privatizing not only industries but particularly law and order, and crisis management machinery.. More of the same. Within months Bhopal faced another wave of social turmoil. On this occasion, the Indian ...
At a press conference in Calcutta on Sunday 3rd March 2013, doctors from Bhopal confirmed that congenital birth defects in affected areas of the city are seven times higher than usual rates.. Third generations are increasingly born with psychological and physical deformities as a result of widespread water contamination following the worlds worst industrial disaster in 1984.. Over 28 years ago, on the 3rd December 1984, 27 tonnes of deadly gas leaked from a Union Carbide pesticide plant which was built in a heavily populated area of the city. To this day the abandoned factory stands leaking chemicals into the environment nearly 30 years on. The water contamination was widespread around the factory several years prior to the disaster due to the indiscriminate dumping of toxic waste from the plant since it started manufacturing pesticides in 1969.. Surveys have shown that in affected areas of Bhopal 3,000 children out of 20,000 families are suffering from multiple and serious congenital ...

CSL Limited is a global specialty biotechnology company that researches, develops, manufactures and markets products to treat and prevent serious human medical conditions. CSLs product areas include blood plasma derivatives, vaccines, antivenom, and cell culture reagents used in various medical and genetic research and manufacturing applications. Founded in 1916 the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, an Australian government body focused on vaccine manufacture. Under the first director, William Penfold, CSL commenced operation in the vacant Walter and Eliza Hall Institute building at the Melbourne Hospital in 1918, before moving to its purpose-built Parkville premises in the following year. After ongoing disputes with the Commonwealth Department of Health and its director, (John) Howard Cumpston, Penfold resigned in 1927 and was replaced by Frederic Morgan. Soon after Morgans appointment, CSL was drawn into a serious public health disaster when a batch of its diphtheria toxin-antitoxin was ...
President Obama awarded Prusiner the National Medal of Science in 2010 to recognize the importance of his work. Unfortunately, this groundbreaking research is being ignored. This negligence is fueling a public health disaster around the world, as critical pathways are being ignored and mismanaged. The mismanagement also is contributing to the global surge in autism.. In June 2012, Prusiner confirmed that Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Huntingtons and even ALS are prion diseases similar, if not identical, to Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The primary difference being which part of the brain the disease attacks first. The other variable is that there are now an unknown number of prion mutations. Mutations of these deadly prions are the common denominator between all forms of TSEs. Most of the carnage is being swept under the rug as the problem escalates.. "There is now real evidence of the potential transmissibility of Alzheimers," says Thomas Wiesniewski M.D. a prion and Alzheimers researcher at New ...
And for Dr. Ludwig, the fact that the studys findings were less dire than previous studies does not shake his belief that there is a looming public health disaster. Dr. Flegals study, for instance, did not directly address the sharp increase in childhood obesity. "Once obese children enter adulthood," Dr. Ludwig said, "then all of the previous relationships that have been observed may no longer apply because theyll be carrying those extra pounds for so many more years.. "In other words, with regard to the childhood obesity epidemic," he added, "we are still in the quiet before the storm.". Mr. Jacobson says that it is shortsighted for Consumer Freedom to make such a big deal over the number of obesity deaths. He contends that obesity is just one symptom of the prevalence of horrible diets, and that the same eating habits that cause people to gain weight may also deprive them of essential nutrients, antioxidants and fiber to help keep their bodies healthy and free from chronic disease. "Its ...

Moreover, I believe that a methods paper appropriate for publication in Epidemiology should be accessible to its readers, few of whom are statisticians. Successful communication with working scientists, including well-documented and user-friendly software, also serves the interest of authors who want to see their ideas used. I encourage articles that transform seemingly arcane statistical ideas (whether well established or cutting edge) into practical epidemiologic tools, using language that the readers of Epidemiology will understand. These will not all be original biostatistical research papers, though those are welcome. In that spirit, I would welcome papers aimed primarily at students and readers who might feel out of date on important new ideas.. To obtain an outside view of the utility or accessibility of a paper, I plan to send statistical manuscripts not only to referees who are themselves methodologists, but also to researchers who are the target audience for ideas developed in the ...
Will the rains be adequate this year? Observing the political scene two phenomena are notable. First, that academic political social sciences claims to be able to predict political outcomes through quantitative analysis are little more than statistical snake oil (see my April column). Second, that many political careers have the lineaments of Greek and Shakespearean tragedy. Political scientists as well as many historians remain sceptical of the role of individuals in determining political outcomes, relying instead on deeper social and economic causes. For them the Greek tragic sense, also embodied in Shakespeares tragedies, is an archaic and irrelevant form of explanation. It is useful to see how this has come about. The Greek tragic sense of life asserts that "the forces which shape or destroy our lives lie outside the governance of reason or justice" (p. 4). The Fates govern human lives. Amongst them is Lachesis, chance, the element of luck that a man ha ...

As an ND (Naturopathic Doctor), I am often asked, "What should I eat or do, in order to regain my health?" This is, of course, long after the individual has exhausted most other options like diets that didnt work, supplements that did not deliver as promised, and ineffective or overly toxic allopathic (Western Medicine) approaches. But, why let it get this far in the first place? Health is achieved on a day-to-day basis. "You are what you eat." Most of us are familiar with this maxim, yet we carelessly choose to disregard it, and blithely proceed on the path to health disasters of our own creation. Years of abuse to the body may result in arthritis, cancer, digestive problems, type II diabetes, candida (yeast) issues, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and osteopenia, to name a few.. There is no magic pill which can reverse any particular disease in a day, week, or even a month! That process takes time and a concerted effort by the affected individual to make some changes (healthy decisions). All ...

The fields of cancer epidemiology, biomarkers, and prevention in the 21st Century are hallmarked by calls for transdisciplinary, translational investigations of cancer. Given the complex multifactorial etiology of cancer, these collaborative interactions are critical. Despite the need for better communication among researchers, barriers still exist that limit scientific progress.. First an example: early in my academic career, I gave a chalk talk to a group of scientists about my ideas for identifying genes involved in human cancer. I proposed to use epidemiologic methods to compare cases with disease to controls without disease. I discussed how the sampling design was important, how I would minimize bias to the effect estimates I hoped to obtain, and how I would obtain valid measures of the genetic variation of interest. I presented data demonstrating the principle. When time came for questions, there was a silence in the room. Finally, a senior and esteemed faculty member asked: "If you really ...

A third perspective is brought in, not only as a balance, but to give those of us who arent leaders something we can directly relate to. An everyman, a plain soldier far from home. This third point of view isnt a portrayal of grand sacrifice or such, but this is basic survival. In the survival rivalries of the past and home are discarded as unimportant, basic friendship is the mean to survival, and continuing when death arrives. Of course theres plenty of war sucks to all this, but the way things end is tear-jerking tragedy. The journeys of The Heart of What Was Lost feel like interwoven Greek Tragedies, but none more than that of our every soldier. And the tragic end, is also the challenge that Williams sets for us all. For the sacrifice of leadership is not enough. The every person must step as well, and it isnt easy. For the sake of the future, you may be asked to cut off the head of the reanimated corpse of your only friend. Over dramatic? When I look at the world around me today, I ...

Sarah Douglas-Pennants two daughters were born with the disease that afflicts the Chancellors baby son. One died - but there is still hope, she tells Cassandra Jardine.
Which isnt much when you look at how much they did wrong. I mean, they are talking about it purely as a kid thing. They seem to be going with the tragedy model and then saying that the people for whom it is not tragic arent really like the people for whom they expect it to be tragic. (Amy? I figure you probably have better things to do than bash an Australian article, but Ive seen you write about how you dont think youre a tragedy.) They talk about how diagnostics could not possibly be responsible for the increase when it is actually pretty easy for them to be the increase. Oh, and apparently being autistic means not being "fine." Which is a problem. Were fine. Were just running a completely different brain system, which wont always get along with your brain system. Also, from whence comes this doubling every five years? I need stats for that one. With SOURCES cited. All in all, seems like a fairly typical awareness piece that I would like nothing more than to never see written again. ...

There is a small group of individuals at Occupy Dame Street who could be called quite hostile to the unions - for a number of reasons, some quite at odds with each other. The vast majority are simply not familiar with unions, beyond having seen various union leaders on the RTE News being pally with Haughey, Reynolds, Bertie and now Enda. These union leaders are perceived, more or less correctly, as part of the 1%. This engenders a suspicion of the unions that will not be broken down by a party like the SWP, a party that nobody trusts who is trying to browbeat everyone else into an alliance based on their standard intervention methods as sketched above.. To put it crudely everyone needs to calm the fuck down, back the fuck off and create the space where some real discussion about how best to work with the radical end of the unions can take place. The discussion and debate needs to become one within the movement rather than one between the movement and the SWP. While it would be tragic if the ...

Greetings, my dearest friends. The divine blessings streaming in the atmosphere around and within you are a powerful force, available to you provided you are open and receptive to it.. Self-realization means becoming aware of this universal, cosmic power, available at all times. It is your tragedy to be cut off from this power, to be oblivious or ignorant of its existence. For knowing of it is one of the prerequisites for making it available. When you enter the realm where it is possible to make this power available, you find yourself in the predicament of not being able to know what you have not experienced. Therefore, to bridge the gap between previous experience and the available power, it is necessary to consider the new possibility. This is always the intelligent approach to every new step of branching out, whether in science or in any other realization of truth. However, you are usually not ready to do this, for you falsely believe you must have definite opinions. You fluctuate at all ...

December 3, 2004 will mark twenty years since the people of Bhopal awoke from their sleep, choking and near-blinded, as methyl isocyanate (MIC) and other toxic gases escaped from Union Carbides pesticide plant. Overnight, a city of 800,000 people became a gas chamber, extinguishing the lives of at least 8,000 people. Union Carbides gas cloud was just the beginning. The settlement Union Carbide negotiated with the Indian government is grossly insufficient and does not cover medical costs or economic losses for those exposed, or for their children, who have also been affected. The hazardous chemicals have not been removed from the plant itself, and continue to contaminate the drinking water for thousands of Bhopal residents.. The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal (ICJB) calls the ongoing efforts by Union Carbide and its new owner, Dow Chemical, to evade liabilities for Bhopal, "a classic case of corporate crime gone unpunished." Bhopal survivors have said from the start, "We never ...

On August 8, the Indian government announced that it would meet many of the demands of the survivors of the 1984 pesticide plant explosion in Bhopal. The government announced that it will take legal action on the civil and criminal liabilities of Union Carbide and its owner, Dow Chemical Company, and that it will establish an "Empowered Commission" on Bhopal to address the health and welfare needs of the Bhopal survivors as well as environmental, social, economic and medical rehabilitation. PAN Executive Director Kathryn Gilje called the news "a great, hard-won and long overdue victory." The success came only after a 172-day demonstration: survivors walked 500 miles from Bhopal to New Delhi, camped at a protest site at the historic Jantar Mantar observatory in Delhi, suffered arrests and police beatings, and finally launched a 60-day hunger fast that was joined by more than 800 people around the world. PAN Action Center members participated in a global action that flooded the Prime Ministers ...
The crowds spanning all ages of Indian society shouted and waved signs as they walked through Bhopals streets. At least three protest rallies, organized by different groups of Bhopal residents and aid groups working with disaster victims, were to converge outside the gates of the abandoned Union Carbide pesticide plant later Friday. A leak of 40 tons of poisonous gas from the pesticide plant on Dec. 3, 1984, killed at least 10,000 people in Bhopal and affected more than 555,000 others, although the exact number of victims has never been clear. Many died over the years due to gas-related illnesses, like lung cancer, kidney failure and liver disease. "Dont forget the victims of the genocide in Bhopal!" and "Death to Dow!" the protesters shouted. Their banners carried similar slogans, accusing Union Carbide and Dow Chemical Co. of inadequate compensation and medical help for the victims. Michigan-based Dow Chemical bought Union Carbide Corp. in 2001. Another group of protesters staged a mock ...
Researchers explore how soil-improving Pseudomonas bacteria digest carbaryl. The memories of the Bhopal gas tragedy that claimed thousands of lives and injured a few lakhs of people, haunts us even after three decades. The culprit was a toxic gas used to produce a pesticide called Carbaryl, in the Union Carbide India Limited Factory. Sadly, the use of Carbaryl continued amid growing concerns about its side effects. The need to completely remove it from the environment or break it down into less harmful substances is of primary importance. Dr Phale and his team from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), and collaborator Dr Sharma from Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB), Delhi, have achieved a significant breakthrough in identifying bacteria which can clean up this pesticide from the environment and understanding exactly how the breakdown occurs.. Carbaryl, most commonly sold under the trade name Sevin was a preferred pesticide for agricultural as well ...

Revised national tuberculosis control programme in India has limited co-hort-wise information about what happens to patients diagnosed with multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB). We determined the pre-treatment loss to follow-up (non-initiation of treatment by programme within 6 months of diagnosis) and time from diagnosis to treatment initiation in Bhopal district, central India (2014). Pre-treatment loss to follow-up was 13% (0.95 CI: 7%, 23%), not significantly different from the national estimates (18%) and median time to initiate treatment was seven days, lower than that reported elsewhere in the country. Bhopal was performing well with reference to time to treatment initiation in programmatic settings.

Bhopal, August 1, 2013: Three decades after it was shut down, the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal continues to be a real danger to the people of Bhopal. Almost every study done to measure the impact of the waste dumped within and outside the site by UCIL has come up with one conclusion there is large-scale contamination in the soil and water of the area where the factory is located.. In the first initiative of its kind, New Delhi-based research and advocacy body Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has analysed all the studies and their conclusions. CSE released the key findings of its analysis here today at a media briefing. It also released a comprehensive action plan for ridding the site of this contamination.. Between 1969 and 1984, Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) had produced carbamate pesticides and organochlorine formulations. All these years, the toxic wastes and products were being dumped at several locations inside the plant and in the solar evaporation pond (SEP) outside. After ...

On December 3, 2004, the twentieth anniversary of the Bhopal disaster, Andy Bichlbaum appeared on BBC World as "Jude Finisterra",[12] a Dow Chemical spokesman.[13] Dow is the owner of Union Carbide, the company responsible for the chemical disaster in Bhopal, India on December 3, 1984. An estimated 3,800 people died immediately from the hazardous chemicals and thousands more were killed by the plume from the UCC plant during the next few days.[14] The Indian government reported that more than half a million people were exposed to the gas, leading to numerous early and late health defects.[15] The Bhopal Disaster became one of the worst chemical disasters in history and the name Bhopal became synonymous with industrial catastrophe.[16] Immediately after the disaster, UCC began attempts to dissociate itself from responsibility for the gas leak.[14] The Indian Supreme Court eventually mediated a settlement in which UCC accepted moral responsibility and agreed to pay $470 million to the Indian ...
BOSTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that Kayem Foods, Inc., which operates a food manufacturing and distribution facility in Chelsea, Mass., has agreed to pay a $46,525 penalty for allegedly filing a late and inadequate plan to prevent accidental releases of ammonia from the facility. This facility is in a highly populated area, where an ammonia release could have serious consequences, said Robert W. Varney, regional administrator for EPAs New England Office. Kayem, like all companies, needs to ensure that it is adequately prepared for handling this hazardous chemical. Kayem uses anhydrous ammonia as a refrigerant at the facility, which is located in a densely populated industrial, commercial and residential use area. Airborne ammonia is corrosive to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes and may be fatal if inhaled. An accidental release of ammonia could threaten the surrounding area, resulting in evacuations or injuries. The federal Clean Air Act requires that ...
The substantial vaccine-induced morbidity and mortality associated with smallpox vaccination make pre-emptive mass vaccination controversial. If vaccination is voluntary, then there is a conflict between self- and group interests. This conflict can be framed as a tragedy of the commons, in which herd immunity plays the role of the commons, and free-riding (i.e. not vaccinating pre-emptively) is analogous to exploiting the commons. A previous game-theoretical study by Bauch et al. [4] examined this conflict of interest, and focused on the trade-off between prophylactic vaccination and post-outbreak mass vaccination (which has been shown to outperform contact-traced vaccination in a bioterrorism setting [10]). In particular, they showed that if the decision regarding pre-emptive vaccination is left to the individual, then the vaccine coverage achieved will be suboptimal from the group perspective. Bauch et al. [4] assumed that, once a post-outbreak vaccination campaign begins, individuals will be ...
UCIL used to manufacture three different kinds of pesticides: Carbaryl (trade name Sevin), Aldicarb (trade name Temik) and a formulation of Carbaryl and gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane (trade name Sevidol). The plant also used heavy metals like mercury and chromium. Most of these products and elements are persistent and toxic. The CSE laboratory chose the same chemicals for its tests.. In October this year, one water and eight soil samples were collected from various places inside the factory. Eleven more water samples came from locations outside, ranging from colonies next to the factorys boundary to those 3.5 km away.. All the samples collected from within the factory were found to be highly contaminated. The waste stored within the premises had Carbaryl content of 9,856 parts per million (ppm) and mercury content of 1,065 ppm. The soil sample near the Sevidol plant had 2,782 ppm of Lindane; soil from solar evaporation pond had chromium content of 1,065 ppm, while that from the Sevin plant had ...

Beyond Pesticides, December 5, 2011) On December 3, the 27th anniversary of the Bhopal pesticide plant disaster in Bhopal, India, a trial began in an international peoples court in India involving the worlds six largest pesticide companies: Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, Dow and Dupont. These companies, collectively known as the "Big 6," are cited by prosecutors for their human rights violations, including internationally recognized rights to life, livelihood and health. Beyond Pesticides joined Pesticide Action Network (PAN) and others in signing a joint statement demanding that these companies be held accountable for their human rights violations, which was presented at the trial. The trial, hosted by PAN International, is facilitated by the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PTT), an international opinion tribunal independent from State authorities.
