9/11 Responders Suffered Kidney Damage Due to Air Pollutants

The higher the exposure to particulate matter, the greater the kidney damage

Many first responders working at Ground Zero following the 9/11 tragedy were exposed to cement dust, smoke, glass fibers, and heavy metals. Exposure to high levels of such particulate matter caused significant damage to first responders' kidneys, according to research presented at ASN Kidney Week 2013 November 9 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

The team previously demonstrated abnormalities in heart and lung in first responders to 9/11. In this latest study, the investigators evaluated 183 consecutively enrolled first responders from the WTC–CHEST Program, a subset of the World Trade Center Clinical Center of Excellence. Participants provided information about particulate matter exposure, and exposure score was calculated based on proximity to Ground Zero, time of arrival, and duration of exposure.

Kidney tests demonstrated a linear trend between level of exposure to particulate matter and measures of poor kidney function. Participants with the highest exposure to particulate matter had significantly worse kidney function than those with low exposure.

"We observed a statistically significant independent relationship of high exposure to particulate matter with albuminuria in this cohort after controlling for pertinent risk factors," reported lead author Mary Ann McLaughlin, MD (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai). "This novel finding paves the way for future studies of environmental exposures and inflammation in the pathogenesis of albuminuria."

The authors report funding for this abstract was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

This important article states:

"Many first responders working at Ground Zero following the 9/11 tragedy were exposed to cement dust...."

The "Twin Towers" were both engineered as "...a tube within a tube", meaning the cores were massive concrete "rectangles" with 17-foot-thick-walls at the bases, tapering to 12-foot thick at the tops---all reinforced with 3" rebar.

Original Tower design drawings were hastily (took 3 days) changed by Larry ("...we made the decision to 'pull it....'") Silverstein and company, replacing the concrete cores with steel support columns so the "jet fuel fires" hoax was at least a "snowflake-in-hell" plausible. Even so, the "Official Story" is ultra-flimsy fantasy from the cores to....

9/11 was executed by those with most to gain, like Silverstein, and America's "best friend" (who still celebrate with great chutzpa) at America attacking the enemies of that "best friend".

A few very important links:

Did anyone make a copy of the 1990 PBS documentary that chronicles the construction of the core towers...and the delays vexing contractors---delays while Top-Security-Clearance armed guards behind visual screens protected Top-Security-Clearance workmen applying "anti-vibration", "anti-corrosion" coating (actually, C-4 plastic explosives) to every 28 vertical feet of 3" rebar before concrete could be poured?

The 1990 PBS documentary on construction of the Twin Towers has been scrubbed from the Internet, however:

The novel "TIMING" published by StarChief Press in 2005 details this aspect of the Twin Towers being built for exactly what we saw on 9/11....

You mean that in the 60's and 70's when the towers were build there were already explosives in the building?

We will all share the same fate..... "It is believed that barium salt, polymer fibers and other chemicals sprayed in the atmosphere by chemtrails are the physical irritants that are either directly or indirectly responsible, for the recent epidemic increase in cases of nose bleed, asthma, allergies, pneumonia, upper respiratory symptoms and a noticeable increase in arthritis symptoms, recently reported nationwide. Chemicals illegally sprayed into the atmosphere are producing atmospheric and ground conditions detrimental to human and animal health but favorable to the growth of harmful molds and fungus. These conditions are not conducive to good health. The soluble salts of barium, an earth metal, are toxic in mammalian systems. They are absorbed rapidly from the gastrointestinal tract and are deposited in the muscles, lungs, and bone. No case data is available from the medical community on the long term effects of barium in the human body." ....

So, how do we get the Federal Government to STOP releasing their chemicals on us, the citizens?

How could they have stood on Ground Zero whenGround Zero should have contained 2X 100 meters(!) high pile of rubble, (approx 20% of the height of the original building), that requiring up to FOUR years to cut away and remove, not OVERNIGHT. Those two piles of rubble that comprised of MILLIONS of tons of twisted steel girders, concrete, office furniture and equipment, sanitaryware and 3000+ humans. Not forgetting that the massive central steel cores with the liftshafts should still have been standing proud 500 meters(!) into the sky, as the floors alegedly pancaked.

The planes that crashed the towers had depleted uranium (DU) ballast. A similar crash in Holland was treated as radiological event. DU is both toxic and radioactive; it affects the kidneys. Never seen any research on this point.

The 911 scam - imploded buildings, invading countries, hyping the made in hollygollywood drama to assist the people to fear their own shadows, includes the insurance scam/claim by the corrupt Tribesman and his slimy devious friends, on the twin tower structures that had to be renovated by the owners, inclusive of the removal of tons of asbestos. Of course their implosion shifted the expense to anyone but Larry Silversten. Now do your research on the link between kidney issues and asbestos. Bingo, part one.

See info' below from this link: for the following incredibly relevant and important expose on Siverstein & friends

"The real bottom line was that the Towers were two financial white elephants. And both Silverstein and Greenberg had to know that. The tenancy was dropping. They were out of date. And most dangerously, they were asbestos bombs, loaded with the dangerous building material when they were completed in 1972-73.

By law the buildings could not be taken down by internal demolition. And since it would cost a billion dollars or more to take the towers down beam by beam, it would be at great loss to the Port of Authority or its leaseholder. Thus the reasons are obvious to take WTC down in act of terror also a false-flag operation. Remember, the concept for the WTC Towers originated with the Nelson and David Rockefeller, members of the Council on Foreign Relations and among the world’s elites. A “New Pearl Harbor” would serve those interests well."

Remember all that white powdery stuff that New Yorkers were inhaling during and after the 911 hoax collapse of buildings. Now connect the dots. There is plenty of well researched information online regarding the Silverstein twin tower asbestos insurance scam.

when bush senior was elected to the office of president of the usa in the late eighties a jewish co worker came over smiling like a cat who swallowed a camery stating to me thet america has it's first jewish american president. i asked him as to how did he arrive at this conslussion as bush senior was a episcopalian christian protistant denomination. he replied that the senior bush was a direct seed of col. solomon bush the famous jewish american revolutionary war hero. i doubted his claim but with all that happened i believe him now. this explains the reason behind bush's role in getting america involved in the first iraqi war. the subsequent stealing of the presidential election twice by bush junior his role in 8/11 coverup getting america involved in the the second iraq war and the afghanistan war and looting oof the us treasury and transferring the wealth of america for the benefit of israel and the khazar judaic banksters.

Solomon Bush: Is Remembered As A Soldier and Citizen
by Seymour "Sy" Brody

Lieutenant Colonel Solomon Bush was the highest-ranking
Jewish officer in the Continental Army and was decorated for his bravery in action.
The son of Mathias Bush, a merchant, he was born in Philadelphia in 1753.
His first duty in the War of Independence was as
deputy adjutant general of the Pennsylvania State Militia.
At Brandywine, the militia encountered the British Army. Bullets
and cannon balls flew through the air as the two armies intensified
their battle. Captain Lewis Bush, the colonel's brother, was mortally

Colonel Bush was deeply involved in the battle and he received a
near-fatal wound that affected him for the rest of his life. Although he
survived the battle, he was captured when the British took Philadelphia.
He was later freed in an exchange of prisoners between the British and the Americans.

Upon his release, he applied for rations and back pay, and the Supreme
Executive Committee of the Continental Army reviewed his request and his records.
The review disclosed the distinguished and brilliant service that Colonel Bush had rendered in and out of battle,
especially during the winter of 1776, "when the service was critical and
hazardous." The Supreme Executive Committee presented him with a
special citation.

After the war, Colonel Bush went to England seeking better medical
care for his war wound. While he was there, he again found himself in a
position to serve his country.

The British, still smarting over their loss in the Revolutionary War,
were pursuing a policy that finally led to the War of 1812. The British
were seizing and searching American ships and conscripting their sailors
into the Royal Navy.

In England, there was no American Consul or Ambassador present
to intervene, so Colonel Bush took it upon himself to act on behalf of
his fellow citizens. He reported his efforts to President George Washington,
whose answers contained warm commendations for the Colonel's successful interventions.

When he returned to America, Colonel Bush applied for the position of Postmaster General,
which had recently been vacated. He was the first Jew known to have been considered for a Cabinet
rank in the government. He failed to get this appointment and his unhealed war
injury hastened his death in 1796. Prior to his death, however, Colonel
Bush contributed toward a new building for the Mikveh Israel Congregation in Philadelphia.
He will long be remembered for his service to his country as a soldier and a citizen.
