The Latest Health Study Of 9/11 Survivors And Rescue Workers Is Raising Serious Concerns Among Leading Experts And Politicians Alike

According to the World Trade Center Medical Working Group of New York City’s 2009 Annual Report on 9/11 Health, long-term medical and mental health problems continue to rise in the terrorist attack victims. The report also underscores the urgent need for increased special federal funding for medical services and additional research. [http://home.nyc.gov/html/om/pdf/2009/pr418-09_report.pdf]

“It’s critically important to sickened 9/11 heroes and heroines that they are not forgotten as the majority of them still don’t have the proper health care and struggle with medical insurance companies,” says Steven M. Centore, author of One of Them: A First Responder’s Story.

Mr. Centore, who is a 9/11 first responder, a federal employee and a Navy veteran, details his own battles with medical insurance companies and the federal government in his book—battles that have made his many 9/11-related health problems all the more painful to deal with.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg released the Annual Report on 9/11 Health, which was based on recent medical and environmental research.

“We will do whatever is needed to take care of those who came to our aid after the city’s darkest day,” said Mayor Bloomberg.

Appointed by the mayor two years ago, The World Trade Center Medical Working Group is comprised of health experts in the fields of science, medicine and government. Its aim is to examine and analyze research findings on health impacts caused by the September 11 attack.

“It’s eight years after the attack and 9/11 victims continue to fight for the government’s attention and help,” adds Mr. Centore. “They put their own health, their own lives and the futures of their families on the line when the nation needed them, and they deserve respect for their sacrifices.”

Mr. Centore has appeared at congressional hearings to fight for the rights of the thousands of first responders. In his book he details his own personal account of his experience at Ground Zero on 9/11.

The Inside Story, William E. Mayer’s Warriors – No Place for the Meek

A magnificent two volume book set of “Beyond the Call, Memoirs of a Medical Visionary”, the life and times of Dr. William E. Mayer, has just been released and is available through national distribution in book stores and online everywhere. This is the stirring biography of one of America’s most noted, dedicated and decorated heroes. From his beginnings in the military, to his courageous climb in civil service and political station in government office, his career was a true and valiantly fought war of a different kind…for the rights and dignity of the US warrior and private citizen of the United States. Every soldier honors his country, his fellow military brother or sister and those who have passed in valor by committing to memory and living by the very principles that make the American soldier the best and toughest fighting machine in the world…the Military Code of Conduct…brought about by the work of William E Mayer, MD in the study of POW’s and their behavior following the Korean War.

Dr. Mayer relates with great candor, the unvarnished realities of dealing with medical incompetence, how it happens and why it happens with great clarity and brutal honesty. He recorded each event of his personal missions over the tours of duty in some of the hottest combat zones of Korea, the Middle East and Washington DC. Dr. Mayer was never a shy, retiring type, but a warrior who welcomed the challenge to get it right, correct it now and build it strong with conviction, drive and purpose.

From his broad perspective as a dedicated military officer, Assistant US Secretary of Defense and Assistant U.S. Surgeon General, these books expose the unsavory secrets of political incompetence and corrupt practices that were in his charge to fix and then police. He became one of the most respected physicians in government. He will take you there word by word, action by action and event by event in these two volumes that you will never put down until finished. He is charming, witty, poignant and sometimes brutal, but will never polish the truth.

“Beyond the Call, Memoirs of a Medical Visionary” is published by Mayer, Publishing Group International located in University Place, Washington and Albuquerque New Mexico. The book is available directly from http://www.amazon.com, or your local bookstore. Dealer discounts offered through Baker & Taylor & Ingram.

One of Them: A First Responder’s Story

One of the first responders who helped clear debris and search for bodies at the World Trade Center site is hoping President-elect Barack Obama doesn’t repeat the mistakes made by the Bush administration in handling the care of his fellow volunteers.

Steven Centore, a nuclear physicist and Navy veteran, was one of the many volunteers who assisted in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack.

Unfortunately, as do many of the other rescue workers, Mr. Centore now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and other medically debilitating ailments that have kept him from working. These conditions have required endless surgeries and physical therapy to treat.

In his book, One of Them: A First Responder’s Story, Mr. Centore details the neglect and mistreatment he and his fellow volunteers have suffered at the hands of the government.

“The Bush administration really fumbled this issue,” says Mr. Centore, a lifelong Republican. “The attacks of that day are still having an effect on this country in the wars we fight overseas. But they’re also having an effect here at home.”

Mr. Centore spent months at the World Trade Center and says that exposure to the toxins in the air at the site have crippled or killed thousands of first responders. His book includes some shocking statistics about the health of first responders, including:

• 4,517 people with upper respiratory ailments
• 3,857 with lower respiratory illness
• 398 with lung disease
• 2,616 with asthma
• 1,340 with sleep apnea
• 2,528 with heart conditions caused or worsened by 9/11

“I was appalled at the lack of support and meager financial resources provided to 9/11 first responders by the US government,” says Mr. Centore, who has testified before Congress about the thousands of people just like him who were told that the air at the WTC site was not dangerous.

He adds, “I wanted to tell the story of how I became ill, what the government did and did not do for me, and what happened to me as a result. I’d like to shed some light on the cover-ups that the government has been perpetrating in the news.”

As the country’s economic crisis worsens even while the US government pumps billions of dollars into failing banks and industries, another major threat to the nation’s financial stability is going unnoticed

As the country’s economic crisis worsens even while the US government pumps billions of dollars into failing banks and industries, another major threat to the nation’s financial stability is going unnoticed.

A particularly insidious form of pollution called “stray voltage” is impacting the health and agricultural sectors of American life and business, and the financial consequences could be enormous. 

Stray voltage — electrical current that travels through the ground and the infrastructure we all touch every day — has escaped the attention of major media. But its effect on the economy might be just as devastating as errant Wall Street banks, according to one expert.

Russ Allen, author of Electrocution of America: Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?, says, “Stray voltage is a massive tax on the American economy because it causes health problems for people and losses in revenue for farms across the country. The cost to the government could be in the billions.”

Mr. Allen also notes, “Because so many Americans are uninsured, and because stray voltage has been shown to exacerbate conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis, the effect on the economy has been massive. The only problem is that no one is noticing.” 

Stray voltage has been deemed dangerous enough in Wisconsin, Michigan and Canada that legislation was introduced in an effort to regulate it. Most of that legislation has not passed and most people don’t know that it likely runs through the pipes of their homes, showers and pools, and that is has killed people, according to Mr. Allen.

In Electrocution of America, Mr. Allen explores the cost of stray voltage to the economy through his own multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Wisconsin Public Service, which he won. 

“I wasn’t the only one affected. This happens all over the place,” says Mr. Allen. 

According to Electrocution of America, stray voltage hurts the economy in the following ways: 

• Increasing hospital visits 
• Loss of work time due to illness
• Fines and lawsuits resulting from stray voltage mishaps
• Decreased production of product on America’s farms

Russ Allen lives outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and is a leader in the movement against electrical pollution animals. He won a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Wisconsin Public Service for the damage they caused because of a poorly designed electrical distribution system.
