Arsenic Contamination
Groundwater in a large part of the Bengal Basin contains high levels of arsenic. Large number of people of India and Bangladesh are compelled to drink water having arsenic concentration above the permissible limit.

At present, the primary source of drinking water in rural areas is the private domestic tube wells, which withdraws water from shallow aquifers (50 to 200 ft). Data from different sources indicate high arsenic content in water from such shallow aquifers in extensive areas in the delta. However, in many areas the deeper (> 500 ft) aquifers too show arsenic content above the permissible limit of 0.05 mg/litre according to the Indian standards.

Several countries in the world suffer from arsenic contamination of groundwater. The highest magnitude of this contamination is seen in Bangladesh and West Bengal. But in other parts of the world, e.g. Mongolia, Brazil, United States, Argentina, Ghana, Nepal, Pakistan etc are worst effected. In India, arsenic contamination is reported from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Tripura and Assam.

Arsenic Toxicity
Acute: severe abdominal pain, fever, cardiac arrhythmia.
Chronic: muscle weakness and pain, gross edema, Gastrointestinal disturbances, liver and kidney damage, swelling of peripheral nerves (neuritis), paralysis, liver injury, jaundice, peripheral vascular disease - blackfoot disease. Chronic drinking water exposure causes cancer (skin, lung and other organs).

Fluoride Contamination
Fluoride is another toxic material generally present in ground water. Prolonged drinking of water containing high fluoride may cause degeneration of bone and teeth. This is called fluorosis. About 300 people from the village of Nasipur (with a population of about 2000) in Birbhum, have been paralysed after drinking water contaminated with fluoride. According to media report, the local residents claim that the number is more than 1200. Investigations have proved that the fluoride content in Nasipur's water is 14 ppm, against the permissible limit of 1 to 1.5 ppm. There are other districts in West Bengal where fluoride is also found in groundwater.

Fluoride contamination in groundwater is not new in India. Fluoride above toxic limit is found in groundwater of many states like Jharkhand, Assam, Meghalaya, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Chhattishgarh, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh. In West Bengal presence of fluoride in groundwater has been detected in the year 1998 by the State Water Investigation Directorate, West Bengal. It was found that in a single village of Birbhum district about 2000 people fell victim of the contamination.

Fluoride is readily incorporated into the crystalline structure of bone, and accumulates over time. The condition of fluoride poisoning is called skeletal fluorosis which increases risks of bone fracture. Skeletal fluorosis is a bone and joint condition associated with prolonged exposure to high concentrations of fluoride. Fluoride increases bone density and causes changes in the bone that lead to joint stiffness and pain.

Arsenic and fluoride contamination in groundwater are geogenic in nature. Detection of contamination through hydrogeological investigation is the only preventive measure.

    "Something happened (which casued the market to fall to 6500.)" Told managers of CalPers funds to sell/manipulated CalPers' holdings?
    Allowed the hustlers who got out of the market at/near its peak 90s, into real estate, out at real eastate market peak 05-07 to buy stocks dirt cheap and get back into the market at 6500.

    In the course of decay and deterioration of the favor of the people the gods instructed their clone host tools in corporate to make changes to their products and subsequently in people's lives. The switch to plastic/disposable-based packaging is an outstanding example. Another is the extensive use/proliferation of disposable diapers. Whereas diaper services were the norm during the 20th cenutry a change occurred in the 70s/80s and parents began to incurr evil upon their children, and sadly in some cases think they were "earning" off their own infant children!!!

    Anyways, why I bring this up is I am watching the South PArk's rendition of Scientology's dogma. They mention Xena, ruler of the last planet.
    Recall I said only the true believers in JEsus will last to the end of the 1000 years and be used to colonize the next Planet Earth (with Lucifer, who will initiate disfavor on the new planet).
    Don't be surprised if the last Jesus's name WAS Xena. Maybe a stretch but nothing surprises me.
    Perhaps the volcano metaphor suggests destruction by subduction. I have mentioned massive, global subduction as a method of demise in the past.

    "Poisoning their brainwashed minds." xtainity brainwashed you. Liberalism is the poison.
    The gods used xtainity to demonize Lucifer, ensuring people refused to heed the teachings of THE SECOND COMING!!!. Lucifer is the Second Coming of Christ!!!
    xtianity is the product of the Apostle's books of the New Testiment and can't be trusted to contain the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Just like each one of you corrupt whores, the gods could have tempted them with immortality if they lied when writing the New Tesatiment. Then the gods dictated verbatim specifically to parlay into the destructive phenominah known as xtianity.
    We have seen the gods engage in similar behavior to keep people away from good religions, with the Jews in Palestine and Muslims recently post-9.11, demonizing both.
    This is another of the god's wicked curveballs, their reverse positioning tool extensively employed, utilizing positioning to prepare for the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".

    "1000 years with Jesus" may start at different times for different people::::
    Medical advances I mention below may already be invented, courtesy of biotechnology, but reserved for the wealthy.
    Proof money is not favor:::Not only will they die before the masses, since their clock began sooner, but some of these individuals may have been "guinea pigs" in the perfection of these advances.
    Just clone host fakes who were sold they are the lucky ones anyways.
