Ammonium perchlorate (NH4ClO4), the oxidizing agent in solidl rocket fuel, has been found in ground water, lettuce, cows' milk and now mothers milk across the USA.

by James K. Sayre

In another dismal chapter of the arrogance, stupidity and short-sightedness of the American corporate-industrial-military-greed complex, scientific studies over the last several years have revealed that traces of ammonium perchlorate (NH4ClO4), the oxidizing agent in solid rocket fuel, have been found in ground water, lettuce, cows' milk and now mothers milk across the USA. This chemical contamination is pervasive and will be long-lasting. Cleanup, if possible, will be expensive. Isn't it great how the powers-that-be in our pseudo-democracy have managed to stage hundreds of secret universal toxic chemical experiments over the last sixty years or so with us and the natural environment as the guinea pigs. Now each of us carry inside of us, traces of dozens of toxic chemicals, which were all created, distributed and used supposedly to "help us" in our search for a better standard of living, better food and more security in this life. Brilliant.
