Burning Human Waste - Another Toxic Tale






by George Claxton

I have been reading the articles on cancer from burn pits in the Gulf Wars. Also, I have been wondering about why there has been no investigation on the burning of human waste with fuel oil in Vietnam and probably in the Gulf Wars.

Everyone in Vietnam knows that the burning of human waste with fuel oil was a daily occurance in Vietnam. The combustion of fuel oil creates dioxins and difurans. This was documented by the study titled "Dioxins in Diesel Exhaust" which was written by C. Clunies-Ross and published in the journal Nature; volume 381, page 379, on May 30, 1996.

There is no question that human waste burners were exposed to massive amounts of smoke from the burning. Also, the burn pits in the Gulf almost certainly created dioxin's because of the plastic material that was burned. I have many studies on both of these issues. I have submitted my comments to Senator Carl Levin in Michigan and I'm sure he will get back to me. I just hope it will not be too late.

  3. Mr. Claxton, I had Email the Department of Veterans Affairs. About Burning Human Waste in Vietnam, I also Burned Human Waste for Two Weeks Straight and some in RVN Phu Loi. We got in Country in April of 67 to May or June of 68. Anyhow I wrote to the VA and asked them, how about the Vietnam Veterans. What's going to happen to us? They got back to me and had told me, to See my Doctor. Mr. Claxton, you have a pretty Good Wed Site. Anyway, they couldn't help me. Now I'm trying to see my Doctor and see if I have any Sickness from Burning Shit.

  5. I was in Qui Nhon, the burning of human waste was done daily there also, only good thing it was the Vietnamese that were doing it there. Unless of course you pissed someone off or got an Article 15.
