This is a brief essay about an often overlooked aspect of this whole “cooties” scenario.
At 42 min into this video, Sofia Smallstorm mentions her concern about the use of toxic disinfectants being used in public spaces. Dr. Kaufman describes how he has seen the use of these at his local supermarket. There is much more scintillating material covered in this video as well, so it is well worth your time to listen in full, in my opinion.
One day this month, I decided to embark on a food shopping trip to our “local” (it’s actually 25 minutes away) large chain of natural supermarkets. It was my first visit there since this whole event began, because I have been consciously choosing to support smaller mom & pop natural heath food stores. I noticed the cashier at the checkout was spraying down the conveyor belt with a substance. I asked if I could take a photo of the bottle she was using.
She kindly obliged. I asked her if that specific product was being used throughout the store to disinfect surfaces, and she confirmed that is indeed the sole product that all employees have been given to use for this purpose.
I just want to link a few sources of information (the J-512 Safety Data Sheet and two articles with numerous citations) on the particular product they are using, as these sources indicate that this product may be toxic. In fact, according to the company’s Safety Data Sheet, this product is registered with the EPA as a pesticide (EPA Reg. No. : 70627-63). One of the main ingredients identified is Alkyl dimethyl ethyl benzyl ammonium chloride – which is in the class of chemicals called Quaternary ammonium compounds, or Quats, for short. Please read this article, and this article, for more detailed information.
I find it curious that Quats (as discussed in the above articles) not only cause eye irritation and rashes, but also chronic respiratory conditions, asthma and decreased lung function (precisely what COVID is supposed to cause) — not to mention the potential to cause superbug resistance (that is a controversial conversation for another day though).
My position remains that we are not being bombarded by an invisible virus that is out to attack us, but rather, we are being violated with propaganda coming from every which way. However, I do perceive that if we frequent public spaces in which these chemicals are being overused, we ARE being potentially harmed by something that is nearly invisible.
Just a side note: When I arrived to the market and proceeded to grab a shopping cart (Oh no, without gloves and without a mask!), the store employee standing outside exclaimed that I was grabbing the wrong cart, and it was not cleaned yet and I needed to obtain a “clean” one from inside. I told her it was not a problem for me to just take the one I had already touched, and she replied, “Ma’am, that’s not how we roll here. Please grab a clean one from inside.”
What’s going on here? I would say Quats’ going on here!
