Unseen Toxins = Unknown Exposure
In an article written by Paul Ryan, of the St. Petersburg Health Care Examiner, it describes how in the recent Ironman competition in Florida over 1800 athletes, including Lance Armstrong, were exposed to toxins and experienced many side effects as a result.
“Unknowingly, they were exposed to toxins and chemicals in the waters of Lake Eva,” as the race organizers and city officials neglected to properly test and treat the lake in a timely manner before the athletes were to swim in it. “Public information that was readily available listed Lake Eva as “Impaired” by The Environmental Protection Agency and no one paid attention.”
Neuromuscular complaints were cited by many of the athletes during and after the competition. Severe muscle cramps and “tingling” sensations were the most common symptoms experienced after just standing in the waters of Lake Eva. It is not known if these symptoms are a part of a larger toxic poisoning and will continue to be troublesome for these athletes later in life.
The application of Aquathol nine days prior to the race could have something to do with the reported symptoms. It is a deadly toxin to mammals and causes the same symptoms the athletes experienced. Reports have shown that toxins like these can be absorbed through the skin of aquatic wildlife and presumably humans.
