Contaminated American Drywall – The Silent Killer
Updated – August 18, 2014
I started this website Contaminated American Drywall at the end of January 2013. My main purpose was to inform, educate, and try to save lives of known victims, and those unsuspecting victims, who may have purchased one of the thousands of newly built or foreclosed homes. From the inception of the website, to the present day where I have some assistance from a few sources because of the volume of calls and emails, I have been able to help many individuals and families. Every family that I have helped and tests were sent to the labs, 100% have come back positive.
Although I deal primarily in Toxic American Drywall, I will not turn away anyone that possibly might have Chinese Drywall. I consider myself an expert in both American and Chinese Toxic Drywall, after almost 7 years of study, being a “Victim”, and working as an advocate to those in need. I want to give you one of the latest updates that seems to escape the news media, as I consider this a major development in the recent months.
We have been waiting for over two years for a Health Consult from the Center Of Disease Control. They were to release this in May of 2012, but continued with a multitude of excuses. Everyone who was a Victim knew that they were holding out until most of the Chinese Drywall Settlements had been approved, before they would release these documents. The main reason also was that for the last few years they had been concealing the fact that there was also Toxic American Drywall. They were hiding this under the guise of Chinese Drywall.
So on May 2, 2014, the (CDC) Center for Disease Control published a Health Consult that FINALLY recognizes both Chinese and American Toxic Drywall. It also lists all the medical Symptoms that are associated with these Toxic Drywalls. All of the above symptoms are identical to what all the Victims have been saying across the entire United States. We have also made some additional discoveries and have also learned that each American brand drywall, even though the end results are the same, have some individual characteristics.
We are also finding that some new homes built in 2013, and even some built in 2014 have exhibited some of the same symptoms, as previously built homes during 2004 to 2009. Most of these homes have an ASTM number of C36. But in these new homes they have the new drywall with the latest edge tape, and the newest ASTM C1396. In my home I have United States Gypsum SHEETROCK Drywall. My lab testing registered CARBON DISULFIDE, ACETONE, and TH228 (RADIATION), and a few other chemicals that didn’t belong.
My builder is ADAMS HOMES OF NORTHWEST FLORIDA, INC., a large builder that builds in 7 states. They have built THOUSANDS of homes in North Port, Florida and the surrounding area. I have found additional homes just like mine, as well as other models that my builder built, that has the same characteristics as my TOXIC drywall home. I have found so many homes, businesses, and even Government buildings that have the same characteristics of other Contaminated buildings, I had to stop putting them on my website, and instead just file them in my folder.
My website CONTAMINATED AMERICAN DRYWALL is still and will always remain unsponsored, because it is a tell it like it is, no holds barred website. I will print any name if they are the guilty culprit, and in the last 16 months not one individual has attempted any kind of legal action against me, because I will only print the truth. Everything on my website, I can back up with data and in black and white. You can’t fight the truth and facts!
I am a 100% Disabled Vietnam Veteran, who was exposed to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam. Many years later it is unfair that ADAMS HOMES OF NORTHWEST FLORIDA, INC. built a home that contained TOXIC AMERICAN DRYWALL. The facts are what they are – and that is this builder has had all this time to step up to the plate, and make things right. Yet they chose to deny and do nothing. I bought my home in July 2007, and since 2009 I have had 8 hospital stays, which resulted in major damage to my heart and other vital organs.
I do what I do because I am a man of Honor, and I don’t want to see other people purchase one of these Toxic homes and become as sick as I and other Victims have in the past number of years. In North Port alone there are presently 1300 homes that are vacant, as of this time, and our studies and random sampling indicates that many of these homes possibly have the same characteristics as our own Toxic homes have.
