STUDY SAYS NO OIL OR DEADLY CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS.


BOGOTA. Crude oil, gasoline or motor fuel oil are not lethal and does not cause birth defects or reproductive effects, according to a Colombian oil toxicity in rats known today in Bogota. The investigation of three phases, was conducted by experts from the Empresa Colombiana de Petroleos (Ecopetrol, state) in agreement with the laboratory Inmunopharmos, specialized and internationally certified in toxicity testing.

 

"The results are striking," said biologist Ricardo Restrepo, a specialist in environmental engineering and environmental chemical formed by the oil company, the team director of the study, whose findings were advanced in an oil and gas conference convened in Bogota .

 

Restrepo said the investigation was initiated in 2005 and from the necessity of "establishing exactly what the effects of hydrocarbons in mammals."

 

Frequent spills by installing illegal to steal fuel valves and constant rebel bomb attacks on oil pipelines in the past were evident in the state-owned convenience of this study.
