Sea Shepherd Terrorists Throwing Bottles Containing Butric Acid at Whaling Ship

In my article on "The Way One Vike Sees it" blog about the Whale Wars, I said that the packets of rancid butter and other food items at the fishermen could cause a fisherman to get sick from food poisoning if hit in the mouth;

As it turns out, the actual contents of the smelly bombs is butyric acid. Butyric acid actually does have effects that can effect humans in a dangerous way. Researchers have even stated that if butryic acid gets in the eys it can leave the person permanently blind. Interesting because the Terrorists also use lasers that can blind people, all this is known by the terrorists that are members of the Sea Shepherd gouop. This from>.

Hazards Identification

Potential Acute Health Effects:
Very hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of ingestion. Hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant), of inhalation. Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive, permeator). Liquid or spray mist may produce tissue damage particularly on mucous membranes of eyes, mouth and respiratory tract. Skin contact may produce burns. Inhalation of the spray mist may produce severe irritation of respiratory tract, characterized by coughing, choking, or shortness of breath.

Hazards Identification

: Not available.
The substance is toxic to lungs, the nervous system, mucous membranes. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated or prolonged contact with spray mist may produce chronic eye irritation and severe skin irritation.

Now if you are hit in the mouth and accidentally digest this substance, this is what they advise;

First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Cold water may be used.Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.
Serious Skin Contact: Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate medical attention.
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention. Serious Inhalation: Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

It may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

So I guess in my attempt to show the Sea Shepherd terrorists as being extreme by using extreme descriptions for the smelly bombs effects on humans, was actually a lot closer to the truth then I thought. Amazing ain't it?

Check out this two video and you will see them throwing the bottles.
