Evidence For Atmospheric Aerosol Spraying
Often when the topic of "chemtrails" come up, the knee-jerk response is to view them as "conspiracy theory," owing to the fact that the evidence of our senses -- i.e. actually seeing them with our eyes -- is not considered evidence enough. We are made to believe that only Science, and its primarily excreta - peer-reviewed, published research - can vindicate eye witness or anecdotal accounts.
Those who debunk the notion that the increasingly prevalent 'persistent contrails' we see all around us contain anything other than water vapor and/or ice crystals, forbid their existence a priori, often claiming there is no substantiation from authoritative sources that #1: they exist, and #2: they contribute to illness.
What better place, therefore, than to look to the National Library of Medicine, the source and the "gold standard" for this much-needed "authoritative evidence" that aircraft are spraying anything of a chemical nature at all.
On MEDLINE the topic of "atmospheric aerosal spraying" does, in fact, come up. One author in particular suggests that chronic barium exposure and intoxication may be occurring from atmospheric aerosol spraying, done "for enhancing/refracting the signalling of radio/radar waves along military jet flight paths, missile test ranges, etc." He believes barium may be responsible for the high incidence clustering of multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases such as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in certain regions where it is a major environmental contaminant.
In a second article on the same topic the same author identifies Silver (Ag), Barium (Ba) and Strontium (Sr) and low levels of copper (Cu) as having accumulated in the food chain due, in part, to "aerial spraying with 'cloud seeding' Ag or Ba crystal nuclei for rain making in these drought-prone areas of North America, the atmospheric spraying with Ba based aerosols for enhancing/refracting radar and radio signal communications..." The bioaccumulation of these elements into the food chain can result in a neurodegenerative process that can be confused with transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) of infectious origin.
Another study published in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety in 2002, reports that "Over the last 25 years, several hundred thousand pounds of aluminized chaff have been released during flight operations over a training area on the Chesapeake Bay." Another article, in the same journal the same year, states that "At least 500 tons of chaff is released annually during training within selected military operating areas in the United States." The article also describes the nature of the chemical being released in more detail:
