Casey Lee Cobb | Show The Law | October 20th 2007
As revealed in a recent phone interview between Shaun Kranish and Ed Brown. Ed Brown has made serious allegations that he was subjected to what he perceived to be Benzene Poisoning via the ventilation system in his prison cell for 3 days straight, while in the custody of US marshals in a Rhode Island detention facility.
The 65 year old tax honesty advocate reported that he was gassed, and it smelled of benzene. The now raspy voiced Ed Brown began to relay his experience on how he had to lay on the floor and breathe in the oxygen that came through the crack of the door in order to survive, he also reported that he lost consciousness a few times due to the alleged gassing.
This author takes these allegations very seriously and encourages you to do the same. Yes, Ed Brown is guilty of asking a question.

FYI: The knowledge of problems relating to benzene exposure are thought to date back as far as 1897, when there were case reports of blood disease caused by exposure to the chemical. In 1928 the first report that showed that Benzene could cause leukaemia was published. This was followed in the late 1940s by a toxicity review by the American Petroleum Institute, which showed that high level Benzene exposure caused leukaemia. Another study into the matter was conducted in 1977, and another report was filed regarding the link between Benzene and leukaemia. Other studies conducted since that time have confirmed the link between the chemical and leukaemia.
