Kyoto Hemp Forum Notes - Hemp Phytoremediation for Lead Poisoning

There was an amazing meeting in Kyoto, Japan on July 2, 2016, the Kyoto Hemp Forum, produced by the Japan Hemp Association. The event discussed the hemp solution to climate change

This international gathering radically intensified research on the need to, as Paul Stanford says, RESTORE HEMP! The group is going forward to promote and unite farmers to get hemp and other phytoremediation seeds into the ground.

In addition to climate change, hemp phytoremediation removes many toxic metals from the soil with its 6 foot root system. One of those metals is lead, a cause of many physical health problems and violent behavior.



CNN’s United Shades covered the violence in CamdenNJ a town with a lead problem since the last century. There's also Flint where the government intentionally put lead in the water and many other places. The water from Flint runs into Detroit. Chicago has old lead pipes built into its infrastructure. The list of areas with a lead problem is long and unattended. 

There is plenty of evidence that lead causes violent behavior going back to when ancient Rome, that used lead pipes to get water from the aqueducts to homes.

The condition was called plumber's or painter's colic, or even further back to the theory that 'Nero fiddled while Rome burned' was in reference to the people driven mad from the lead pipes bringing water to the aqueduct. We can do a lot to save ourselves with a little bit of common sense. 

When the problem is violence the solution is to restore peace. When the problem is lead as a cause of violent behavior, the solution is to clean up and/or safely restore the excess lead to it's natural position in the world. 

LEAD CAUSES VIOLENT BEHAVIOR - GET THE LEAD OUT! 

How? Use hemp to clean the soil via the science of phytoremediation.. 

Phytoextraction 

"Phytoextraction has been proven effective at a brownfields site in Trenton, New Jersey for remediation of lead-contaminated shallow soils (Blaylock et al., 1996). Approximately 50% of the lead was removed from the surface soil (~ 700 mg/kg) in order to achieve clean-up standards (400 mg/kg) in one year using Brassica juncea, a relative of the mustard family. For phytoextraction to be effective, one needs vigorously growing plants (> 3 tons dry matter/acre-yr), an easily harvestable aboveground portion, and a plant that accumulates large amounts of metals (~ 1000 mg/kg) in aboveground biomass. To achieve clean-up within three to five years, the plant must accumulate about ten times the level in soil (for example, if the level in soil is 500 mg/kg, then the concentration in the plant must be almost 5000 mg/kg to clean-up the soil in a few years). Some sites have metals that are bioavailable while others do not. Generally, cadmium, nickel, zinc, arsenic, and copper are relatively bioavailable while lead, chromium, and uranium are not taken-up and translocated to the harvestable biomass. Plants which accumulate nickel, cobalt, copper, manganese, lead, zinc, and selenium have been reported in the literature (Kumar et al., 1995). Zinc and boron are phytotoxic to some plants at levels above 200 mg/kg in soil. Addition of EDTA (0.5 to 10 µg EDTA/kg soil) has greatly enhanced the bioavailability of lead, but the enhancement must be weighed against the increased probability of lead migration to groundwater. Mathematical modeling of water movement and metals transport may be required to further understand the fate of lead under these conditions." (page 14, page 18 of the .pdf)

Use 5D, 4D and 3D printing in hemp to rebuild our infrastructure using hemp as the primary raw resource material. 

Clean water on the memory level i.e. Jungle Secret Water to remove both physical and mental health toxins that are proven to be a cause of violence. 


Above plants grown under identical conditions
with and without Jungle Secret Water.

We must act now! A key to reducing violence is to remove the excess lead and other toxins that are harming us. We must combine science and common sense to reach necessary truths so we can restore balance. 

As was the case with crack and AIDS, the victims of government policies are blamed for not being able to overcome the scientific results. A report called The Color Of Crime, 2016 Edition was published that says the USA violence problem is rooted in race:

• "The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes. • There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups. • In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non-black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race."Once again, it is time to look beyond the effect and get to the real cause of violence. I grew up in a large family in the middle of the last century with a back porch full of guns. Nobody shot anybody. 

 

The report does not factor in what's called environmental racism, where minority communities are subjected to excess amounts of lead and other toxins. For example, with buildings from the 1930's and 40's still standing in use, Harlem is surrounded by 5 open sewers, 3 of 4 sides with major highways in close range that use to throw off lead from the cars, etc. 

Of course with nuclear, fracking, GMO's, oil spill technology, etc., it's getting environmentally bad for all of us.

I'm still researching and putting this tapestry together. What if hemp can help reduce violence and lead poisoning? What if the peace pipe gives folks an opportunity to engage in non-violent conflict resolution? Can medical marijuana, like Rick Simpson's Oil, help with physical conditions created by lead exposure, which is creating a lot of stress in people's lives? We already know based on results the answer to those questions.  

Below is a list of studies, papers, articles on the subject of lead as a cause of violent behavior i.e. Harvard paper and a Mother Jones piece. Forbes  also has an excellent article on the subject.

My blog entry Phytoremediation - Nature's Peaceful Solution To Industrial Pollution has many articles and videos on the science of phytoremediation, i.e. 


"Overall, phytoremediation has great potential for cleaning up toxic metals, pesticides, solvents, gasoline, and explosives. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more than 30,000 sites in the United States alone require hazardous waste treatment. Restoring these areas and their soil, as well as disposing of the wastes, are costly projects, but the costs are expected to be reduced drastically if plants provide the phytoremediation results everyone is hoping for." 

Let me know what you think, please.

Thanks.

J. Nayer Hardin, Computer Underground Railroad



While working with Takashi Okanuma of the Japan Hemp Association on what has evolved into the Kyoto Hemp Forum, I was asked for a bio piece. Crushing 63 years of life into 4 minutes and 20 something seconds was an interesting yet necessary task. 

I am J. Nayer Hardin, founder of and a conductor on the Computer Underground Railroad, a cyber division of the original. My mission since 1984 is to use computers and other technology to help people be free.  

In that role I am a cyber activist who works to close the digital divide, end the drug war, use cannabis to help folks heal, promote the many ways 3D printing, especially in hemp, can solve problems like hunger, homelessness and climate change. I am also a clean energy advocate, researcher and a patent holding inventor US Patent No 5,188,321.

The Underground Railroad is a cyber division of the original. I was raised for that position from my grandmother's weekly missionary meetings. Mother Clara Hale commissioned me to use technology to help people be free, bridging the digital divide to save lives.  Mother Hale and her daughter Clara came to one of my dinner parties. Mother Hale told me, who was enjoying life in mid town Manhattan in the 1980's, that something was going on with computers and Harlem was being left out. She said it was my responsibility to do something about it.  She let me know further instructions would come in prayer. She was right.

So one day I screamed in meditation, 'I understand I am suppose to go forward, but I'm standing in the middle of an empty circle, how do I know which way is forward?'

A woman's voice spoke back to me, like a light tap on the back of the head, 'Forward is in the direction of the Lord, Love, the one who made and spins your atoms.' 

I saw the path. 'O.K. How is this to be pulled off, without make up?'

'The old Underground Railroad model is available. Those who temporarily have more share with those who temporarily have less so everybody has in abundance.' 

As a computer diva since the 1970's, with my personal Emancipation Proclamation Day as 7/7/77, when I started working on computers full time, what I have plenty of is computer love and passion, which I joyously share.  

My background includes:

• 1972-1984 Corporate career at NBC, CBS, ABC and other New York media companies where she learned about and worked on word processors / computers

• 1984-1988 Evangelical, independent computer trainer and provider of computer services to small businesses (business plans, flyers, mailers, etc.) 

• 1988-98 With Bernie Hirschenson and others great souls, Esteban Granados, Jacquie Hardin Bailey, Kathy Korpi, Linda Humes, Iro Joe Lewis, Melinda Maxwell-Gibb, David Gibb, Margaret Inge, Lisa Nelson, Selma Epstein, Ayo Adeyemi, Ellie Jones, Gail Julius, Bernard Block, C.C. Bronson, Sanga and many others co-created and ran a computer renaissance center. 

In response to my extensive computer injuries, Bernie and I invented and patented CompUrest #5,188,321 that healed my computer injuries within 30 days. More than a quarter century later, with regular use, the injuries never returned.
  • Trained over 3,000 folks in New York how to compute. Researched and shared environmental information, i.e. Harlem surrounded by 5 open sewers.
• 1998-Present Hemp, environmental and cyber activist. Helped publish 7 books [history; hemp and global warming / medical cannabis / economy; free energy; art and injustice]

Cyber working with her husband, inventor Sherwood Akuna, Akuna Brass Catcher, who she met while organizing the first Los Angeles then called Million Marijuana March in 1999 

Ibogaine, 9/11 Truth, nuclear balance and new age printing innovator.

Proposed Peace Plan:

• Peace pipe, create the highest good for all concerned.

• Phytoremediate in hemp, mushrooms, thistle & sunflowers to clean the air and soil. 

• Print monolithic dome shielding around all toxic sources using 3d printing’s contour crafting in hempcrete, lead, tungsten, magnets, borates and hemp plastic.  

• Pot, cannabis for cancers and seizures. Ibogaine for drug addictions.

• Promote hemp as a way to lend a hand to the farmers and ourselves.

Phytoremediation - Nature's Peaceful Solution To Industrial Pollution




We have a responsibility to provide for at least 7 generations ahead. Phytoremediation is a tool we can use to achieve that goal.

How do we know that phytoremediation works
to help us heal our environmental crisis? 

Below are some links, videos, books and experts
on 
phytoremediation as
a tool to solve 
many pollution problems, 
CO2 induced climate change, 
nuclear plants and waste, 
oil, lead, heavy metals, etc. 
plus additional
reference videos.

Please share any additional information
on this subject in the comments section below.


"In 1998, Phytotech, along with Consolidated Growers and Processors (CGP) and the Ukraine's Institute of Bast Crops, planted industrial hemp, Cannabis sp., for the purpose of removing contaminants near the Chernobyl site. Cannabis is in the Cannabidaceae family and is valuable for its fiber, which is used in ropes and other products. This industrial variety of hemp, incidentally, has only trace amounts of THC, the chemical that produces the "high" in a plant of the same genus commonly known as marijuana."




"Hemp and cesium accumulation • A study done in 2005 by Vandenhove and He's tested hemp's ability to uptake of radiocesium. – Sandy soils used to emulate Chernobyl conditions – Used a lysimeter and pots in greenhouse. • Soil was contaminated with approx. 326 kBq/kg in pots and 13.0 kBq/kg in the lysimeter and harvested after 186/136 days. • Chernobyl accident was contaminated at 1480 kBq/m^2" 



'Plant's ability to grow and thrive'
are shown to improve with





"Hemp Cleans is currently supporting research into development of cultivars which will be ideally suited to Colorado’s climate. The seed stock developed as a result of this research will be used for the purposes of expanding the phytoremediation pilot project to include evaluations of cultivation in fire-scorched alpine soils and saline agricultural environments."




"Overall, phytoremediation has great potential for cleaning up toxic metals, pesticides, solvents, gasoline, and explosives. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more than 30,000 sites in the United States alone require hazardous waste treatment. Restoring these areas and their soil, as well as disposing of the wastes, are costly projects, but the costs are expected to be reduced drastically if plants provide the phytoremediation results everyone is hoping for." 
       


"We all know that hemp was helpful in cleaning up the toxins around Chernobyl, and with a bit of planning by a mastermind alliance, can be used to clean up the environmental mess again.  

An immediate end to hemp prohibition will allow us to use this biomass champion in a hemp phytoremediation program.   

"Phytoremediation can be defined as the decontamination of soil, sediment or water using plant growth. Industrial hemp, Cannabis sativa L., is renowned for its ability to grow rapidly. In one growing season, fibre hemp can yield 250 to 400 plants per square metre, with each plant reaching up to 5 metres in height. As a result, hemp has been identified as a plant with the potential to serve as a phytoremediator."

The same way hemp was used to clean up the toxins around Chernobyl, we should be using hemp to clean up the toxins from the Gulf of Mexico "oil spill" (more like a volcano) and other environmental crisis situations.




"Why Use Phytoremediation? EPA uses phytoremediation for many reasons. It takes advantage of natural plant processes and requires less equipment and labor than other methods since plants do most of the work. Also, the site can be cleaned up without digging up and hauling soil or pumping groundwater, which saves energy. Trees and smaller plants used in phytoremediation help control soil erosion, make a site more attractive, reduce noise, and improve surrounding air quality. Phytoremediation has been successfully used at many sites, including at least 10 Superfund sites across the country"

"In the late 1990s industrial hemp was tested at the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine to help heal the soil. Because of the quick rate in which it grows, up to 250 to 400 plants (15t in height) per square meter, industrial hemp showed it could clean the land of contaminated pollutants like sewer sludge, fly ash, and other metals. In 1989, three years after the explosion, the Soviet government asked the International Atomic Energy Agency to assess the radiological and health situation in the area around the power plant. Toxic metals and radioactive emissions were contaminating the dirt, plants, and animals. Iodine, cesium-137, strontium, and plutonium were among some of the harmful toxins infesting nearly everything in the surrounding area.
A soil cleanup method was proposed using green plants to remove the toxins from the soil in a technique called phytoremediation. This was the term created by Dr. Ilya Raskin of Rutgers University. He was one of the original members of the team who was asked to examine food safety at the Chernobyl site. Phytoremediation is a process that takes advantage of the fact that green plants can extract and concentrate certain elements within their ecosystem. Some plants can grow in metal-laden soils, extract certain metals through their roots, and accumulate them in their tissues without being damaged. In this way, pollutants are either removed from the soil and groundwater or rendered harmless. This complex filtering system would prove to be effective in sucking out pollutants and leaving only the natural, fresh, soil. Much like a maggot might be used to clean a wound.
There are a handful of scientists, researchers, and companies funding efforts to test the different varieties of plants that can be used in this process to clean polluted soils, and make no mistake, industrial hemp is at the forefront."

9. Hemp and the Decontamination of Radioactive Soil  http://sensiseeds.com/en/blog/hemp-decontamination-radioactive-soil/
"As a proven, valuable tool in the fight to repair human-inflicted damage to our soils and ecosystems, hemp could potentially benefit hundreds of thousands of sites across the globe—it is estimated that in the USA alone there are 30,000 sites requiring remediation. As is so often the case, US restrictions on hemp cultivation preclude any large-scale operations from being implemented, and the contaminated sites are largely left unremediated, through lack of both funding and interest on the part of the government."


Though not hemp specific it's USGS take on phytoremediation

"Phytoremediation - "Phytoremediation uses plants to clean up pollution in the environment. Plants can help clean up many kinds of pollution including metals, pesticides, explosives, and oil. The plants also help prevent wind, rain, and groundwater from carrying pollution away from sites to other areas. Phytoremediation works best at sites with low to medium amounts of pollution. Plants remove harmful chemicals from the ground when their roots take in water and nutrients from polluted soil, streams, and groundwater ... Once inside the plant, chemicals can be stored in the roots, stems, or leaves; changed into less harmful chemicals within the plant; or changed into gases that are released into the air as the plant transpires (breathes)." - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2001"


"Abstract
Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) was used to examine its capability as a renewable resource to decontaminate heavy metal polluted soils. The influence of heavy metals on the fibre quality was of special interest. Determination of heavy metal content was carried out by means of atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS). Four different parts of the plant were examined: seeds, leaves, fibres and hurds. In each case, the concentration relation was Ni > Pb > Cd [ Notation: Ni - Nickel greater than Pb  - Lead, greater than Cd - Cadmium]. However, the heavy metal accumulation in the different parts of the plant was extremely different. All parts of hemp plants contain heavy metals and this is why their use as a commercially utilisable plant material is limited. We found that the highest concentrations of all examined metals were accumulated in the leaves. In this field trial, hemp showed a phytoremediation potential of 126 g Cd (ha vegetation period)−1. We tested the fibre quality by measuring the pure fibre content of the stems and the fibre properties after mechanical separation. In addition, the fibre fineness was examined using airflow systems and image analysis. The strength was measured by testing single fibre bundles with a free clamping distance of 3.2 mm using a universal testing device. Finally, we compared the results from the stems and fibres from trials on heavy metal polluted ground with hemp stems and fibres from non-polluted ground. Since there was no comparable unpolluted area near the polluted one, reference values were taken from an area quite far away and subsequently with a different soil composition and also exposure to different meteorological conditions. Thus, the observed differences are only partially caused by the heavy metal contamination."


We're talking hemp, thistle, sunflowers and the ever powerful mushrooms, etc. to demonstrate how phytoremediation works, in this page in the context of absorbing heavy metals from the soil.

"The Use of Phytoremediation for Hydraulic Control of Contaminants 

Plants can act as hydraulic pumps when their roots reach down toward the water table and establish a dense root mass that takes up large quantities of water. Poplar trees, for example, can transpire between 50 and 300 gallons of water per day out of the ground. The water consumption by the plants decreases the tendency of surface contaminants to move towards groundwater and into drinking water. The use of plants to rapidly uptake large volumes of water to contain or control the migration of subsurface water is known as hydraulic control. There are several applications that use plants for this purpose, such as riparian corridors/buffer strips and vegetative caps."




"For Pb [lead], a major soil contaminant, no hyperaccumulator species has been identified. However, several species, such as hemp dogbane (Apocynum cannabinum), common ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia), nodding thistle (Carduus nutans), and Asiatic dayflower (Commelina communis), were shown to have superior Pb accumulating properties (Berti and Cunningham, 1993). Practices have been developed to increase the potential of common nonaccumulator plants for Pb phytoextraction. Particularly, the uptake-inducing properties of synthetic chelates open the possibility of using high biomass producing crops for Pb phytoextraction. Under chelate-induced conditions, maize (Huang and Cunningham, 1996) and Indian mustard (Blaylock et al., 1997) have been successfully used to remove Pb from solution culture and contaminated soil, respectively. Physical characteristics of soil contamination are also important for the selection of remediating plants. For example, for the remediation of surface-contaminated soils, shallow rooted species would be appropriate to use, whereas deep-rooted plants would be the choice for more profound contamination. "




"Soil pollution caused by heavy metals is one of the major problems throughout the world. To maintain a safe and healthy environment for human beings, there is a dire need to identify hyperaccumulator plants and the underlying genes involved in heavy metals stress tolerance and accumulation. The goal of this research is to explore the potential of hemp as a decontaminator of heavy metals by identifying the two important heavy metals responsive genes, glutathione-disulfidereductase (GSR) and phospholipase D-α (PLDα). The results revealed heavy metals accumulation; Cu (1530 mg kg−1), Cd (151 mg kg−1), and Ni (123 mg kg−1) in hemp plants’ leaves collected from the contaminated site. This shows the ability of the hemp plant to tolerate heavy metals, perhaps due to the presence of stress tolerance genes. In this study, partial sequences of putative GSR (215 bp) and PLDα (517 bp) genes were identified, responsive to heavy metals stress in hemp leaves. Both genes exhibited 40–60% sequence identity to previously reported genes from other plant species. Glutathione binding residues and conserved arginine residues were found identical in a putative GSR gene to those of other plant species, while the phospholipids binding domain and catalytic domain were found in the PLDα gene. These results will help to improve our understanding about the phytoremediation potential of hemp as well as in manipulating GSR and PLDα genes in breeding programs to produce transgenic heavy-metals-tolerant varieties."


"Industrial hemp cultivars, Zolo-11, USO-31 and Zolo-15, were tested for their ability to accumulate U and Pb in the above-ground biomass. Plants were grown in soils with an average content of U 336_1 mg/kg (OH), Pb 911_53 mg/kg (NJ), or Pb 571_86 mg/ (farm soil). Results demonstrated that hemp is potentially a good phytoremediation crop. This fast growing, high biomass crop grew normally in the Pb- or U-contaminated soil. Industrial hemp responded positively to Phytotech's amendments and accumulated up to 5,447 mg/kg Pb and up to 560 mg/kg U from the soils that contained just 571 mg/kg Pb and 336 mg/kg U respectively. Cultivars of industrial hemp significantly differ in the ability to accumulate Pb and U, hence extensive screening may produce cultivars with better phytoremediation capacity."


"Radiation Levels of the Bridgeton landfill will be controllable under certain circumstances as it relates to surface and subsurface soil properties.

Specifically the surface of the existing soil to a depth of 8 feet. This is also the area and depth of the soil contaminates that are causing all the health issues associated with nuclear waste that are plaguing the residents of the Bridgeton and Cold Water Creek region."

"Safety Recommendations • Longer vertical steel casing • Complete cement bond between casing and well along entire well depth • Proper encasement for the storage/disposal of drilling waste, flow-back fluids and produced water • Treatment for soil and ground water at polluted sites – Phytoremediation and bioremediation of organic pollutants – Modeling movement in groundwater • Establish federal and world law regarding the safe practices for the use of fracking • Disclosure of fracking fluid" 




"REMEDIATION Once the land has been prepared for planting a wider variety of remediation plants may be grown to deal with the contamination. Various different processes occur within the plants to deal with the contaminants, and specific plants must be selected to appropriately deal with the various types of contamination.

Hemp's a highly versatile crop which may be used in the phytoremediation process. The plants are not affected by pests so no pesticides are required, and they grow extremely fast smothering any competing weeds. In addition to the employment generated during the remediation process the hemp may also be harvested and used to generate new long term industries. The fi bre yielded may be used for textiles, paper or as a low embodied energy building material and therefore employment opportunities can be created in the production, processing and manufacture of hemp based products such as housing, clothing and paper. The spin-off industries created should become economically sustainable helping to regenerate the wider area. Hemp branded products may command a premium using eco-friendly marketing to inflate their value and therefore ensure a position in the marketplace."


         


Conclusions 1. The addition of anaerobic sewage sludge in high doses to pot experiments increased height one and a half and weight two-sevenfold of hemp. 2. At the conditions of heavy metals very low concentrations in the substratum, as at presented experiment the most heavy metals are [accumulated] in roots. The sorption of zinc and nickel at the greatest amount took place by root, copper at the greatest amount was accumulated in leaf. 3. The acquired results showed that it is advisable to dewater mesophilic anaerobic sewage sludge by fibrous hemp growing. The concentrations of Zn - 30 mg/dm3 , Cu - 5.6 mg/dm3 and Ni - 2.5 mg/dm3 mg/dm3 can be removed from soil-sludge substratum by fibrous hemp growing and did not cause a reduction of hemp height and weight.
