Hey, if it’s dead it can’t hurt you…right?
Federal officials say they test the subway sensors by releasing dead bacteria called B-subtilis. They say it is used in food supplements, has been rigorously tested and has no adverse health effects for low exposure in healthy people.
Well, Janet Napolitano, I know I don’t eat B. subtilis and I don’t go around breathing it in tunnels either.
Why don’t you stand in the tunnel and inhale deeply during the testing of it and tell us how it goes?
Watch a bunch of people have asthma attacks the day after they do their secret, summer solstice under the cover of darkness testing.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has announced a series of biological tests that they will be conducting in subway systems near Boston. DHS will be releasing bacteria into the MBTA tunnels, in what they say are tests to evaluate sensors installed in the tunnel system.
