Ukrainian election fixers haven't discovered the simple small-plane crash

No--for them, it's dioxin poisoning.
Tests done at a hospital in Vienna confirmed that Viktor A. Yushchenko, the Ukrainian opposition candidate, had been poisoned with dioxin, doctors there said Saturday, providing an explanation for a broad array of painful and disfiguring conditions that plagued him during the last three months of the presidential campaign.

I had mistakenly assumed based on the above photos that his condition had gradually developed over the past four years, when actually it just started in September. Yushchenko has faced a series of horrible ailments, including severe abdominal pains, nausea, and back pain. And with dioxin poisoning, he faces longer-term prospects of cancer and other ailments.

And we sprayed tons and tons of this crap, in Agent Orange, on Vietnam.

This web page explains how you can shop to protect the world from dioxins (no chlorine-based products), and how you can eat to protect yourself (vegan). Also, don't run for political office.
