  Armed services are urged to stock kitchens with Gulf seafood  excerpt:
 
Smith said that while unprecedented levels of testing of seafood post-spill have proved its safety, "I think we are going to have to test for along time to constantly reassure the consumer that the seafood is safe."
 
The still unanswerable question is the long-term effect of the oil spilled and the dispersants used to break it up, effects that might not show up for years. "We don't know that answer and I don't think there's a scientist that could give you a definitive answer," Smith said. :o

I'm glad I am almost vegan.

I did have some lobster though about a month ago.

Is there a guilt emoticon?

This is so expected it is something of a cliché.
 
Quote

BP officials tried to take control of a $500m fund pledged by the oil company for independent research into the consequences of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, it has emerged.
 
Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show BP officials openly discussing how to influence the work of scientists supported by the fund, which was created by the oil company in May last year.

BP anniversary

The trauma continues, the food chain is destroyed, people now dying as well from the dispersants. U.S. disgusts me, this is worse than Katrina.

This is SO disgusting and so THIRD world. But I love the 'old' CDC description of Cholera.

Quote
Cholera has been very rare in industrialized nations for the last 100 years; however, the disease is still common today in other parts of the world, including the Indian subcontinent and sub-Saharan Africa.


Although cholera can be life-threatening, it is easily prevented and treated. In the United States, because of advanced water and sanitation systems, cholera is not a major threat; however, everyone, especially travelers, should be aware of how the disease is transmitted and what can be done to prevent it.

Travelers? In other parts of the world?  :confused Oysters in Florida making people sick with Cholera Duh, surprise.

The dispersants used by BP after the Deep Water Horizon explosion that left oil gushing into the Gulf for so long, may have been the stupidest most destructive thing to do. The dispersants have a way getting under the skin of humans, imagine the marine life deformities that can last up to 3 generations. Not sure what it can do to humans. And the die-off is getting much worse.

Since the spill, over 700 dolphin carcasses have washed up on shore, indicating[/size]thousands upon thousands of dolphin deaths[/color][/size] that are likely linked to the oil spill.  The rate at which dead dolphins are being found on shore is many times the rate considered normal, such that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has [/color][/size]termed it an “unusual mortality event[/color][/size].”  Sea turtles have been impacted especially hard as well.  [/color][/size]600 sea turtle strandings were documented in 2010[/color][/size]—six times the average annual rate—and [/color][/size]the deaths continue[/color][/size], with 87 strandings reported within the first two months of 2012, meaning the dieoffs could be getting worse.[/color]
