Well for one, you should clean your fish.

Secondly, you can ingest quite a lot of oil before it becomes toxic.

Last, it isn't the dousing, it is the filter fish eating it over and over again and concentrating it in their system. Then the game fish eat the filter fish and they ingest the concentrated version. That is where the problem lies. Eating what looks like a perfectly good Oyster could have a lot of the worst parts of the oil in it. Eating a perfectly good Flounder or Grouper could have several of the toxic Oysters in it.

Oh, are fishing companies in that region shutting down shop because their product is too safe to eat?

Great, the oil is making it's way inland, in Louisiana. Pretty soon it won't be safe to eat fish or shellfish from brakish water, or river water.

This is bad, really bad!

Heard this on Cnn, just a few minutes ago!

I cant wait to see the F.D.A. roll up their sleeves close their eyes and roll that approved sticker out of their ass.

Those hookers play a trickier hand than Long John Silvers hooked hand.

Here's a bit of the conversation I had with someone online. I LOVE seafood, but.....

(6:46:03 PM) them: I'm not going. Had China King for lunch, still full.
(6:46:10 PM) me: Oh
(6:46:18 PM) them: And, LOL
(6:46:35 PM) them: Prob do China King Sunday... they're doing crab legs.
(6:46:41 PM) me: Ok
(6:46:49 PM) me: I'd be careful about the seafood, tho

(6:46:59 PM) them: It treat you badly?
(6:47:33 PM) me: The BP oil spill? Seafood lives in the sea? Most of the stuff comes from the gulf...
(6:48:09 PM) them: Not all. Or else we'd be out completely.
(6:48:18 PM) them: There's Atlantic seafood too.
(6:48:54 PM) me: well, Obama is also calling the stuff in the gulf edible- which means he's trying to sneak the contaminated stuff in
(6:49:15 PM) them: Obama has no clue what he's talking about.
(6:49:22 PM) me: Still!
(6:49:33 PM) me: That's russian roulette with one's stomach
(6:49:41 PM) them: He's just trying to make it sound less bad than it is.
(6:49:46 PM) them: Then stay at home.
(6:50:01 PM) me: I'll eat the other stuff!
(6:50:10 PM) me: Geeze- I just gotta watch the seafood
(6:50:23 PM) them: That's your main diet there.
(6:50:52 PM) me: I know. I better learn how to eat chicken and veggies.

(6:51:04 PM) them: heh
(6:51:08 PM) them: Weenie.
(6:51:17 PM) them: I had shrimp and fish earlier.
(6:51:27 PM) me: I'm a weenie because I dont want to gamble?
(6:51:45 PM) them: Yup
(6:52:22 PM) me: We'll see who lives longer- the weenie or the non weenie.
(6:52:35 PM) them: heh

Ya know... I'd rather be a cautious weenie than a dead non weenie. Tho to be honest, I dont see much to live for any more... the one place I was gonna move is slowly being surrounded by an oil slick of epic proportions, the company responsible is happily placing toxins in the water to 'make the oil go away', and my fave food of all time, seafood, is basically inedible. Probably soon to be dead.

Thanks BP. I hope you rot in Hell.

Awful - how could any sane person advocate any food in any disaster zone safe to eat, especially seafood, as Obama should be Ashamed of himself.

You would guess a statement of this magnitude would be said by GWB not Barry. Anyone who believes that the food in the sea is safer now that millions of gallons of oil are in the Gulf are absolute retards.

This is absolutely insane, and totally destroys what little credibility this man had left with anyone who has a functional brain and thought he was even trying.

I agree with the previous poster who said that this was a statement that one would expect from W, not from the wordsmith Obama... the liberals would have torn Bush to pieces over such a statement and left any Bush supporter trying to defend his stupidity yet again...

I posted the link to this article on my FaceBook page, and very curiously, the Obama-ites have absolutely nothing to say about it. What a surprise. Everyone else is horrified and wondering why the MSM hasn't said anything.

Also posted the links regarding the suicide of Israel PM's shrink as well as the link to the newest Corbett report (it is awesome this week). My FB friends are waking up finally.

God Bless~

Obama pronounces Gulf seafood safe to eat


www.wwltv.com

president Barack Obama says from the oil-stricken Gulf of Mexico that seafood from the region is safe to eat and announced a new coordinated effort to make sure it stays that way.

In remarks from Theodore, Ala., on Monday, Obama said that the government will step up its inspections and monitoring to help ensure that the Gulf Coast food industry is getting the kind of protection and certification it needs to sell its products around the country.

Obama said, "We don't want tragedies on top of the tragedy we're already seeing."

The president had high praise for the Gulf seafood he at
(visit the link for the full news article)



Obama is full of shyte. THat's why 7 tons of shrimp were confiscated today for being fished in tainted water. That's why local labs working for the state are reporting, albeit in vague terms that there is oil present in various types of local seafood. Oysters are completely cut off now. Tell another lie Obama.

A chance for creative marketing types.

Local BP gas stations can give away a dozen prawns with every 5Litre oil purchase.

But seriously Obama is doing his best, and it is a catastrophic outcome, we are hearing this in other parts of the world and we can only sympathise with the common man in the Southern states.

i have a lot of respect and admiration for president obama.
but my gut feeling somehow tells me not to eat any seafood from the GOM atm.

i guess i might change my mind if i witness president obama and his daughters enjoying fresh seafood from the GOM.

That would be the equivalent of Kevin Rudd getting foil insulation in the Lodge?

I am sorry but this has to be the most retarded post I have seen in awhile how much oil can you intake before it is toxic? Unless you are a expert you should maybe think about keeping opinions like this to yourself before you get someone hurt.

All I can think of is Baghdad Bob. "The Americans aren't here they are lying, all is safe. " Meanwhile the cities behind him are on fire. The prez says while eating a shrimp, "eat the seafood from the gulf all is safe." Meanwhile the seafood is swimming around in crude oil, methane gas and God knows what else. I'll pass on the seafood for now thanks.

I feel badly, for the people on the Gulf Coast, Fishermen or not. ALL will have their lives desrtoyed. Living in the Pacific NW, I saw the Logging Industry destroyed, 20 years ago. THAT financially ruined hundreds of thousands of families. I wonder which area of the country, will be targeted next?
HOWEVER- if barry proclaims that it is safe- he should be PUBLICALLY FORCE-FED RAW OYSTERS, until it is proven- one way, or the other. In any event, no humans would be harmed. UNLESS HE's LYING. Mmm....

It isn't hard to look up how much oil is toxic? You don't have to be an expert? I know from personal experience that I can ingest how ever much oil it takes to turn my hands from pitch black and greasy to shiny pink and greasy!
Just work on a few cars get greasy up to your elbows, and then have somebody hand you a juicy cheeseburger, you'll see!

If you insist on actual statistics, then google it, find an MSDS. Haven't you ever had Castor Oil? Haven't you ever eaten Vaseline?

Oil is not very toxic at all. The problem will come from the filter fish breaking down the oil and concentrating it in their bodies, then the game fish eat a bunch of the filter fish and intake a concentrated amount, and then we eat the game fish and that isn't good.
