Indeed, we are finding that oil is showing up all over the Gulf both underwater in the form of plumes and on our beaches and coastlines. Our research indicates that PAHs (polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons) are present in shrimp from the impacted areas. And the PAHs in the waters off Florida are at levels 43 times the levels of shrimp from inland, low-impact areas sampled in Louisiana. In our estimation, it may take eight months before the toxic soup BP left in the Gulf has had substantial enough biodegradation to announce an ‘all clear’ on seafood.

Simply Green? You make me want to puke. You waste your time by saying you dip your hands in "Simple Green"! There is a HUGE difference between Simple Green and the toxins that were spewing out of that site for months! You have any idea of the gases, different chemicals, etc., that came out of there?
They are actually finding the toxins that are in the oil in the blood of the people who live down there. Its horrifying because they’re cumulative and they’re heavy metals and toxins… We used three different doctors, and the exact same thing that is being found in the water and the air and the soil is now in the blood. This is the kind of stuff that causes cancer and death. This is not just in the workers that we’ve had tested, but also in residents… The worst part about that is we haven’t even gotten to the Corexit testing yet. This is just the oil, the polyaromatic hydrocarbons, the heavy metals, the arsenic. And they’re not just people who are right on the beach, some people are really inland.

See if this one works:
If this doesn't work, you might go directly to the web page and re-post it for me...Because this is important!

i find it a bit amazing that people are so un-receptive to critical analysis on a CONSPIRACY WEBSITE. I mean, clearly there are problems with the methodology, and the people involved raise eyebrows in terms of their potential motives. If this was an 'official' story, people would tear it to shreds. But because it supports some folks pre-conceived notions, the desire to actually fact-check a bit seems close to non-existent.
There is no way to be sure at this point. Though she stated, “Friends a few miles away… are having [a] similar situation. They are now thinking of getting their water tested.”
One of our dogs had severe diarrhea for a week [in early May]. Neighbors have reported similar findings.

I don't think the rain is toxic....yet, but it could be, and we need to know!
good indicator of toxicity are grass & trees.
And just remember who has a record for lies and deception. It's BP, Nalco, Chase Morgan et al. Not the people who are paying out of their own pocket to have their water tested.
