I and mine are not going into that water this summer. We have not eaten Gulf seafood since the spill.
What do you all think?

I understand you to be saying that it wont kill you instantly, so its no big deal. Yes, you can bathe in petrol, and you wont die right off. Similarly, you can jog through fukushima right now, and you likely wont drop dead.
If you hold mercury in your hand, you wont drop dead....but the effects on your neurological tissues will likely be extensive, and the effects upon your children can be catastrophic.
In no wise would I tell the people around fukushima prefecture, "hey, no one has dropped dead yet from the radiation, so just keep eating the fish and drinking the tea, and you should be fine with little more than a stomach ache....for now".

It would be interesting to do this with the amount of oil spilled by BP accident just for comparison purposes, something like that might help people realize how big of an event this was. We are destroying our planet
I still think that the seafood is best avoided, as well as swimming in the gulf. I would rather err on the side of caution than hurt my family or myself.. I do agree that the corexit is the more dangerous long term problem.
