eyeless shrimp or lesions on fish.
The only other known factor at play is Corexit which is known to cause genetic damage and is listed as one of the most toxic substances by the EPA in
their chemical workers handbook.
Forces are at work to create a world where only Corporations are capable of supplying the world it's food -and life. Destroying ocean life is an easy
way to create a greater need for bio-engineered crops and livestock in a place where few people go and even less can seen or tested.
Something on the order of 40% of all the world's protein is supplied by seafood. The Gulf of Mexico is a toxic mess and the effects of Fukushima are
not even being speculated upon yet. Indeed, the crisis there may yet worsen if the years of spent fuel rods become endangered.
2 events of such magnitude happening within a year of each other seems well, fishy to my conspiratorial side. People who have no problem ordering
bombs dropped on civilian populations would also have little compunction in my opinion in allowing or even ordering such catastrophes to occur. Life
is all about profits now, isn't it?
ETA - Ophiuchus; interesting that we reached similar conclusions as I was typing my post before yours appeared on the thread. S&F for you Loam. Good

All the more reason for people to start producing their own organic food.
If you have a spare room in your house or a large shed/barn or just a couple of acres to spare on your property, you can produce enough food to supply
a small town by yourself.
Verticle Horticulture and Aquaculture are a sustainable way to produce food by the crapload. People living in cities can now buy wall gardens (which
not only look cool in your livingroom, but also supply you with all the fruit and veg you'll ever need.
Look it up "Verticle Horticulture Verticle Aquaculture and Wall gardens".. Anyone can do it.
And it is getting cheaper to build the structures required too. You can buy Water tanks of different sizes and most of the equipmewnt to pump and
re-cycle water through them for a few thousand dollars. You can buy solar powered verticle farm kits for a few hundred dollars.
Lets see tptb try to make home farms illegal or contaminate your personal gardens and fish/shellfish stocks..lol
Here in AU, natural native plants such as Acacia family can be used to make bread from ground Acacia seed (it's actually better for you than regular
bread and wholegrain). Saltbush is edible and tastes great fried. There are tens of thousands of natural (non-gmo native plants across the country),
that can be ustilised without even requiering farming.
If big business wants to destroy the food chain, they have to completely remove the Australias forests all together, as around 65% of our plant
species are edible.
Now just recently the Australian Government tried to ban/outlaw Acacia and several other plants that contain trace ammounts of a substance thet (could
be harvested to make a narcotic), however in order to make such a plant illegal, they would have had to remove it from the wild as well as peopls
gardens. Acacia accounts for 94% of Australias forested middle story vegetation. lol could you see the AU people letting that happen...lol
Big business will never totally own the food market, it is impossible. Dosen't mean they won't try, bydestroying our environment. They can do some
real damage if people don't start taking a stand against it soon.
