BP Says It's Safe To Eat Sea Food From The Gulf

BP jumped the gun a little bit when launching their new commercial featuring a fisherman of the Gulf. In the commercial, the fisherman says, BP cleaned up the oil spill, paid him for his loss and it is safe to eat the lobster from the Gulf again. Apparently, they didn't know about the new reports being put out by Samantha Joye, from the University of Georgia on Saturday at a conference. A marine scientist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia says, the oil isn't degrading as planned and it has desecrated part of the sea life in the Gulf of Mexico. "Magic microbes consumed maybe 10 percent of the total discharge, the rest of it we don't know," Joye said, later adding: "there's a lot of it out there." Joye and her colleges took 5 expeditions and took 250 cores of the sea floor stretching across stretching across 2,600 square miles. Joye says the oil is choking the bottom dwelling sea creatures.  Bp is claiming it is safe to eat sea food from the Gulf. I think they are just thinking about the bottom line, making money and they are not too concerned about the dangers of people eating sea food from the Gulf. I wonder if they are eating sea food from the Gulf or if they would feed it to their families. My guess is, probably not.


  1. I wouldn't want to eat any sea food from the gulf yet, probably not for decades. I tend to believe the word of the marine biologist, not BP who is trying to salvage their reputation.

    Thanks for the follow! I am now following you back.

  2. Me neither. I have been avoiding sea food in general, just in case. You never really know where it comes from.

  3. Yeah, it is too early to be eating food out of the Gulf. Way too early.
