No Wonder Europe Banned US Sea Food After BP Gulf Oil Spill; Feds Say Fish Exposed To Oil Safe To Eat In Weeks
by Alexander Higgins
“It’s not surprising that the EU doesn’t accept the US standards for seafood safety.
Just take the latest propaganda from the Government telling the sheeple that fish exposed to oil from the BP Gulf Oil Spill is safe to eat within a few weeks of contamination.
August 4, 2010, NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco Says Fish Contaminated With Oil Safe To Eat Within Weeks.
Fish metabolize hydrocarbons relatively rapidly and so if an adult fish, or a fish that would the size that fisherman would catch and bring to market, if that fish is exposed to oil it might be contaminated initially but it metabolizes — it naturally breaks down the oil.
And so after a period of time, on the order of weeks that fish is no longer unfit for human consumption, it has broken down the hydrocarbons, it is safe to eat.
