******COREXIT FACTS******* ...and BP says the fish are safe to eat! LMAO!
"Oil that would normally rise to the surface of the water is broken up by the dispersant into small globules that can then remain suspended in the water."

"Corexit 9527, considered by the EPA to be an acute health hazard, is stated by its manufacturer to be potentially harmful to red blood cells, the kidneys and the liver, and may irritate eyes and skin."

"Like 9527, 9500 can cause hemolysis (rupture of blood cells) and may also cause internal bleeding."

"Reportedly Corexit may be toxic to marine life and helps keep spilled oil submerged. There is concern that the quantities used in the Gulf will create 'unprecedented underwater damage to organisms.' Nalco spokesman Charlie Pajor said that oil mixed with Corexit is "more toxic to marine life, but less toxic to life along the shore and animals at the surface" because the dispersant allows the oil to stay submerged below the surface of the water."


...and my favorite!!!
"Corexit may also bioaccumulate, remaining in the flesh and building up over time. Thus predators who eat smaller fish with the toxin in their systems may end up with much higher levels in their flesh."


"predators who eat smaller fish" would that be humans as well????

but according to BP and TPTB the fish are just fine to eat....

move the letters around in COREXIT and you can easily spell TOXIC.

Massive death and massive injuries. Just so some giant corporation could hide the damage of their criminal incompetence.

Not good. It's amazing how blind the public really is. If I was living on the GOM, I would have tried to get out of there long ago, or tried to stay with relative somewhere else.
