Researchers are accusing the FDA for not being tough enough on safety after the BP oil spill in the Gulf. They report that seafood (especially seafood without fins and scales - my emphasis) are found with very high and dangerous levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) - PAHs are chemicals found in oil and industrial pollution, and are known to be cancer causing agents, and culprit in birth defects and liver damage - http://www.drhotze.com/unsafe-contamination-levels-in-tainted-seafood

Now that is something which is really serious. However, having said that it is also worth noting that since past years a lot of pollution has resulted. So the FDA probably should not be the only body which takes care of tests and so on. There should be more thoruough checking by more than one body who will be able to check each other and avoid such errors which could cause harm and possible deaths.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee would love to hear from you. She is always on the heels of congress to pass bills that does not limit pollution control and check to just any one agency.
