Food Integrity Now – E08 – The Oil Spill – The Effect on World Health
We all know about the ongoing disaster caused by the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. While the experts continue to debate how to plug the leak, not many are talking about the effects of the chemicals released both by the oil and the toxic dispersants being used to cover it up. Reports have shown that Corexit, the main dispersant being used by BP is four times more toxic than the oil in the water. Dispersants don’t even clean up the oil, they just spread it out. What effect will this have on fish, human health and the future of our oceans? What other alternatives exist for cleaning up the spill without the toxicity?
Join Carol Grieve’, Susan Wright and special guest, Mike Schott, CNC to find out.
