A study led by East Carolina University, with compadres from the University of Maryland, Oregon State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the U.S. Geological Survey, (but not any universities from Louisiana, Alabama, Florida or Mississippi?) confirmed that oil has affected the Gulf’s ecosystem not only during the blowout, but is also still entering the food system.
The BP oil spill has devastated beaches and fisheries along the Gulf coast. What does this disaster mean for our food supply? The answer really depends on who you ask.
