The summer’s of gatherings of families around a bushel of their favorite food picked with love and beer, is the very thing causing all the cancer in their loved ones and one of the reasons for John Hopkins Hospital.
For 40 years the Bay Foundation has overseen the water quality of the Chesapeake Bay only to help it get worse and worse year after year. Now the water is so polluted that not only do the oysters not live but the grasses won’t live either even with the hundred million dollar studies done by the people that are suppose to be in charge of the bay.
Where I come from if a company doesn’t do the job it was hired to do, they get FIRED! Truth is it’s more profitable to keep it just they way it is. The Bay Foundation continues to waste funding every year, the hospitals and the drug companies have job security and billions go to the bay foundations, MDE, EPA, NOAA, etc. to look the other way. W.H.Y.?
We must not continue to live this way, or would you rather watch your kids die from the poison food YOU feed them? Have you looked at a Maryland crab lately? Ask grandpa if they use to be brown.
Until they stop wasting Billions of Dollars on ways to get more money and doing nothing to HELP the Bay, we must do what we can to help save lives (crabs and people).
The solution is to purge the crabs of the contaminates. Soft shell crab operations have a 90% death rate because the crabs are put in bad bay water which is dumped though oyster shells and pumped back in because that’s the way it has been done for 40 years.
If you put the same crabs(hard or soft) in R O / DI brackish water not only does the death rate drop from 90% to 10% but the crap in the crab comes out making a sweet white true crab flavor that is safer to eat.
On the Mississippi River we had to purge mud catfish in much the same way just to eat them, all fish or crabs could be purged in the same manor. Just put a contaminated creature in the 99% pure H20(-) and the contaminates will leave the creature(+) into the water where the filter can pick it up.
We have many practical ideas for the Bay that don’t cost BILLIONS in studies and New Buildings, which we share freely with our fellow Americans and humanity.
Let’s get the funding to somebody that won’t spend it all on themselves and REALLY do something good with it.
