I think this story on lobsters has something missing. Red Tide from our freinds the Farmers who again are putting lives at risk from eating seafood. The story was just in the newspaper in which like always they leave out the cause of Red Tide. This is a warning like all around the country to eat limited amounts of seafood. Crabs have to be laced also which is my fight to clean all waterways around the country that are polluted from Agriculture. Congress and Epa like all are elected officials turn there heads andlet Agriculture be above the law and police itself which with farmers greed have now contaminated our water, air and the food we eat from overfertilizing and daily spraying of cancer chemicals that dont belong in the food supply. Some of the thirty dozen chemicals that were banned years ago are being used again in which is the reason Pennsylvania is the number one cancer state. People in this country have to write there political cronies and demand laws against farmers who have no liove for the environment or there neighbors which is happening here in Schuylkill County Pa. Fight to clean up our waters from Agriculture and rewarding farmers with billions of taxdollars has to stop because its been done for over twenty years while water quality got worse. Farmers are running for political offices across the country in which is how they became powerfull so never vote for farmers because they only take care of themselves. Amen

Went to Maine a few years back. Ordered Lobster. "Lazy Lobster" was on the menu for a couple of dollars more. Asked the waitress and she said that means it comes out already shelled. No brainer. Lobster, melted butter and a good beer. Paradise on earth.

I read a recent story about lobster as well.

I also read your post (several times), and it's clear that you didn't read the same article.

No facts, no particulars, just an illiterate collection of run-on sentences that yield no information, and make no sense.

Let me help you out here:

The report to which you seem to refer advises consumers to avoid the "tamale" in the lobster.(That's the green stuff, aka: the liver).

The tamale can contain toxins from an algae bloom - caused by some of the things you cited.

The rest of the lobster is completely safe, and free of these toxins.

So if you love lobster, and can do without the tamale, you can enjoy all you want, without any fear.
