Default Loophole allows sale of tainted fish without warning

Loophole allows sale of tainted fish without warning
Posted on June 10th, 2009

EarthNews Archive Loophole allows sale of tainted fish without warning
excerpt from above:
Quote:
GreenWire: Restaurant and fish market patrons are buying Great Lakes whitefish that are potentially contaminated with dioxin without warning because of a loophole in federal regulations.

The Food and Drug Administration does not screen for dioxin a potentially cancer-causing chemical and has no guideline for safe contamination levels, and so the commercial stocks can be sold nationally without warning.

A lot of the big fish eaters here HAVE developed cancer.
I've always wondered if there was a link to cancer from consuming fish.
I am a big fish eater- More from up river though. I'm assuming there are more toxins in the bay and the river is more safe for eating fish from?
Years ago we even drank the river water but I wouldn't anymore.
