Will the FDA join the chorus?

This sentence is from a jointly signed letter to FDA Commissioner, Margaret Hamburg, by Sen. Landrieu and Sen. Vitter:

Unfortunately, many consumers still believe that Gulf seafood is unsafe, in part because some groups continue to spread misinformation and unscientific claims that deny what this testing has proven."'s your "unscientific" opinion from "un-scientists".  In other words, scientists who haven't been on BP's payroll like LSU's Irv Mendelsshon and  Ed Overton (yes, I can back that up with documentation):

Science of the Spill: Presentations on Emerging Impacts of the BP Oil Disaster

The first presentation is Dr. Ed Cake, Marine Biologist and Biological Oceanographer, Gulf Environmental Associates:

A decade...maybe two...for our oyster population to recover.  Aside from the safety of eating them, they simply aren't reproducing.

The second presentation is Dr. Scott Milroy, Marine Biologist and Biological Oceanographer at the University of Southern Mississippi:

Science of the Spill:  The Emerging Impacts of the BP Oil Disaster - Dr. Scott Milroy from Jason Berry on Vimeo.

The third presentation is by Dr. Wilma Subra, Environmental Chemist at Subra Incorporated and LEAN Technical Advisor:

Science of the Spill:  The Emerging Impacts of the BP Oil Disaster - Dr. Wilma Subra from Jason Berry on Vimeo.

These are just a few of the "un-scientific" voices making claims.

You know?  If the FDA is stupid enough to actually make the claim Vitter and Landrieu are asking them to, people are not just going to get sick...BP will have all the stroke they need to walk away from the damage they did to our seafood industry and ecology.  Do you think they understand that...Vitter and Landrieu?
