Gulf Oil Spill Leaves Behind Cancer Causing Agents

From April 20 to July 15, the BP oil spill dumped millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf. The residuals are in the form of massive levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), with some of them containing cancer causing agents or carcinogens.  It hasn’t been completely confirmed whether the agents have been found in the wildlife, but blue crab larvae had a mixture of dispersant and oil in its shell.  So the chemicals they used to break up the oil is the same chemical that could be found in our food.

Mississippi, Florida and Alabama also have found to be contaminated, but nowhere near the levels found in Louisiana waterways.  The air has also been tested in these areas and the levels in Louisiana dwarf those in those states.  The researchers from Oregon State University told Huffington Post that the numbers  for PAHs were “40-fold” of the numbers they found between May and June.

Let’s pray that the research will go on because if these carcinogens can be found in blue crab larvae, the teeny tiny droplets can show up in everything easily.  Read more here on the study.
