Update on Hubby

Just to let you know, he does not stay in bed as much as he use to. He looks better, but I still have to look after him to make sure he takes a bath. His apatite is good and his memory is improving. Thanks for all your concerns and prayers===love, Margaret

Having Fish Tonight?

I received an email a while back from a lady named Beth Lowell, she works for Oceana and is a dedicated person. We should all be thankful for people like her. That is people that dedicate their lives in all fields that protect us from harm, especially in the food industry.

She says you don't have to be in the ocean to be able to appreciate it, Beth likes to walk the sandy beaches to unwind and collect seashells. This is her first time working for an organization whose goal specificically to protect the marine habitat. She says here at Oceana, I work on the Dirty Fishing Campaign to increase funding for marine mammal protection programs strengthen the Matine Mammal Protection Act.

Here is her message on the email= when you buy fish for dinner you probably think that the fish listed on the label is actually the type of fish you are buying. But what if the fish you cook for your family isn't what it says it is?

Recent studies have found that seafood may be mislabeled as often as 25 to 70 percent of the time, disguising species that are less desirable, cheaper or more readily available, which means you could be feeding your family mislabeled, unsustaimable fish.

The FDA has the power to enforce better labeling, increase inspections, and improve seafood safety, but they won't do them. We must tell the FDA that we want safe, legal and honestly labeled seafood.

You have the right to know where the fish you eat comes from, what kind was caught and if it was farmed.You should be able to trace your meal, if companies aren't telling you the truth about what fish you're buying, and follow health and safety laws.

I think we should find out where to go to post our opinions on this. I mean after all the government created the FDA, so they should be responsible for the FDAs action.
