One More Reason To Rein In Lobbiests

The fish lobby, in the person of Rick Berman, is now putting up billboards urging pregnant women to ignore federal guidelines based on scientific studies, about mercury levels in fish. Appalling. Somehow, I don't think he'll be rushing to take responsibility for the birth defects that result from people taking his bad advice.

Let's see, from my experience in the soils area, mercury vaporizes from soils after rainstorms. Should there be an advisory for pregnant women to stop breathing after heavy rainstorms?

Let's find real environmental concerns, such as lead.
