In the past few weeks, independent scientists, fishermen, journalists, and advocates have taken testing of Gulf waters, sand, and seafood into their own hands.  The results prove that the Gulf still has dangerous levels of oil and toxic dispersants from the BP disaster, despite claims from federal agencies and BP.
