    What kills me are the ones who say " I've been eating them fish out of there for 20 years" What they do not realize is chemicals like these are stored in your fat FOREVER and once your body reaches it's limit, THEN you get cancer, or some other nasty disease to your eternal organs.. Now THAT is a fact ............. ;) THE CATKING !!!
