I used to love sea food but I am very, very leary of eating anything now.

Another unanticipated effect of warming oceans. One of millions to come.

Your're really not supposed to eat osyter anyway. They are toXic due to them being nature's cleaning filters of the oceans. Including clams and mussel.
