Hazards of Oil Dispersants

Spraying dispersant on the oil slick does not exterminate the oil, it just spreads it out.It will take decades for the oil to be disposed of, which means for decades the oil and toxic disperants will be causing cancer, tumors, birth defects, mutations, lesions, organ failures, etc; Let alone being lethal to animals because it can enter skin and organs easily.

Dispersants are making the oil sink to the bottom, not only killing the coral reefs and other ocean floor sea creatures. Eventually in the future the oil will rise to the surface because about 99% of the original spilled oil is still in the ocean.

I am not sure if the corexit or the oil is worse, but together it's amazingly horrific.
